Amazon Toy Category Now Restricted?

I didn't receive the original email stating my account was restricted.
AND supposedly it was Amazon Services Europe.
Who knows....seriously.

I did receive not one, not two, but three emails stating:

We recently sent you an email with the subject line “Important information about your listings on Amazon,” regarding listings in the Toys category.

This message was sent in error, so please disregard it. There are no new requirements associated with your Toys listings at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thank you for selling on Amazon,
Amazon Services

The e-commerce giant has been in talks with banks including JPMorgan Chase & Co. on a co-branded credit card for small-business owners

Almost a month late posting...ooops

I read that yesterday.
Wondering if this would be the time to grab them and then sell them later at a huge markup.

Mary Janes...yummmmmmm
Haviland Mints...definitely love those along with the Squirrel Nut Zippers.

It is awful.
I can't imagine any age group liking that.
Showed my 28 year old and my 33 year old after the above comment and both of them said they wouldn't spend a moment on that forum.

I wonder how many sellers Amazon has lost to the redesign.
I used to breeze in and breeze out of the forums, but no more.

Thanks for the article.
I've rethought the Alexa in my office.
Definitely don't want it for my Seller Account.

However, forcing websites who are not located within the state to send a letter to each customer and collect taxes for 45 states is crossing the line.

Anyway, I should change that..
I thought the policy was 90 days and then a buyer couldn't change the feedback.

Not sure what's going on in Amazon HQ these days.

My competitors...
So many are not bright at all.
Seriously, I question how they can manage day to day.
Those types of sellers that come barreling in for Christmas sales $$$ are finding out it isn't as easy as they thought it was.
Can't wait for those types to be gone.

Noted yesterday on the Amazon Seller Forums that gosh, it doesn't appear that as many persons are posting.
It has to be the redesign.

I did note the amount of sellers that posted they are leaving Amazon.
Wonder if it will hold true.

Amazon Upcoming Changes to the Seller Feedback Removal Policy

Mar 23, 2018
Currently, seller feedback is eligible for removal up to 365 days after the buyer submits it.

Effective May 17, 2018, after 90 days seller feedback will no longer be eligible for removal.

This policy change will apply to all seller feedback, including feedback submitted prior to this announcement.

Feedback removal requests must still meet all other eligibility criteria to be considered for removal.

To learn more about managing your feedback, visit

Hmmm... I thought that was the policy all along.

'The stores will, in turn, split the profits of each purchase with Google. This payment will be separate from the fee retailers pay to place ads on Google platforms.'

We're in the sandwich generation.

We've spent the better part since Feb 5th in Gainesville at the VA - Shands for my father.
BTW, if anyone ever would like to donate to an excellent program:
Fisher House Foundation

And before that, it was my husband's mother that we helped.

Blessed to be able to help them both my father and my beloved mother-in-law who passed.

You will find what you need, it's hard and requires many hours but in the end you will find what works for all.

My father is a veteran and many of his benefits helped with in home care and maybe some of those might help you.
I found in home care for my father via VA...hopefully that will help you.

My biggest disappointment was I found that many VA benefits had been cut since October of 2018 by 50% which made helping him much harder.
His designation is: Catastrophically Disabled
So sad that we promised our veterans and then promises were broken.

Your rule is similar to mine, if I'm expecting a phone call from Amazon then I will answer.
99.9% of my cases opened with Amazon state handle via email.

I have my phone set for only peeps added to my favorites list (on phone) can call after 9:00.

The reason I did that?
Ohhhh...allow me to tell you.

Amazon called me, mind you all in one night... 4 times!
After 11:00PM my time.

Had it been an issue that was very important, gotta answer right now...I'd have been thankful.

Was it?

No more.
Called the next morning to complain.
Don't know if it did any good...doubt it.

After that, only family gets thru to me after 9:00.

I still think it was a beta negative phone call.
It was their Amazon Warehouse issue.

I'm not sure if it's just me...
I received a negative feedback the other day.

I promptly received a PHONE CALL from Amazon.
I wasn't available so Amazon left a message.

The message stated:
We wanted to make you aware that a customer has left a negative feedback.
Please sign into your account and share your side of the product fulfillment.


It was fulfilled by Amazon and immediately removed once I notified them.

Has anyone else received a phone call?

I received a neutral day before yesterday on a fulfilled by Amazon.
No phone call and no removal once Amazon was notified.

I agree with hubster, he states a neutral (3) shouldn't count towards a positive or negative in our seller metrics/health report.
Especially when the wording of the feedback is a postive experience.
Goodness, I can remember wayyyyy back when and it being .10.
Rather than have the items sent back or destroyed, it was an easy choice to decide to let Amazon just keep in inventory.

Newbies gonna beeeyatch.
Thanks for posting.
Fees, Glorious Fees!
