Do sponsoring Amazon merchants have different posting requirements from other Amazon merchants?
Amazon merchants whose deals are posted here (whether by individuals or by the merchants themselves) must have a minimum of 1000 lifetime feedback ratings.
Is there a separate, less stringent requirement for Amazon merchants who pay to sponsor deals? I'm referring to today's sponsored deal by an Amazon merchant with only 963 lifetime feedback ratings.
I'm sure there's a perfectly logical, reasonable answer. I'm just curious to know what it is.
