Amazon account suspension is like a bone stuck in one’s throat especially when it comes to sellers. Most of the times, sellers are very well aware of the reasons leading to the deferral of their Amazon account. Sellers always get a warning notification prior to their Amazon account suspension. This makes it pretty obvious that the sellers get to know about what they are doing wrong.
However, other than the sellers’ follies, some rarely known reasons can also cause an Amazon suspension within no time. Having an awareness of all Amazon’s laws can save you from an Amazon account suspension easily. Nevertheless, having education of the following lesser talked-about reasons is also necessary to guard your Amazon account.
Unfortunately, the sellers cannot avoid some of these reasons that get their Amazon account suspended all of a sudden. Despite this, knowing them is important so that you can report the suspension in time and get your account reinstated.
1- Selling Gated And Restricted Products
The Global market is growing rapidly in the modern day world. Along with this growth comes an enormous lot of prohibited products in the market. Amazon management makes sure that no such controversial product is sold through their channel. Therefore, they keep on adding more and more products to their gated and restricted lists. Mostly, the sellers don’t bother checking those lists containing the products they cannot sell. Therefore, they offer those products on Amazon which gets their Amazon account suspended. As a seller, make sure going through the restricted lists every now and then to save yourself from unnecessary annoyance.
2- Playing Trickeries With Reviews
This is the reason that has caused many accounts to undergo Amazon suspension in the last two years. Amazon never allows cheating them when it comes to reviews. In order to get positive reviews, sellers often try some indirect methods of which Amazon gets to know easily. Make sure not to ever ask for a review from the buyers. If your product is actually worth buying, good reviews will automatically come running to you without you asking for them.
3- Attack By Hackers
Sometimes, you get your Amazon account suspended neither due to your deliberate dishonesty nor because of your carelessness or ignorance. It is only that sometimes the wind is blowing against your way and brings an Amazon suspension to you. The very cause of this is those hackers who are always attempting to make your account’s repute lesser. Hackers can play trick with your account to get your selling privileges banished or delaying the shipments. Situations like these bring the sellers to an island of confusion where they don’t even know how to react. Make sure you react to this calmly and keep your temper while explaining it to the Amazon management. They really didn’t do anything and taking your frustration out on them won’t be making things any better.
