Add an answer to this question
You'll need a sellers account to really get the most out of selling on Amazon, they've really gotten big-headed and made it difficult for sellers. Everything needs a UPC now, certain catergories like topicals are going to need approval to list in. Its a headache and sometimes all for your competitors to leave bad reviews that'll live on as long as Amazon does. Depending on what you're selling it may be smart to just stay away from Amazon if you have alternate platforms.
If the product you want to sell is already sold on Amazon, you can just list the item. If not, you will need the item’s UPC/EAN and SKU — these are codes that will help Amazon identify the item.
You then fill out how many products you have to sell, the condition of the products, and the shipping options.
You can choose to fulfill the shipping yourself or you can choose Fulfillment by Amazon. If you handle shipping yourself, you need to make sure products are sent out quickly and are packed well. Fulfillment by Amazon means you are charged a fee but it simplifies the process for you. You just send your product/products to your indicated Fulfillment by Amazon warehouse where it is stored until the item is sold. Amazon then packages and ships the item to the for you.
To sell on Amazon, you can either pay a monthly merchant fee $40 or sell as an individual and pay $1 per each item sold. Which option you choose will depend on how much of your product you are selling.
I hope this was helpful and here’s more information on Amazon’s own page about how to start selling.
Want to do business in Amazon, register a seller account, this is relatively simple, but the follow-up work is relatively complicated. For example, brand filing, VAT, account management, etc. ~~~ In the face of the world's largest e-commerce website, natural business opportunities are full, of course, we must also face the world's super powerful competitors, are you ready?
First, select the account type
1, the general seller: small-scale sellers, monthly sales below 40 commodities.
Cost: $0.99 / commission per item, a little transaction fee.
2, professional sellers: large-scale sellers, monthly sales of more than 40 commodities.
Cost: $39.9/month of store monthly rent, independent transaction fee.
Second, the registered account

The name the consumer sees, there are fixed product recommendations related to the brand name, and there are no specific types available.

The funds that Amazon sells are stored on the account first, and will be settled after a certain period of time, and the money will be remitted to a fixed account. If the account is blocked, the money inside will be beautiful.

After You Register
Once you have registered, Selling on Amazon is a simple four-step process.
You can add products to the Amazon Marketplace catalog one at a time, or if you have a Professional selling subscription, you can add large batches of items using bulk tools.
Two ways to list products
1. List products already on Amazon.com
Indicate how many products you have to sell, condition of the product(s), and shipping options
2. List products not yet on Amazon.com
- Identify UPC/EAN and SKU
- List products attributes - for example title, description
After you list your offers, customers can see them on Amazon.com. With features like 1-Click and a brand millions trust, Amazon helps customers make quick, easy, worry-free purchases. Make sure that when customers see your offer it is accurate and complete, including high-quality product images.
Amazon notifies you when customers place an order. Use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and let Amazon do the shipping—or handle shipping yourself.
4. Get Paid
Amazon deposits payment into your bank account at regular intervals and notifies you that your payment has been sent.
Even I am looking to sell my product on Amazon.. I went to the guidelines of "amazon guide sell" but still there was an issue.. and I think here some of the points which I have not yet tried.. Soo, let me want to try once again..
I see many answers to this question but still I want to add 2 things.
1. I recommend working with your own brand, the so called 'private label'. People like when they buy something unique.
2. You can always order your product in China. However, do not forget to order a sample of your product first. Chinese manufacturers make good products but not always). You should be sure that the product your are going to sell is of high quality.
- Find a product that you want to sell on Amazon.

- Prepare the item to be shipped to a Fulfillment by Amazon warehouse.
- Box up your items and ship them to the warehouse location that Amazon assigns.
