Amazon Sellers’ News 1/23/20 with CJ Rosenbaum: Not as Described suspensions, KDP suspensions, VORYS baseless claims against third-party sellers
Listing suspensions are up for products that are not as described. Whatever you are delivering to Amazon’s consumers, you better make sure that what is arriving on the doorstep is exactly as is described in that listing. These types of suspensions are up now.
Kendall, KDP suspensions; if you’re a writer, it is virtually impossible to succeed today without publishing on Kindle. They have such a vast majority, over 90% of the ebook market. We have started to receive calls from Kindle publishers who are using images owned by other companies on their books and getting suspended. Be super careful. Also, we’ve represented about a dozen different authors around the country taking Amazon to arbitration. We know a ton about the keyword manipulation. We know how they monitor your sales on limited versus a-la-cart and we can help you do very, very well. Give us a call if you’re a Kindle author 1-877-9-SELLER.
Vorys once again sending out tons of baseless claims against third-party sellers. If you are delivering genuine products and you receive a letter from the Vorys law firm, we need to hear from you. The vast majority of their claims are absolute nonsense, but from time to time, some of their claims have merit and you need to know the difference.
Private label sellers receiving counterfeit complaints, which is absolutely 100% ridiculous. If you’re a private label seller, you own the brand. You’re certainly not selling counterfeit of your own product. But we’ve seen a rise of these baseless counterfeit complaints asserted against private label sellers often by people in companies that have Amazon vendor accounts.
