If login credentials for an Amazon seller account are shared with someone other than account owner and OTP code is provided to them, and if the account holder and the individual having the login credentials are in different countries, and they all log in on the same day, what problems can arise?
Sharing login credentials for an Amazon seller account is a violation of Amazon’s terms of service and can lead to several problems:
Account Suspension, Geographical Restrictions, Security Risks, etc
It’s essential to follow Amazon’s terms of service and maintain the security and integrity of your seller account to avoid these potential problems.
While many sellers are able to do this without issues, what you described can cause your account to get suspended, if you are at the same time experiencing anything else deemed to be suspicious by Amazon - such as listing a high volume of listings or otherwise expensive risky products from major brands.
Amazon generally doesn’t like VAs or anything that indicates that the seller is outsourcing the management of his own account to someone on the other side of the planet with very little accountability.
Occasionally sharing OTP codes with another person should not get you into too much trouble. When we’re out of town, and our warehouse manager is in charge, we do the same thing.
If this is regular occurrence and/or part of your business plan, you can provide access to others, such as employees, co-owners, or contractors, by setting your user permissions.
Sign up for a VPN service with a dedicated IP and share it with people who login. This usually costs about $5 per month.
