Vendor Express was a third seller option apart from Seller and Vendor Central that helped Amazon sellers sell in bulk. Vendor Express was created so small sellers didn’t have to go through the exclusivity of Vendor Central’s portal. As usual, Amazon didn’t say exactly why they’re getting rid of the three-year experiment, but said in an email, “We’re constantly looking for ways to improve the selling experience on Amazon. After careful evaluation, we’ve decided to retire Vendor Express and refocus the business on other selling programs.”
