    5 Simple Steps to Opening an Amazon Prime Dropshipping Account
    (Retail Arbitrage)



    [​IMG]


    .

    This is a continuation of my guide located here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/ebay/816974-how-generate-100-per-day-ebay-dropshipping-less-than-2-hours.html


    I have composed a simple 5 Step fail-proof guide to opening an Amazon dropshipping account. It's actually one of the more straightforward processes within the retail arbitrage (dropshipping) niche. Like most stealth/fake accounts that you create, all information will be new and disconnected from your main account including email addresses, credit cards, IP's, etc.

    So let's do this by the numbers...




    STEP 1

    Create a new email, name, mailing address, and phone number. None of these credentials need to be real as none of them will ever be validated by Amazon. If you lack creativity, simply go to http://www.fakenamegenerator.com. This site will create one for you. You can copy and paste the information into your new Amazon account and validate the email address.


    STEP 2

    Obtain a new IP address through a private proxy service or http://arbitrageprofitspy.com/ebaystealthips. Both options are extremely cheap and very easy to use.

    If you're using private proxies for your browser I recommend elite proxy switcher for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/elite-proxy-switcher/

    Or Proxy SwitchySharp for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/proxy-switchysharp/dpplabbmogkhghncfbfdeeokoefdjegm?hl=en

    These extensions will allow you to quickly and easily change your browser IP with a simple click of a button.


    STEP 3

    Download and install cookie/cache clearing extensions like Click&Clean for Firefox browsers: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/clickclean/

    OR Click&Clean for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/clickclean/ghgabhipcejejjmhhchfonmamedcbeod?hl=en

    This will enable you to quickly and easily clear your browser cookies in cache when changing from one Amazon account (like your personal account) to another (like your Amazon stealth account).




    STEP 4

    Purchase a VCC or pre-paid credit card through your local drugstore (walgreens, CVS, etc) or Walmart. You can also retrieve a VCC from many sellers here within BHW. I have personally used Entropay.com as my VCC along with a few other VCC sellers. Don't over complicate this, just purchase one and move on.



    STEP 5

    Sign up for an http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=200444170. Input all the user information you created in step one as well as your new VCC.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: the only information that will be validated by Amazon is your credit card number and expiration.

    Be sure to save all this information on notepad or Excel for later use.


    IMPORTANT NOTE: When and if you decide to change over to your personal Amazon account or another Amazon drop shipping account, ensure that you clear your cache/cookies and change your IP.


    Do this once every 30 days for unlimited Amazon prime shipping for all your eBay fulfillment needs.

    Do you use credit cards for payment of dropship products or you use mainly amazon gift cards?

    A few questions:

    1) If I use Entropay, could I sign up for amazon prime without incurring any cost for me? It says on their site that it's free to create a VCC. I wouldn't need to put any actual payments on the card would I?

    2) Suppose I use a $100 gift card on one of my amazon accounts. When that account gets banned, what happens to the remaining balance on my gift card? Could I just create a new Entropay VCC, make new amazon account with prime trial, and use the same gift card on my new account? If not then I may be loosing up to $100 each time I try this method right?

    3) I have 1.5% cashback on one of my credit cards that I currently have. Could I purchase amazon gift cards from Walmart and use those gift cards to purchase items? Or would they know that it's me? Would cash be the only to buy the amazon gift cards?

    4) Do I need to provide Entropay with my real information (i.e., name, d.o.b, and address)?

    I am ready to open a prime account with AZ but they won't take the pre paid card I brought at Walgreens. So I went to sign up for entropay, but I have to wait 2-3 days for payment verification. I need to place an order since I have a sale from eBay. Any other VCC I could get today that you know of?

    Starting yesterday, Entropay doesn't work for purchases, or, at least, it doesn't work for me... (it still works for activating Prime).

    This is a very good question. Would really love to hear OP's opinion here.

    1. Yes, you would not incur any fees as you would only put around $5 on your card.

    2. No, your amazon prime account is not going to ban you, unless your ordering an immense amount of products (most of you all are not at that level).

    3. You can buy an amazon gift card with your CC on Amazon, from your main account and get the 1.5% back. You don't have to go to a retail store.

    4. Nope

    Literally all the reputable cards I have used from CVS and Walgreens have worked. I mostly use Greendot. Entropay does take time to verify. You can contact support to try and expedite things.

    BTW - I don't mind answering questions, but please leave "Thanks" on my main post if you want answers or else I may just miss yours.

    First, thanks for replying!

    3) Are you sure? Wouldn't it be easy for them to link the new account to my main account if I buy the gift cards using my own credit card straight from amazon's website?

    In retrospect you are simply buying a gift card for use on their own website, they're not concerned since the money is going to be spent on their website anyhow.

    NOTE: I personally have not tried this method. However, I order from Amazon several times a year and make sure I get my monies worth. I always use the same CC to get a Prime Account under a different email and always close it immediately after the trial has started. They still give you the full 30 days access. I'm sure they are aware that many of use CC's multiple times on different accounts. However, like you and I, they want to make money.

    of course it's all recorded and they have the potential to do that, but why would they. dropshippers are a drop in the bucket. as long as you buy cards legally they won't care. however if you start ordering too many they will begin to manually review your orders and ultimately cancel them out of suspicion of fraud

    Correct!@Blueboy- Amazon is not in the least bit worried about who is using their gift card codes, as long as they are purchased. They also don't have a team or software that actually tracks what account is using the gift card. That would be foolish to use resources to monitor that.

    You're simply over-analyzing and worrying about the 0.0001% chance of something bad happening instead of getting out there and getting your hands dirty. If I state it works, it works! It's not because I like to spend my free time typing.

    This is misinformation. Saying they don't track codes who uses the codes is just like saying you should just reuse your codes since they don't have any software to track it. That would be foolish if they didn't. Furthermore, Amazon was able get someone arrested through tracking gift card codes back to the person's account that the gift code was used on.

    I think you're underestimating Amazon's data collection abilities and how easy it would be it would be for them to link accounts using gift codes. Remember, Amazon spends hundreds of millions a year in software in part to raise flags and gather data on your buying/selling practises. They wouldn't even need a team to research that sort of stuff, as I'm sure all data is stored for future reference. Anyhoo in general, you would be foolish to create situations where they can identify you as doing nothing but arbitrage, as they may decide in future that they don't want to do business with arbitrage people, as some department stores are already doing.

    $$$, what else?

    They might not care NOW, but why put yourself in position where if they ever decide that they don't want to act as the drop shipper for stuff sold on eBay, you'll be shut down easier? Amazon is WAY more ruthless in culling sellers than eBay when they change policy or implement new stuff.
