No. It is expressly written in Amazon’s Terms And Conditions that you may only have one account.
Section 4.2 States
“Account Information; No Multiple Accounts. You must ensure that all information you provide in connection with establishing your Program account, such as your name, address and email, is accurate when you provided it, and you must keep it up to date as long as you use the Program. You may maintain only one account at a time. If we terminate your account, you will not establish a new account. You will not use false identities or impersonate any other person or use a username or password you are not authorized to use. You authorize us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider appropriate to verify account information you provide. You also consent to us sending you emails relating to the Program and other publishing opportunities from time to time.”
Accidental Accounts Still Count As Multiple Accounts
You can have your accounts terminated if amazon finds out you have more than one. Sometimes these accounts can be created or found by accident.
If you had a kdp account years ago but forgot, is one way that we would considered it an accident. but it still counts to Amazon as having more than one account.
Amazon considers IP addresses, so if there is more than one account on an ip address even though it may be two or three different people with account, it still counts as more than one account and they can all be terminated. Avoid logging in to your kdp account at places that have public wifi for the same reasons as mentioned above.
Why We thought Answering This Question Was Important.
We have seen online the idea that you should have more than one account if you have multiple author names.
As clearly stated by Amazon you may only have one account. So this is bad and incorrect information being circulated online. Please do not fall for this trap. Amazon will delete or terminate all accounts if they find out.
The good news is that you CAN have up to 3 author profile names under one account. Any more than that and you are out of luck. So plan your author names carefully.
Plus, as we mentioned above, it is not a good idea for mulitple people to use the same IP Address as this can also get you account terminated.
You may only have one account KDP Account but you can have up to 3 author names on that one account. Follow the rules of Amazons Terms And Conditions and you won’t have to face your KDP account being terminated.
