So now we’ve told you the whys…..what about the hows?
In a previous blog, we talked about the actual steps to opening up an account, and there can be many steps. Now, let’s talk about the things that can go wrong, and why you should consult with the Axelligence experts to help open up a new account.
You’ll need to SCAN (do not take a picture with your phone, do not take a screenshot) the requested documentation. Whether you’re uploading a passport, driver’s license, or bank statement, triple-check that the name on all the documentation IS EXACTLY THE SAME. Similarly, even the slightest differences, a hyphen, middle name, etc. could cause your application to be declined. And DO not alter the documentation!!
To set up your account, you will need a valid credit card (not a debit card) and a valid bank account. Are you a non-US based seller? Make sure that the bank is Automated Clearing House (ACH) enabled. This is the way Amazon transfers funds so you need to make sure the bank accepts these transactions. Although we don’t recommend any specific bank, Payoneer has become a very popular choice!
Additional Verification Processes
Successful in uploading documentation? Some sellers may be required to undergo a more in-depth verification process. Make your appointment, make sure you have all the relevant documentation and you’ll be fine!
