Default New stealth account dilemma.😐

Hello everyone.

So my account got suspended for good and I decided to have a new stealth account made by a seller on this forum. Everything is awesome on the account so far.

Now for my dilemma. I have read a lot about using old inventory from a suspended account on here. But it turns out my old brand (which I have over 40-50k worth of bags, labels and product in that brand) seems to have been brand restricted and needs approval to sell it.

Now I know that I need to keep the ratio at least 5:1. And my address on the new stealth account is states away from my old account. So...

So should I ask for brand approval now to sell on my old listings

Or should I just make new listings with the same brand in the title and start to get reviews all over again? New listing new asin new skus.

Thank you and I appreciate your help!

My opinion is to avoid reselling old products as its riskier than selling new ones

With that said, I still sell old products at a ratio of 20:1. The greater the ratio the better.

Its always best to make new listings to avoid any possible links to your old stores

Best of luck buddy

Thanks elmo.

So you're saying I shouldn't get brand approval to sell on old listings then?

brand approval is definitely fine. what I'm saying is try to avoid listing the same products on the same listing pages you had before

Instead create new listing pages if possible, or avoid selling the same items all together.

But if you have inventory to sell them then you gotta do what you gotta do. Just try to keep the ratio as high as possible, follow proper stealth routine, and hope for the best!

Yeah I'm just scared they will link me if I do brand approval. I was planning to sell the same products but change up the listings. Like before I had listings with one flavor with variations of sizes. Now I think I'll just do it with one listing of a certain size with variations of flavors.

Just got to get reviews all over again blah.

So if I list 20:1 would the brand approval flag me?

That sounds good buddy. 20:1 is relative, it could be 100:1 or 5:1 and be fine or still get suspended

There are no guarantees when it comes to Amazon. Just follow proper stealth routine and keep the ratio as high as possible and hope for the best

Most of the time you'll be fine

Oh one last question. Should I wait a few months before I apply for brand approval of my old brand?

Is this a big brand or is this your own brand?

I have the same problem.

So how do you solve it at the end?

Also how do you deal with the inventories?

I was planning to remove back to the warehouse relabel and send it back to the old listing using the new account, but base on the ghost guide the address cannot be the same, how did you solve this?

Any information would be great.
