How do we Know that we Can Solve Your Brand Problems?
Suppliers tell us that they experience one or more of the following problems:
Wildly fluctuating and Diving Prices: With multiple sellers (including Amazon itself)
on their listings, brand pricing has lost integrity. Many sellers price either wildly high
just to appear on the listing for research purposes or the seller prices wildly low,
violating your MAP pricing.
MAP Violations: MAP violations create angst amongyour
brick & mortar retailer partners.
Lack of Expertise: Brands often lack the expertise needed to effectively manage all
the “moving parts” of the various marketplaces (e.g. Amazon, eBay, Walmart).
Inventory Management: Brands with a growing number of products find it
increasingly difficult to keep the right products in stock at Amazon warehouses.
Ways We Add Value to Your Brand
What Sets us Apart?
Think about this fact for a moment. There are more than 2 million 3rd party sellers just on Amazon.com alone! That means when these buy and sell your product on Amazon….these sellers don’t do anything but sell your product. They couldn’t care less about your brand. They simply compete for the buy box to make a sale. And don’t even think for a minute these sellers care about product reviews or customer satisfaction.
In essence, the run-of-the-mill seller adds NO VALUE to your brand. They merely piggyback on your existing brand reputation.
We have long been an online retailer of physical products of all kinds. We are constantly buying from our suppliers and selling on top eCommerce platforms (e.g. Amazon). But our priority is not to just sell your products, but to also implement strategies to increase your market share.
When WE sell your products online, we seek to ensure that your brand is protected. And even better, sales and profit growth for your brand(s).
When we succeed, you succeed. It’s a Win-Win-Win scenario for you, us, and the customer!
And best of all, we charge NO FEES. We profit the same way we always have….by making a reasonable profit margin on the products we buy from our suppliers (YOU) for resale online. That’s it!

What Sets us Apart?
MAP POLICY ASSISTANCE
The enforcement of your MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) policy is the top issue facing brand owners today. We are well equipped to help you
- Create and implement a MAP policy for your brand(s)
- Assist in the enforcement of your MAP policy
- Assist in eliminating non-compliant sellers who care ONLY about making a sale at the lowest price possible
AMAZON BRAND REGISTRY

OPTIMIZED PRODUCT LISTINGS
Few brands understand what it takes to optimize product listings for the search engine algorithms of the top eCommerce platforms. This is what we do. Sargasso Inc. specializes in listing optimization and we can ensure that your products are listed in a manner that ensures you have the best images, sales copy, and keywords for the highest possible sales volume.
As an online retailer ourselves, we order and stock inventory for eCommerce as our primary business. In fact, we have shipped hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of inventory, at cost, to Amazon fulfillment centers. You can be assured that we know the pitfalls and workarounds when dealing with Amazon FBA issues. W
The benefit to you, our supplier, is that YOU don’t have to deal with these issues because once we place a purchase order from you, for resale on Amazon, inventory management becomes OUR responsibility, not yours. You can focus on manufacturing, product development and other tasks more strategic to manufacturers and leave the Amazon headaches to us.
CUSTOMER FEEDBACK MANAGEMENT
You can also expect us to proactively manage customer feedback. Product reviews are important. We will manage and report customer feedback for you to ensure that your brand is always seen in the best possible light.
- Maximize positive product reviews
- Immediately address concerns based on negative product reviews, and report back to you, our valued supplier, so that you can address product issues
- Address any immediate delivery, packaging, or product issues based on comments/feedback
AMAZON BRAND REPORTING
On a monthly basis, suppliers who choose us for FBA Select will receive a monthly report that includes the following:
- Last months sales by product ID
- Positive product reviews of your brand resulting from our Amazon sales efforts
- Negative product reviews left by customers
- Listing issues that affect your brand (e.g. multiple listings with various versions of your brand name due to the efforts of careless 3rd party sellers
- Names of new 3rd party sellers appearing on listings of your branded products, and potential non-compliance with your MAP policy
- Names of 3rd party sellers appearing on listings of your branded products who we believe may be selling inauthentic (counterfeit) products
Helping You Attract New Customers
Most 3rd party resellers ad zero value to a brand. Instead, all they do is the ride of the coattails of the brand equity that you’ve built.
We take a much different approach.
When we start to buy products from your for resale, our goal is to help your brand attract new customers and increase market share by leveraging our advertising & marketing talents – and when we succeed, so do you.
In addition, you can also expect us to proactively manage product feedback from current customers to ensure your brand is always seen in the best possible light.
We Don’t Succeed Unless YOU Suceed
Formula for Success:
Amazon is an unique e-Commerce opportunity and if you successfully tap into the power of Amazon,
it can become one of your biggest sales channels. But Amazon is highly complicated with many inconsistencies and idiosyncrasies to learn and deal with.
Before choosing clients to work with,we will discuss the 4 key components that are a must before we will move forward.
We have a proven process for successfully selling on Amazon. Most sellers do not have knowledge or a system for successfully selling on Amazon. We know what we are doing. And we do not make any money unless our client’s are successful.
