"Amazon".  Sounds like a bunch of heathens to me.  Primitives in need of some serious Jesusing.

Or you know, Amazon quality control procedures that flag sellers whose sales rapidly increase in a short period of time. I understand why they have a policy like this, but I don't understand why they wouldn't have some kind of exemption for sellers with robust single season business.

Sounds like their seasonality algorithm sucks ass.

Either that or they just like holding onto people's money.  I know I sure do.

That sounds like an awesome gag gift for a white elephant exchange that's heavy on Blue Team fans, but way too expensive for that.

Step 1. Set up an Amazon store front
Step 2. Aggressively market something that many people want at a price that is unbelievably low
Step 3. Get tons of orders, take the money and skip town

The watch word for all online marketplaces is consistency. More than a few percent change from month to month is a red flag. For every person that has a seasonal business or a new hot product, there are many more trying to get rich quick at the expense of the gullible.

/I do think a high and long-established seller rating should factor into the process as suggested in TFA.

Well im sure the excuse will be something like: "Our machines told us to do it, so  its not our fault!"

This is the kind of thing that happens when you try to be 100% automation. There is no such thing as 'judgement calls' anymore

Oh, but I want my own personal Jesustoast.
