I recently added a new bank account through user permission (one of my workers), after that my account was deactivated and I was asked to provide a utility bill with name and address same as in seller central. Does this mean it needs to be same as my legal entity or also in my bank account holder name? Can I change the deposit method while being suspended? (It is open for me to do)?

Recently i read a shocking little Amazon FBA newspaper sidebar, of a new regulation that claims Amazon can now, if it notices your business becoming lucrative, buy out your business, for a non-negotiable price (no more than $10000). If this is real, one would have to be nuts to build a business on Amazon. I can find no references to it anywhere else. Is this more 'fake news'??? -A canadian who was planning to becoming a FBA seller.

UK sellers on how do you handle returns ?

We have been asked several times to list on The major problem we have is their free returns policy. ie you pay for the return of the item no matter what the reason. We have minimal (less than 0.5%) returns through ebay and our website to the USA and Canada, and our average cost price is less than £10 so a 'free' return to the UK would lose us more money, How do other UK sellers manage this ?
