Make sure your document DPI and the export DPI match.

Illustrator documents don't have a resolution.

You should export it at 72 ppi instead of 300 ppi, which makes Illustrator create more pixels.

Amazon doesn't understand resolution.

They can either give you a physical size and then a resolution to accompany it. Those two combined will lead to pixel dimensions (that's just math).

Or they can give you the pixel dimensions directly.

If you want to keep the amount of pixels but change the resolution without changing the amount of pixels, just go in Photoshop to Image > Image Size... and set the Resolution to 300 Pixels/Inch and Uncheck Resample. Save the file.

On a Mac you can also change the resolution without resampling with the Preview app with Tools > Adjust Size...
