Arrow 2017 Amazon Credit Card Issues

It seems a number of people are having trouble with their amazon accounts and reporting issues such as

Hello,

We removed your listings because your credit card information may no longer valid. You are currently unable to sell on Amazon.

Sellers on Amazon.com are not allowed to list items without a valid credit card on file.

To sell on Amazon.com, please update your credit card informations. You will be redirected to the credit card update page the next time you sign into your account.
Once you have updated your credit card information, please send a confirmation to seller performance team.


This is occurring on US Amazon Pro accounts.

The reason you are getting this suspension or issue with your account is because Amazon is attempting to charge you Amazon Pro fees which are $39.99. A couple months ago, US Amazon Pro waived the first month in fees which allowed you to sell products and use your Amazon available balance to cover the fees. As of today, US Amazon pro accounts now require the first month of fees, which is $39.99 upon registration. After you pay the first month of fees from CC, make sure you have an available balance on Amazon by the following month, to cover the monthly fees in the future from your Amazon balance. Once you have updated your credit card information with a card that has the correct balance, simply appeal the suspension or email support.

Keep in mind every time you make any kind of billing change, like adding a bank account, or receiving a disbursement from amazon, you will be charged $1-2 for the US accounts and 1-2 for the UK accounts. These charges go back to your card within a few business days and they are only test charges.

Here is a breakdown of the minimum amount you need on your credit cards for registration among different Amazon seller accounts:

US Amazon Individual Account - $5 VCC

US Amazon Pro Seller Account - $44 VCC

UK Amazon Seller Account - 10

The VCC you use on the account depends on the type of account you are trying to create.

Do you have a VCC which has $44 ?
I can't arrange a real CC for making new accounts.

As soon as you convert any account to a US Amazon Pro account, they will bill you the first month fees of $39.99

Dear,
I am asking that can I make Pro Seller Account on amazon.ca ( Using your VCC ) And latter I convert in amazon.com from the drop down menu which amazon provides.
In this case I have experienced that they charge the pro seller fees from the site from which you have registered ( amazon.ca Fees is Approx $25 USD while amazon.com fees is $39.99 USD )
They only charge single seller fees ( For E.g. If I registered through amazon.ca they will charge the fees in accordance with amazon.ca, no matter whether i sell on amazon.com latter )
Your VCC will work on amazon.ca as well ? To pay their Pro Seller fees ?

If you are registering amazon.ca and plan on selling in Canada and the US, you will need a worldwide VCC that works for Amazon (The UK Amazon CC can work for Canada occasionally). Then if you plan on converting amazon.ca to amazon.com, and you still plan on selling in Canada and the USA, you will need another worldwide VCC with at least $39.99 on it to cover the initial fees. If you know you want to start in amazon.ca, and eventually go to amazon.com and keep selling in Canada and the USA, get a custom higher balance worldwide VCC so you don't have to update it later on.

Enough balance on it to cover the first month of amazon.ca fees, as well enough balance to cover the first month of amazon.com fees. That would be your best move. You can also add your own credit/debit card to the account which would make your life easier!

Elmooo...

I purcased a card from xx on the forum.. It was $45 for setting up a Pro account.
Initially they rejected the card.. then we deleted it and relisted.. for some reason it worked that time.. so i was thinking all is fine and dandy.
Not so.
My account is still suspended under review.. they have not given a reason.. but l have heard they now insist the VCC has my address on it..

This is a new rule. See seller help "Update your credit card details"

How are we going to deal with this?

They also wanted proof of address.. we sent a Bank statement.. but they have not commented. I am hoping they respond to my queries very soon.

Tx

That is most likely because the fees were originally denied at first with a gift card I assume. Its best to setup the account with a card that covers the first month of seller fees, rather than adding a card after its denied.

Did you initially setup the account with a VCC that did not have the funds to cover the fees?

The best you can do at this moment is to send them a message through the contact seller support button on your amazon account. Tell them you have updated cards. If they are requesting bank statement, then make sure the bank statement you provide them with has your amazon information on it.

Hello Elmo..

My account is still suspended and under review.
No reason has been given, but I suspect this is it..
Re VCC cards PLEASE NOTE NEW RULES 2017.

Why did my credit card have an error or have 'Invalid Information'?
If you receive a notification that the credit card information registered to your seller account is invalid, please check the following information:
Billing address. This has to exactly match the billing address in your credit card statement.
Check with the issuing bank to confirm that your credit card has not expired, that it has adequate credit available, and that there are no limitations on Internet charges for the amount that is being declined.

If you continue to experience problems with your card, try entering a different credit card.

THEY REQUIRE ALL CREDIT CARDS TO BE IN THE NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE ACCOUNT HOLDER

Hello elmo
Thank you for the valued info.
Do you mean amazon will test charge your CC each time when they send disbursement to you?
Or they only test charge when you change your deposit method?

Before you get a disbursement they will test charge your card. They don't do it everything though in my experience but you do need to make sure that you always have the funds available in case they do decide to issue the charge
