Hurry Up and Don’t Be Late!

Amazon late shipment complaints are one of the most common reasons for getting suspended on Amazon. Even if the main reasons of these issues are not the sellers’ fault; however, Amazon wants you to solve them by yourself and as soon as possible.

Therefore, in order to avoid possible issues within your operation, you have to implement several actions in advance. Otherwise, you have to spend infinite time trying to reinstate your suspended account. Today, Jerome Basilio’s team is going to tell you about Late shipment rate suspensions, and provide you with several options which will help you avoid late suspension issues during your operation on Amazon.

About 4%

First of all, you should be aware of the fact that Amazon has a designated rate of 4% on late shipment. Once you exceed this number, you will find your account suspended by Seller Performance. Therefore, you should keep your eye on your ODR metrics, and try to do your best in order to avoid late suspension issues at any costs. Solely by maintaining proper ODR metrics, you can run a safe business on Amazon. Once you receive negative feedback from your customers stating about late shipment, Amazon will immediately suspend your seller account.

You can run a safe business on Amazon and receive positive feedback/reviews only by maintaining a positive order defect rate.

As an Amazon seller, you should keep in mind that Amazon is obsessed with its customers and does it best in order to ensure that buyers receive good customer services.

As practice shows, buyers expect to receive their shipment on time or even earlier, but once they face any delays, the possibility that they leave a negative review is too high.
