You've been on Amazon for years, doing everything right - you think! Then you receive the following email:
"We have removed your selling privileges, cancelled your listings, and placed a temporary hold on any funds in your seller account. We took these actions because you have listed items that are not permitted on Amazon.com."
Banned?! What the ...! You sell beauty items - things to make people look good!
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Over the past year, hundreds of online merchants got the boot for offering restricted items on Amazon, mostly health and beauty products which contain specific outlawed ingredients.
