Seller Loses $50,000 in 3 Days as Amazon Takes Down Bestseller Item
We talked with an Amazon seller. Let’s call the seller Kimmy Erik, or KE for short.Amazon took this seller’s best-selling product down because someone claimed they had an allergic reaction—it could as well have been a competitor or just any frivolous tire-kicker.In only three days, Amazon’s action hit KE’s business hard enough to bleed losses of about $50,000.Amazon can feel like a maze of rules filled with government and internally imposed regulatory bottlenecks. And it’s choking businesses hard.Sometimes, those rules are anything but clear to the seller. Heck, those rules are not even effective in helping the seller or Amazon, for that matter.Stick around, and you’ll find out why KE lost five figures in three days, how Amazon is enabling a toxic seller environment, and how you can respond before it hits your business.
