Sept. 2006

Amazon launched the “Fulfilled by Amazon” program and Sparkfish became one of the very first merchants to participate in that program and before that we had been selling on Amazon as a third part fulfilling our own sales. Basically, we’ve been selling Amazon for nearly as long as it’s possible to do so

Over that time period, we’ve learned from many experiences, both good and bad, successes and failures. We’ve learned, as can only be learned from the school of hard knocks, the details and unconventional nuances of what it takes to be successful

We take the responsibility of representing a customers' brand very seriously. Focusing on working with Brands we can relate to and have a high degree of confidence we are providing our customers with the highest quality products, are key drivers in our selection process.

The intelligent and practical use of technology allows us to make timely replenishment decisions, identify new opportunities and risks, manage inventory, cover shortfalls in Amazon's systems, manage pricing, measure and manage advertising and marketing campaigns, and succeed in staying on the leading edge of an ever changing environment and keep a competitive advantage over other sellers

We learned very quickly that as much as anything, selling on the Amazon Marketplace is a data and technology driven endeavor. Since our inception we’ve invested heavily in building tools, technology, and information systems for collecting, storing, analyzing and using marketplace and supply chain data in real-time.

We believe that mentality should be the same for our vendors and manufacturers. We pride ourselves in our relationships and our ability to add value to that relationship. We believe the only way to grow is together and want to be more than just a name on a PO. We care about the brands we work with. The ability to pick up the phone, send an email or text and actually know the person on the other end has some serious value. We look forward to getting to know you and your products.
