FAQ: Listing Deactivated On Amazon.


To help prevent pricing errors Amazon have setup a new Safety Net on their site which allows users to enter a Minimum and Maximum (Min/Max) Price for each of your listings. These Min/Max Prices are separate to the Min/Max Prices you set in SellerExpress.

If you don’t set a Min/Max Price on your products on Amazon, Amazon will apply their own Min/Max Prices. This can lead to your listings being deactivated by Amazon if the price uploaded doesn’t fit within their Min/Max.

Why Are My Listings Deactivated?
If your listings have been deactivated it means that a price has been uploaded to Amazon which is outside of the Min/Max Prices allowed.

If you have set your own Min/Max Price on Amazon this means that the price uploaded is outside of these thresholds. You may need to review the Min/Max Prices on Amazon to make sure that Amazons still fit your needs.

If you haven’t set a Min/Max Price on Amazon this means that the price being set is outside of Amazon’s automatic Min/Max Prices for that product. The best way around this is to add your own Min/Max Prices to your products on Amazon.
How Do I Reactive My Listings?
Once your listing has been deactivated you can easily reactivate it by updating the product with a price that is within your Amazon Min/Max Price. Please remember, if your rules in SellerExpress have been setup to allow a price beyond Amazon Min/Max then you’ll need to update your Rules or Min/Max Prices to avoid this happening again.

Can SellerExpress Help? 
As this is Amazon’s Safety Net we don’t upload Min/Max Prices to it. We can still help you with this though. If you get in touch with our support team we can generate a file ready for upload to Amazon with your SellerExpress Min/Max Prices ready to upload to Amazon. Just get in touch and ask.
