100 Amazon Accounts, One Email: How To Do It

Going back to the topic of doing things correctly, ot is imperative to familiarize yourself with Amazon Seller Central’s User Permissions

It is a valuable feature that provides a structured way to grant varying levels of access to authorized individuals. 

Who can manage Amazon Seller Central user permissions?

Only professional sellers can. They can switch between individual and professional selling plans.

Whom can you authorize?

Grant user permissions to co-owners, employees, contractors, etc.

Primary/secondary user roles:

  • Primary user (account admin): Highest access, including managing user permissions.
  • Secondary user: Can “view and edit” permissions if assigned as an admin by the primary user.

The single email address you will use to manage multiple Amazon accounts must be configured for the secondary user

When appropriately configured, it allows account holders to assign distinct access levels to designated individuals, facilitating collaboration and operational efficiency.

Always Remember

Never add admin email of one Seller Central account to another

One Email For Multiple Amazon Accounts OTP Management: 1Password

Here at My Amazon Guy, our current OTP management tool is 1Password. While Amazon agencies are free toi choose any tool and software they like, here are some key insights about 1Password that you might want to consider:

Security Measures:

  • Simplifies account security during employee turnover by removing access without notifying others.
  • Addresses the challenge of employees saving QR codes.

Scaling with Agency Growth:

  • Suitable for boutique agencies (up to 40 accounts) and scalable to larger agencies.
  • Provides user controls, mechanisms, and vaults essential for managing a scaled agency.

Password Refresh and Internal Stress:

  • Highlights the stress caused by frequent password updates in large agencies.
  • Its notification-free password changes ease the internal stress associated with employee turnovers.

Effectively Managing Multiple Amazon Accounts

Beyond managing email and OTP, an Amazon agency’s brand management for clients encompasses strategic brand registry, secure access, and smooth account transitions. Upholding brand integrity on Amazon requires a comprehensive approach. Legitimate management of multiple Amazon accounts is allowed within guidelines, but misuse, like selling the same items across accounts, can lead to a negative reputation.

Getting Started:

  • Separate business entities, tax structures, banking, credit cards, and email domains for each account.
  • Example scenario: Partial ownership in two businesses with different stakeholders.
  • Important: Avoid selling the same or similar brands across multiple accounts.

Opening a Second Account:

Preferred Method: Warm Introduction

  • Utilize direct ties to Amazon’s sales team for a strategic account.
  • Request a seller invite for the new business with unique infrastructure.

Alternative Method: Direct Application

  • Open a new seller account through Seller Central.
  • No need for multiple IP addresses or VPN; Amazon is aware of businesses operating from the same location.
  • Caution: Use different credit cards and bank accounts to avoid linking accounts.

Managing Multiple Accounts:

Managing hundreds of Amazon Seller accounts for an agency requires meticulous organization, deep knowledge of Amazon policies, and robust security measures. Here are some crucial things to consider:

Compliance and Policy:

  • Prioritize adherence to Amazon’s Terms of Service and Seller Central policies. Ignorance is not an excuse, so stay updated on the latest rules and regulations.
  • Separate each account clearly. Maintain distinct email addresses, bank accounts, tax information, and physical addresses (if applicable) for every account. Avoid commingling funds or resources.
  • Use sub-users for client access control. Granular permissions prevent unauthorized activity and minimize risk of policy violations.
  • Obtain Amazon’s approval before opening new accounts. Justify each account with a legitimate business need.

Security and Scalability:

  • Invest in secure password management tools. OnePassword or LastPass can eliminate shared logins and simplify access management for hundreds of accounts.
  • Consider employing burner phones for initial account creation. This further strengthens separation and reduces potential linking between accounts.
  • Develop a system for managing multiple email addresses. As your client base grows, use dedicated emails for batches of accounts to ensure smooth administration.
  • Implement automation wherever possible. Use tools and scripts to automate routine tasks like reporting, performance monitoring, and inventory management. This saves time and reduces human error.

Efficiency and Performance:

  • Segment accounts based on needs and performance. Tailor strategies and optimize campaigns for each group to maximize ROI.
  • Regularly monitor account health and performance metrics. Identify potential issues early and take corrective action.
  • Invest in data analytics tools. Utilize insights to understand customer behavior, optimize product listings, and make informed business decisions.
  • Maintain open communication with clients. Provide regular updates, reports, and performance analyses to build trust and transparency.

Additional Considerations:

  • Build a team with diverse expertise. You’ll need experts in Amazon policies, account management, advertising, data analysis, and customer service.
  • Establish robust data security protocols. Protect sensitive client information and prevent unauthorized access.
  • Stay up-to-date on industry trends and best practices. Continuously adapt your strategies and technologies to remain competitive.

Kristen Lasch

Kristen Lasch

BRAND DIRECTOR

Kristen started her professional work on Amazon in 2018 as a professional seller and project-based Account Manager. She has ample knowledge of both Seller Central and Vendor Central. With a degree in Art & Design, Kristen has a passion for problem-solving and thinking outside the box. She loves to help grow accounts by unraveling underlying issues, organizing catalogs, and providing creative branding ideas. With an extensive background in customer experience, she is able to really dive into the mind of a customer regarding listing optimizations and how to market products appropriately. In her free time, Kristen enjoys spending time with her family and working on growing their own private label account.

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!
