6.2 How To Create an Amazon Professional Seller Account

Before you start selling on Amazon you will need to register as a seller. Getting started is easy. All you need to do is visit the Seller Central link for the Amazon site where you want to sell and registering an account.

Professional versus Private Seller Account

In markets where you have a choice between setting up a professional or private seller account, you need to choose professional. The private account doesn't support Amazon MWS (Marketplace Web Service), which Codisto LINQ uses to manage the integration. 

Amazon Regions

Amazon Sites are grouped by region. For example an account on any of the European sites will give you access to list on all sites in that region. For access to sell in other regions, additional registrations will be required.
