Navigating Amazon’s Unsuitable Inventory Policy

Amazon’s Unsuitable Inventory Policy has been a source of concern and frustration for many sellers, allowing for Amazon to dispose of or withhold inventory (and funds) due to suspected counterfeit, illegal, or unsuitable products for its platform. This policy, with its broad definition of “unsuitable,” encompasses issues from damage and expiration to violation of Amazon’s policies.
