SP Misbehaving Less? / ASGTG Verified Seller Group / Bad Actors Reviews Removed
1️⃣ Suits were in a surprisingly decent mood this week, reinstating a few unfair suspensions. Here is a seemingly misguided suspension that is still not resolved: The petition from last week. I forgot the link. There has not been much progress on the “unsuitable” concern, and Amazon has been stubborn about handling this. I started a verified Sellers Whats App Group. ASGTG Jan 10th preparation in full gear.

4️⃣ From a concerned ASGTG member: “I am getting this” “Please submit additional information such as an image to support your dispute request and allow us to help resolve the issue.” Supposedly they are also testing out something called “Secure Receive Process” that will require 3PLs to start incorporating tamper-proof tape and cameras as a way to validate shipment contents.”
5️⃣ “We were not able to verify the supplier information listed on the invoice that you have provided. Make sure that all supplier information is accurate and up to date, and that you only source from reliable suppliers.”
6️⃣ New! “This is to notify you that Amazon has taken an action to remove from your listings product reviews that were associated with buyers who have violated Amazon’s policies. To offer better protection for your business, Amazon has launched an automated process to suppress product reviews associated with such buyers.”
7️⃣ The AH rating seems off on some accounts. Accounts with multiple IP complaints show a high score and health and then get a warning or suspended. Please deal with the issues as they come in.
8️⃣ SP sent this puzzling notification to a few sellers without further explanation.
-Providing inaccurate information to Amazon or our customers.
-Not Acting fairly or misusing Amazon features or services.
9️⃣ This seller has the same EXACT incorrect reviews for multiple items.
🔟 Anecdotally some sellers are saying that sales are extremely slow these days.
