The Top 3 Killer Tips for Amazon Sellers Dealing w/ Related Account Suspensions – WIN REINSTATEMENT
Can I have multiple Amazon seller accounts? Is it illegal to have multiple Amazon accounts? Today’s video, I’m going to be talking to you about Ashley’s top three tips for Amazon sellers. And at the end, we’re going to focus specifically on how to win reinstatement when you get nailed with related accounts.
Okay. So Ashley is one of our awesome paralegals. She’s been with us for years. She’s helped hundreds of sellers get their accounts reinstated and probably thousands of listings all on her own. And here’s what she talks about.
Number one, she recommends that you do not create more than one account. But if you do, here are some tips….
One, make sure you have separate business entities. Number two, make sure you have separate bank accounts. And Ashley, I will add to that, that sellers, if they’re going to do this, should not just have separate bank accounts, but separate banks.
Make sure you’re selling different products from account to account. And also, we are seeing a rise in the number of related account suspensions, where you have three, four, or five accounts. So it’s not the real newbie who’s opened up his or her second account, and it’s certainly not the Uber experienced seller with dozens or hundreds of accounts. So as you expand your business, as you grow, if you violate the contract with Amazon by opening related accounts, be really careful.
Number two, Ashley wants you to be aware that if you use services to get reviews, you are putting your account at significant risk.
Number three, whatever communication you have with Amazon, whatever it is, if it’s email, save it.
If it is verbal, if you’re actually calling seller support, as soon as you hang up the line, send an email back to Amazon, thank the person, even though you don’t really have their email address, send it to seller support thanking whoever it was who gave you whatever advice you received so that you can document your interaction with Amazon.
