Setting Up Your Amazon.co.uk Seller Account
If you've already set up an Amazon.co.uk Seller Account, your Amazon.co.uk Seller Account was set up automatically when you entered your bank account details. If you opted to enter your bank account details later, you must enter them before your Amazon.co.uk Seller Account can be activated. We take our customer's privacy very seriously and all your financial and personal details will be stored safely and are covered by our Security Guarantee.
Sellers are unable to collect any payments until they have set up an Amazon.co.uk Seller Account. To become payments-enabled click View your Seller Account under the Get Paid heading in Your Seller Account.
Once you've submitted your details, you'll usually be notified of your approval for Amazon.co.uk Marketplace within a few minutes. In unusual cases, confirmation may take up to 24 hours.
You can now register to sell on Amazon.co.uk if you are resident in one of the countries supported by Amazon. Furthermore, if you do not have a trading history with us, a PIN (personal identification number) will be provided to you during the registration process for which you need a local phone number. You will be asked to verify your PIN using our automated system before we complete your registration. We can only transfer funds from your Seller Account to your bank account when your registration is complete.
Why do you need my bank account information?
All of the proceeds from your sales will be transferred directly into your bank account via a BACS (Bankers Automated Clearing Service) deposit. This is the most efficient method of paying you. All information you enter on our seller registration pages is encrypted through our use of a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) service. If you ever need to change or update your bank account information you may do so via our website. To change your bank account information:
All future Amazon.co.uk Marketplace transactions will be submitted to this new bank account. Please be aware that this change will not affect any current transactions.
Please note that once you have entered or amended your bank account details, it will not be possible to request a settlement until 14 days have passed. After that time, you should be able to request a settlement as often as once every 24 hours. Please note that 6 to 10 working may be needed for the funds to reach your bank account.
Why do you need my credit card information?
If your Seller Account balance exceeds GBP 25.00 your monthly Pro-merchant subscription fee will be deducted from that balance. If not, the remaining difference will be deducted from your credit card.
What if my application is declined?
Your decision on whether or not you chose to enter your bank account information at the time of registration has no bearing on the acceptance of your application. However, due to the proprietary nature of the Amazon.co.uk Marketplace application process, we cannot share the reasons for failed applications, nor can we detail the criteria by which applications are evaluated.
Our system does not accept repeat applications. Since all sellers on Amazon.co.uk must be registered with Amazon.co.uk Marketplace in order to list items on our website, failed Amazon.co.uk Marketplace applicants cannot list items for sale with us.
Please use the e-mail address associated with your Amazon.co.uk Seller account.
