Default Amazon Invoices

I noted a trend that all newly created accounts 6 months or less are hit by authenticity complain and invoice requests by amazon. My legit invoice was denied by amazon so I would like to ask if any of you had any success passing through this nightmare with either legit or creative invoices? I am in a such let down situation and really looking for some hope...

Thanks

It is not true that all new accounts are hit with an authenticity complaint. New account are however temporarily restricted until you provide information confirming your identity and often times invoices for items you are selling.

You're getting hit with authenticity complaints because someone has complained, be it a customer or a brand owner.

As the poster above said, it has absolutely nothing to do with it being a new account.

Surely you must have learned by now that diving straight in there with goods likely to attract attention isn't a smart move until the account has matured ever so slightly.

It's also getting common, to the point where its beginning to look more like ebay by the day, that sellers are seeking brand registry ownership of ASINs. Goods which were once deemed generic and fair game for all are now the exclusive domain of anyone willing to spend a few quid on a trademark.

This is your own experience and needs to be analyzed to improve your business model. This is not a "general" trend.

It seems you've disproven your own claim, how can it be a general trend if you know how to avoid it in the first place.

Sell slowly, sell goods unlikely to attract attention until you've matured the account.

I visit the Amazon seller forums, there are many new seller making a bright start, Amazon are not out to nail businesses, only those who might bring trouble to their doorstep.

My take on why stealths fail (and I'm guilty myself so no angel )...carelessness driven by short term greed.

Selling that fast even on a new (1 month old, like you said) eBay account would likely get your into trouble. Of course it's going to make Amazon a little suspicious.

Have you tried slowly aging an account?

'Awful logic' claims from someone who's getting hit by authenticity complaints almost instantly and getting their accounts closed.

What do you want to hear then? Your approach is just fine and Amazon should be ashamed of themselves?

Times change, policies change, algorithms change, security requirements change. It must follow that logic changes.

I'm not name calling or judging you, I just think you're going too fast on new accounts. It's not the dollar amount, it's the relatively high number of sales you're getting in a short period on a brand new account. A real "new business" likely wouldn't have the stock on hand to start selling balls to the wall as soon as they open their account, which I guess is why your selling activity is being flagged as suspicious.

If I were you I'd handle my Amazon accounts just like I do my eBay accounts. List no more than 5 or so items during the first month. Double it the 2nd month, double it the third month, then stop purposely limiting sales after that.

Yes it does. Our best eBay account did $960k in 2018. Just printed the 1099 this morning.

If you re-read the post, I said you stop purposely limiting yourself after the first 90 days of selling. The point is to make it appear that you're a real business which is naturally growing over time.

I don't know what else to say man. I'm not trying to convince you of anything or propose a theory for you to pick apart. Just offering some advice.

For what reason? Authenticity / IP issues?

They can crop up at any time if you're selling branded goods or piggybacking Brand Registry ASINs from 10 days to 10 years old.

There's some good advice in here

Auga / The Demon, I'm willing to bet both of your are using VPS and that is playing a big part in invoice requests. We don't have to rebuttable this further, just give a new setup a try and see if you still have the problem.

Try using dedicated laptops + hotspot if you're in the US, or if you're outside: dedicated VPNs from either 24vc or IPBurger, or virtual machines + dedicated VPNs.

I personally think this has to do with the lack of feedback but nowadays feedback on sold items is so low, I have sold 10 items without receiving a feedback.

Automotive is a risky category thanks to an abundance of counterfeit auto parts

I have a private label / brand of my own and a few others. Now i need to get back on again. This time I believe i'll separate it per account. Rookie mistake on my end. All my eggs were in one basket.

You pretty much can sell right away.
unlike with eBay with Amazon you need to verify the account in the beginning and once it passes you can pretty much sell.

Category restrictions will need approval, so my suggestion is to do low risk stuff for the first 3 months to build that history.
