Contacting Amazon Seller Support is inevitable as an Amazon Seller. When it comes to selling with Amazon or any other online platform, whether we like it or not, there will come a time that issue/s will come up and we would be needing help. Knowing how and where to get appropriate help really matters. Being able to deliver your concern or issue clearly to the right people will get you the right resolution at the shortest possible time.
So, if ever you encounter issues beyond your knowledge, be it about the listing, payments, customer orders, feedback and any other possible issues that may negatively affect your Amazon Seller Account, you can only turn to one Amazon Team, the Seller Support that is. But as we know, Amazon Seller Support has tons of sub-teams located all over the world. Knowing who to contact depending on your concern is a must to get the desired support that you need.
Below are some tips we have come up with for you to be able to get the best out of your contact with Amazon Seller Support whether be it via email, chat or phone.
- Be sure to address each issue individually. Of course, you want to get the best resolution at the best possible time. But bombarding a Seller Support with all your issues all at once won’t help and it may even prolong the delivery of the resolution because of the following reasons:
- Your non-related issues might get mixed up and be neglected.
- Lumping several issues in one case may cause confusion
- Raise your concern/s over using the appropriate category in the Seller Central Support page. This is to ensure that the person whom you will be talking to is the right person with the right knowledge on the issue you are having. Moreover, doing this will also prevent your case from being bounced around from department to department which will surely delay your much-awaited resolution.
- Be clear and concise with your questions or concerns. You may sometimes find yourself to be unable to properly deliver your issue, so it would be better to take down notes before your actual contact with Seller Support.
- Give enough details about your concern. Giving Seller Support a clear picture of what’s going on or why you need help is the key to getting an appropriate answer to your question.
- Keep calm and patient. We do understand that at times you may face urgent issues and you badly need a resolution as it may negatively affect your account or your sales. But losing your cool during the contact with Seller Support won’t give you your much-desired answer. Bear in mind that if your case requires a specialist, you may be transferred accordingly and will have to wait. But you’d rather get the right answer even if it takes a bit, longer right? Fast resolution isn’t always the best.
You may also want to be ready with your account details should Seller Support require account validation or more information about your account to provide you support. Refer to the list below of what information you should have on hand.
- Seller Name or Business Name
- Registered address
- Last four digits of bank account or credit card on file
- Order Details if you need help about a customer order or trying to resolve a dispute
- Notes about the issue you are having to ensure you provide seller support all the pertinent details they might need
