Can't Access Amazon Seller Central - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Janece Karlak · 1 day 4 hours 14 mins ago

I am trying to set up an account to sell. First I got a message saying "trying to sign up to sell on amazon sorry, you are not an authorized seller central user" Now I get a message that says: We are currently experiencing an issue that is impacting the ability to access Seller Central. Our engineers are actively engaged in resolving this issue. (04/23 - 11:39 PDT)

Rachelle Markley · 17 April 2014 - 10:23

Yesterday I had to reset my password in order to log in to seller account because it kept redirecting me to a new log in screen that didn't accept my log in info. Worked after I changed the password. Today, same thing. After I log in I get a new log in screen, and it doesn't recognize my log in info.

Neil Croak · 17 April 2014 - 06:21

ctrl f5 worked for me just now 9:20am eastern 4/17 I'm able to log into Seller Central now.

Garrett Bean · 17 April 2014 - 06:08

I also show Seller Central down and they are working on it.

cannot sign in just keeps giving me the sign in screen again and again… any other options?

Andrew Stewart · 22 January 2014 - 08:47

Amazon Seller Central is slow as molasses and freq. time-outs. All other sites including the Amazon retail site work fine.

Frank Angelillo · 22 January 2014 - 07:35

Amazon Seller Central is not responding as of January 22, 2014 10:15am EST. Internet browser is able to load other sites, problem is affecting across network

Chrissy Albice · 20 January 2014 - 20:43

I'm getting constant pinwheels on seller.central on Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Anyone else having these problems. Been happening for about three days now.

Mariya Babaskina · 30 December 2013 - 13:03

Is there an e-mail address for support? I've been on hold for 45 minutes and can't put in a support case. Grrr!

Peter J Reali · 23 December 2013 - 11:51

I don't know if anyone else is having issues but I am unable to reach my Sellercentral account.

Maya Encabo · 11 November 2013 - 03:06

Been having so much difficulty with seller central for three days now, it's been timing out. I've tried using it on safari, chrome and firefox but it just keeps on timing out and asking me to reload. I have the same experience with

Leigh Newton · 23 October 2013 - 13:58

I'm logged in but stuck in a loop where everything I click on takes me back to my seller settings. I can't access any of my inventory or orders. Even the seller support leads nowhere. Tried both Google and Explorer. The only other link that works on the site is a few items on the settings preference tab.

Umair Ahmed · 22 August 2013 - 03:36

I am trying to login seller central but service unavailable Please try back later. any body tell me ?

We're sorry. The Web address you entered is not currently functioning. Click here to visit the Seller Central home page.

Margaret Bramlett · 8 August 2013 - 06:42

Ok...all you sellers out there that cannot log into your seller central account! After being on hold for 15 min. a human at Amazon has confirmed that there is a problem on THEIR end and "they are working on it." She said to try logging in every hour to see if it is fixed. She said they could not estimate when it would be fixed. Other than a "thank you for your patience, " she offered no other assistance.

Hannah Walsh · 7 August 2013 - 17:22

It says I'm an unauthorized user as well so I can't even log onto the website to get the order information to ship out my products that I was supposed to ship today. Wish they would send out an email to sellers telling us when the website will be fixed.

Margaret Bramlett · 7 August 2013 - 11:59

I cannot access Amazon Seller Central. All day it has said I am not a registered seller, but I am. The service was down yesterday but restored late in the afternoon. Is this a widespread issue?

Brett Elisabeth Fenderson · 7 August 2013 - 11:22

It says I am unauthorized! I verified my email and gave them my bank info, so I'm hoping this is part of the issue everyone else is having! I shipped out a book yesterday but couldn't log in to tell the person that it is shipped. This sucks!

Michael Jacobs · 6 August 2013 - 13:09

Only once I could log into Amazon-SC I could read "Technical Notification
Aug 6, 2013 - We are currently experiencing an issue that is impacting the ability to access all or parts of Seller Central. (08/6 - 10:27 PST) Learn more" -good place for the message.

Brian Vick · 6 August 2013 - 13:00

OMG people. Why are you all calling them? seriously? are you going to help by calling? are you that important that you feel that you need special attention? When it is fixed it is fixed. calling is not going to help. Think about that annoying customer that calls you every day to ask where their package is. and you tell them everyday what the tracking number is and that it is on its way. there is nothing you can do for the customer. Like now there is nothing amazon is going to do to fix this any faster for you. I'm sure there will be a message once it is back up and running in seller central explaining everything. People Get a grip. the world did not just end.

Vickie Fries · 6 August 2013 - 12:58

I still can not access my sales info so can't ship orders any word on a fix for this. it's been hours

Shahbaz Khan · 6 August 2013 - 12:54

Yes its down, Thanks God I have updated Trackings for my orders, still have some orders to process.

Mykel Board · 6 August 2013 - 12:51

Seller site still down. I wonder if this is their move to get rid of independent sellers and make it an ALL AMAZON world. What other reason for not responding to inquiries?

Shirley Adams Zona · 6 August 2013 - 12:51

I called Amazon customer support after I couldn't get on for several minutes this morning. They transferred me to seller support. I was told they were aware of the issue and were working on it. He said that their computer system there was also down. What a nightmare! I believe it was a "hacker", but we'll see. Fortunately I had finished shipping all my orders before it went down. Wondering if this will affect the bulk of my orders through FBA.

Kasey Taylor Lee · 6 August 2013 - 12:48

Amazon Seller Account is down... I've been checking it all day I have an order to go out... can't even let the buyer know it shipped!!! (and I'm on the East Coast so it is not up for me)

EllenBeth Wachs · 6 August 2013 - 12:43

People have been tweeting at them since this morning about this issue. Amazon help has been ignoring the seller's tweets but answering the buyers tweets

Elyn Walker · 6 August 2013 - 12:40

Seller Central down for 6 hours and counting as of noon, Tuesday 8/6/13 in California. Glad I'm still getting orders, frustrated that I cannot process/mail any of those orders.

William Manning · 6 August 2013 - 12:39

Seller central down for 6 hours now. Got an order to go out and customers to contact. Hope it's up tonight.

George Grey · 6 August 2013 - 12:38

Seller support forums are down too:

Michael Jacobs · 6 August 2013 - 12:38

I hope people are still buying.. why we really need is Amazon to let buyers know we can not get access to their orders, I doubt our metrics will be adjusted, Amazon has made it clear when I have found mistakes this is all automated.

Jerry Russell · 6 August 2013 - 12:34

not only is seller central down but all AMTU file transmissions are failing - for us at least

Gpsgiftgallery Gifts · 6 August 2013 - 12:30

Seller account has been down here in Ohio since 10am Eastern time. My guess is they were hacked. The generic post you get says make some improvements. Please they would NEVER do that in the middle of the day. They were hacked.

Elaine Brown Furtado · 6 August 2013 - 12:26

Just talked to Amazon. There is a technical issue, not a maintenance issue or as my generic message is stating 'Our website is currently unavailable while we make some improvements to our service'. They told me that improvements and maintenance are done during the night. Amazon said they could not tell me when Amazon will have the issue under control or guarantee that it will be up today. She did say that yes, it will affect our metrics, but that Amazon will reverse that automatically. I wouldn't count on that, so you all may want to monitor your metrics as soon as things get up and running again.

Brian Vick · 6 August 2013 - 12:26

@ Shipworks users I see they offer an Express 1 Account "free". 2 questions do you have to pay a monthly fee for it like you do and the "big Discount" they offer. is it any lower then the rate you pay if using Example a flat rate envelope on is $5.05. what is it with express 1?

Reana Artley · 6 August 2013 - 12:20

Frustrating to say the least! I have orders to ship and my goodness...what are they going to do with my metrics due to the fact that they didn't go out ASAP. Unbelievable, simply unbelievable... a multi million dollar company down in the midst of a business day. Sorry but it is inexcusable.

Jimmy Beerse · 6 August 2013 - 12:14

This has never happened in all the years I have been selling on Amazon. As someone below said I find it odd that they allow people to continue to purchase orders that we cannot process. I just hope when it comes back up that the money balance isn't messed with. Go figure today is the day when my money transfers from my Amazon account to my bank account. All the sales leading up to the transfer count and it really sucks not being able to process all the orders before the transfer initiates.

Celia An Glenn · 6 August 2013 - 12:11

Seller central has been down for about an hour here on the southern west coast of the USA

Luke Song · 6 August 2013 - 12:09

Amazon seller central is down yet again! I know the Next Day and Expedited shipments will not go out today because my pickup is in 30 minutes... Hope this doesnt affect my metrics...

Jasdeep Singh Sidana · 6 August 2013 - 12:03

That's a good idea, I think we'll also set up our ShipWorks to download orders at 10 minute intervals so that we can at least have something to work with before a crash. We really should have contingency plans for these kinds of things.

Thomas Sansone · 6 August 2013 - 11:56

We have been selling on Amazon for years and have NEVER had this kind of interruption. I am sure this is something that was not planned. I have not called seller support, and wont. Why bother when they can't tell you anything. We close our store in 5 hours if its not up by then then i may have to call them.

Will Yates · 6 August 2013 - 11:54

lmao it worked long enough for me to ship my couple orders and then it went down again. Guess I got lucky. lol

Debbie Silver · 6 August 2013 - 11:41

my amazon has been down for at about 6 hours now. Sooo frustrating!!

Elaine Brown Furtado · 6 August 2013 - 11:41

What's really bad is that Amazon is allowing customers to purchase items we can't ship!

Rob Kaneff · 6 August 2013 - 11:41

@Leigh Osiensky, We use a third party system (Shipworks) that will download orders from Amazon. Our downloads from Amazon are set to run every ten minutes, so we have at least the most recent orders from Amazon within ten minutes of the crash. If Amazon service is intermittent at least we'll be able to grab the orders when Amazon is up. Shipworks can also be set so that when it pulls the order from Amazon, it will print out automatically on you printer. (We do not do this because of our heavy volume) BTW, Shipworks is not expensive and is based on your shipping volume.

PrimeChoice AutoParts · 6 August 2013 - 11:38

Seller central is down and has been up and down for 3 hours. Amazon should be better than this!!!

Michael Jacobs · 6 August 2013 - 11:33

08/06/2013 Seller Central is down... Can not see new orders, post tracking, work with inventory 3.5 hours and counting.

Rob Kaneff · 6 August 2013 - 11:33

@Peter J Reali That's odd, I wonder what that SW error is all about. We also use SW and no errors, at all. We do not do an individual upload after process and print, (got in trouble for that) we do a batch upload a few times a day, but obviously we'll have to do a large upload later today or tomorrow.

Andrew Christopher Seefried · 6 August 2013 - 11:30

Unfortunately our system runs off of our order reports uploaded from Amazon and there is no way around it for us until its up and running.

Leigh Osiensky · 6 August 2013 - 11:29

@ Rob Kaneff how do you know the order information? The Amazon "Sold" email does not contain the shipping info required, meaning the address of the buyer. Can you please explain how you are still processing orders.

Peter J Reali · 6 August 2013 - 11:25

@ Rob Kaneff: We use Shipworks here but we had to jimmy rig some sort of plan cause we were getting errors in Shipworks when we tried shipping out. It's just going to make my day tomorrow a little longer.

Rob Kaneff · 6 August 2013 - 11:20

What's your backup plan to ship your orders? Especially you @Andrew with 369 to ship. We've got 2 solid plans for backup, #1 was implemented this morning. We've shipped 835 so far 2:15 pm Eastern time. When Amazon is back up, we'll confirm with one upload. Look into Shipworks,, Endicia, USPS Click and Ship, UPS, etc.

Fred Rosenfeld · 6 August 2013 - 11:16

Probably no small problem if it is down this long. Hoping it is fixed by 6mp Eastern Time... otherwise it could be a long night for me.

Naif Ahmad · 6 August 2013 - 11:14

Lucky you David... I wish I had come to work at 4 am... Thanks for the reply Peter... I guess I'll just have the warehouse guys move our few ebay orders for now. Hopefully our Amazon metrics won't be affected!

David Neal Schulze · 6 August 2013 - 11:07

I wanted to be mad at the dogs for waking me up at 4 am this morning. But I got to work instead. Good thing I did.

Peter J Reali · 6 August 2013 - 11:06

@ Naif Ahmad: There is no reason to call. They are just going to give you some stupid "Cookie Cutter" response. We can't expect them to be honest with their customers.

Oh and it looks like we are back to the generic page again ("Website Temporarily Unavailable"). I'm not sure if this is the best day at work or the worst.

Andrew Christopher Seefried · 6 August 2013 - 11:06

369 orders to ship out including 46 next day, I hope they protect us and our metrics from all the negative feedback!

Brian Vick · 6 August 2013 - 11:00

what is calling seller central going to do for you? when it is fixed it is fixed.

Orlando De La Cruz · 6 August 2013 - 10:58

"Seller Central" went up and is down once again... The message has changed from the "Website Temporarily unavailable" with an extra message below to a smaller "service unavailable" message.

@David Farkas
They have claimed these issues won't mess with our metrics

Naif Ahmad · 6 August 2013 - 10:56

Amazon came back up for about 15 minutes and crashed again... I sold about 85 items today and cannot process any shipments so far. Is there a number we, Sellers, can use to call Seller support??

Brian Vick · 6 August 2013 - 10:51

I so highly doubt that amazon will punish anyone for not shipping orders today. I guarentee an E-mail will go out to all customers today once this is resolved explaining there were problems with the site and order processing may be delayed a day or 2.

Jeff Harrington · 6 August 2013 - 10:48

I just got an email that I have a new order. So at least that's working. We are not all out of business (yet).

Peter J Reali · 6 August 2013 - 10:47

This is getting irritating. It was up, but not it's back down again. (i'm on the East Coast)

Nancy Pittman Green · 6 August 2013 - 10:44

Arkansas USA still cannot access Seller Account. I can get into Amazon & it appears I can search items if I were going to order. I am a Seller unable to process orders.

Thomas Sansone · 6 August 2013 - 10:43

I was able to get into and process a few orders but not Now is down again.

Brian Vick · 6 August 2013 - 10:43

So have you all noticed the Message is very generic looking. does not have the amazon logo or anything of the sort. ???

Sha Brucey · 6 August 2013 - 10:37

i've not been able to get on amazon at all, and we have orders pending! i sent an email, but have yet to get a response...

Jess Suitter · 6 August 2013 - 10:37

Still can't get in in Maine. Says the same message about it being temporarily unavailable.

Nancy Pittman Green · 6 August 2013 - 10:32

I keep trying but it keeps saying "service unavailable.please try back later"

Sally Keefe · 6 August 2013 - 10:25

Those that are getting in - what part of the US are you in? I still have no access here - Pacific Coast

Julie Yenoh · 6 August 2013 - 10:24

I got into the order page through the link on the email. Maybe it will work for your overnight orders.

Mike Cackle · 6 August 2013 - 10:23

Class action time? All the prices of thingst they undercut us by 35% now 20% higher because they have no current competition on their own market. Fraud on so many levels

Mikolaj Stachura · 6 August 2013 - 10:20

I know we have at least 2 next day orders... this sucks....
Edit: I was just able to log in...

Luke Song · 6 August 2013 - 10:18

Seller Central Amazon has been down for at least 3.3 hours now at 1:20PM EST. Hoping there's no Next Day shipping!

Will Yates · 6 August 2013 - 10:15

This sucks! I just started selling on Amazon last week and I HAVE TO GET THESE ORDERS OUT EARLY so I can keep getting perfect feedback. I'll be pretty upset if this causes a problem with some orders.

Sally Keefe · 6 August 2013 - 10:15

Saying it is "upgrades" is a smoke screen. NO business does that and Amazon does do updates at night - not during peak business hours! This is a problem - not an update!

Sally Keefe · 6 August 2013 - 10:10

I did get to talk with seller support - through customer support - and they have no real reason. The screen that says they are improving the seller page is pretty much an excuse rather than them just showing the not available sign. My guess is that it could have something to do with the log in problems lately in just getting TO the seller page. I have to do a go-around in my orders simply to log in and then go to seller page. I have opened a case for this but the generic response has done nothing to fix the problem. Maybe buying the Washington Post took all their energy...

David J Melbourne · 6 August 2013 - 09:59

Called 2 min ago - They are not saying WHY Seller Central is down but promised that our metrics will not be affected. DavidM

Robert Fink · 6 August 2013 - 09:56

I just called and asked for an update, I was given the cookie cutter response. Check back in 1-2 hours, I called in 2 1/2 hours ago and they gave me the same response. Not great customer service.

Ali Dakhlallah · 6 August 2013 - 09:45

Seller central is down. Why doesn't Amazon work on its site overnight like a normal company??

Mark Peden · 6 August 2013 - 09:42

Amazon Seller Central is offline. Anyone hear when it might be back up?

Sung-Jin Jun · 6 August 2013 - 09:40

It seems like Amazon customers can buy from Amazon. Only, Seller Central is down.

Ken Steele · 6 August 2013 - 09:35

So I am new to seller central so I don't know the answer to this but I still had a few people send me messages and buy some items while sellercentral is down at the same time, are these sales and messages legit, can customers still interact even though I can't respond?

Dealsnmore Threetwothree · 6 August 2013 - 09:29

My Seller Central is not available. When I tried to log in I'm just routed to another page that reads "WEBSITE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE" :( I cannot ship my orders, I just hope Sellers are not affected for shipping delays!!

The Gluten-Free Professor · 6 August 2013 - 09:26

Seller Central is down due to enhancements/upgrades. You'd think they could do this at a more opportune time like 2:00AM.

Sung-Jin Jun · 6 August 2013 - 09:01

Seller Account was down about over two hours now and Seller Forum which was working during the outrage also gone now.

Dan Marcacci · 6 August 2013 - 08:59

Seller central is still down. Sabre (the nation's airline reservation internet site) also was down for a period of time messing up millions of reservations and causing flight delays... Are they related? cyber attack? Any media reporting anything???

Kathy Caldwell · 6 August 2013 - 08:46

11:44 AM EST. I can't get in either. Getting either Sorry, you do not have sufficient rights to view this page. Please contact your site admin if you think you have received this message in error. or Service Unavailable Please try back later, when I try to log in

Frank Stone · 6 August 2013 - 08:21

Amazon Seller Central seems to be down for a lot people this morning. Been down for over an hour.

Gloria Blanford-Martinez · 6 August 2013 - 08:20

I cannot process my orders. getting message that "Seller Central is temporarily unavailable" Sigh

Lorianne Dilas Campbell · 6 August 2013 - 08:18

I cannot get on to my seller account today. A message comes up and says to try later.

Luke Song · 6 August 2013 - 08:16
