Amazon Dropshipping Policy Violation Appeal

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You need to find out why your seller account was suspended. It could be due to a dropshipping policy violator. Account suspensions can also be hidden reasons (a customer complained about non-Amazon packaging). You should investigate the source of the suspension if you are not authenticated. Amazon will send you an email to let you know if your account suspension has been caused by a performance issue, or a violation of the Amazon Selling Policy and Agreements.

Determine! Identify the reason why your seller account was suspended.
