Step-wise Guide to Selling Books Online

Step 1

Register as an Amazon Seller

To create your seller account on Amazon you will need to submit the following details to:
Your PAN information
An active bank account for payments

Step 2

Listing your products

Next, you will need to display your products on Amazon for customers to purchase. To do this, you need to list your products from your Seller Central account by either:
If the book is available on, you can add a new offer by matching it to the existing product or by scanning the product barcode or ISBN through the Seller App
If you have a new brand of book that is not currently listed on, you will need to create a new listing by uploading product images and fill in the details

Step 3

Deliver to customer

Once your product receives an order, you will need to deliver it to the customer. There are many ways to do this:
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)
Amazon takes care of storing, packing, and delivering your products. Your products also get the added FBA benefit of gaining the Prime Badge.
Easy Ship (ES)
You store and pack your products, Amazon delivers it to your customer’s doorstep
Self-Ship (SS)
You store, pack, deliver your products
We do not have the knowledge or the manpower to reach even the remotest of areas where people would want to order from us. So we used to miss out on all those orders a lot.
But Amazon has the expertise and infrastructure to do so
