Here you can find a successful Plan of Action addressing this exact same issue, which I recently provided to one of my clients:

Dear Amazon Seller Performance Team,

thank you for your opportunity to appeal my warning due to inappropriate (unprofessional) contacts.

Root cause :

  • Lack of training provided to staff

  • I understand that I have had inappropriate or unprofessional contacts with community of Amazon.

  • The complaining customer called me threatening me to kill my seller account if I didn’t give him the product for free. I called him back but he wouldn’t pick up, so I wrote to him on amazon. I should have told amazon about this scam attempt.

  • I have cancelled the order.

  • The buyer wrote a negative seller feedback.

  • I was wrong to want to solve this problem alone without informing Amazon.

The actions that you have taken to resolve the issue :

  • I acknowledge that I have read and agree to comply with the Selling Policies and Seller Code of Conduct.

  • I sent apologies to the customers.

  • I have removed the claim against the buyer at the police station.

  • I have read and reviewed all Amazon policy on Seller communications to ensure my contacts are all in line with Amazon policies.

amazon buyer seller messaging service policy and

selling policies and seller code of conduct.

  • I decided to review the formatting of my messages in order to express myself correctly and to avoid oral language in my written messages.

  • I also decided to pay attention to my punctuation to prevent the customer from feeling attacked when that was not my intention.

  • Conducting regular training events for employees on Amazon’s policies.

  • Conducting regular assessments of employees’ knowledge of Amazon’s policies

The steps that you have taken to prevent any Amazon policy violations in future :

  • I acknowledge that I developed and completed all necessary corrective actions to prevent any Amazon policy violations in future.

  • if it happens again I will report it to Amazon.

  • if a customer threatens or insults me I will keep calm and report it to Amazon. There is a dedicated option in messaging which I have used before but don’t use enough to appeal to Amazon.

  • I inquired today in order to get help in managing messages and therefore contact with the customer. From this Monday, February 20, 2023, I am hiring a person who will be in charge of this communication in order to improve the customer experience.

  • I have enrolled in anger management classes every Thursday.

  • Hired employee with experience in Amazon’s policies.

  • I will update this person on a weekly basis to enforce the Amazon Customer Conduct Policy.

  • This person has already worked in call centers and specializes in customer contact.

  • I will ensure in future that I only make contact with Amazon customers where absolutely necessary, and any contact that I make will be polite and courteous. I will only present any facts of the case and will not include any personal opinions or remarks.

  • I had decided to conduct sessions two days in a week on amazon services business solution agreement to being updated regarding amazon new and old policies.

  • I decided to choose fulfillment by amazon FBA option to avoid problems.

I believe that this appeal sufficiently addresses the issue.

Kind Regards
