A question about seller rankings on a listing – Amazon sellers’ resources

I'm going to be vague just because I don't really want a direct connection between my reddit account and my Amazon account. So, apologies for that – feel free to ask questions if it helps clarify anything.

We publish a certain niche type of book. We have hundreds of titles and have sold them for decades. Our books are already all on Amazon, listed by a few of our resellers. We had sold through Amazon in the past but eventually stopped doing so (this was years ago). Recently, we got back on board.

Some of our resellers sell our books slightly discounted to undercut each other (this is fine – we don't ask our resellers to sell at full retail price if they don't want to). However, we sell our books at full retail and won't discount them. But, our resellers are (as of now) charging a higher shipping price on Amazon, so our price (full retail plus our shipping) is lower than their price (discounted retail plus higher shipping).

No one seems to be Buy Box eligible and none of us use FBA (as far as I can tell), but when I click through to the available sellers, we're listed below the other sellers even though our total all-in price is better. I assume this is because they have established ratings on Amazon while we do not, although I suppose it's possible because their "price" is lower (even though it isn't when you account for shipping).

My main question is – are there any obvious suggestions to rank higher in the seller listings? And to maybe more quickly become buy box eligible (it's my understanding that this part may take a long time)? Lowering the price below full retail is not an option (we'd rather just do no business on Amazon) and as of now, using FBA won't be an easy argument for me to make internally (although it's one I've already tried making and would be open to trying again and again over time if that's the real answer here). We're also not going to do anything like discouraging the resellers from selling on Amazon. Sorry if I've limited the available answers too much.

Thanks for any help!

My original documentary film removed over “Authenticity.” – Amazon sellers’ resources

I am the producer, writer, and appear in an independent documentary film. I own all the rights. I've been selling it as a DVD via Amazon FBA since 2009. My seller account was in great shape. Yesterday Seller Performance removed the film over authenticity violations. They asked for all my supplier receipts and information. I AM the "supplier." I am the distributor. I sent them my invoices from the professional DVD manufacturer that I use to have them pressed and packaged. They ruled against me. This is beyond crazy. They want me to prove a negative. All they have to do is look up the film's producer and distributor and they will find me and my little production company. They say there is no more appeal process – decision is final. I'm perplexed. Is there any more I can do? If not how can I get the remaining 678 copies they have in FBA warehouses returned to me?

Question about 2 account rule per household – Amazon sellers’ resources

My dad runs a pretty sizable Amazon store. Me, not knowing the rules, decided to open up an amazon seller account to see what I could sell. The issue is: we have the same address. I was only told this after and I'm in a bit of a panic. I immediately closed my seller account, even though I was charged the $39.99. I closed the account about 2 hours after opening it. After searching online a bit, I am now very scared that my dads account will be suspended or closed completely. Any advice on how to proceed?
