What kind of relief can you expect to receive from Amazon in an arbitration?
This is also something determined by the agreement. Some third-party sellers on Amazon feel they have been genuinely wronged, and their account should be reinstated.
What about losses for the time your store was down? Again, the business solutions agreement has a clause that provides that Amazon will not be liable for any loss of profit, revenue, business or data or punitive or consequential damages arising out of or relating to the agreement. And, again, Washington courts have held such agreements to be enforceable, although not specifically in the case of Amazon.
So, it is possible to sue Amazon, but, as with everything, prevention is always better than the cure. Although Amazon’s systems are fallible, and may result in unjust discipline against some third-party sellers, a good compliance program to educate third-party sellers and their employees on Amazon’s selling policies, and to put systems into practice to ensure compliance with those policies; whether it be sourcing, listing, packaging, order fulfillment, or shipping, can keep you out of court.
