Cool How safe is it to sell a ton($10k+) on an AMZ stealth through FBM or FBA?

TL;DR: How safe is it to sell a ton of product from the start either with FBM or FBA on a stealth account with authentic products? I have a lot of inventory I want to sell. I'm worried about Amazon holding money if a ton gets sold and not depositing it to my checking account on file.

I currently have 4 stealth amazon accounts. 1 older(1 month) and 3 newer I understand slowly increasing sales on a stealth month($750) to month($1500) and having good feedback on AMZ is the safe way to maintain an account. But I remember reading that some people actually utilize stealth account as a burner to sell a ton of product with the understanding that the account will most likely get suspended or closed due to high flux of money on a new seller account(essentially not mimicing your average amazon seller) as well as causing the account to get verified, but then wait a period of time for Amazon to release the money such as 90 days and just let that account go.

I'm interested in doing this but I'm slightly worried having potentially 50K in a stealth account floating at amazon... will for sure get this money to deposit?? Given all my products are legit and having the chance of a complaint of customer, like regular customers do from time to time but nothing major like unauthentic products or no ship...but being completely legit.

I also would to like to know thoughts on doing FBA with a stealth?

Thanks!

Heavy volume selling isn't an issue normally

The problems happen if you don't have invoices to back up the sales or poor seller metrics

If you're in tip top shape with invoices ready, happy customers, you should be fine

Spreading sales is smart between multiple shops

if you want to sell 10k$+ you HAVE to use more than 10 accs. If AMZ\EB will block 2 accs from 4 this is epic fail, if 10 from 100 this is statistic.

I have sold almost 100k and the Amazon account is approx 6 months old. We get approx $18k a month deposited.

AS others have mentioned, as long as your products are legitimate and you can prove it
using amazon is fine in that volume.

I'm assuming the account is also fully verified

We have invoices to back up our products, on our other accounts that are more seasoned we have good customer feed back aside from the few customers that have confused MFG(manufacturing date) with the EXP(Expiration). I understand spreading the sales would be a ideal, but if we would like to sell a ton of 5 particular products on each stealth could this cause possible linking suspension? Or should we do this with our 5 major ones and make a ratio for example of 1:5 products of 1 thats similar and 5 that are random(unique to each account) to kind of deter similarities.

I think you always run the risk of Amazon shutting you down and permanently withholding all proceeds from sales prior to a scheduled disbursement.

It's way safer to have about 10 extra accounts and spread you items between them, don't bet on Amazon, they're a real F***, so stay safe and have more accounts.
