Just over a week ago I got an email from Amazon…
You incorrectly selected the ‘Individual’ legal entity when you registered
welcome to the Seller forums!
Regarding your question:
What happened to you typically follows once an Amazon seller with a large or pricy inventory registers as a non-business entity.
Since you already corrected everything, you will need to wait.
Seller Account verifications can take anything from a few days to months.
If you would like to speed up the process, you can e-mail [email protected].
I hope you liked my answer.
Thanks for your reply and advice. Its now 13 days since I posted and my account is still blocked. To be fair to Amaon 50% is my fault - I hadnt realised just how many hoops one has to jump throught to be anything other than a ‘private seller’.
Just another question - the email you gave me - is this actually the office doin the verification - do they respond in realtime? My delay is really because they ask a question for another proof of ‘x’ via performance notifications then a whole 24 hours passes before they respond, then i respond and another 24 hours passes etc.
Secondly are they happy for us to use this email?
yes, the e-mail I gave you is the actual department that handles account verification.
But account verifications are often taking months and if you don’t manage to achieve anything, the issue can be only escalated by e-mailing Jeff or submitting a complaint with the BBB.
