7 Tips to Navigate Account Suspension on Amazon

With a mission to provide the best customer experience for its shoppers, Amazon instills a stern set of rules and policies for its sellers to adhere to. In order to create a frictionless customer experience, you are expected to abide by Amazon’s regulations or otherwise risk account suspension.

Given the current climate around the global pandemic, Amazon in recent weeks has suspended nearly 4,000 seller accounts for violating its strict policies around price gouging, and it has removed “millions” of listings over other violations related to COVID-19, such as making false health claims. 

According to Feedvisor’s 2019 report, The State of the Amazon Marketplace, over one-third (36%) of Amazon sellers cite account suspension as their top concern with operating on the platform. Is your account at risk? 

In order to help you confidently and effectively manage and prevent account suspension, our Amazon experts have compiled seven proven steps you can take to pinpoint the cause of the suspension and execute a strategy for rapid reinstatement.
