Default Amazon, going on 2 months sell volume question

I have a clean Amazon account going on 60 days now. The first 30 days I sold 350 worth of product. This month I'm up to just under 400. Would it be safe to simply double the first month in sales volume?

Does Amazon look more at the volume $, or the quantity of items sold?
Also, if I were to sell lets say 700$ in volume in 2 days vs. spreading it out week to week would this help, or does in not matter...?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds risky even doing 350 in one month....I have a account and have been doing 4-6 dvd sales each day and so far seems ok its only 4 days old...It might be ok depends on what you are selling. what are you selling and for how much?

in my opinion you can go up to $1,500 a month after you pass the 1st 30 days of the acct.

I'm selling about 7-10 thousand a month, and this is after an account review. There is no method to the madness. Amazon makes up **** as they go.

This is from my experience and it's not 100% confirmed.

Typically, new account can sell up to $700 (or a bit more) in the first payment cycle. However, if you close the first month with $300 sales, it's probably not a good idea to go up too high in difference. Around $500 would be a good number to close your sales for next month.

Please also note that feedback plays an important element on how high and how soon you can increase your limit. Take extra care for buyers' special request usually can earn you an immediate feedback.

Follow up: Looks like Amazon closed my account for good. I sold about $$700-800 within a week. My account was going on 60 days. I dispersed two times (550 total) in the past week. Their famous email follows.
****y.....

Wow, how long did they hold your money for? I had no idea about the limits they had until a few days ago when I had over $2000 in sales and a profit of a little less than $400. Do you have a Pro Seller account or regular account?

No there is no way to find out how much they will let you sell. Amazon is very tricky trying to figure out

i agree with that....just keep your sales in moderation for 1st 30 to 60 days...in my opinion 1 or 2 a day is pretty safe.

Actually, you can call seller support and ask them what your velocity limit is.
They'll tell you.

800-201-7575 (customer service) -- ask them to transfer you over to seller support.

Just be sure to have ALL your acct info handy b/c they will ask you questions to verify.

I don't know how long they will hold funds for. 90 days I think. Funny thing is, I submitted my second disbursement on the 8th for only $275. I received the email stating my account was closed on the 10th (two business days later), and I find out today that the disbursement was reversed (damn fu@&ers)

So for any of you selling on Amazon with a fresh account look these facts over before doing so.

Products sold in first 30 days:
3 items
$350.00 total

Products sold in 60 days:
7 items
$675.00 total

Two Dibursements in 72 hours

(1) Positive Feedback score

ACCOUNT CLOSED =( Boo Hoo


The frequent disbursements may have been the red flag???

Time for me to start from scratch again...thank god for this forum.

Your numbers look fine. It may be the products you are selling.
Do you mind pointing out what kind the products and what category you are selling under?

If you read what they sent you, someone clearly claimed that you were selling bootlegs. This happened to me recently. All it takes is one competitor or customer who feels like being a dick to report you to amazon, and, regardless of whether its true or not, you're done. Amazon is presumably very careful about the potential fines they could receive for allowing resellers to list dubbed media, so they would be extremely quick to pull the trigger in those circumstances.

do you think a competitor has to actually buy a product, then claiming with amazon that it is ⊗⊗⊗⊗ before amazon suspends the seller? or can a competitor just contact amazon without buying the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ goods and telling amazon they think it's ⊗⊗⊗⊗ stuff?
