Default several blocked listings of normal NON risky items?

I have only ten items listed as of now to see how things progress. The items Im selling are very low risk ink toner or cartridges. I had five of them blocked today. No email or explanations.. what gives? Is amazon trying to micromanage me or something?

Can I resist them after awhile or what?

What do you mean by blocked? How do you know it's blocked? Have you looked in your account to see if there's any messages from Seller Performance?

I believe there are counterfeit toner cartridges out there, and I know there are counterfeit ink cartridges. This area seems low risk but it actually isn't. I would certainly not list such items before I had a nice selling history with 10 or so positive feedback.

It says blocked in inventory. So far I haven't seen anything. So until I get 10+ should I just sell what I can and then try?

open a case for it. 99% they will fix it for you unless you got a notification from them. happened to me before. I opened a case asking why and they re listed the item for me.

I sell refurbished items and send them with new accessories. I used to put in the description "comes with brand new ______" and my listings were blocked because I had the word "new" in a condition that wasn't. I changed it to "comes with unused _____" and it automatically unblocked my listings.

Could be something like this happening.

They normally block listings if they think they have violated their policies or if the goods are likely to be counterfeit. If you feel this is strongly a mistake and your items are genuine you need to contact Amazon seller performance. Contact them via: seller-performance@amazon.co.uk

Ink cartridges are not truly low risk...

Of course they are IF amazon bot's consider them to be so.

Unless you know the wording of the listing, your comment is moot.

Amazon bot's can still let list but always checking for potential counterfeits

I've had listings blocked for that, Amazon said "bundling of products is not allowed", but it could of been from other competitors complaining about me changing my descriptions on my own ASINs.

Bear in mind that you're now under the microscope, if they've slapped you for stuff you wrote in condition notes before. Do nothing risky!
