Nowadays, Amazon is a recognized leader in online sales which provides people all over the world with a unique chance to build a successful and profitable business, despite the fact that the world is in chaos. Covid-19 caused a tremendous shift in businesses’ operation and thousands of successful brands had to close their physical stores because of the tremendous drop in sales. Lots of popular brands such as Neiman Marcus and JCPenney have filed for bankruptcy and stop their operation.

According to several statistics, more than 25,000 physical stores in the United States will fold over the next year because of the lasting growth of e-commerce sales. Therefore, day by day, more and more people are rushing to set up seller accounts on Amazon.

In order to cope with a strong stream of sellers who are wishing to start selling on its platform, Amazon has started to require more details concerning the verification process.

Recently, Amazon announced that from now on, it requires two forms of identification. You can read one of our previous blogs about the verification process in 2020. It will help you monitor the changeability of Amazon’s rules.

The main goal of Amazon’s verification process is to protect its customers from black hat sellers, who are running unfair businesses on Amazon and promote the spread of counterfeit products on its platform.  If you are an FBA seller, then  you should also read  our blog about the  verification suspension for FBA sellers.

In order to protect our readers from any unforeseen issues concerning the verification suspension, Got Suspended Clients are going to tell you Amazon’s main requirements concerning the verification suspension in 2021.

A Verification Process!

Generally, the verification suspension in comprised of two main parts:

  • First of all, Amazon asks you to answer several questions concerning both you and your business.
  • Secondly, you have to provide Amazon with all the necessary documents which will prove your authenticity.

In order to pass a verification process, you have to have at hand the following information:

  • Legal business name
  • Business address
  • Contact Information
  • Email address of your company’s account
  • An internationally chargeable credit card
  • A Phone Number
  • Social security numbers
  • Federal Tax ID number

So, if you intend to start your business on Amazon but are not sure whether you can do it without having a business entity, then we are rushing to bring you positive news:

Guess what? Even if you don’t have a business entity, you can still jump on Amazon as a sole proprietorship.

Everyone’s on the Same Boat!

Keep in mind that even if you are an existing seller, you are not protected from getting a verification suspension. That’s because Amazon is watching every move you make. Once you have changed your address or a telephone number without notifying Amazon, the possibility that your account will get suspended increases.

Additionally, you should strictly understand that when you submit your documents, you have to include every single page, since Amazon wants to make sure that you include all the necessary information. In this case, the possibility of forging documents is significantly reduced.

Another crucial aspect when it comes to the verification suspension, is a Plan of Action that you are going to submit along with your documents.  Here you have to explain Amazon the whole situation with your suspension and kindly ask the Amazon Seller Performance team to return your selling privileges. If you are not sure that you will be able to handle your suspension by yourself, then we are ready to help you.  For many years, the Got Suspended Clients’ team have been successfully reinstating suspended accounts of many sellers.
