Here are a few factors that you can consider when choosing the right service provider

Pricing for the services

There are a lot of service providers and they offer services with various pricing. And, it is really difficult to choose based on service pricing. Sometimes, the one who offers the service at high pricing are the ones who are equipped with good quality work. And sometimes, it may even be the reverse of it. So, it is really difficult to make a choice based on the pricing. Instead, when you are trying out for the first time you can choose the one that is competitively priced in the market. And if you are satisfied with their service, you can continue with the same service provider or you can even make a shift.

Star Rating

Star rating indicates old customers service experiences. Better the services, higher is the star rating. And going deeper, you can look into what exactly an old customer say about the quality of the services.

And not to miss, when you go through them you will get a rough idea of whether the service provider will satisfy your business requirements. This allows you to choose the right service provider.

Number of requests completed

This metric displays the total number of works that are completed by the particular service provider. You can consider this metric as one of the important criteria during the shortlisting process.

Consider looking into the website

The service provider’s website link is not actually provided in Amazon Seller Central. But you can consider looking for the website using the name of the service provider. When going through the website, you will get the consolidated and detailed idea. And when you go through a minimum of 5 websites of different service providers, you will get clarity on whom to go forward with.

Not to miss, try to contact the respective persons from the service provider company

Furthermore, you can try contacting the concerned person from the service provider company. You will be able to find the contact number or email address on their websites. It is better to reach out through a phone call. This will help you get better clarity and you will end up making the right choice when the conversation is with an actual person who is involved with the service.
