Strategic and Proactive Methods to Protect your Amazon Listings from Hijackers
Amazon sellers face a constant threat: counterfeiters stealing the BUY BOX with products that do not match your listings. Amazon's open catalog system, unfortunately, makes it too easy for unscrupulous sellers to "list against" your ASINs and enjoy the benefits of your hard work, intellectual property, and good reviews.
When you report a counterfeiter to Amazon, you'll often get an automated response requesting that YOU do a "test buy" to prove that the counterfeiter's product does not match the listing. But guess what? I can help you bypass the "test buy requirement" and get that counterfeiter removed sooner rather than later. No need to wait 6+ weeks for the knockoff to come from China. Please visit Counterfeit Seller Removal to learn more. I take the position that it's better to be proactive to keep your listings clear of unauthorized sellers who will destroy your reviews and brand reputation, as well as drive down the price of your products on Amazon.
You can protect your Amazon listings on your own. However, retaining an attorney will show Amazon and counterfeiters that you are serious about your protecting and enforcing your brand, and that you are a sophisticated Amazon seller and business-savvy. I can also fulfill Amazon's evidentiary needs when I submit infringement reports to Amazon, and "test buys" may not always be necessary.
If you need help getting a counterfeiter off of your Amazon listing, I can help! I'll need to know your Amazon Seller name, your ASIN(s), and the name of the alleged hijacker. I will look at your ASINs and we'll discuss solutions to clean up those listings sooner rather than later! Don't underestimate the importance and value of your brand!
