4️⃣ This is happening when there is an occasional A2Z claim and Amazon reimburses you. “Why is this happening? This is happening because we value your partnership. Specifically, you have a strong track record of delivering products on time, in the condition described, and making it right for customers if something goes wrong. Your hard work and customer obsession have not gone unnoticed…“
5️⃣ There is a big Seen an uptick in “Not as Described” violations on AH dashboard; I started location based TG groups as some issues are not marketplace / topic specific but location based.
6️⃣ I wrote an article on the need for SP to reimagine the way it handles suspected related accounts as there are many issues right now ; Amazon AH is calling sellers when popular ASINs go down or about to get delisted.
7️⃣ There are also rumors that they will raise the 7$ cap for Small & Light to compensate for rising costs.
“Effective October 29, 2021, we have made two changes to FBA Small and Light:
– To make it easier for your products to qualify for the program, we no longer require a minimum sales velocity for your ASINs.
– We no longer require a minimum number of units per ASIN for each shipment to fulfillment centers.”
8️⃣ “Amazon has received complaints that items you sold may be in violation of U.S. law. As a result, you may no longer sell on Amazon.com, and your listings have been removed from our site. Why did this happen? Sellers on Amazon.com are not allowed to list items violating US Law.”
🔟 “This product has been identified as ammunition or a component of ammunition , including ammunition and ammunition components for rifles, assault weapons, pistols, handguns, shotguns, and muzzleloaders.”
