Do I need an Amazon or eBay store subscription?

Listing items on Amazon or eBay using Codisto has the same requirements as listing products manually directly on Amazon or eBay except that it's much faster to list items and keep them updated.

eBay Account Requirements

To list on eBay, you just need an eBay account in good standing with Seller account enabled.

Although a store subscription is not required, it can often be a good idea.

The store subscriptions vary between regional eBay sites. Using eBay Australia as an example, data from  eBay Store Packages in July 2021:

eBay offer three eBay Store tiers - Basic, Featured and Anchor. Which one is right for you depends on how much you sell and how you plant to grow your business.  

Amazon Account Requirements

You need an Amazon Professional Seller account because Codisto needs access to your Amazon account via the MWS API (and Amazon only make this available on Professional Accounts, not Individual Accounts).  Amazon Professional Seller Accounts generally cost around $40 per month (currency dependent) payable directly to Amazon.  Note Amazon operates in 'Regions'.  You can sell on any Amazon site within the same region with a single Amazon Professional Account.  e.g. you can sell in US, Canada and Mexico with an Amazon US account.  But you would need another Amazon Europe Account to sell on the European sites.
