2. Open an Amazon seller account
Open a Seller Central account. As a hub for your business, you’ll be doing most of the important things for your Amazon seller account here, such as adding product listings, managing inventory, viewing your reports, and more.
Fill in all the necessary information Amazon asks for, and make sure that every detail is accurate. Some of the information asked will include “business name,” “business address,” “business number/contact,” “credit card and bank information,” “tax information,” plus some other details like billing information.
Choosing what type of account you’re signing up for is one of the most important decisions you’re going to make when setting up an account. These are the two options:
A. Individual: This account gives you access to 20 product categories, but it has a maximum restriction of 40 items sold per month. Beyond 40 items, you’ll be charged a fee of $1 per item sold. There is no monthly subscription fee on this one.
B. Professional: You get access to 30 product categories. You will also be eligible, if approved, to sell additional restricted categories. This has a monthly subscription fee of $39.99.
