NEWS TODAY: Why Sellers Should STOP Using Amazon’s Build International Listings Tool
Breaking news Amazon sellers. Once again, an Amazon tool is causing you problems. So as of now, stop using Amazon’s build international listings tool until it’s tested further.
So I’m really happy to report a victory for this particular Amazon seller. What you need to know is that Amazon’s tools don’t always work very well. I know that seems absolutely outrageous that Amazon builds tools, gives them to you to use, and from time to time, they cause listing & account deactivations.
That’s exactly what happened for this particular Amazon seller. I want to share the information with you so that you don’t fall into the same problem because you’re watching these videos. You’ll learn from other sellers’ mistakes so you can thrive.
This AMZ seller is selling in various countries and he uses Amazon’s build international listings tool to sell products, Amazon Brazil. He was selling gun accessories, some knives, and some other defensive products for people to use.
The account gets shut down because the products that he was selling in Brazil violated local laws and Amazon’s policies as they exist in Brazil. At first, the Amazon seller wrote his own plan of action and sent it to Amazon and it failed. He was still out of business.
When he reached out to us after seeing one of these videos, he went to our website, and clicked our case submit button. He then got a call back from one of our client relations team members. When we looked at all the factors, we realized that we can win this case and we offered to help this particular Amazon seller.
When we offer to help one of you, our process is to send you an email. The email has two outbound links, one our retainer agreement, which specifically says exactly what we’re going to do for you. And the other link is to pay our flat fee for helping you get your account reactivated or your listing reactivated. This particular flat fee was $3,500. And that generally applies to most problems that Amazon sellers face.
So what did we do? First, we looked at the previous plan of action that the seller submitted to ensure that nothing we wrote contradicted what Amazon had already sent. Then we followed a tried and true process, a process that works by writing a new plan of action with a root cause section, an immediate corrective action section, and a long-term change to the business section in the plan of action.
So we wrote to Amazon and described specifically what the product was, described specifically the use of Amazon’s tool. When we wrote the plan of action, when our awesome team wrote a persuasive yet also concise plan of action, had the seller submit it to a particular email address, our first plan of action won the reactivation of this seller’s account.
So here’s what you need to know: be careful of Amazon’s tools. Also, be careful if you call Amazon staff on the phone, you cannot always trust their advice. If you are going to write your own plan of action, make sure you download our book on how to do it and follow our format. If Amazon sales are important to you, if your income is important to you, if you have payroll to meet and your skillset is being an Amazon seller, hire the best in the world to write your plan of action. And that means hiring my team!
