In the relationship between dropshippers and Amazon, the latter wields most of the power.
According to the Wall Street Journal, sellers report a 50% increase in profits once they join the Amazon marketplace. And with a reported 5 million sellers on the platform, Amazon can afford to play fast and loose when doling out account suspensions. Think about it, with every suspension, there are thousands of new dropshippers starting their new career.
Furthermore, with such a vast pool of entrepreneurs, investigating each infraction in detail would be a practice in futility. Particularly since suspensions don’t really dent Amazon’s bottom line.
