Can you Delete Your Amazon Seller Account?

April 25, 2022

That’s a great question! And before we answer that question, maybe a better question should be WHY do you want to deactivate or delete your Amazon Seller account?

Are Sales Low? 

Can’t justify the monthly $39.99 seller’s fee? Maybe you’re better off downgrading from a Professional to a Personal account. You’ll pay $0.99 per transaction, which may help with budgeting. Maybe you want to downgrade instead? Here’s how:

  • In the Manage section on the left, click Manage.
  • On the My Services page, select Downgrade
  • Click Confirm Selling Plan Change to agree to the conditions and change your plan.

Overwhelmed with fulfilling orders? 

If you haven’t considered moving to an FBA (fulfilled by Amazon) model, maybe now’s the time. While you will pay more in storage and fulfillment fees, there is substantial peace of mind knowing orders and returns are processed quickly.

Need a temporary break? 

Maybe you should put your store on “vacation mode”. Here’s how:

  • Login to your seller central account.
  • Hover over Settings and then click on Account Info.
  • Click on Going on holiday?
  • Click Active option and then click on Save option.

Want to diversify? 

Maybe it’s time to open up your own website and sell directly to customers. Although building up a large customer base on your own e-commerce site may take time, it’s always a great idea to have your products available on “properties” you own – not just marketplaces.

Your Account Has Value!

Don’t close your account! It may have value and the team at AIA may be interested in buying your Amazon Seller Account! Before you go through the steps to delete your account, schedule a time to meet with our sales manager at AIA Assets. We offer a no-obligation account audit to determine the value of your account.

Are you ready to delete your Amazon seller account? Here’s how:

  3. You will come across a prompt that asks you to select a reason for closing the account in the drown-down menu provided.
  4. Click on the box that says “Yes, I want to permanently close my Amazon account and delete my data,” then click on Close My Account

Unless you’re sure about completely shutting down your seller account, you have some temporary options before you make the permanent (and irrevocable) decision to close your account. If your seller account is at risk, or you’re having challenges with the health of your Amazon seller’s account, please reach out to the suspension experts at Axelligence.
