    A VPN service provider (otherwise known as a Virtual Private Network) encrypts all of your traffic, replacing your ISP and routing all traffic through the VPN server, including programs and applications you might be using on your laptop or smartphone. A VPN will work with all internet-based services.
    (SOURCE: strongvpn.com/difference-between-proxy-and-vpn.html)

    A "proxy" or "application-level gateway", is a computer that acts as a gateway between a local network (e.g., all the computers at one company or in one building) and a larger-scale network such as the Internet.

    VPN's are usually considered more secure connection types since traffic is routed through a network, and proxies typically work on a single ip for one user per connection. But of course as we all know in today's age, nothing is 100% secure.

    So here is a situation. For this example- I have one internet connection, 1 laptop but two amazon accounts. So can i use laptop for first account and then switch to VPN to access second amazon account?

    Will amazon figure it out?

    Or other option is:
    1> Use a new Tmobile data hotspot. via iphone on a new laptop just for the second account.

    For you i recommend you to get Dedicated Private proxy and ask the provider to retain the SAME old ips so your accounts get attached with those same ips.

    In my experience it works the best.

    For Amazon & eBay private proxies are the best.

    Private and dedicated proxy is much safe then VPN used by multiple users.
