increasing numbers of claims may result in suspension of their accounts and even lead to
account termination in some of the cases. For this, sellers should take following steps to
avoid or reduce the claims and at the same time, maintain their status.

a customer is too much to deal with, sellers should arrange a team to interact with
customers and give concern to their requirements.

Sellers should make sure to stay fully aware of packaging and shipping methods providing
to their customers. This means, they should check every item before shipping it to their
customers. Vendors may even get fulfillment services from Amazon Group for the expert
level of order shipping and processing.

Most of the times, product images, product details and other simple things may cause
confusion in the minds of buyers. In this situation, it is essential for sellers to follow the
necessary marketplace guidelines to give the necessary information to sellers and thereby,
allow buyers to come up with appropriate decisions, while avoid any claim in opposition to
the sellers.
