Amazon Launches the Account Health Rating Tool | What This Means for You
Amazon has just announced the launch of a new tool called the “Account Health Rating” feature. You can find this feature on the Account Health page for professional sellers. Sometimes, Amazon sellers unintentionally violate Amazon’s selling policies, which can end up causing a remarkable disruption to their businesses. For this very reason, the new Account Health Rating tool was created to help sellers ensure that they are always adhering to Amazon’s selling policies by giving sellers a clear visual of their account health in terms of adhering to those policies.
How does the AHR work?
When determining your account health, AHR will account for the number of unresolved policy violations for your account, as well as the seriousness of those violations, and to what degree you satisfy your customers as a seller. If you receive a notification that your account is either “at-risk” or “critical,” you are close to being deactivated, and you must do what you can to improve your performance and resolve the policy violations at hand. By addressing your violations by either editing your listings to ensure they are compliant or appealing the violations successfully, you can improve your AHR. When you resolve any violations, your AHR will update within 48 hours of you doing so.
You should understand, however, that simply having a solid AHR does not mean your account will not be deactivated; if Amazon catches you violating your contract, as well as any local laws, tax requirements, or any other illicit or fraudulent activity, your account may still be deactivated regardless of your AHR.
