Phishing e-mails targeting Amazon sellers are on the rise

Recently, there has been a surge in a new type of phishing e-mails, which are targeting Amazon sellers.

These e-mails are obviously fake, as you can see that the sender address doesn’t originate from Amazon, but takes you to a completely fraudulent Amazon login page, hoping to trick you into providing your login details.

Usually, the victims end up being Amazon sellers who only operate their Seller Accounts using their phone, which means that they just click on the link, without checking for more information.

Here you can see two examples of such e-mails:

Amazon is now giving sellers the exact reason for Restricted Products Removal

Kika Angelic

If you are a third party seller doing business on Amazon’s platform, you might be already aware that they are rarely providing any clear reason at all for their enforcements. Amazon can remove your listings anytime and if you wish to have them reactivated, you will have to invest a significant amount of time and resources into appealing.

Recently, Amazon started briefly clarifying reasons for listing blocks in relevant notices, which includes those subject to Restricted Products Removal. If you carefully review the wording of e-mail received from Amazon, you will be able to detect, why they were removed.

By the way of example, a recent Restricted Products Removal notice states:

“Jewellery products cannot be described as “8 carat gold”, “10 carat gold” or similar as these are not recognised finesses of gold in the UK. For more info, please see the following; https://sellercentral.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/external/help.html?itemID=201744030&language=en_GB&ref=efph_201744030_relt_201744010”

The text of your notice should address your listing’s specific reasons.

Here you can view an example full e-mail from Amazon regarding Restricted Products Removal:

Notification of Restricted Products Removal

Hello from Amazon,
We are writing to let you know that the following detail pages have been removed from our catalog:

ASIN: XXX, SKU: XXX, Title: XXX

Why is this happening?

We took this action because this product is not permitted for sale on Amazon.co.uk. It is your obligation to make sure the products you offer comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and Amazon’s policies.

What actions do I need to take?

– If any of the above ASINs are Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) offers, please initiate a removal request for the ASIN(s) referenced above to have your inventory sent to a location of your choosing. If you fail to initiate a removal request within 30 days of this notification, we may dispose of it in accordance with the Amazon Services Europe Business Solutions Agreement and FBA policies.

How to recover your Amazon Seller Account when Two Step Verification Fails

Kika Angelic

Published

As you know, Amazon now requires all third party sellers to implement two step verification in order to access their Seller Accounts. Many sellers are reaching out to me and seeking help with regaining access to their accounts when they are unable to perform two step verification.

This may happen when a seller loses their phone, for example. In such case, they will be unable to receive the OTP text code. If Two-Step Verification fails and you can’t access your account, you can try to recover it using alternative means.

To regain access to your account, you’ll need to verify your identity by providing a scan or photo of a government-issued identity document to Amazon. To protect your account, Amazon won’t be able to make changes to your Two-Step Verification settings until your identity is successfully verified. If you are able to sign in to your account, you’ll have access to make changes to your account.

Before you begin account recovery, try to sign in with a registered backup method or from a trusted device.

If you still can’t sign in, to recover your account:

  1. Go here
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload your identity document. Make sure that your name and address, and the issuing authority (e.g., state or country) are visible. Cover, conceal, or remove sensitive information such as account numbers or identification numbers. 

The verification process can take 1-2 days to complete. Amazon will e-mail you to confirm once Two-Step Verification has been disabled. You’ll then be able to access your account with only your password.

New requirement for list prices on Amazon starts June 30

Kika Angelic

Published

If you are an Amazon Seller doing business on their US platform, you must have received Amazon’s warning e-mail entitled New requirement for list prices starts June 30 in your inbox. Starting that date, Amazon will require any newly created listings to contain the List Price.

If you are wondering why is setting a List Price so important for Amazon, in this article I will be addressing your concerns. Whilst it will only take you a few seconds to update any listing with a List Price, you may not be aware of its pros and cons.

Once you upload the List Price, Amazon will save this figure as the product’s RRP. When you try to decrease or increase the product price later, your listing will get automatically deactivated over a Potential high / low pricing error or you will lose the BuyBox.

This is why you should carefully rethink whether you will provide this attribute on your existing listings and what figure will be entered as the List Price. 

On the other hand, List Price can be a good idea when you have an otherwise expensive product, which you intend to sell at a significant discount. It is then shown as a strike-through Recommended Retail Price making the savings visible on the product detail page. Displaying the RRP when you are offering a price that is below it, will help customers understand the value of your offer, which may help to increase conversion. 

If you do not have a ready-to-provide list price, Amazon suggests that a possible value could be the first price at which you have offered or will be offering the product. You can also provide a value of 0 to indicate that you do not have a list price.

Here you can view a copy of the wording of Amazon’s e-mail regarding the matter:

New requirement for list prices starts June 30

Hello,

You are receiving this email because you have previously added offers for certain product types that commonly include list prices.

Beginning June 30, 2023, we will require the “List price” (also referred to as a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) attribute to be completed for these product types. 

Your existing offers will not be affected by this change. Rather, when you create a new item listing, or when you edit an existing listing, you will see a prompt to fill out the “List price” attribute. 

If you do not have a ready-to-provide list price, a possible value could be the first price at which you have offered or will be offering the product. You can also provide a value of 0 to indicate that you do not have a list price.

For more information, go to “Product type and attributes”:

You can download the full list of impacted product types from the following link:
