If you’ve been a seller or buyer at Amazon, you’ll realize that there’re so many benefits associated with this popular marketplace.
Even then, there may be a few incidences here and there that may be frustrating especially for sellers who have an account with the site. And just like most of the other sites, one of the worst experiences you may encounter is when you discover that your account has been suspended or even worse banned for whatever reasons. But what are the reasons that can lead to this suspension? You may ask. Here are some of them.
- Failure to pay Amazon seller fees.
One of the most common and obvious reasons for suspension of an account is failure to pay seller fees. Fee avoidance, by any means possible, is a sure way to have your account suspended. In anyway, how will the site earn if you don’t pay them?
- Being a non-performing seller.
Another major reason for a sure suspension from this marketplace, and which can also be considered a “criminal fraud” is when you’re termed as a non-performer’. This can be when you mispresent an item(s) by failure to meet the terms and the item descriptions in the listing or even failure to deliver items after having been paid.
- Low feedback score.
Just like most of the other sites, Amazon has a feedback system that allows buyers and sellers to rate each other according to the way transactions have been carried out. This is particularly important to the seller since to have a negative or low feedback score may earn you a suspension sooner than later. So to protect yourself, ensure as much as possible that your dealings with buyers are top-notch.
- Selling illegal goods and any other suspicious activity.
Another very common cause of suspension is selling of counterfeit items and those considered illegal according to the Amazon policies. In some incidences, you may receive a warning and even be suspended for three days. This and any other kind of fraud such as soliciting of off-site sales would definitely lead to a suspension.
- Underage persons.
If you open an account with Amazon and it turns out that you’re below the age of 18 years, you’re certain to receive an everlasting suspension. Amazon only allows persons of 18 years and above.
Additionally, other reasons that may lead to a sure account suspension include but not limited to the following violations; having multiple accounts that you’re operating with the same email address: involvement in too many complaints; scamming buyers; poor communication while in the site; using profane language in your communication/transactions; making threats to other users; stealing of photos belonging to other users and other major to minor violations.
These and more can lead to a pleasant and an amazing experience at Amazon if well adhered to. Therefore, be proactive in following them and you’ll stay longer in this wonderful and very reliable site.
