I am currently a FBA seller. During the weeks of Thanksgiving and Blackfriday, my sales easily tripled. Then I ran out of inventory.
After receiving the products from my supplier on the first week of December, I sent the products in and they are stocked again (though Amazon says they will be available in 3 days). So the customers can purchase the product, but they would be shipped after 3 days.
Now my sales are returning to the normal rate of pre-Thanksgiving.
My questions are...
1. Do sales slow down after Blackfriday and start picking back up as Christmas approaches?
2. Is my sales down not because of the regular pattern that everyone experiences, but because I ran out of inventory and had to re-stock?
