Verifying Seller Account


#1

Hello.
I`m trying to verify my seller account but it got declined. The response from amazon.com.tr says I need to reside in Turkey and I am!
This is the response they sent me:
Merhaba,

Kaydınız tamamlanamadı.
Amazon.com.tr’de satış yapabilmek için Türkiye’de ikamet etmeniz gerekmektedir.
Önümüzdeki 30 gün içinde ülke bilgilerinizi güncelleyerek yeni belgeleri Seller Central’daki Satıcı Kimlik Doğrulaması bölümüne yükleyin:(https://sellercentral.amazon.tr/hz/approvalrequest/register)
Önümüzdeki 30 gün içinde bu işlemlerden birini gerçekleştirmezseniz Amazon.com.tr’de satış yapmanıza izin verilmeyebilir.

Can someone please help me with this issue?
Also. I`m a refugee in Turkey and have a refugee ID. could it be the problem?

Thank you.

Unfortunately, I don’t think that proof of being a refugee in Turkey will be viewed as equivalent to being a resident in the country for the purpose of Seller Account verification.

Yes you are right. The final email I got from amazon said ONLY Turkish citizens can open a seller account.
So even if you are not a refugee and have a resident permission, you cannot open a seller account.
