Wuhan Star Sets Sail – What are the requirements to become an Amazon cross-border e-commerce seller?
Now Amazon’s cross-border e-commerce industry is in a hot state, and now you can enjoy policy benefits and platform dividends when you join Amazon. Although there are many sellers entering Amazon every year, they are far from saturated. Registering an Amazon store is free and requires no deposit. After the store officially begins operations, the platform will charge a monthly rent of $39.99 per month.
Registering an Amazon store, the information you need to prepare
Individuals cannot register for an Amazon store and require a business license. Xingqihang generally recommends sellers to register business stores, and can directly register a "business company" business license or a license with a sales nature. Simply put, if there are words such as "sales" and "import and export" in the business scope, you can open a store without date and capital requirements. And make sure that your business license is valid for more than 45 days, so you can use this business license to register an Amazon store.
Legal person ID
An ID card is necessary for opening a store. The name on the ID card must be the same as the name of the legal representative on the business license, the name on the ID card should match the name on the registered Amazon account, and the applicant must be at least 18 years old, and the ID card is valid.
Dual Currency Credit Card
Dual currency credit cards are also known as payment credit cards according to their primary role. Before using a credit card that can make international payments (VISA or MaterCand preferred VISA), please confirm that the card has the payment function in the currency of the country of sale. If you open multiple shopping malls at the same time, it is recommended to use a credit card that supports multi-currency payment, and confirm that the credit card has not expired and has sufficient credit limit, and there are no restrictions on online or mail order payments.
Information to be provided when registering a store
Use a contact method that has not been registered with Amazon, mainly an email address. It is recommended that sellers use NetEase email; the phone number of the legal person and the address of the company are also required.
As mentioned earlier, the payment credit card, the seller also needs a collection bank card, which is mainly used for collection. Since the payment received for products sold by Amazon are in foreign currencies (USD, JPY, EUR, etc.), it cannot be directly converted to RMB and transferred to our domestic bank account. At this time, you need a transfer account that supports foreign currency collection.
