Amazon is a merciless world where sellers are ready to rip and throw in order to attract the attention of more customers. However, during this process, sellers make crucial mistakes that may become reasons for different issues such as Amazon suspensions. One of the most common problems that you can face when you are selling on Amazon is selling unauthorized brands’ products through your seller account. That’s because it may become a reason for both an inauthentic and an Intellectual property issue.
Today, Got Suspended Clients are going to tell you the main points concerning Unauthorized Brands’ products that may become reasons for serious issues within your operation on Amazon.
As an Amazon seller, you should be aware of the fact that Amazon has a list of brands that are restricted for selling through its platform, and it is continuing to add more and more new brands to this list. Additionally, most brands are very strict when it comes to their intellectual property rights violations.
Therefore, if you want to avoid issues such as an inauthentic or an intellectual property claims, you should go through the approval process first.
Let’s say you are an Amazon seller and want to start selling a certain brand’s products through your account and want everything to go by the book in your business.
First of all, you should reach out to the brand and ask them to become authorized distributors. You can both message or call them; however, we strictly recommend that you call them, since it is the best way for creating valid relationships with your future suppliers.
Once you manage to persuade them to work with you, your next step should be getting their letter of authorizations and invoices proving the authenticity of their goods.
Now that you are considered to be an authorized seller, you can confidentially start selling these goods on Amazon without being afraid of getting suspended.
Suspensions You Can Get!
Generally, there are two main types of suspensions that you can meet when you are selling other brands’ products without getting proper authorization:
- Inauthentic Suspension
- Intellectual Property Suspension (IP)
This type of Amazon suspension is considered to be one of the most common ones, since there are lots of people who get suspended for this reason every day. Keep in mind, even if you sell 100% authentic goods, Amazon can still suspend your account for an inauthenticity violation. As a rule, you have to provide Amazon with letters of authorization and invoices in order to prove that you are an authorized seller. In case you fail with this process, your account will remain under Amazon’s review until you start working with authorized brands.

Intellectual Property (IP)Complaints!
Intellectual Property complaints are considered to be one of the hardest types of Amazon suspensions that sellers can face during their operation. The main reason is that when you deal with an Intellectual Property complaint, you have to work both with Amazon and the complainant party at the same time. First of all, you should reach out to the brand and persuade them to withdraw their complaint. Keep in mind that this process requires much effort on your part, since most brands do not agree to make advances in this process. You can read more about this type of suspension in this blog.
