    Hi

    I'm trying to go stealth on Amazon as a pro seller. However when I sign up I see there's something called "the tax interview". To complete the interview I'm required to provide my real name and SSN. Obviously, it's not possible for me to provide this info if I don't want Amazon to link my accounts. If I enter a bogus name/SSN (like 123456789) Amazon will not accept it.

    If I try signing up as an international member Amazon will require me to assert "under penalty of purgery" that I am not US citizen. I do not want to make such a statement bec it is not accurate.

    Is there any way to circumvent the tax interview? I know there are many Amazon account sellers here how do they do it?

    Thanks

    Not if you want to do any significant amounts of business on Amazon. Those amazon accounts that are being sold will get shut down if you start moving any significant amounts of money through them especially so if you try to sell in any restricted categories. Amazon will go way way way beyond eBay in catching and shutting down stealth accounts.

    What if I am not planning to do significant amount of business any way around?

    AFAIK, not for a pro seller account.
