AH New Rating System / FBA Brand Restricted / GTIN Codes Not Matching
1️⃣ I wish all those who celebrate Rosh Hashanah a year of health and happiness; ASGTG event on Jan 10-11 is in full gear & I hope for a great showing as last year; AH released the new rating system and initial feedback is excellent; I had a great conversation with a seller highly impacted on the potential high price error causing items to be unlisted.
2️⃣ Some sellers are getting brand-restricted messages when sending to FBA even though they can list the item in inventory. No clear path to correct yet.

4️⃣ “My name is XXXXX. I am a member of the Amazon.com Executive Selling Partner Relations Team, and will serve as your point of contact as we work through resolution of your case. Jeff Bezos received your email and requested that I research this issue and respond on his behalf. It is my understanding you recently launched in the brand “XXXXXX”, and noticed that 2,0000 out of 10,000 of barcodes (UPCs) you purchased via GS1 were already used by a third party seller in Amazon to offer different product types than you expected, upon review of the screenshots shared, I noticed the items show to be associated to clothing/apparel products. I understand this is alarming considering Amazon systems do not match the information of the UPCs as XXXX products; as a result you are facing issues to add XXXXX products in your Vendor Central UK account.”
5️⃣ On fix your products, many sellers with bundles are getting an error “This ASIN has GTIN codes that do not match the brand associated with the ASIN”. Under “at risk listings”
6️⃣ Shipping container prices are way down. Container group is quite useful.
7️⃣ Some of the suits emails were bouncing back, but the issue has been resolved and they have been surprisingly reasonable this week.
8️⃣ email@example.com. New team?; SP is giving time frames for when an ASIN will be fully reinstated “It will be active within 8 business hours.”
9️⃣ Sellers reported branded items moving to stranded inventory earlier this week due to no brand access issues. It has been mostly resolved.
🔟 For some reason, some ASINS from 3M double tape are active inside the category of office supplies, but restricted/blocked inside the industrial category.
