Step 1: Choose among Professional Seller Plan and the Individual Seller Plan
- Individual Plan: This is the best option if you plan to sell fewer than 40 goods each month. There is no monthly subscription charge, however your selling fees are $0.99 per item, plus referral and variable closing fees. (If you wish to skip forward, we’ll address the selling fees afterwards.)
- Professional Plan: Unless you sell fewer than 40 things each month, most established companies will begin here. There is a monthly subscription cost of $39.99, as well as referral fees and variable closing fees (but no fees per item)
Step 2:Open an Amazon Seller Account:
- A credit card that may be used to make foreign purchases.
- Banking specifics (including routing and account numbers)
- Tax identification number
- To begin the registration procedure, go to the “Sell on Amazon” page and scroll all the way to the bottom.

Step 3:Comply with Amazon's Prompts
- Information / Seller Agreement: You will need your company’s name and address, a mobile or landline phone number, a charged credit card and a legitimate bank account, as well as your tax details.
- Billing / Deposit: Here you will choose your professional selling plan and costs.
- Important Tax Information: You will choose whether you are a solo owner or a business here. What’s the big difference? Individuals and sole proprietors utilise their Social Security Number as their tax identification number rather than an Employer Identification Number.
- Product Information: Amazon will ask you a number of questions regarding your items, such as UPC numbers, if you produce your products, and how many products you want to put on the marketplace. It should be noted that Amazon is currently cross-referencing UPC numbers allocated to various ASINs on their marketplace with the GS1 database. This implies that any seller who does not have real GS1 UPC codes risks having their listings deleted if Amazon decides to take that way.
