Today, Xiao V routinely looked at the Amazon seller forum and found a very special case of account association. At present, the seller has not received an official reply from Amazon. I hope to remind everyone and try to avoid operations similar to him.
The problem he encountered was actually very simple, the account link was closed. The special point is that the two so-called related accounts are actually the same account, and I am actually related to myself.

As shown in the picture, the seller was suspended due to the "Amazon Article 3" account. Our common account ban types are: association, sales of contraband, and code of conduct for illegal sellers. These official emails all mention a little "Amazon Article 3". According to the following content, it can be determined that the seller was banned because of the association.
According to the seller's explanation, he used the name A when he registered in the store, but later found that the name was difficult to read and was not conducive to the development of his own brand, so he changed the display name to B in the back-end account information – seller profile column. . The buyer sees that the seller's name is B, but the name of A is still displayed in the background.
Logically speaking, the appeal will be relatively simple, because according to Amazon’s regulations, if the seller does not have this problem, only relevant information is provided to confirm that there is no association, and then the account operation can be resumed.
Xiao V personally believes that, in addition to regular information, the seller can provide product information under two names, the front-end and the back-end, to prove that the two names are under the same account ID, and the probability of recovering the account is still very high. If you have any solutions, please feel free to put them in the comments.
Of course, this also reminds us sellers to think carefully when doing Amazon, and it is best not to modify their store name to avoid similar incidents.
