How to Recover Your Money & Inventory from Amazon FBA
As an Amazon Seller, you may have experienced problems with Amazon taking your money and inventory without giving you a reason.
You may feel that you have no recourse, but you do!
You can demand arbitration from Amazon to recover what is rightfully yours.
In this video, we will discuss the steps necessary to make this demand and what to expect from the arbitration process.
When Amazon sellers become involved in a dispute with Amazon where they believe that they are not credited for inventory sent to FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) or Amazon won’t release your money, there are steps you can take to recover the damages.
Demand for Arbitration
When Amazon refuses to release your money or does not give you credit for inventory that you supplied, it is important that you file a demand for arbitration. A demand for arbitration can be drafted as a letter which is sent to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) to file for arbitration against Amazon because the Amazon seller has lost money as a result of lost or uncredited inventory. The document should detail what you have done in the situation, how Amazon has reacted, and why you are undeniably entitled to compensation.
What is arbitration?
Amazon sellers are able to recover damages from Amazon through the process of arbitration, as seller contracts contain restrictions on pursuing lawsuits against the e-commerce platform. During arbitration, Amazon and the seller will compromise on an unbiased, third-party judge who will come to a decision based on evidence. This process is less expensive than typical court proceedings and usually involves a much shorter timeline.
