What is an Amazon VC account
Amazon VC (Vendor Central) account refers to Amazon's heavyweight supplier system. VC account is a platform launched by Amazon for suppliers. Compared with VE (Vendor Express), VC account has greater authority and can obtain more sales data on the Amazon platform in the background. Simply put, sellers sell products to Amazon through the Vendor Central platform, and Amazon is solely responsible for shipping, sales, customer service and after-sales.
VC Account Registration Conditions
The Amazon US station needs to complete the brand registration, but the European station does not need it. By reviewing the brand awareness and the performance of the 3P Seller account, it can be judged whether it can be qualified for registration and approval.
Unlike VE accounts, VC accounts are invitation-only, that is, you may be invited to register only if Amazon takes a fancy to your product. There are two main forms of registration:
buy ready made. However, unless there are abundant resources, there are very few ready-made VC accounts in the market. Apply for registration. This is a formal application with the real information that everyone has. The reason why many people do not do this is because the Amazon VC team never announces the review criteria, so many sellers have not heard from them after submitting the information.
To summarize the entry requirements:
VC accounts are invitation-only; AMAZON will only attract investment when it needs to expand its categories; the monthly turnover must exceed 1 million US dollars.
The Amazon VC account has complete functions, and suppliers can use the rich promotion tools in the system by themselves: the Merchandising module integrates Coupons, Promotions, Amazon Vine, A+ Detail Pages, Business Pricing Discounts and other high-authority promotions, whether these functions are seller accounts , or a Vendor Express account, nothing compares.
We can assist in completing the review, meet Amazon's review standards, and have a high probability of successfully entering VC.
