It’s not complicated at all to become an individual Amazon Seller, only a little patience and learning: after all, there are many categories in Amazon in which you could sell your product, different ways to ship, many marketplaces to sell in (Amazon US, UK, etc.), with each marketplace having its own advantages, disadvantages, regulations, etc. First, after registration, you need to decide if you want to be an individual Amazon seller, or a professional Amazon seller. Being an individual seller means you can sell up to 40 items per month in up to 20 categories, and Amazon will charge you $0.99 for each item sold (it will be deducted from the sale).  Being an individual Amazon seller allows you “test your feet” in the world of eCommerce and Amazon selling in particular.

To become an individual Amazon seller, you’ll need to provide the following details: Business name (this is the name customers will see), legal name, address, contact details, a “ship from” address, and shipping options.  You need to have a supplier from which to source the product. You also need to decide in which Amazon marketplace you want, or it’s viable, for you to sell (platforms like Algopix can help you). Finally, you need to decide on your shipping method – Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) or Fulfilled by Merchant).
