Amazon counterfeit complaints when putting generic products on branded listings.
Jacques, paralegal at Rosenbaum Famularo, PC, the law firm behind Amazon Sellers Lawyer, talks to you about selling generic products on a brand name listing.
Sellers should check the listing they are thinking of hopping on. If a seller is putting generic items on a branded listing, that seller will probably get hit with a counterfeit complaint because they are causing customer confusion. The best thing sellers should do is remove themselves from the branded one and jump on a normal, generic listing that matches their product.
Suspension Increase: generic products sold on Amazon’s branded listings.
We are seeing many sellers sourcing and buying items on Alibaba that are generic and then selling them on listings that have brands on them. Even though it’s a very similar product, we are seeing a rise in Amazon suspending sellers because they are selling a generic item on a branded page. If you are doing this, you are putting yourself at risk of a listing suspension and quite possibly a full account suspension.
