Default Amazon Uk might be over.

I created an Amazon account as I usually do. However the layout now has completely changed.

You can no longer register as a business without a company registration number or a sole trader without a UTR.

I then registered as a individual seller (now called private seller) I thought all was okay, but now Amazon ask for ID and you have to register a deposit account straight away.

Also there is big yellow header at the top of the page saying my "information is still being validated and amazon will contact me if they need further information"

This is bad news for stealth accounts.

I opened one today. But with real details. Right now they are validated the account.

The problem is, the business seller UTR number.
Amazon are looking for businesses.

Hi

What selling plan did you choose Individual or professional..?

If you choose professional, what type of seller did you say you was i.e. private or sole trader etc.

And lastly did you have to provided any further documentation to verify yourself..?

It's gonna become very difficult then. Every seller can't get UTR becAuse it applies on them sellers who have turn over more than 70k. Let's wait and see what happens. Also need to concentrate more on running accounts unless experts find a way around.

Stealth takes its hits but will continue to push through - clever people will come up with different approaches

Have you tried setting up an account in France,Germany,Spain or Italy. Maybe these setting are not in place these. Then you sell on the UK as normal. Also if you are an oversea's seller are amazon still asking for these details, or is it just a UK seller???

Yes it seems UK, FR,IT,ES,and DE are all affected.

If you want to sell under the professional selling plan it looks like you will have to use real details and select the private seller setting to avoid amazon asking for UTR, HMRC or company registration. By using real details Amazon should be able to verify you automatically without asking for further information. Adversely you could use stealth info and provide docs and hope for the best.

After some further research (From a reliable source) I gather that if you create an account under the individual selling plan you can avoid all of this hassle. However you can only sell 30 items per a month and you will have a velocity limit of 1500. I cant tell if this includes all 5 European platforms or not.

Please can everyone respect the Amazon platform as your actions could affect everyone else trying to sell on the platform.

My main selling platform is amazon but now I'm thinking to sell more on ebay which is more safe and reliable option at the moment.
Now need to find the products which I can sell there. :(

That's a VAT registration number you're thinking of. Every single UK taxpayer has a UTR if they have ever had to do self-assessment (randomly selected or voluntary).
