Default Do I really need a stealth?

I see some amazon accounts with thousands of products, and I know a guy who (supposedly) has 2000 products listed and has a pretty good income, all on one account...

1) I'm also not doing amazon arbitrage, and that seems like the biggest reason to open a stealth?

2) And then what if I want to open 'matching' stealths in Europe to my USA ones, without ID this is impossible, so all my USA products wouldnt be able to open EU accounts without legal ID's.

Only you know if you need stealth....

what happens if Amazon suspended your account today?

Wish you luck with whatever avenue you choose to take

I mean this is my question, aren't the biggest percentage of suspensions coming from arbitrage? (reselling products?)

reselling products? I buy and resell products everyday. How else are you to sell on Amazon?

I would say the biggest reason for amazon suspension is competitors followed by metrics and then items sold and at least 50% of items sold issue has to do with competitors.

Could you expand on this please? You mean a competitor buying a product and reporting you? In what way?

Because they don't want you as a competitor.

I realize that, but what are competitors doing to get someone suspended...

You can do 1 account, but it's the "all your eggs in 1 basket" route. If your basket breaks, you are SOL.

We once worked with only 1 account doing over a Mill a year. Then got canned by AZ. It was the most heartbreaking experience ever in my business life.

Then I found this site; wiped away the tears; and started over with stealth.

With AZ's new rules, regulations, and stupidity, stealth is about the only way to carry on without much interruptions when an account goes down.

Best of luck.

Amazon bans accounts for several reasons. Some of the top reasons are:
  • Selling counterfeits
  • Being accused of selling counterfeits
  • Slow shipping
  • Shoddy merchandise
  • Competitor takedowns
  • Inappropriate interactions with their customers
That last one is a BIG ONE! Amazon is all about customer service and customer experience. So, if you cannot deal with your customers in a professional and polite manner, they will get rid of you QUICKLY!

If you want to argue with a customer over a refund, use inappropriate language and be rude, then you won't survive on Amazon. And I mentioned counterfeits twice, because you do not have to actually be selling counterfeits on Amazon to get banned, Amazon can merely SUSPECT that you MIGHT BE selling counterfeits. And a competitor can use a stealth buyer account to buy one of your items and complain to Amazon that it is counterfeit, even if the item is 100% legitimate.

Amazon wants only professional, legitimate sellers. They don't want college kids selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ DVD's to earn money for their next kegger. They don't want sellers who don't know how to deal with people in a polite and professional manner. Basically, they don't want sellers who are going to cause problems for Amazon.

PERFECT way to sum up Amazon.

This also includes cutting into Amazons profit and competing directly with them.

I agree. There are a lot of e-books on the web that are garbage. But Aspkin's guides are worth the small cost. You CAN learn everything you need to know for free on these forums, but you will have a much easier time using the Stealth Book.

Having several stealth accounts is like having a toilet plunger. A complete waste of time for the most part but when that day comes as it always does, you will be be thankful you were prepared.

Always wise to use stealth and have BACKUP accounts going and build them - choice is yours OP
