How Long Does Amazon Hold Funds After Suspension?

No one wants to hear that their Amazon account has been suspended. But if it does happen, it's important to know what to expect next. One of the most common questions we gets is "How long does Amazon hold funds after suspension?"

The answer to that question depends on a few factors, including the reason for your suspension and whether you've appealed the decision. In this blog post, we'll answer that question and give you some tips on what to do if your funds are held up after suspension.


Why Would My Funds Be Held?
If your Amazon account is suspended, it's likely that you have violated one or more of Amazon's policies. When this happens, Amazon will typically hold your funds for up to 90 days. This is done as a precautionary measure to make sure that you don't use those funds for any unauthorized purposes and to allow for refunds and A-Z Claims to be processed.

However, there are some circumstances where Amazon may hold your funds for longer than 90 days. For example, if you have a history of policy violations, if the infraction is severe, or if they suspect you sold counterfeit goods or broke the law, Amazon may choose to withhold your funds indefinitely.

What Can I Do If My Funds Are Held?
If your Amazon account is suspended and your funds are being held, the first thing you should do is appeal the decision. You can do this by filling out an appeal form and providing additional information about why you believe the suspension is unjustified. Once you've submitted your appeal, Amazon will review your case and you may get the account reinstated and the funds will be released.

After 90 days of a suspension, you may receive your funds automatically, if Amazon decide to release them. If Amazon do not release your money, you can do a 'funds appeal' to appeal to Amazon's disbursement team for the money to be released.

Conclusion:
If your Amazon account is suspended, it's important to know what to expect in terms of fund holds. In most cases, Amazon will hold your funds for up to 90 days. However, there are some circumstances where they may hold your funds for longer. If you're facing a fund hold after suspension, the best thing you can do is appeal the decision and provide additional information about why you believe you should receive the funds.
