Q: Amazon closed my account, can reinstate it?

amazon kdp closed my account on 01-12-2023. With 22,000$ three pending months, I have been a publisher with Amazon KDP since 2019 and have worked hard over the past four years to establish myself as one of the best-sellers in the children category. Unfortunately, due to a mistake on my part, I have lost all of my hard work and income.

In 2022, I opened a second Amazon KDP account to separate my business without paying attention to the policy. I published only one book in this account and then forgot about it because I realized there was no sense in separating my business. It was negligent on my part, and I should have contacted Amazon KDP to close the account. Unfortunately, until 2023, Amazon closed my main account that contained all my hard work.

After checking my other email, I found that Amazon KDP contacted me three times to solve an issue related to the book I had published. However, I did not see these emails. There is no party complaint, I want to solve it amicably

A: If your Amazon KDP account was closed due to policy violations or negligence on your part, it may be possible to reinstate your account by contacting Amazon KDP support and explaining your situation. You will need to provide evidence that you understand the policies and have taken steps to correct any mistakes. It's important to be honest and transparent in your communications with Amazon KDP and to take responsibility for any mistakes you may have made. You may also need to provide additional information or documentation as requested by Amazon KDP. Ultimately, the decision to reinstate your account will be up to Amazon KDP, and there is no guarantee that your account will be reinstated.
