Getting Started

Setting up your Amazon seller account is the first step to start selling on Amazon. Here’s how to do it:

Steps to Set Up an Amazon Seller Account

Choose a Selling Plan:

  • Individual Plan: Suitable if you plan to sell fewer than 40 items per month. There is no monthly subscription fee, but you pay a fee per item sold.
  • Professional Plan: Ideal if you plan to sell more than 40 items per month. This plan has a monthly subscription fee but no per-item fee.

Create Your Seller Account:

  • Go to Amazon Services.
  • Click on “Sign Up” or “Start Selling.”
  • Enter your personal and business information, including your name, email, and password.
  • Choose your marketplace (e.g., for the USA).

Provide Business Information:

  • Enter your business name, address, and contact information.
  • Provide bank account details where Amazon will deposit your earnings.
  • Add tax information for compliance.

Verify Your Identity:

  • Amazon will ask for documentation to verify your identity. This may include a government-issued ID and a recent bank statement or utility bill.

Set Up Your Seller Profile:

  • Customize your seller profile with a business logo, description, and return policies.
  • Set up shipping options and rates based on your business model.

Practical Example

Imagine you decide to start selling handmade candles. Here’s how you might proceed:

  • Selling Plan: Choose the Professional Plan since you aim to sell more than 40 candles per month.
  • Create Account: Sign up on Amazon Services, providing your personal details.
  • Business Information: Enter your business name, “Cozy Candle Creations,” your address, and bank account details.
  • Verify Identity: Upload a scanned copy of your driver’s license and a recent utility bill.
