Why Choose Our Amazon Arbitration Service?
If you find yourself at a deadlock with Amazon, having pursued all avenues of appeal and escalated the matter to top management without a favorable outcome, you need a lawyer to sue Amazon. Our arbitration service emerges as the optimal solution. We provide a route to Amazon seller arbitration, your only available recourse due to the binding arbitration clause in the Business Solutions Agreement.
You are entitled to a hearing before an independent arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association, who is typically a qualified attorney or retired judge. Further, you can choose to have an attorney represent you during the arbitration, which can be conducted in your home state/country or over the telephone.
Our Amazon Arbitration Approach
We caution against firms that offer to settle arbitration claims merely by drafting letters to external counsel, without officially filing for arbitration. With extensive experience in Amazon arbitration, we are familiar with their external counsel. We believe that writing letters only serves to postpone your case's outcome as external counsel usually only intervenes in disputes when an arbitration has been filed. Avoid squandering your time and resources with no tangible outcome.
Our Amazon Arbitration Success Stories
We are proud of our record of significant wins in cases against Amazon. In February and March 2023 alone, we secured victories in three cases, including one where the seller was awarded nearly half a million dollars in damages. In several arbitrations, we have also successfully invalidated Amazon's clause permitting them to indefinitely retain your funds.
Significant Wins in First Quarter 2023
In an arbitration against Amazon.com, an ex-judge sitting as an arbitrator in Florida ruled in February 2023 that section 2 of the BSA imposed a penalty and was an unenforceable liquidated damages clause. The judge also ruled that failure to submit to an in-person video verification interview by Amazon was not a condition to release of the seller’s sales proceeds being held by Amazon, and that the seller was entitled to its sales proceeds notwithstanding the fact that it breached the BSA by committing review manipulation, which is against Amazon’s policies. The judge awarded the seller almost half a million dollars in damages.
On March 15, 2023, in another case against Amazon by a Chinese seller, an arbitrator sitting in Tennessee ruled that section 2 of the BSA was an unenforceable penalty clause in another reivew manipulation case. The arbitrator also struck the clause as unconscionable, and held that the seller was entitled to its proceeds notwithstanding its breach of the BSA. The award was for over $340,000 with interest from the date of account deactivation.
In the largest of the three cases, also on March 15th, an arbitrator in Texas ordered Amazon to disburse almost $800,000 to a Chinese seller, ruling that Amazon breached its duties under the BSA to distribute the seller’s proceeds, that the verification of the seller’s identity in an in-person video verification procedure was not a condition to the release of those funds, and that section 2 of the BSA was not a valid liquidated damages clause.
How to Arbitrate Against Amazon?
An arbitration is like a court proceeding. Therefore, an experienced Amazon sellers lawyer is imperative. Our Amazon lawyers have over 40 years of litigation experience, including countless trials and arbitrations. They know the Amazon arbitration process and can guide you through it. An arbitration is not cheap, but losses of an Amazon seller account due to suspension can amount to thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, so in these cases, it is worth the expense.
Amazon's Business Solutions Agreement also contains a clause that says that Amazon can keep your money if they think you have used your seller account to engage in fraudulent or illegal activity, or have repeatedly violated their policies. We have succeeded in getting this clause invalidated in many arbitrations. No other attorneys can represent you as well as our Amazon attorneys can.

Important Updates to Arbitration Clause
Amazon's Business Solutions Agreement provides that changes to it become effective within 14 days. The latest incarnation of the agreement has done away with the seller's election for an arbitration by telephone or written submissions. A hearing by written submission involves no live testimony, and the matter is submitted to Amazon by written declarations of the parties and briefs.
This doesn't mean that you still cannot have a hearing by written submissions, which is usually more cost-effective. It is up to the parties to agree or the arbitrator to set such a hearing.
