Head's up. Amazon Seller Central now will cancel your account if you have not sold anything in 30 days. If you have inventory stored with them, they will not send it back to you. When that inventory sells, you will get an email, but they keep the money since your account is closed.
The normal Amazon helpdesk cannot help, and you cannot reply to messages from Seller Central; however, the Seller Central help form is available if you log out of the error page, go the front login page, click help next to the sign-in button, then middle-right, you can click on "Contact Us".
However, all of the support people believe this is acceptable behavior. There is no escalation, and your only recourse is to make a new account and sell more items.
There is apparently a phone number for seller central, and I got someone who was willing to at least submit a request for my account to be reopenned, but "it will take a while."
