The seller account is where Amazon sellers spend most of their time. Here they track ongoing orders, view products being purchased, and make note of the items getting listed on Amazon. The seller account is also where sellers manage inventory, product performance, and control campaign settings. To put it short, the Amazon seller account is the foundation that you need to set up strong without committing random mistakes like the ones listed below.Registering for More Than One Amazon Seller Account
One seller account per Amazon seller is the norm. Having two accounts or more for a single seller is also an Amazon policy violation that can get all your accounts terminated.Pointing Amazon Shoppers to Your Website
Amazon sellers shouldn’t include a URL in their product or seller information because that is another policy violation. Though it can be disadvantageous for retargeting and branding, Amazon is a closed ecosystem. So, to increase traffic to your site, you will have to leverage other selling channels.Copying Another Seller’s Setup
Selling on Amazon is difficult and chances are, your competitors might be violating Amazon policies or may not have an optimized account. Rather than copying someone else (and their mistakes), come up with setup information that aligns with Amazon's best practices.
When it comes to selling on Amazon, product information is the key. You should know that content and format can make or break you. Inaccurate and incorrect Amazon product information can drastically impact profit on Amazon.Including Sales or Coupons in your Product Title
Sellers might find it overly tempting to add a coupon, sale, or store marketing message in their product title. It’s just a way to help their business stand out on Amazon. However, if you do it, it’s clearly an Amazon policy violation that will hurt you in the long run. Avoid title information with ‘Lowest Price’, ‘30% off’, or any other URL and other information that is considered promotional.Using Non-Amazon Sanctioned Categories
Amazon always stresses the point that product categories should match Amazon’s browse tree. Before posting product information, check with Amazon’s inventory file templates to ensure you have everything right.Including Information Amazon Doesn’t Allow in Your Product Title
Amazon product titles have to follow Amazon’s policies: product titles no longer than 100 characters that start with the brand name, if possible. Avoid common product title formatting errors like using HTML code, featuring ALL CAPS, and including symbols.
