5 Factors to Have on Invoices BEFORE Sending to Amazon
Amazon sellers all over the world get hit with suspensions of their entire accounts and/or specific ASINs.
If you receive an Amazon suspension, you need to create a concise and persuasive Plan of Action and you also need to submit your invoices.
Here are 5 factors you need to look at BEFORE sending invoices to Amazon:
1. Quantity of Units: If you’re sending in an invoice to Amazon from an inauthentic suspension, don’t redact the quantity of units, but make sure the quantity of the units makes sense. The numbers don’t have to match exactly, and they really shouldn’t match exactly, but they certainly need to make sense.
2. Unit Price: Do not redact the price units. Amazon will hold that against you to some extent. The price per unit should also make sense. It should be somewhere around wholesale market prices.
3. Date of Order: When you place an order from a supplier, the date also has to make sense compared to when the product was sold, and more importantly, when you shipped it to FBA.
4. Order Delivery Date: When was the order delivered? When did you receive that inventory?
5. Address: The invoice should show the address where the products were delivered. We like to see the addresses match everything that’s on the Amazon account. If there’s something on your account that’s an email, that email should be the same as your Amazon account, the name of the account should be the purchaser.
Amazon wants to see consistency. They want all the information not only to match, but to also make sense.
The purpose of every single POA and appeal we write for Amazon sellers is purely to persuade Amazon to reinstate your account.
