How long do policy violations stay on your Amazon account?

Policy violations on Amazon can range from low level offenses, such as pricing issues, to more serious violations, such as counterfeit goods or paying for reviews. Depending on the offense, policy violations can stay on your account for a set period of time or indefinitely. In this blog post, we'll discuss the different types of policy violations and how long they stay on your account.


Types of Policy Violations
There are two main types of policy violations on Amazon: those that result in an immediate suspension of your account and those that do not. Immediate suspensions are typically reserved for the most serious offenses, such as selling counterfeit products or paid reviews. If you receive an immediate suspension, it is typical that you can appeal for reinstatement of your selling privileges. However, depending on the severity of the offense, you may not be approved and the violation will remain in your account forever, it will have to be successfully appealed for you to ever sell again.

Non-immediate policy violations typically result in a warning from Amazon and/or a removal of your listing's visibility. These types of violations are typically less serious than those that result in an immediate suspension and usually only stay on your account for a set period of time, such as 180 days. However, if you accumulate multiple policy violations, even if they are non-immediate, Amazon may take action against your account. These violations can be removed if you successfully appeal them inside your account.

Conclusion:
Policy violations on Amazon can have serious consequences for your account. Depending on the offense, you may receive anything from a warning to a suspended account. If you accumulate multiple policy violations, even if they are non-immediate, Amazon may take action against your account. It's important to familiarize yourself with Amazon's policies and make sure you are in compliance at all times to avoid any penalties.
