Inside Information From Amazon’s Staff In India: Business Requirement Documents
This info. comes directly from Amazon’s boots on the ground in Hyderabad, India.
In this video I’m going to talk to you about the Business Requirement Documents (BRD) team. The BRD team works out of Hyderabad and these are the people that are torturing sellers all over the world with business verifications.
The gentleman that I spoke to told me that the 14 leadership principles are drilled into every single employee at Amazon. He agrees with the principles and sees the effect the principles have on both morale and the quality of work.
What he talked to me about in terms of business verifications is how to address the dreaded requirement of providing Amazon with a utility bill. The reason why Amazon is asking for utility bills in its verifications is that they’re trying to have a uniform system around the world. Amazon has the mindset that sellers are all paying electric, water, or other utilities. That doesn’t fit sellers in the United States who are often renting office space or warehouse space where utilities are paid by the landlords.
We talked about this at length. What we came to is that if you are an Amazon seller and Amazon is asking you for a utility bill, a document you can give in its place is a lease where utilities are addressed. You need to submit the entire lease, but you can also point out to Amazon staff the portion where utilities are addressed. This is just one tidbit of information that I was able to get by going to India and I think it was worth the entire trip.
