Amazon Seller Breaking News: VORYS LETTERS, RETAIL & ONLINE ARBITRAGE, AMAZON ASKING SUSPENDED SELLERS FOR FUTURE INVOICES, ARBITRATION AGAINST AMAZON, FALSE COUNTERFEIT COMPLAINTS
STORY #1: VORYS LETTERS
If you have been selling branded goods that you don’t own, chances are, you might have received a threatening letter from VORYS. There is a significant increase in letters that VORYS is sending out as their firm seems to have taken on a new client, GNC products. Therefore, if you are selling GNC products on Amazon, there is a high chance of you receiving a VORYS letter. If you have received this letter, you have no legal obligation to respond to it. However, if you choose to respond to VORYS, we advise that you please get some guidance, which you can get from calling us as we do FREE CONSULTATIONS 7 days a week.
STORY #2: LARGE RETAIL & ONLINE ARBITRAGE SELLERS
Large retail arbitrage and online arbitrage sellers are suffering account and listing suspensions. Most RA and OA sellers who are having problems are generally the smaller sellers but we have seen an increase in larger sellers having problems as well. If you are doing online arbitrage or retail arbitrage, be on the lookout and make sure you have really good documentation in advance of where you sourced your product. And if you can, trace these products all the way back to your source or distributor so if a problem does come up, you can respond as quickly as possible.
STORY #3: AMAZON ASKING SELLERS FOR FUTURE INVOICES
If you are a suspended seller and have a problem with your sourcing, invoices or retail receipts, you may want to consider getting invoices for future purchases as a persuasive tool. This would let Amazon know that you are changing the way you source your products and showing examples of it.
STORY #4: ARBITRATION AGAINST AMAZON
As an Amazon seller, you have significant legal rights. If Amazon refuses to release your inventory or money, you have every right to take Amazon to binding arbitration in front of the American Arbitration Association.
STORY #5: FALSE COUNTERFEIT COMPLAINTS
If you have received a false counterfeit complaint from a brand, and you are selling 100% genuine products, you may be entitled to recover money & significant damages against the brand for making a bogus complaint.
