How to add a sub-user account to Amazon India seller central and grant right permission to help them manage your seller account correctly
Do you want to give access to an employee or a freelancer to manage your Amazon India seller account? All you need to be doing is add the user to the Amazon India seller account and set the required permissions.
Note the user can’t edit the MRP of the products, but they can always offer discounts and sales to reduce the MRP.
As a seller, you shouldn’t share the login access details. Moreover, it has two-factor authentications enabled which means whenever your account manager wants to log in, you have to help them with OTP. Instead, add the other user as an admin to the account. The user can log in to their account to manage your account. Moreover, you have total control over what other users can view or edit in your seller account. You can terminate a user anytime.
With this in mind, let’s add a new user to the Amazon India seller account.
