Has Amazon’s program to allow items with price + shipping = less than $10 to be shipped without tracking (using USPS First Class) been discontinued? Amazon is now telling me that all of the orders that I shipped without tracking are Invalid Tracking now.
Here is the program as described by Amazon in October 2019:

Hello from Amazon Selling Partner Support,
I understand that you would like to know the steps to take when confirming shipping on orders for small items priced less than $10.
I would like to inform you that for shipping small products and products less that $10, our system detects such orders and for such orders valid tracking number will not affect the Account metrics. You only have to ensure that the price is less than $10 and the carrier used is USPS.
Regarding steps to confirm shipments for small products and products less that $10 there is no special procedure other than the above mentioned steps.
Although we require you to provide valid tracking numbers for 95% of your U.S. shipments, items small enough to be sent in First Class or Standard Mail envelopes are excluded from this requirement, meaning you won’t incur a penalty stemming from these types of shipments.
Only now I am getting dinged on my metrics. Any help out there?
