2.
Choose a selling plan
With two selling plans, Amazon offers you the flexibility to sell one, or one thousand. The Professional plan gives you the opportunity to sell an unlimited number of products and pay a $39.99 monthly subscription fee. Individuals pay no monthly fees, but instead pay $0.99 per item sold. Both Professionals and Individuals pay other selling fees when an item sells.

1.
List
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
  2. Indicate how many products you have to sell, condition of the product(s), and shipping options.
  3. List products not yet on Amazon.com
    • Identify UPC/EAN and SKU
    • List products attributes - for example title, description
2.
Sell
Payment for the balance of your orders (net of Amazon Seller fees) is deposited into your bank account, and you receive notification by e-mail that your payment has been sent.
3.
Ship
Amazon notifies you when customers place an order. Use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and let Amazon do the shipping—or handle shipping yourself.
