Set user permissions

When you first set up your Seller Central account on Amazon, only you can access the account tools and features. However, you might want to provide access to others who are involved in the management of your business. For example, you might want a co-owner or employee to manage inventory or handle shipping confirmations. You can add users or adjust user permissions with the User Permissions feature.

Invitation process

Seller Central uses an invitation model to manage user accounts. Firstly, you, as the account manager or administrator, send an email or SMS to other users, inviting them to create an account on Seller Central. Next, you need to configure the permissions for each user.

By inviting users into the system and then configuring their permissions, you are assured that the appropriate user accounts are linked to the right owners and that the correct permissions apply to the intended users. The invitation model also helps you to fully manage user accounts without assistance from Amazon Seller Support.

Follow these steps to establish accounts for additional users:

Step 1: The account manager (you) invites new users
  1. In the Settings menu, click User Permissions.
  2. Enter the contact information of someone you would like to send an invitation to, and click Send invitation. Do this for all of the people you want to invite.
Step 2: The new user accepts the invitation
  1. The person follows the link in the invitation. He or she will be asked to sign in or create an Amazon account.
    Note: As a security measure, if the email address or phone number associated with the user account is different to the one the invitation was sent to, there will be an additional approval step before the new user can start using Amazon Seller Central.
  2. A web page opens that will display a message confirming that the user has been invited and must accept the invitation.

Edit a user account

  1. Under Settings, click User Permissions.
  2. Click edit next to the account that you want to change.
  3. Select the radio button next to each tool that you want to allow the user to access.
