But before we go further, first you will need to understand how to start your business on Amazon.
You are going to need to sign up for an account so you can go ahead and start sourcing products. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to set up your Amazon FBA account and you’ll see your options.
You should create your account before you invest in any stock!
The first step is to go to:
On the page, click Start Selling:
You’ll then need to register your business details as shown below:
Follow the rest of the steps to complete your Seller account registration.
In order to get started, you will need to start creating your listings. This is relatively easy fortunately! Just sign into the homepage and then find the inventory tab. Click “Add a Product” and then “Create a New Product Listing.” You can then select the most relevant category for your product.
The next page may be a little overwhelming and is filled with fields to fill out. The good news is that a lot of these can be ignored, but things you will need to fill out include:
- Item name (the name of your product as it will be seen by the customer)
- Brand name (your business name)
- Recommended Browse Node
- Product ID (the IUPC number on the barcode)
- Fulfilment channel
For the last option you need to select “I want amazon to dispatch and provide customer service for my items if they sell.”
You’ll also need to write a description, add keywords, and more. We’ll discuss how to choose the best options for all these things in future, but for now, all you need to do is to click save and finish!
