When you set up your Seller Central account, only you can access the account tools and features. You can provide access to other employees, co-owners, or contractors by setting your User Permissions. By default, Primary users will have access to all pages and features associated with their account.
There are three types of users:
Primary Account Users: A primary user, also known as the account administrator, is the one who registers a new Seller Central account. The primary user will have access to every page and feature their account type offers.
Secondary Account Users: A secondary user is invited by the primary user, through User Permissions. A primary user can grant certain permissions to a secondary user. By setting user permissions, other users can complete tasks such as manage inventory or handle shipping confirmations.
Note: A secondary user will become an Admin when a primary user or another Admin grants them View and Edit permission to the User Permissions page. The Admin can then manage permissions for other secondary users.
Authorized partner: An authorized partner is an individual or company to whom you have granted access to your account. Authorized partner will only have access to the data that you grant. All external contractor or companies that are not part of your company must be added as authorized partners. Do not add them as your secondary account users.
