Amazon Seller

What is an Amazon seller?
An Amazon seller is an individual or business who sells products and inventory on Amazon’s online marketplaces. Sellers have the opportunity to reach global markets by selling internationally via Amazon U.K., Amazon France, Amazon Japan, Amazon Canada, Amazon Mexico and more. Many Amazon sellers have found success by leveraging Amazon’s global scale to gain access to millions of customers around the world. That being said, Amazon sellers may choose to only operate in their home country, or a combination of their home country and some hand-picked international marketplaces.


Individual vs Professional
Anyone can sign up to become an Amazon seller and start selling right away. There are two kinds of Amazon sellers: professional and individual. Professional sellers pay USD 39.99 per month along with referral and variable closing fees. Individual sellers pay referral and variable closing fees as well as an additional USD 1 per item. It’s important to understand the difference between these options and to make sure you take the time to do your research when setting up your online store.
