Today at Got Suspended, we are going to talk about a topic that is not directly connected to Amazon account suspensions, and which somehow is very important to know for the sake of your account. In the last years, thousands of sellers have noticed that there is something wrong with their reviews, the review system in general, and the reviewers themselves. What is happening with Amazon, and how is it ever connected to Amazon account suspensions? Our Amazon appeal service will make sure you know each small detail of selling on Amazon and every suspension risk.
We’re not Columbus, and we’re not discovering America! So, let’s be honest, we all know that Amazon controls not only its sellers, but also their accounts and reviews. For this reason, Amazon has some techniques of working with sellers’ reviews, such as deleting, blocking, or limiting them. It sounds strange, because Amazon knows how important it is for its customers to write and observe reviews, so why should it block, limit, or delete your reviews itself?
When Amazon blocks your reviews, your listings lose their ability to welcome customers with their reviews. Even though your customers are willing to leave an opinion on their purchase, Amazon’s blocking steps won’t let them do it. Usually sellers find out about this when customers are contact sellers themselves.
Amazon has many options, because it is Amazon. For this reason, the online titan can limit the number of reviews per day, in order to make sure your reviews are verifiable, and trustworthy. Usually, the number of reviews is 3-5 reviews per day, so pay attention to your reviews, and detect the problem earlier, before the problem finds you!
If you have noticed that you have been the victim of Amazon’s tricks, the picture of skull and crossbones should immediately appear in front of your eyes. This most likely means that Amazon has noticed something fishy and irregular in your business operation. It means that the next step will be suspending your account.
- For example, Amazon’s software may detect reviews with strange and skeptical words and phrases, which mostly occur when a seller is using a review generator.
- Another option is that your listings are full of unverified reviews. According to Amazon “an “Amazon Verified Purchase” review means we’ve verified that the person writing the review, purchased the product at Amazon and didn’t receive the product at a deep discount.” So, if Amazon hasn’t verified it, you are automatically becoming a suspicious seller trying to game Amazon’s rules.
- Your sales can jump onto a completely new level, which can again be suspicious for Amazon. Yes, selling on Amazon is hard due to its numerous wants and needs.
- It is possible that the account which left a review under your listings has been suspended or erased from Amazon, which is the reason for this strange tendency.
Now you know that by deleting, blocking or limiting your reviews, Amazon is warning you, even though you have never done anything black-hat or scammish. Even though it can be unfair and unreasonable, it is you who is working on Amazon, and not the opposite. So, be careful and pay attention to your reviews, and when you detect an issue, make sure you take all the measures to help you and your account get back on track. And don’t forget, our Amazon reinstatement service is here to help you out every step of the way!
