If you are an Amazon Seller, don’t forget to put your listings on hold while you’re on vacation. Here’s how to activate Amazon Seller Vacation Mode in the Amazon Seller app.
The days before a vacation can be a stressful experience. In addition to packing your bags and traveling to your destination, we usually have a long list of other tasks. For example, boarding pets, watering plants and feeding fish. But if you’re an eBay or Amazon Seller, then you also have to worry about your product listings. Unless you have someone who can manage your store, then you’ll need to put your Amazon Seller Central account in Vacation Mode.

How To Put Your Amazon Store In Vacation Mode
The good news is that it’s much easier to put your Amazon Store in Vacation Mode than an eBay Seller store. For eBay Sellers, Vacation Mode is a paid feature. But Amazon allows you to activate Amazon Seller Vacation Mode for free.
1Download The Amazon Seller App
If you haven’t already, download the Amazon Seller app. It’s available for both iOS and Android. You can also enable Amazon Seller Vacation Mode from the Amazon Seller Central website, but you should have the app too. I’ve forgotten to enable Amazon Vacation Mode before and done it while already on vacation via the app. Oops.
2Open The Account Menu
3Tap On The Preferences Gear Icon
5Unselect Your Stores
6Go On Vacation!
That’s it. Go on vacation. Spend time with your friends and family without worrying about your Amazon Store. No one will be able to order items from your Amazon Store until you recheck these boxes.
