Sellers who don't comply with Amazon's policies could have actions taken against their account, which include listing cancellations, suspended or forfeited payments or being banned from selling on the site.

Amazon's new rule comes after mystery packages of seeds had been sent to households in the U.S. with postmarks from China.
