Rise in Review Manipulation Suspensions for Amazon Sellers
Review manipulation suspensions on Amazon: what you need to know.
1: they are rising.
It’s not a dramatic rise, but we are seeing more and more sellers contacting us that their accounts are down because they’ve been accused of review manipulation.
2: how to get your accounts back if you have this.
First, download our book, The Amazon Seller’s Guide to Suspensions and Reinstatements.
Second, when it comes specifically to review manipulation, you have to know right off the bat that these are very hard cases to win, and the first plan of action that you submit is the one that’s the most important. Make sure, if you’re doing it yourself, you doing a really, really great job at that first swing at the plate or hire us because we are the best in the world, which leads me to number three.
Third, Vin, one of our killer senior paralegals, won a review manipulation reinstatement, full on, by throwing the vendor that this seller was using right under the bus. Now, I’m not telling you to do that in every case and I’m not telling you to do it at your first swing at the plate, because, under your terms of service, you are 100% responsible for anything, everything, and anyone interacting your Amazon account. If you do an admission, if you write an admission and a plan of action and throw the vendor under the bus, you are responsible for that and you are now at Amazon’s mercy. Vin won it, he’s a remarkable paralegal, but you may not be so fortunate. That’s the third thing. You can win these cases from time to time by throwing your vendor under the bus.
