Amazon Account Deactivated

Hi everyone!
Seems like I got into this loophole as well.
I have tried and tried and tried to get my suspension back last year and then I gave up.
I decided to give it one more try and try and reactivate my account if anyone can help me.
Like many sellers, I had just started on Amazon and things were going reasonably well until one other competitor seller decided to claim his product back and sell exclusively, suspending my account.
The problem is that I did have all the permissions necessary to resell the product since I had an invoice from an authorized and recognised reseller. The claim of the seller who got my account suspended was that my product was a copycat of his, basically that it was fake and so I was selling a counterfeit product.
I have tried to personally contact the seller to explain that I bought the product from a reseller as well without any success. Now after many attempts to explain myself, I got unjustly shut down, when I was actually conducting a legal and legit business.
Can I close this account and open a new one? Or will they reject me?

Here’s what Amazon says about reinstating my account:

Hello @SoniaFarrah,

I am sorry to hear that your Seller Account has been deactivated due to alleged Intellectual Property Rights Infringement. From your post it appears like you are not being asked for a Plan of Action - Amazon wants you to tick boxes and also submit the proof of authenticity, therefore this shouldn’t be difficult at all.

As a new seller, I would strongly advise you to avoid any battles with competitors. It would be helpful if you posted a picture or some information about the competitor’s product and your own product for better advice.

Were you sharing the same listing or did you have a separate listing? What was the product?

Maybe @Akmal will be also able to advise.


I have no personal experience, but this Facebook group I’ve followed for years and have seen all kinds of people getting suspended and reinstated. Some don’t for sure, but I bet you can find some real experience on the subject here.

Ed Rosenberg is a very big name in the Amazon world. Has helped a lot of people.
