Ripoff Report's discussions with Sellers Playbook, Inc. have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Sellers Playbook, Inc. listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Sellers Playbook, Inc.'s principal, Mrs. Jessie Tieva, has informed us that the philosophy of Sellers Playbook is that their client’s success is the heart of the business. [continued below]....
..... As a successful entrepreneur, Mrs. Tieva feels it is critical to listen to their clients, respond properly and work with their unique needs to ensure success. By always putting their customers first, Mrs. Tieva hopes to maintain Sellers Playbook as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come. Another top executive, the “Director of Coaching”, Stephen Nagy told us that Mrs. Tieva's personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in service, understanding that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care". Sellers Playbook's “Director of Coaching Operations” says this, "We are one of the top companies for helping Amazon stores create and understand their own brands and source well-known brands and products. With us, you'll always receive a complex and customized approach to branding that comes from a team who consistently borrows strategies from large brands and adapts them to fit the financial needs of small Amazon businesses all over the world."

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Jessie Tieva during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards Sellers Playbook, Inc.

Sellers Playbook offers educational resources for individuals interested in becoming third party sellers on Amazon. They have been providing this service since 2008, and have developed relationships with suppliers over the years. Jessie Tieva stated the following about her company, "It has become nearly impossible for someone to start their own store and be successful right out of the gate with Amazon because of all the restrictions. For the consumer it's really good, there are a lot of people that buy knock off’s or fakes. This is why the rules are in place, it helps to protect the customers. Because of the relationships we have with suppliers, we have been able to offer our members access to the suppliers and then we have our own warehouse. We do warehousing and fulfillment to Amazon. It’s really a service that we’ve created with the platform with Sellers Playbook."

Leads for Sellers Playbook are primarily obtained through online marketing and events hosted by them in various cities. The initial event is free and to attend their three-day seminar it is an additional $1000. Ms. Tieva explained the sales and service process after the client signs on for their services, "we help source that [merchandise], we price it, we don’t mark up anything. That is the service we provide. We do all the negotiating for you, get it shipped over for you with other member’s product in a 40ft container truck. The product gets shipped to our warehouse, we sort and label it all, we upload it to the seller’s store for them, then we ship it to Amazon and then it gets marked Prime. Our members don’t have to touch the product at all. All they have to do is monitor their inventory and pricing."





CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – SELLERS PLAYBOOK INC.

During the on-site interview, Ms. Tieva was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Ms. Tieva expressed that their most common complaint arises when individuals who come to the free seminar don't want to pay the additional fee to attend the three-day seminar. She additionally stated the following, "those people aren’t our members. As far as our members go, we have very happy customers. We bend over backward for them. We want them to be happy, make money, and achieve their goals. We deal with many people on the front end that want everything for free, but this is a service and we don’t do anything for free."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Ms. Tieva expressed that they believe the comments were posted by an ex-employee, "I am 100% certain, that this past employer is the one making the comments on Ripoff Report. This person who said he was there during one of our workshops, we looked at our attendance roll, and they weren’t even there. We know now speaking with some other employees that have since left that company that the company is who is writing these comments. It is a competitor that wrote a lot of that stuff. It’s just too bad. Instead of trying to sabotage, and if they would focus on doing the right thing for their clients, it would solve a lot of their problems. They don’t need to sabotage other people." In order to further assure future and current clients, Ms. Tieva expressed that she has been in this business since 2008. This history has provided her with an impressive Rolodex of providers and an immense amount of knowledge. Additionally, they have a trademark license in 20+ states.

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to making things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Ms. Tieva further expressed their current customer service stance, "we strive to meet our customer's expectations. We go above and beyond in every way possible, and help our members make money. That is what people come to us to do. Not to just set up a store, but to help them become successful. That is our goal." She additionally stated, "we really jump through hoops to make sure they are satisfied. It doesn’t take much to make people happy and provide the service you say you are going to provide. If they have a valid complaint or even a suggestion we will listen and fix it."



Sellers Playbook is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "I think people are looking for validation these days. They want to make sure they verify and see what other people are saying about the company before they get involved. It means a lot to us to be a part of this in a positive way and get that stamp of approval from them."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Sellers Playbook ad pops up on Facebook, free one hour seminar around your city. I attended the free seminar, which is one hour sales pitch to get you to pay almost $1000 to attend a 3 day workshop which they claim to teach you everything you need to know about selling on Amazon.

 

I thought ok maybe i will give it a try. I asked the guy at the seminar if they will be selling me more stuff at the workshop, which now i remembered the was hesitating. Should have been a red flag to me. I signed up anyway. I thought let me check it out.

 

At the workshop, it is another 3 day sales pitch for you to sign up for Executive membership. They claim that they have great purchasing power that they can get you products that you will not be able to procure on your own becuase you do not have relationship with manufactures. They will help you do listing. They will help you prepare the products to ship to Amazon FBA center. They will also help you source any product you want to find, help you do marketing when you want to lauch new product. All sounds great. But becareful of all the fee they charge you.

 

If you only want to purchase and resell, you can join the membership that cost you $22,000. If you want to do proviate labeling of product, it will be a membership that will cost you $34,000. Now everything that they package for you will cost you $.80 to $.88 per item. Which they do not tell you, you have to really read what you are signing.

 

In the workshop, they ask you to run your credit score and use this trial code. All your credit inforamtion gets send to them if you use that code. I believe that website belong to them as well. I was too stupid to run my credit there. Then they tell me how i can use one of their financial agency to get fundings, how much i am approved, blah blah.

 

Now, if you decide to use their financial agency, you will need to sign a document that needs to be notorized. On that document, they will try to get you to pay them around $3000 after they have sucessfully get you the funding. The funding will be in forms of credit card.

 

Honestly i can't say if this company is legit business or scam, but i just know they are not very clear about their fees and they are not upfront with their agenda. Do not pay $1000 to go to the workshop if you plan on learning stuff. They really dont teach you anything that you can do on your own. Everything they teach you is what you can do if you become a member.  If you have about $40K to invest in something then this might be for you. But just pay sure to ask about all the fees that they will charge you.

 

I wish someone had posted something like this before i went to my workshop. They said that you can get your refund on the first day of workshop. If you fee like spending additional $40k is not in your plan, you might as well get the refund after first day of your workshop.
