For taxes, you will be required to go through an online step-by-step interview that will help you to 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).

Selling on Amazon & Fulfillment by Amazon

  • When customers order your products on Amazon.com, you can either choose to fulfil those orders on your own or use Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA).
     
  • If you fulfil orders on your own, you will fulfil orders from India when a customer buys your products on Amazon.com
     
  • With FBA, you store your products in Amazon's fulfilment centres, and Amazon will pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.

Product categories and approvals

Open Categories

  • Approval is not required to sell products in open categories
     
  • Sellers may be required to meet special requirements in order to list some products
     
  • Both Individual and Professional Sellers can offer products in these categories, except where noted

Categories Requiring Approval

  • Products in categories requiring approval can be listed only with specific permission from Amazon. Only sellers with a Professional Selling Plan subscription can sell in these categories
  • Amazon limits access to sell in these categories to help ensure that sellers meet standards for product and listing quality as well as other category-specific requirements
     
  • These standards help Amazon customers have confidence when buying in any category

Payments
