Amazon as a very strict set of rules and regulations that you need to follow.

You must take the customers to feedback seriously, as Amazon takes it highly into consideration. A happy customer, a happier boss.
The leading errors, a new Amazon account holder can make are explained below.
1- One seller, One account
People often try to be clever and try to set up more than one account. This usually happens after suspension or trying to achieve augmented profits. Greediness will get you kicked out form Amazon, better not get your new Amazon account snatched before.
2- Opting for the wrong selling account.
You must see which type aligns best with your retail needs.
3- Mimicking another seller
Constantly audit and review your account to check if you are copying ‘content’ from another account. Originality will be highly appreciated.
4- Redirecting them to your portal
Never mention the URL in the seller information when setting up your new Amazon account. You will be violating Amazon’s policy.
5- Improper Listing
You should list your products wisely otherwise you will end up losing profit.
6- Don’t try generosity early.
Including coupons, discounts, lowered price and your own URL in the title information will violate Amazon policy. Everyone wants their product to stand out, but if this mistake is made, Amazon will negate any information that isn’t related to product details.
7- Abiding by Amazon’s product list.
Whilst list your products, make sure they align with the categories Amazon provides its customers with. To review correct information formatting, go to Amazon’s inventory file templates.
8- Shipping details
Including expensive shipping or late shipments to your new Amazon account will not be tolerated by Amazon as it prioritizes customer services.
9- Customer feedback.
Starting a business with a new Amazon Account can be overwhelming. Do not get tempted in purchasing positive feedback. Rather than cheating, provide the customers with a platform to review your products. You will save money too. If they don’t like your product or found it faulty. NEVER blame the customer for false feedback. You will unleash Amazon’s wrath if you pick a fight with the buyer.
