There are two plans to choose from if you want to start selling on Amazon – the Professional Plan and the Individual Plan. Let’s examine both to see the differences.
The Professional Plan costs $39.99, which is payable monthly. It is recommended for sellers who expect to have a medium to high volume in sales each month (40 or more items). In addition, you will be charged applicable selling fees on each sale.
With this plan, you enjoy a number of premium benefits and access to advanced tools, including the ability to sell products in more than 10 categories, sell in restricted categories, view order reports, advertising, use inventory tools, placement on product pages, and customization of shipping rates.
The Individual Plan is recommended for low-volume sellers who expect to ship less than 40 items per month, as well as for those who are still not sure what products they want to sell. With this plan, you are charged a flat fee of $0.99 for every item sold, as well as applicable selling fees. You won’t have access to advertising or most of the other advanced tools available with the Professional Plan.
