Default Some stealth questions I still have

I've learned a lot from these forums, but I still possess the following questions:

1) Would the same used condition of inventory from a prior suspended account prevent linkage assuming I am using a ratio of 10:1.

2) At what rate can you add inventory to a newer account? (>30 days old, no feedback yet, $2000 in sales). The largest factor for my inventory will be "filler" asin listings of a ratio of 10:1 to prevent linkage.

Assuming I upload 50 asins a day @ 10:1 ratio would be 500 asins per day, or 3500 asins per 7 day week. If I followed the Elmo ratio of 20:1 that would be 7000 asins per 7 day week.

Surly there has be a number / week or rate allowed before Amazon would suspend your account because these are very large numbers.

3) Would the inventory quantity for uploaded "filler" asins matter? ie. an inventory quantity of "0" instead of "1" for my "filler" asin uploads.

4) What if all my "filler" asin inventory for the 20:1 ratio is all merchant fulfilled and all my FBA inventory is the suspended accounts inventory? Would this create linkage?

Any advice / input would be appreciated on these 4 questions!

Question "4" is the most worrisome scenario for me. Current FBA inventory (>5000 lb's, >2000 textbooks) removal from my suspended account is taking longer than expected from Amazon although I am introducing it back in to my stealth account with a ratio of ~15:1. Since my stealth accounts ~15:1 ratio of filler inventory is all merchant-fulfilled (with a very high price so no one buys) and all my suspended inventory is FBA would this create a potential linkage scenario?

Really need some advice here.

Well 20:1 ratio is good and safe I don't think u will get any issue with 10:1
500 per days asin will be too much wait few weeks and slowly build it up

But what about my fourth question, my most important concern:

If all my suspended inventory is FBA and all my filler inventory (at the 20:1 ratio) is merchant-fulfilled, this is a potential link. Am I wrong to think this?

I still don't see the point why you wouldn't want to ship the stuff by yourself and way you won't create more than one account to spread sales so if one gets shut down just go ahead with the next one, this would save you a lot of headaches. Also regarding your items: Do you have to create new asins for them or are they fairly commonly sold on amazon by other sellers?

Personally I have no experience with FBA, just common sense kinda tells me that what you are trying to do might end disastrous: you risk your account AND you inventory. If you don't want to send it yourself, maybe find a service that can do it for you. After you found something like that, create a few accounts and start selling.

The shipping myself part is logistically stressful, im in a small apartment and my inventory has the cubic volume of a minivan. Shipping myself costs considerably more money than FBA and would require extensive inventory managment on my part to track all inventory and additional accounting procedures. In addition, it limits my ability to pursue other activities in my life as I then must be home 365 days / year to ship items which does not work for me.

Im sure there are services to ship for me in Canada, but this is not something i'd like to do. I very much enjoy FBA and it makes life much easier... despite the massive risk.

I currently have 2 stealth accounts with VPN and I am only selling on the one, but am contemplating splitting my inventory among both accounts as you reccomend. I could do FBA for both these accounts.

I do not create new asins for the suspended inventory. They are all books / textbooks on Amazon that anyone can sell on. There are roughly ~1500 unique asins in my suspended account.

No, there are generally 4 - 40+ other sellers. They are all popular textbooks.
