/r/AmazonSeller update – Account stats image posts are no longer allowed
What we’re finding is that with very few exceptions, Amazon account stats image type posts tend to have one or more of the following problems;
It’s a scammer trying to dupe those who respond, especially those new to this business, pretending to ‘help’ when they’re actually just reeling people in to promote a course, promote an app or service, farm info, or they are a VA / consultant lead generating
Stats shown are manipulated bullshit
Spammers trying to generate quick and easy karma for their accounts
Posters that are attention / karma seeking and not responding to comments. In cases of brag posts which do get responses from the OP, they most often are not eliciting substantive or factual information from the poster
Spamming the same image multiple times in this sub and / or to multiple subreddits (usually for one of the above reasons)
Therefore, account stats image type posts are no longer allowed. Additionally, all other kinds of image posts going forward will be held for review and approval. The sub rules and automod will be updated shortly
Text posts which are made to genuinely discuss account performance are still allowed.
Adding more rules and restrictions is something we’d really rather not do but unfortunately this topic garners a great deal of effort by scammers, not just individuals but also well organized groups and entities, who are looking for any possible vector.
