How many Amazon accounts can I have?
Well, you can as many as you want. But keep in mind that the more Amazon accounts you have under your belt, the more difficult the process of controlling them. It doesn’t matter if you have 10 Amazon accounts or if you only have two. You need to make sure that everything is really separate. Because if you have 10 Amazon accounts, and one gets linked to the other, you would be facing a hellish situation! If we see Amazon merge accounts, we know that trouble is on the way.
Alright, I’m convinced. How do I make a second Amazon account on Amazon?
Well, the first thing you would do is go to Amazon directly and asked them for permission. That’s your best bet. We know that they’ve been saying no for many years, but they might give your business a chance at setting up multiple accounts. Most Amazon sellers aren’t that lucky, though!
If you do get lucky and Amazon lets you open another account on its platform, you need to know the rules before stepping forward.
If you already have an Amazon account under a business entity, you can open the account under than entity if you wish, but the best option would be to create a completely new business entity for you new Amazon selling account. And by completely new, we really mean it.
This means that none of these two accounts must have any overlaps and everything, everything needs to be separate. The email address on the documents for your new business should not be the same email address which is linked to your old account. You should not use the same banking information on both accounts, including credit cards. You should not even use the same device you use for your current account to open the new account.
Your billing and shipping addresses should not be the same, and you should not even use the new account to sell the exact same products. Don’t even consider opening your new account under a public Wi-Fi network, because you never know who used it before you. If a suspended seller used it, you’d automatically be linked and suspended. Any similar information you share on both your accounts will be problematic. We know, that’s a lot of things you shouldn’t do. But we would much rather you be safe than sorry. If you use the right strategy for setting up your account, A9 won’t be on your tail either.
Once you have everything set up, it’s actually time to open the Amazon account. In order to do this, you need to access the back-end of your current Amazon account, click on “Selling on Amazon,” then enter My Account. There should be an option called Other Account Issues. Click on that, and then do what is seemingly the most difficult part of setting up a new account on Amazon: convincing them!
Write a simple message that would be considered as a valid reason for setting up a separate Amazon account. Make sure you prove to Amazon that you understand all the requirements, and that all the information is going to be separate. Don’t just give them a cookie-cutter reason. Prove to them why you need a second account, talk about your business, tell them about your customer needs, and that the best option for providing good customer service is a new account. Remember, Amazon is customer-friendly, so you can get their attention with that side of things.
If Amazon is convinced, they will let you know and you can set up your new Amazon seller account. Just make sure to log all the conversations with Amazon. After your new account is approved, it might be suspended as a verification check, and you can use those screenshots to show them that you are a legitimate Amazon seller who got approval from Amazon for opening multiple accounts on the platform.
Strike while the iron is hot!
In the wake of COVID-19, with a lot of businesses choosing online sales and Amazon attracting customer after customer, the rules for having multiple Amazon accounts are starting to become more lax, even though there are still a lot of issues and grey areas. Now’s the perfect time to try to get multiple Amazon accounts to give an edge to your business. While it’s true that if you use multiple accounts on Amazon, the more time and resources you will have to spend on managing all of these accounts, selling on multiple accounts can turn out to be not just a profitable, but also an exciting experience, especially if you are an experienced Amazon seller.
