I have had my account open now for nearly a month, and I have sold the vast majority of the overstock items I opened my seller account to sell. This currently amounts to $1,500 dollars in merchandise that I have already shipped out to the buyer. I understand the 21 day hold to receive money on new accounts; it’s longer than needed in my opinion, but I understand the need for anti-fraud measures like these.
What I don’t understand is now that I am due to be paid a fraction of what is due to me for my sales, my account is now under “review”…?? I have not received a single bad feedback, nor return. I have 1 primary buyer, an insurance business that I know personally and I am being told that after I have:
- Paid over $100 out of my own pocket for shipping these products
- Shipped these items out, and thus cannot recover them
- Paid Amazon fees for these sales off the top,
that I now have to wait at least another month to be paid? This is hurting my bottom line, and has cost me money that I wouldn’t have even needed to come out of if I had’ve gone with, say, eBay. I have been patient with the review process, complied with all requests, and I can’t get an answer as to why this is happening or when I can actually expect to recover from my sales.
I did research about this online (google), and was terrified to find that this is a common occurrence. RipOffReport has numerous complaints about this practice, one of such actually put a small business our of business. I really hope that this isn’t the case here, because I already feel like I am getting the run-around, and worse, in a week and a half, this will start to have a very real financial effect on my office.
