Let’s cut to the chase: you won't find any Amazon contact number seller support anywhere on the web, not even in the deepest recesses of the internet. It is not posted on the Amazon Services Central Forum or any Amazon website. 

But what if you need to settle an Amazon Seller Account suspension? How will you reach out to Amazon?

Amazon has no longer offered the public a dedicated Seller Support contact number. Instead, they've set up a systematic approach for their troubled sellers to be able to reach out to them. This article will tell you how to communicate with Amazon customer service when resolving an issue—such as appealing for your account’s suspension.

18 Tips to Write an Appeal Effectively

  1. Check and solve any pending issues you have before writing a plan of action.
  2. Write a detailed Amazon suspension appeal letter with a plan of action before the deadline.
  3. Be apologetic, sincere, clear, and persuasive when writing your appeal letter.
  4. Don't blame Amazon or the buyer.
  5. Take responsibility for the mistake, even if it is not your fault.
  6. Avoid sending follow-up emails or asking about the status of your appeal or case.
  7. Ensure that all your products comply with Amazon's policies to avoid being suspended again.
  8. Don't forge or alter the supporting documents that you will attach to the email.
  9. Point out each issue or question you have separately to make sure Amazon Seller Central Support representatives understand each of your concerns clearly. 
  10. Avoid sending questions or issues in bulk because it will only make the waiting time longer since your case needs to be solved by different departments.
  11. Be specific, direct to the point, and detailed with your explanations, whether it's a direct email or via Seller Central.
  12. Use proper grammar and sentence structure. Don't use flowery words and write your sentences comprehensively.
  13. Mention the solutions you've tried so far so you won't waste time getting suggestions you have already tried.
  14. List down all your issues before contacting the Seller Support team to avoid forgetting them, especially when you are in the middle of a conversation on the phone.
  15. Deliver the email to the right department to prevent it from getting lost in the sea of emails.
  16. Remember that Amazon will call you and not the other way around. Ensure your line is open at all times.
  17. The phone number must match the one you've registered on your Seller Central account. Amazon will check the phone number from your records; they will ignore your case if it is a different number.
  18. Before a phone call, prepare your Seller Account details and billing information because the representative might ask you about these for verification purposes. Plus, a pen and paper for note-taking.

Not Getting a Response? Here’s How to Get One—According to an Expert

Getting past the system to reach a dedicated associate who would personally attend to your case takes time and a few strategic moves. One better way to handle this is to direct to an Amazon reinstatement service.

Here’s Likitha Sira, one of the account managers at Seller Interactive. Her extensive experience working for Amazon has made her the go-to person for seller’s accounts or product-related cases. Here’s a summary of Likitha’s advice on how to effectively present a case to Amazon via email that will get a response.

  • Voice out how you feel about the issue; use words like frustration or disappointment.
  • Supply all necessary details throughout your correspondence.
  • Provide screenshots to emphasize and prove your point.
  • If the associate requests information already supplied in your previous email, reply by asking them to specify it.
  • Write your subject line in all caps to catch their attention.


Use the solutions above if you need to reach Amazon. Remember to be patient since Amazon customer support reps deal with hundreds or thousands of issues daily. Choose a suitable contact method to get a successful response to your every question.

It can be frustrating for any seller when there’s no direct way to contact Amazon, especially if you want your account to be reinstated from suspension immediately. Worry no more because Seller Interactive has a team of experienced consultants willing to help reinstate your account.
