Risks Involved When Taking Amazon to Arbitration – WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW AS AN AMZ SELLER
Okay, so Amazon has refused to release your money, they’re refusing to give you your inventory back or pay for it, and now you have to decide, “Should I take Amazon to arbitration & take the decision out of Amazon’s hands & get my $$$ from Amazon?”
What I want to talk to you about today are the risks involved if you go to arbitration.
When you take Amazon to arbitration, you’re taking your case out of seller performance, out of seller support, out of the Bezos team, and you’re putting it in the hands of their outside council, who are working with very high end paralegals and executives over at Amazon.
Why am I telling you this is a risk? It’s a risk because if you have more than one Amazon account, if you have partners who are running other Amazon accounts, if you are doing anything to manipulate the platform, Amazon is likely to find it when you take them to arbitration.
So you have to make a decision..
Number one, evaluate how many accounts you’re running or are involved in and what you’re doing in each of those accounts.
Number two, if it’s worth the risk of Amazon finding those other accounts and relating them to you, where everything could get shut down, and is it worth the risk?
A lot of Amazon sellers decide to let Amazon keep money and inventory because they don’t want to put their other accounts at risk, or they don’t want to risk Amazon finding out how they’re manipulating the rankings, how they’re getting reviews, where they’re getting their inventory from.
So the risk of arbitration is that Amazon will find out things that you don’t want Amazon to know and shut down your other business interests.
