Have you recently received a suspension notice from Amazon? Is your account blocked and funds being held for 90-days?

The reason Amazon suspends an account is usually due to low feedback, complaints against you, the type of items you’re selling or they link you to blocked or suspended account and decide to shut you down. It’s not fair right?

It’s said that only around 10% to 20% of customers actually leave feedback. It’s a chore on it’s own to get enough feedback to make Amazon happy. On top of that what if you’re too slow on delivery.. one complaint against a brand new account is usually enough to get a suspension. Not to mention a complaint of the QUALITY of items you’re selling is usually an instant suspension for any seller. Selling high-end items on Amazon is risky business.

After an Amazon suspension you can attempt to fight it and reply back for reinstatement (Amazon will listen) but the chances of getting your account back is pretty slim. Especially for A-to-Z issues or selling high-risk items. If you just made a simple mistake for example slow delivery of items you may get a second chance and get your suspension reversed. I wouldn’t hold you breath for a reinstatement though.

There are ways to get back on Amazon after a suspension. If you’re trying to get back on Amazon and you’re having a hard time let me here about it and I’ll try to help.
