Notification preferences

Notification Preferences allow you to indicate how you want to receive notifications and alerts about your seller account.

To set your notification preferences, follow these steps:

  1. From your seller account, select Settings, then select Notification Preferences.
  2. On the Notifications Options tab, review your email settings.
  3. To update or add an email address, click the Edit button for each type of notification.
  4. Update or add your email address, select which notifications you wish to enable, and click Save.
Note: Leaving a box unselected means you will be opted out of receiving future notifications.

If you are a global seller selling in multiple locales, you will need to review/update preferences for each locale individually.

Email delivery failure

On your seller account home page, there is an alert box. This alert notifies you of any delivery failures with your email notifications. Email delivery can fail because your inbox is full or your internet service provider failed to deliver the notification.

If you receive an alert, go to Notification Preferences to reset your delivery preferences, and then follow up with your Internet service provider for any technical issues.
