2) Amazon Renewed 15-day penalty box. “Dear Seller, Your Amazon renewed selling privileges have been deactivated for a minimum 15-day period. Your listings have been removed. Please ship any open orders to avoid further impact on your account. Why is this happening? We’ve observed that a number of the items you have delivered to Amazon Renewed customers have not met the Average Product Rating (APR) >3.70 quality requirement on the Amazon Renewed store, which is leading to poor customer experiences and feedback. As a result, we are suspending your Renewed selling privileges. We are taking the minimum 15-day suspension period due to having multiple suspensions from not meeting the Renewed quality performance standards.”
