Frequently Asked Questions

The program

What does Handmade mean?

All products available in your Handmade at Amazon store must be made entirely by hand, hand-altered, or hand assembled (not from a kit). Products must be handmade by you (the artisan), by one of your employees (if your company has 20 or fewer employees), or a member of your collective with less than 100 people. Mass-produced products or products handmade by a different artisan are not eligible to sell in Handmade

What categories are available in Handmade at Amazon?

How can I promote my products on Amazon?

Ready, Set, Ship

Do I need to have UPCs for my products?

UPCs are not required, but you can add your own SKU or bar code to each product to help you track your orders.

Do I need to have professional photos of my products?

Although it is not required to have professional product photos, we recommend that your main product images are shot on a non-distracting background to clearly show the product.

Can my products be part of Amazon Prime?

You can choose to include your products without customizations in our Fulfillment by Amazon program which makes them eligible for Prime shipping. Learn more.

How quickly do I need to ship my products after they are ordered?

Customers want to receive your products as quickly as possible. You can set your own production time (up to 30 days) for each product you make. This lets customers know when to expect their order, so it’s important that it’s accurate.
