What should I do if I can't find what I want to sell in the Amazon catalog?

If you want to sell an item but it does not currently exist in our retail catalog, you may be able to create a page for it using the Add a Product tool in your seller account. Once a page has been created for the product, you can list your copy of the item on it. Learn more.

Please note there are restrictions on some products and categories, and we cannot guarantee that an item will be accepted into our catalog. Learn more about Category, Product, and Listing Restrictions.

How do I decide if a Professional selling plan is right for me?

Our Professional selling plan is optional--you do not need a paid subscription to begin selling on our site. That said, the Professional selling plan has many benefits for frequent or volume sellers. Read more about the Professional selling plan, including details about how to sign up. For instructions on upgrading your current account, see Individual and Professional Selling Plans.

How will I know when I have a sale?

We will e-mail you after Amazon Payments authorizes the buyer's payment method. You can see orders, obtain shipping information, and confirm shipments in Manage Orders in your Seller Account. Professional sellers can also download Order Reports to view sales.

Are there any fees for selling?

Marketplace items list for free, but a 6 to 25 percent referral fee, a variable closing fee, and a $0.99 per-item fee are applied when a sale occurs. The $0.99 per-item fee is waived for Professional sellers. Click to view more information about Marketplace seller fees (including a list of referral fees) and shipping credits

When will I get my money?

After you confirm a shipment we deposit the money into your Payments account. Every 14 days we disburse those funds to you. Learn more about Transferring Funds to Your Bank Account.

How can buyers see all of my listings in one place?

Your Seller Profile page displays all of your seller listings and includes a listing search. Customers are directed to your profile when they click your seller name next to your listings.

Can I put my account on hold while I go on vacation?

Yes, you can do just that with the Listings Status feature.
