      Having several Amazon seller accounts could have detrimental effects because it is against Amazon’s policies to have numerous accounts without the necessary authorization. Having multiple Amazon seller accounts could have the following effects:
      Account Suspension or Termination: If it is determined that a seller has multiple accounts that are not legitimately authorized, Amazon has the authority to suspend or delete any seller accounts associated with that seller. This may result in loss of access to all accounts, including any active listings, goods, and cash.

      Loss of Listings and Inventory: Amazon has the right to deactivate or remove any Listings and Inventory linked to suspended or closed seller accounts. This could result in lost sales and potential revenue.

      Amazon may put any amount of money on hold.

      As you mentioned they suspended the old account mentioning that you violated the policy, if you want to avoid such make sure you use different credentials, different IP address, & different brand name style, to depict that these are two different brand from two different sellers, another thing you can do is that you can simply register another brand under same account, this way you won’t have to go through the issue of policy violation.

      when you have multiple Amazon seller accounts, amazon has very strict rules about it. If he finds out that you violate his policy eg you used one email address for multiple seller accounts. then they suspend your account which causes lower sales. your account’s health is automatically dropped.

      Amazon has very severe guidelines when it comes to having numerous seller accounts. If he discovers that you’ve broken one of his rules, like using the same email address for many seller accounts. then your account is suspended, which results in reduced sales. The health of your account is immediately decreased.

      Consequences include: If Amazon determines that a seller has violated its policies by having multiple accounts or using them to manipulate sales data, all accounts associated with that seller may be suspended or terminated.
      To avoid account suspension or termination, it’s important to follow Amazon’s policies and guidelines regarding multiple accounts. Register each account with unique email addresses, business entities, and bank accounts. Monitor key performance metrics and ensure that each account is performing well.

      Having multiple Amazon seller accounts without Amazon’s permission is against their policy and can lead to consequences such as account suspension or termination.

      Amazon’s policy states that sellers can have only one seller account, and if you need to open additional accounts for legitimate business reasons, you must first seek permission from Amazon.

      If Amazon discovers that you have multiple accounts without permission, they may suspend or terminate all of your accounts, withhold any funds in your accounts, and may even take legal action against you. This can also harm your reputation as a seller and make it difficult to do business on the platform in the future.

      It’s important to follow Amazon’s policies and guidelines to avoid any negative consequences and maintain a successful selling experience on their platform.

      If you need to open multiple accounts, seek prior approval from Amazon and provide valid and verifiable information. If you are suspended or terminated, respond promptly and provide any necessary information or documentation to resolve the issue.
