AH Frantically Calling Sellers / All FBA Qty Being Stranded / ELVIS ROSENBERG Plan?
1️⃣ Here is a video update on the HOAX suspensions , but overall SP was in a much chirpier mood this week on multiple fronts including reinstating accounts suspended for being related to deceased sellers. The tension did not bust but it looks like its about to as a few rough ones were reinstated without the false root account being reinstated. AH has acting frantic constantly calling back suspended sellers trying to get SP to reinstate. None of the larger accounts with 14-day warnings have been suspended yet even though the 14 days passed.
2️⃣ FBA Sellers are having all qty of skus being stranded in situations where they are moving some qty to a FC that is not yet fully operational; New on dashboard “suspected product authenticity issue “.
3️⃣Supply Chain Financing is a great solution when you cannot secure a bank loan. There’s No inter-creditor agreement, No personal guarantee. You Submit your supplier’s invoice to be paid. Then the lender will pay your suppliers 100% of the invoice. Free up cash you need without taking on any more debt.

4️⃣ New language for stranded inventory: “Hello from Amazon Selling Partner Support, We’re sorry to know that your ASIN: XXXXXXXX is inactive(out of stock). We will check and help you to get this issue sorted. We have investigated your ASIN : XXXXXXXX and based on our research we can see that, your units are stored in FC : ELP1. Please be informed that ELP1 is a new building and no outbound is performed yet. In this case, we would request you to wait for 7-14 days for the FC to perform outbound and begin shipping for the customers. The first ship date is XX/XX/2022. The units are inactive and in stranded because of this reason.”
5️⃣ SP seems to be accepting appeals that explain that the account has been transferred, when a valid Transfer of Ownership agreement is submitted together with an appeal. If you have this – if they are relating you to an account that you purchased off someone else, you are in for some luck and can appeal it.
6️⃣ I had a fascinating conversation with Maryam Zaffar on the explosive growth of the Pakistani seller’s community and ASGTG management; We are considering a non-conventional ELVIS ROSENBERG strategy to combat rampant abusive buyers. To vote on this and understand what this is see this.
7️⃣ When you file a DMCA counternotice on a copyright complaint, it is taking much longer than the anticipated 10 days to reinstate and can take as long as 30 days.
8️⃣ Amazon announced “We’re also excited to share that effective January 1, 2022, we’ll reduce the Inventory Performance Index (IPI) threshold for FBA storage limits to 400. With this IPI change, less than 10% of sellers will have storage volume limits.”
9️⃣ “As part of our ongoing efforts to provide the best possible customer experience, we have implemented additional restrictions for products on which you have listed.” With no brands or ASINS listed.
