How are the products listed on Amazon?
At Amazon the volume offers are integrated within the standard article presentation that Amazon also uses for their direct deliveries. The customer therefore navigates to the desired product or uses the search function.
As a result, he goes to the product details page, where the customer decides whether to buy a private carrier from a merchant, Amazon direct delivery, or, if available.
Default seller account at Amazon
In order to be able to act as a business founder on the Amazon Marketplace, it is first necessary to sign up for the sales platform. The registration mask offers the possibility to choose between two salesman accounts.
The default seller account is recommended for vendors who want to offer only a few (few) items. This can be upgraded at any time to the larger professional seller's account.
Difference from professional seller account
A monthly basic fee of EUR 39,001 will then be charged to the seller, but the sales charge per item will then be reduced by EUR 0,99.
In addition, there are numerous functions for analyzing the sales statistics or for new items that have not been available at Amazon.
Services from Amazon at a glance
The different services that Amazon offers next to or as a supplement to the Marketplace, I have listed here in the overview again:
- If the potential merchant chooses his own distribution, ie he uses Amazon as a sales channel, but takes over the picking and shipping on his own, the payment processing via Amazon Payments is automatically applied.
- In addition, the merchant has the ability to use Amazon's fulfillment services, which means that the merchant has the option at any time to charge Amazon for warehousing and shipping. This extra can be paid to Amazon with a monthly storage fee, as well as a variable remuneration for picking and shipping.
- For operators of their own online shop Amazon offers the possibility to use their fulfillment services, also self-sufficient, without the Amazon as an additional sales channel.
- The possibility of integrating e-payment services into their own online shop for some operators is likely to be much more interesting. For example, Amazon takes the entire collection. All Amazon services mentioned can be limited to the German target market, but it is possible to extend it to the entire European market.
