Creating a seller account on Amazon is the easiest part of your journey, and you’ll understand that after having numerous orders that need to be fulfilled at the same time. But here’s the bad news: you’ll also realize how hard it is to sell on Amazon after earning a living, and then, all of a sudden, getting suspended. This is when you lose not only your temper and patience, but also the funds that are held on your Amazon seller account.
That’s the worst thing that can happen on Amazon, especially when you have a huge amount of money on your account. Of course, there are those who are lucky enough to have little money on the account, but what if you really have something to lose? What are you going to do? Will you ever get your money back? Will you get your funds if Amazon rejects your appeal letter? It’s quite common for sellers to be in a quandary, because losing an account will cost them a pretty penny!
There are two possible outcomes:
- In the first case, you just investigate your account, dive deeper, find the reason for your suspension and draft your first appeal. After the first, second or third attempt, you get your account back. In Amazon’s dictionary, reinstatement means regaining Amazon’s trust, so once you’re back on board, you will get all your funds back. Amazon won’t take it form you! If you want to kill two birds with one stone, and get your money back together with your account, it’s the best outcome you can hope for. But what if Amazon rejects your appeal?
- Yes, sadly Amazon can send your appeal back and ask for more information. This will happen after all your attempts: if Amazon decides not to reinstate you, it will never break its promise. So, you can still send information that Amazon needs and not get reinstated! Basically, Amazon calls it quits, and you just can’t play the reinstatement game, even if you want to. This time, it’s more difficult to get your money back, because Amazon is not so responsible when it comes to its sellers.
In general, funds will be released only when Amazon permanently rejects your appeals and blocks you. If it already happened to you, ideally, you will see your money again after 60 to 90 days. But again, Amazon always gives the cold shoulder to its sellers, so you will get your money back when Amazon wants you to get it back. It can be 60 days, or even longer! Just be patient, and don’t overload Amazon with impolite and resentful letters; it just won’t work!
Yes, its’ really unfair to take your money and suspend your account at the same time, but still, you have to cope with that. But don’t just sit and wait, or what’s even worse, give up! Create an appeal letter, send it to Amazon and fight: fight for your account, and for the money you have honestly earned!
