If you run a small homegrown business, and looking to expand your avenues, registering yourself as a seller with Amazon FBA is a good option. Follow the below steps to register yourself as a seller on Amazon FBA.
- Create an Amazon Seller Account
You need to fill up some basic details to sell your products on Amazon. These are:
- Business name and address.
- Mobile or telephone number.
- Billing method/deposit.
- Tax information.
Ensure that you read “Before You Register” on their website. Secondly, choose an account type. If you plan to sell more than 40 items in a month, select Professional account, and if lesser, then select Individual account. You will also need to “Agree to Seller Agreement” while setting up your account.
- List your Items on Amazon
Head over to the Inventory tab and click on ‘Add a Product’. Then search for the product by name or barcode, or create a new product. Next step is to define the price of the product. Then select whether you want to ship the product yourself, or want Amazon to do it.
- Convert to “ Amazon Fulfilled”
For being a registered FBA seller, go to the “Inventory” tab in your Seller Central homepage and select “Manage Inventory”. Next select the “Actions” drop down for each product and select “Change to Fulfilled by Amazon”. This will lead to temporary removal of your products from Amazon’s marketplace. However once your products reach Amazon Fulfillment center, the products will be visible again.
- Prepare products
Now you will need to prepare your products and pack them securely before shipping to the fulfillment center. Select a shipping plan and proceed with the instructions that Amazon provides. Once your products reach Amazon Fulfillment center, you can have your first sale!
