Amazon Late Shipment Suspension

Why Choose Us?


We receive lots of enquiries from Amazon Sellers who need help writing an appeal letter because of an Amazon Late Shipment Suspension.

Amazon sellers know that Amazon has a maximum late shipment rate of 4%. Anything above 4% usually results in a suspension, Amazon suspends the account and will request a Plan of action along with an appeal. 

There are often lots of reasons why Sellers are unable to ship items on time including those which are out of the Sellers control such as strikes, bad weather, political issues etc.


It can be very frustrating when an Amazon buyer complains that the product is late through no fault of the Seller. However the Seller must submit an appeal and plan of action to address the issues.

Amazon will usually ask you to provide a detailed Appeal letter and plan of action.

We often speak to Amazon Sellers who have tried their best in putting together a late shipment Appeal Letter and Plan of Action only to have misunderstood what Amazon are looking for, it's usually only after a few weeks and several frustrating emails that the Sellers get in touch for some advice and ask us to take over the process. While we can and do help out it is much quicker and simpler to get it right first time.

Sometimes Amazon sellers have exhausted the appeal process with Seller Performance and we will help escalate the appeal to the escalations team.
