TIP: Be customer-centric. A few negative reviews on your seller account can be detrimental. Don’t get upset with returns. For example, you can refund a customer’s money and let them keep the product and look at it as an opportunity to ask for a 5 star review in return. An added benefit, is they can tell all of their friends and refer you more customers.
