Amazon suspending accounts

February 21, 2013

We have been having a problem with Amazon regarding the following products:

·         Tequila in gun shaped bottles, including: Old Carbine, AK-T, Caliber, Hijos
·         Any product with “moonshine” in the title
·         Any product with “whipped” or “whipped cream” in the title


Amazon has suspended a number of accounts for including these products. Even when the products have been removed from the feed, Amazon has still not lifted the suspensions. 


In order to prevent this from happening to your account, we strongly suggest disabling all of these products from your site immediately.  Do not forget to remove virtual SKUs as well. If you need any assistance with this, or if you have any additional questions, please let us know. 


Considering this new enforcement policy, as well as moves Amazon has been making at the state level regarding third-party marketers, this may be part of a larger shift that Amazon is making in how it sells and markets alcohol.
