Amazon Seller Central down across the EU

As ecommerce retailers wake up and start logging on to commence their day’s work, today they’re discovering that Amazon’s Seller Central is down. Many thanks to everyone who’s emailed in to let us know already this morning.

Amazon have said “Seller Central is temporarily unavailable. Our technical staff are working on a solution. While we work to fix this issue, Seller Support will not be able to access Seller Central on your behalf. We apologise for the inconvenience.”


As is always the case, we have absolutely no idea how long Seller Central could be off line for, it could be half an hour or it could be all morning. What we do know is that there’s very little anyone can do about it so put the kettle on, have a leisurely breakfast, stressing over it won’t change anything.

If you use third party multichannel management tools then you should be ok – as far as we’re aware there are no issues with the Amazon API. It’s only if you need to log directly into Amazon Seller Central that you’ll find problems.
