In this tutorial we get hands on and take you through the steps of registering a new account on the Amazon marketplace. In our example we use the Amazon UK site as that is where we are based but you would pick your native Amazon site.
The Different Amazon Sites
As we mention above the video tutorial we have recorded is us following through the pages on the Amazon UK site however the process will be very similar no matter where you are based.
To make this as easy as possible for you we have included all of the links to the main Amazon sites to get you to the correct Seller Central page. So just click the link below which corresponds to the marketplace you want to set up your account on.

As you will see in the video above there are a number or requirements that you will need to have in order to register with Amazon.
If you are in the UK (Or most other European countries):
“You will need to provide a valid credit card, phone number, and tax information. You will also need to provide a VAT number. Although you can complete your registration without a VAT number, you will be required to provide one in order to sell in Europe.”
If you are in the USA:
“You will need to provide a valid credit card, phone number, and tax information. For taxes, you will be required to go through an online step-by-step interview that will determine whether you will need to complete a W-9 form (as a U.S. taxpayer) or a W-8BEN (as a non-U.S. taxpayer).”
If you are opening account on one of the other Amazon accounts globally, then check out this link here to find out what you will need: http://services.amazon.co.uk/services/global-selling/registration-requirements.html
So with that said follow us along on your appropriate Amazon seller central site and register an account with us now. Then next up we will be showing you the seller dashboard for the first time.
