Selling privileges removed on new account, they want a copy of “business license”, receipts, etc but I am just an individual? – Amazon sellers’ resources

I signed up for an Amazon seller account recently and I got this e-mail after listing a couple items:

What should I do about "business license"? I am just an individual selling unwanted goods I've purchased during my life. Some of them are over a decade old, so I don't have the receipt. Others, such as an iPad I'm trying to sell, don't have a receipt because I bought it used on Craigslist. Any ideas? I don't really have any "suppliers". I'm really trying to avoid getting suspended as I've heard it's hard to get back in once that happens. Any help is much appreciated.
