Suits Embrace AI / 15+year Seller Horror Suspension / ASGTG Rebranding
1️⃣ Funds that were held for the strange VAT issue were released for many EU accounts. Some are still frozen; If you Drop Ship and you’re not the seller of record, even with zero complaints from anyone, Amazon can freeze your funds and suspend you for COC violation. They view this as fraud; The Suits were in a better mood this week, chatting up AI and how Amazon is embracing it “with a regulatory approach that allows AI innovation to thrive.”
2️⃣ This long-term, highly compliant seller with 11 employees was suspended for a legal-related account that was suspended for a very minor issue—please help surface .

4️⃣ “We removed some of your listings because you did not provide us with valid Serial number barcodes when shipping seller fulfilled inventory. The listings we removed are at the bottom of this message.
