What to Expect After You Register
After you create your seller account on Amazon, you can immediately begin listing your products for sale. If you’re an individual, you will be able to add your inventory one product at a time, but if you have a professional subscription, you can set up your inventory in batches to save time.
You can sell products that are already listed on Amazon by finding an item and then setting up your listing in a snap. Simply search for the product, click on the “Sell on Amazon” button within the listing, indicate the quantity that you have available, describe the condition of the item(s), and then choose the shipping options that you want to offer.
If you have products that Amazon isn’t already selling, you just have to provide the SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) and the UPC (Universal Product Code). You will assign the unique SKU for internal use and inventory management, but the UPC is constant throughout an item’s shelf life and can be scanned and recognized by anyone. After providing these codes, you can then submit an item’s attributes, including its title and description.
Once your listings have been created, you can sit back and wait for your sales to come in. Then you can either ship the items yourself as they sell, or you can stick with FBA and let Amazon fulfill the order from start to finish before giving you your cut of the profits.
To get paid, Amazon will deposit the money right into your bank account. Notifications will be sent when payments are transferred to your account. It really is that simple, which is why so many people have been getting their start in e-commerce on Amazon.
