How to open an Amazon Seller Central Spain account
- Brands that want to use the marketplace to sell products to their end customers need to open an Amazon Seller Central account.
- To register, it is necessary to choose a subscription plan and complete the forms with information about the company, the seller and payments.
To access Amazon and start offering products through its platform, you need to have a registered professional account. Brands that want to offer products to end customers through the marketplace must open and manage it themselves through the Amazon Seller Central Spain platform.
Having a Seller account allows sellers to exercise full control over their stock, set prices for the products in their catalogue, manage their inventory in a more accessible way and choose between using their own logistics or Amazon’s logistics for storage and delivery.
In addition to these advantages, Sellers also control the supply side as they sell directly to the end customer, have access to a large number of promotions, can view transactions and have more information about the terms of purchase that their customers ultimately accept.
What steps do I have to take to open an Amazon Seller account?
The first thing to do is to register with Amazon Seller Central with a valid username and password. Please note that sellers who choose to register for the individual plan (limited to 40 items) pay 0.99 euros per sale. Meanwhile, those who choose to do so in the professional plan pay 39 euros per month, regardless of the total volume of sales.
Once the subscription plan has been decided, the registration of the account must be completed by providing all the required documentation, which should be prepared in advance. Amazon needs to know the phone number, email address and other company details such as contact details or VAT. In addition, it requires the seller’s passport or national identity card, the credit card for payment and the bank account to which the sales proceeds will be sent.
All the information is completed, in a guided way, by means of forms arranged in five tabs corresponding to: company information, seller information, payment information, additional information and the name of the shop.
Amazon validates the identity of the person acting as representative by means of a PIN code provided via SMS or an automated call. It also requires and verifies other documentation relating to the bank account, the deposit method for open marketplaces or the company’s own incorporation, registration and domicile details.
Once all tabs are completed, the Amazon Seller Central interface can be accessed, although it will probably take some time to create product listings.
The US company examines all this data to assess whether the requirements are met and, if the company is validated by Amazon, it will be able to use the Seller Central portal to publish its catalogue, track and update inventory, access sales statistics and reports, manage payments, among other tasks.
It may happen that Amazon decides to block an account, that there are problems in completing the whole opening process or that the documentation provided is not correct. Nozama helps you to solve any situation so that you can start selling on Amazon.
