Template A: Warning letter to piggybacking seller


We noticed that your company has been selling on our listings. In response to this unauthorized sales behavior, we have drafted the following measures and will implement them step by step.

1. We have contacted Amazon’s account manager, who suggests that we should write complaints to Amazon.

2. In addition, we will use our own means to protect our legitimate rights and interests. We will purchase the products of every maliciously competing seller, first place 10 orders, and then leave honest feedbacks to your account (as sellers, we all know what kind of honest feedbacks will not be deleted by Amazon), we guarantee that we will continue to do this while opening A-to-Z or Chargeback claims and getting the money back.

3. We will also report to Amazon after placing the order that you are selling fake and low quality products. At first, Amazon will issue a warning to you immediately, after multiple reports from us, your account will be suspended directly. Please be assured that we know how to make it happen.

Please stop your piggybacking behavior after reading this email. Thank you.

Template B: For sellers with brand registry to send warning letter

Your registered brand name —- A

( Authorized brand name or registered brand name)

The other party (seller) brand name —- B

( Seller name or brand name you want to file complaint against)


We noticed that “B” used the “A” trademark without the permission or prior written authorization of “A”.

As you know, the unauthorized sale of “A” products is an illegal act and a serious violation of the trademark law. As the trademark owner, we did not sell any “A” brand products to you, nor did we authorize you to sell any “A” brand products. You also violated Amazon’s policy.

We kindly ask you to follow our instructions:

a) Remove your offer from all “A” product listings on amazon.com within 24 hours, and do not list items on Aicok’s product pages in the future.

b) After you delete the involoved product and listings, please send us a confirmation.

If you do not comply with these requirements, we will have no choice but to submit a formal complaint to the Amazon Seller Performance team, which will seriously affect your account performance on Amazon.

Three: Report violation in Amazon brand registration

Brand registration is free. As long as sellers make sure that they own the registered brand, they can register this brand in Amazon Seller Central and Amazon Brand Registry. If you already have a brand registered with Amazon, and you still cannot remove the piggybacker after sending the warning letter, you can report it through Amazon brand registry to protect your legitimate rights and interests.

Web address to file complaint: https://www.amazon.com/report/infringement

Five: Find a service provider to help you quickly remove the piggybacker

Since cross-border e-commerce has become more and more popular, there are constant disputes between sellers and piggybackers, and many Amazon service providers have also launched piggybacker removal services.

Many of these service providers were sellers themselves, and they have rich experience in piggybacking and counter-piggybacking. The slogan of these service providers is “We won’t charge you until it is done”. Sellers who have no time or experience to fight with piggybackers can consider looking for a professional service provider to help.

However, the capabilities of these service providers are not all equal. It is always necessary to be careful when choosing which one to work with, and pay attention to the service providers’ reputation and experience.
