Select a shipping method

You can choose to ship orders to buyers yourself or use Amazon's fulfillment services to do shipping for you. If you choose to do shipping yourself, decide whether you want to offer expedited or international shipping. When you offer a certain shipping option, you can mail your order using any carrier and method, as long as the buyer receives their package within the time frame they chose.

If you choose to have Amazon ship orders for you, your listings will be eligible for free shipping on orders with eligible items that total $35 or more, Prime, customer service, and returns. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) fees will apply.

Selling Multiple Copies

All sellers have the option to list in quantity. We ask that sellers follow these listing guidelines:

  • If you have multiple identical copies of the same item, use the quantity field rather than create multiple unique listings.
  • If you have multiple copies of the same item in different conditions or editions, you need to create a unique listing for each item per condition type or edition.

In addition, items that are fulfilled by Amazon may be listed separately for each condition type.

SKUs

Stock keeping unit. This is an optional field, but if you have many items to list, you may wish to consider assigning a SKU to each item to help you to locate it when it is sold. The SKU can be numbers, letters, or a combination of both.

We encourage sellers not to base their inventory management system on the listing ID our system assigns to the listing. There are a number of reasons that this number might be lost, which could make it very difficult to locate a particular item in your inventory.
