Amazon Marketplace is owned and operated by Amazon.com as an e-commerce platform used by third-party sellers. Third-party sellers can range from small one-person operations selling unique, personalized items to large corporations selling a multitude of products, and everything that fits in between.
Amazon Marketplace allows sellers to put their products up for sale, available to the millions of buyers that buy from Amazon every day. The inventory and fulfillment of these products can be maintained by Amazon (FBA) or by the merchant (FBM). Merchants must list the items for sale, including pictures, descriptions, and pricing. Sellers just starting out with Amazon must create a seller account before listing items for sale.
Amazon Marketplace has two Seller Plans available. The first is the Amazon Individual Seller which offers a risk-free way to get started. There is no monthly fee for this plan and sellers are only charged 99 cents for each product sold. It includes 40 product listings per month. This plan does not allow sellers to add new products to Amazon nor does it give access to advanced account management features. That is where the second plan offer comes in to play, the Amazon Pro Seller Plan. This plan has a monthly fee of $39.99 with no fee per product sold. It offers unlimited product listings and sales, plus the ability to add new products to Amazon and access to account management features such as bulk product uploads and inventory management, just to name a couple.
