Re: Amazon MWS Developer Registration and Assessment

Please submit a support ticket for this.  We have documents pre-completed that you can submit.  This is regarding Amazon safeguarding PII (personal identifiable information).  Your developer key needs to maintain access to that info so you get the shipping address with orders.
