Misuse of ratings / Face mask warning /new requirements for formula – milk.
1) Some sellers received a warning regarding “Misuse of Ratings, Feedback or Reviews”, “Misuse of Sales Rank”, “Misuse of Search and Browse.” If you did none of this, check if someone is placing high qty orders for your items and then canceling. If yes, email SP and show them you’re being unfairly accused.
2) Please make sure any face masks you sell are up to code, legal to sell and not expired as SP will be watching very carefully. “this product has been identified as a face mask that makes unapproved medical marketing claims. Products that make medical marketing claims may not be legally marketed in the U.S. without prior review and approval by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).”
3) Please make sure to do an accurate reconciliation for fee reimbursements. Now is a good time to reconcile the last two seasons (18 months back), and the last season for fees overcharges (including the higher storage fees charged at that time) as they are limited to a 90 days claim period. We have quite an accurate and detailed process for inventory and fee reconciliation with ultra-clean cases (constantly adjusting to Amazon’s changes) see details. (Sponsored)
