The answers to your questions will vary slightly depending upon where you plan to sell. So, do you plan to sell on Amazon in the UK or the USA? Most people sell on Amazon.com in the USA even if they are from another country like the UK or Australia (that’s where I’m from). But of course, you can sell in the UK if you want but the rewards are much smaller.
For the moment, I’ll assume that you plan to sell on Amazon.com in the USA.
Firstly, you are setting up a business so you need to think about it that way from the word go and structure things accordingly.
This means that you need a Professional selling account on Amazon. You mention that you have an Individual selling account in the UK. This is not good enough and if you’ll need to upgrade it to a Professional account if you plan to sell in the UK on amazon.co.uk. To sell in the USA on amazon.com, you’ll need a Professional account there. As Isaac said in the video, set up your account just 1 to 2 weeks before you are shipping your goods. If you set the account up too early, you’ll just have to pay extra monthly fees for an account that is not being used yet.
The video “setting up an Amazon seller account” is mostly presented from the perspective of a US-based seller selling on Amazon.com. For sellers from other countries like you and me, the concepts are exactly the same but a couple details vary. I’ll try to address them here:
I hope all that helps and was clear.
Please ask any questions you want to and I’ll try my best to help.
