    Hello guys like the title says need some advice from you experienced users on wether or not I should call them to increase my limits.
    I started Amazon dropshipping on the 22nd of October and it's going very well. I had my limits increased to 330 items or £8600.
    Anyway I've already reached my limit in the first week of it being increased. Have been selling anywhere from 15 to 40 items a day.
    Update on my account to date I have 1 negative feedback from a user who checked Amazon. The rest positive.
    So what do you guys/ladies advise? Should I call ?

    Cheers any help is much appreciated.

    Yes you should call them. It's very simple, enter their phone number into your phone and press ring...

    If you want your limits raised you can only do this once every 30 days, if your last limits increase was in this period you will be refused but try anyway. They are quite good.

    They will ask you:
    1. What you sell
    2. How much stock you carry (just lie)
    3. How many people work for you (again, lie)
    4. They may need a VAT number as it looks like you will pass the VAT thresh hold
    5. They may ask for a Ltd company number

    Feedback must be above 98% from memory, and your defect rate must be under 5%

    Otherwise, you should be good to go.

    Everything Ste Hughes said is pretty accurate (though they've never asked me a few of those questions), but you can actually get away with calling 25 days after your previous limit increase if you wish. The representatives in the Limits department have the discretion to increase your limits up to 5 days before the 30 day period is over.
