I believe that as an Amazon seller, the IP anti-association of the account has always been an issue worthy of our attention. Especially in recent years, the accounts of a large number of novice sellers and even some experienced e-commerce workers are often blocked for no reason. In the final analysis, it is because the accounts have not taken measures to prevent IP association.
So how does Amazon IP prevent association, and what method can help us solve it at one time, I will explain it to you below.
What is an association?
The association we are talking about here mainly refers to the account association problem that has recently become popular in cross-border e-commerce forums.
When cross-border e-commerce was still a blue ocean industry in China, the first group of people who entered the industry registered a large number of accounts on e-commerce or social platforms such as Amazon , shopee , and Facebook , and then carried out a series of operations through raising accounts. Such as: advertising optimization , product evaluation and online alliance offers , CPA , Muscle batch delivery .
However, these operations are regarded as violations by major e-commerce platforms. They will use the IP addresses of the merchants to log in to the accounts , track and compare whether there are accounts with the same IP address, and then associate them to block them.
How to solve the association problem?
The full name of VPS is Virtual Private Server , and the Chinese name is virtual private server. We can isolate multiple server environments on physical servers through these virtual servers. The use of vps for anti-association is based on this principle.
Because when we are in a virtual online world, we cannot know the appearance, age, and gender of other people. All we can know is the IP address and account cookie of the other party. The account association mechanism of major e-commerce platforms such as Amazon is This is the basis for judgment.
Therefore, it was first discovered that VPS can simulate different IP addresses in the virtual network , thereby isolating the IP environment of each account , so as to avoid the IP association mechanism of each e-commerce platform
(2) Fingerprint browser
The topic of this article is Amazon's IP anti-association, but now Amazon's crackdown on multiple accounts is not limited to IP association technology, but uses the latest browser fingerprint tracking technology.
What is browser fingerprinting? In fact, like our fingerprints, they are unique, including: IP address, cookies cache, device storage, time zone, UA and other information. Major e-commerce platforms use browser fingerprints to determine the identity of each account. When When we open multiple accounts and it is found that the fingerprints are the same, we will face the risk of being banned.
The fingerprint browser, it is not a browser used to visit other sites in our traditional definition, it is more like a means to counter browser fingerprint tracking. For example , adspower fingerprint browser, it can simulate different browser fingerprint information when multiple accounts surf the Internet, so that the platform cannot associate our accounts together through browser fingerprints.
In general, if we want to avoid the IP association of the Amazon platform, VPS and fingerprint browsers are actually similar, but we must beware of the emerging browser fingerprint tracking technology, and more and more merchants' accounts are blocked because of this. So we'd better choose a fingerprint browser.
