The sender is only displayed as "" in test messages, as test messages never route through Seller Central's messaging system.ย 

Since the test messages are just for local testing, and using your email address, it may show the name configured for that email address directly or the business name as entered at sign up. This business name may be the same or different from your actual Seller Name on Amazon (as seen on your Seller Profile).

Amazon's system will then put your Seller name as it appears on Amazon and assign a similar, cryptic-looking, email address in the "From" address sent to the buyer.
