Notes for users with multiple Amazon/eBay accounts
If you need to connect more than one Amazon or eBay account then it's simple to connect them all to your Link My Books account.
The process for connecting your first Amazon/eBay account and any others after that is exactly the same.
The only difference is how you start the process. To add an additional account simply click the dropdown menu at the top right of your current Link My Books account and select Add new account as shown below.
