How to Open a New Seller Central Account After Suspension

What do I do if My Account is Suspended Permanently?

Every Successful Amazon Seller dreads being suspended. While there are a wide variety of ways to appeal a suspension, there are times that a seller simply cannot get the account reinstated. This article and video gives suggestions, ideas, and tricks to set up a new Amazon selling account without flagging Amazon. 

First Idea:

  1. Open a New Account. 
  2. Open a new LLC for your business. This LLC can be a subsidiary of your existing business. For example, if business 1 is suspended by Amazon, you can create business 2 which can be owned by business 1 and still sell on Amazon. 
  3. A unique bank account, credit card, e-mail, phone number, and tax information is needed.  A Google Voice number could be used if you do not want to create a new cell phone number. 
  4. Make sure you are not using the same static IP address associated with the suspended account. If all these things check out, you should not run into any issues with the new account.

Second Idea:

  1. Purchase an existing Amazon selling account. 
  2. There are various platforms where you can purchase existing seller accounts. 
  3. This option can be very expensive. Going through a broker, purchasing the business and inventory can cost upwards of $200,000. This would not be a great fit for many users, but we like to include it as an option on the table. 
  4. We are suggesting to buy an existing business with verifiable tax infrastructure for this idea. 

Third Idea: 

  1. Write jeff@amazon.com and explain the situation.
  2. Average wait time is 45 days.
  3. This rarely works, but we have seen it succeed on occasion. 

Conclusion: 

There are no guarantees when an account is suspended, however, the three ideas above can work when applied correctly with a little bit of luck on your side! As always if you need any help with your Amazon account we are here to help! Book a consulting call with MyAmazonGuy today! 

I was fortunate to be part of MAG's first batch of its Advertising Internship Program. The timing was perfect for me as I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about Amazon PPC and at the same time to have hands-on training to work on accounts.  

 

When I started my internship, I listed down the things I wanted to learn. And I am happy to say that I've ticked all the boxes! My most favorite was "Optimization Using Bulk Files”. Bulk files and I, we did not get along at first, it was so scary seeing all those data! But I had a great mentor who guided me along the way. He patiently taught me step by step on how to process the data. He was very enthusiastic in answering all of my questions. He supported me until I gained the confidence in uploading my first, second, third (and so on) bulk uploads. 

 

The biggest advantage in working with MAG (and I must say one thing that I always look forward to every week) is its Weekly Ads Training. Every week, we discuss various topics about PPC. Interns/Ads Specialists/Ads Managers, we all share knowledge, information, and updates about PPC. During our discussions, we exchange ideas and feedback. It became an avenue not just to learn a skill, but also to clear any vague or ambiguous PPC topics. 

 

For me, the biggest disadvantage is the work schedule. As an Intern, I have to follow EST timing. The time difference from my location was only 8 hours, but being a morning person, I really struggled to keep myself awake. But if you are a night owl, then this will not be a problem for you.

 

So if you are considering joining the MAG Advertising Internship Program, my advice to you is to take action - APPLY NOW! The knowledge that you will gain and the skill that you will develop from this program will be invaluable. And who knows? From being an Intern, you might be the next one to be promoted as Jr. Ads Specialist!
