Did Amazon Suspend Your Seller Account too?

Let’s walk you through what you can do to restore access to get your business live again.

With profits exploding every year until now, 2022 has also been an incredible year in terms of Amazon sales. For Amazon sellers, the opportunity is a dream come true when you do it well -but only until you do it well. Once a mistake is done and under their radar, it’s a whole different story afterwards. 


As the number of seller registrations increase on the E-retail giant, their policy changes become more and more swift to a point that a lot of sellers struggle to keep up.

Even when you play all fair and nice, there are still a number of external factors that can leave your business in the pit. Take for example a competitor reporting false complaints on your account or an angry customer unfairly deciding to make you a punching bag on a bad day or maybe a mistake from your supplier’s end that you didn’t know about.

The list is long but unfortunately it isn’t necessarily the one that Amazon’s buyer-centric seller performance monitoring system cares about for the most part.

The result?

Thousands of sellers are being hit with dreaded Amazon Account suspensions. And chances are, if you’re reading this blog here, you’re either looking to find a way out of this rut or are smart enough to prepare before-hand for prevention of a rainy day.

So let’s walk you through what you can do to restore access to get your business live again.

If you do it properly, chances are that Amazon will give you a chance again

After all, we all learn from mistakes right?

Suspended, Banned or Rejected - What's the difference




Once it’s done next comes figuring out the root cause of your suspension.


Why has Amazon removed your selling privileges?

After finding out the what, you now need to find the why behind your suspension. Head straight to check your Performance Notifications under Seller Account first.

Read the email carefully; it usually contains information you must watch out for. 

A few common reasons for suspension are:

You should also check for any policy warnings or performance dips that need fixing. Open up your seller information from the "Customer Metrics" section of your Amazon seller account. See if there are any common customer complaints or there is something wrong with your listings.   

The key is to put your finger on the pulse of the problem.

Appeal against your suspension - Perfect Plan Of Action

This is where you start communicating with Amazon to actively resolve your issue. Be thorough and precise about the steps you are going to take (or have taken already- it’s preferable) to rectify the problem. 

Depending on your case, your plan of action should start by indicating the suspension's cause(s) in your appeal.

Here are a few pointers to remember:

1.    Do accept responsibility and express regret for the harm caused to the user.

2.   Let Amazon know that you are dedicated to providing fantastic customer service and recognize that it is an honor to sell on their website.

3.    Never criticize Amazon's method for determining product quality.

Remember that Amazon has its own list of what’s valid and what’s not (even though you may disagree at times) so labeling a suspension unfair won't help your reinstatement strategy either.

You should focus on identifying the mistake's root cause and finding a reasonable solution. If several issues led to the deactivation, each case must be dealt with separately. 

Make sure your POA has the following elements to increase the chance of your appeal getting accepted by Amazon                     


Key Takeaway:

Being the e-commerce industry leader, Amazon works to create and uphold a specific standard for the marketplaces. And the bar is set relatively high so there can be a lot of potential reasons leading to suspension. Once suspended, the stress becomes nerve-wrecking for most sellers and the reinstatement process seems to take forever to get right.
