How to Unlock Your Amazon Account

Is your Amazon account locked? Don’t panic. There are common reasons this might happen. Here, we’ll help you identify why and provide you with the steps to resolve the issue.  Reasons Your Account Has Been Locked There are 5 main reasons as to why your amazon account is locked, they include: 1. Failed Credit Card Verification When you create a new Amazon account and add a credit card, the first thing Amazon will verify is the billing address- ensuring that it matches the default address you linked with the account. If not, Amazon will be quick to lock your account to prevent potential fraud. 2. Suspicious Gift Card Activity To comply with various money laundering regulations, Amazon treats gift cards like cash. So if you’re using an unusually large amount of Amazon gift cards to do your shopping, it can be a red flag for Amazon and may result in your account being locked.  Your account will also be immediately suspended if you open a Prime account and the first thing you try to do is to buy a gift card. 3. The Use of Multiple IP Addresses If you’re using your Amazon account from multiple locations around the world, it’s likely Amazon will lock your account, out of suspicions of hacking. For example; if you open an account in Canada, but begin purchasing a substantial amount of products through an IP address that’s located in England, Amazon might think that someone in England hacked your account and will lock it to prevent further damage. 4. A Lot of Returns Amazon is stringent when it comes to an above-average volume of returns. So if you’re looking to return a substantial amount of items you purchased from Amazon in a short period of time, your account may incur suspension because of it. 5. A High Volume of Orders If you’re consistently buying a large number of items, particularly the same ones and on a new account, Amazon may lock your account to prevent potential reselling of products. If you do need to purchase the same items recurringly, it is suggested that you keep your total to less than $250 per day.
