Are you saying those sellers made bogus claims or that Amazon is making a bogus claim?
I am the OP from one of those suspension threads.
To be fair, we were not checking the inventory count on all our items. However, we knew we were dealing with reputable local (as in US and Canada based not China) suppliers AND that if there were any issues, it would be limited to a small handful (or just 1 unit) missing from an order. This combined with the fact that we used to check orders from many of these same suppliers in the past gave us confidence that the problem was not on our side when we had to open reimbursement claims for the huge surge in missing inventory (since about Nov 2017). This led to our suspension recently.
Anyways, we are back to checking everything now (additional time and money), but if the alternative is a permanent ban, I don’t see much of an option here other than quitting Amazon altogether. We chose to play ball, even if it means acknowledging that missing units are from our suppliers cheating/miscounting us, when in all probability, I think it is the Amazon warehouse where the majority of inventory goes missing.
Time to videorecord myself boxing inventory and handing it off to the UPS man it seems.
Also selling a $2,500 computer sounds like a nightmare. I stopped selling anything over $100 even because the rate of returns from customers for all kinds of reasons was not feasible.
