The Bizarre Case of the Missing Amazon Listings

By: Reader

Sponsored Link

Dear Ina,
I signed up to become an Amazon seller. I was given instructions on how to upload a file of my items. Despite numerous attempts, my items never appeared on Amazon. Then I was billed $2 as a commission on sales I never made. After many useless discussions, I demanded a refund of the $2 and cancellation of my seller account.

Yesterday I received an email from Amazon Services titled Notification of Restricted Items Removed. It was followed by a list of all the items I had tried to post. 

Why did it take FIFTEEN YEARS? It was 15 years ago that I uploaded the file and then canceled my account. 

I thought you'd find this interesting, have a great weekend,
Izzy

Blame it on the bots. I have had  items that I sold years ago and no longer have in stock "removed".
Don"t even get me started on the bots and their "pricing errors" judgements.

As with all my seller accounts, I use the forms to post listings one at a time, and not cvs or other lists. It is more effective and easier to do it that way than have to wait to see my products posted anywhere. I don't see why one should think that a list is easier to use than the form. It eliminates any ambiguity and ensures that the product will be seen right away. Amazon is no different from eBay or Rakuten. Obviously the minions at Amazon did not know how to use the list and never notified you this was the case. It's their fault not yours.
