One of the things I get asked about all the time is “how do you go about setting up an Amazon Seller Account”? Now this can be as simple or as difficult as you would like to make it, but if you follow these steps, you shouldn’t go far wrong.

Setting up an Amazon Seller Account

Firstly you need to choose whether you want a basic account or a pro account. The main difference is the cost. The basic account charges you £0.75 per sale and is designed for people that have fewer than 35 sales per month, the pro account charges you a flat monthly fee of £25.00 and is designed for people with more than 35 sales per month. I would personally start with a basic account and upgrade later on if needs be.

Go ahead and log in; use either an existing Amazon (buyer) account or create a new one. This is completely down to you; if you are creating a business and want to keep it separate from your personal Amazon account, I would recommend creating a new account, however if you want to link it to your personal account, go ahead and use your existing account.

You’re then asked to read and adhere to some selling rules, as well as what your country of residence is.

After this, you are asked to set up your payment information, company/business information and then finally asked to verify your phone number; this can be done by phone call or text message, whereby you’re asked to verify a pin.
