2 Orange Alerts in One Week / Fuzzy Math / Beauty Sellers Axed?
1️⃣ The suits were a bit fussy this week. Amazon is “reviewing” accounts for 30 days for “drop shipping,” even though many did not drop ship. Funds are being held. Some large accounts have their funds being held in reserve for no apparent reason, and AH does not give any meaningful explanation; ASGTG24 is Jan 10th with a great lineup this year.
2️⃣ “The owner and operator of this account should attend this verification interview. Depending on your business model, we understand there may be additional business partners who are integral to your business operations. These additional parties may also attend the verification interview, as long as they have substantiating documentation showing their relationship to the business.”
3️⃣ Project Retail brings the best Amazon brands to retail stores including Walmart, Dicks Sporting Goods, PetSmart, Tractor Supply, Academy Sports, Nordstrom & Target Plus. We are not your standard sales rep group that sells a single retailer. We are your wholesale arm that covers the entire US market. Our in-house design, merchandising and operations teams handle everything to launch at big box stores. If you are ready to expand your business beyond Amazon, email email@example.com to schedule your retail ready analysis. (Sponsored)
4️⃣ I spoke to this seller who got unfairly suspended for selling “unsuitable goods,” which is basically bogus.
5️⃣ “We received your submission but do not have enough information to address the issues with your listings at this time. We no longer accept consider Plan of Action (POA) documents for appealing product condition customer complaints.”
6️⃣ Very strange UK email. “We have become aware of activity on your account that is not in compliance with Amazon policies. As a result, disbursements on your Selling on Amazon payment account are withheld by Amazon Payments UK Limited and Amazon Payments Europe S.C.A. while we investigate this matter.”
7️⃣ Fuzzy Math. “It was issued after the date we specified. You must provide an invoice from after 11/27/2021 and within the last 365 days.”
8️⃣ Some sellers reported ASINS being delisted that showed up on the dashboard as “safety” with no appeal option and no clear next steps.
9️⃣ Many sellers selling beauty products were suspended with very little communication from SP.
🔟 The verified sellers group has been a big hit on the Whatsapp ASGTG channel.
