ASK THE GURU!
We’re happy to see you taking advantage of what the Guru has to offer! :-)Submit your biggest questions right here:Ask The Guru A QuestionLast Week’s Q & AQuestionMy Brand name is frozen slightly different and I was hijacked and can't get my listing fixed. Amazon does not work with me and removed my listing.... I have tried seller tickets. Any suggestions? AnswerI know it can be frustrating to deal with Seller Support but the name of the game in getting results with support is persistence. Sometimes you can submit the exact same ticket, and then get different results because a different support rep was assigned your case. Another strategy is to actually call into Seller Support and ask for the feeds department. This department is higher level than frontline support and actually handles how listings “feed” into the system. Sometimes it does take several asks to get transferred to this department, but keep at it until you find someone who can help.
