    Now I’m in Amazon seller central, and I’m just setting up a new shipping plan. So firstly you can choose to either create a new plan, or add an existing plan. Adding to an existing shipping plan means maybe you’ve got two products, you want to send them both in at the same time. When it comes to sending in the second product, you just click “add to an existing shipping plan” and it gives you the ability to choose an existing shipping plan that you’ve already set up. Otherwise, just create a new shipping plan. The ship from address here is where you put in your suppliers address. So just ask your supplier for what their address is, or it should have it on the invoice or on the website. Now if you’re just sending in the one type of product, you want a case packed product.
    Once your product is available for sale on Amazon, the next order of business is to get your first sale! The primary objective to getting the first few orders is to give your product a boost in it’s product ranking to start gaining organic visibility. New products on the site are generally buried in the search results. So it’s imperative to immediately get sales as soon as your product goes ‘live’ on the site.
    After answering additional seller information related questions and taking a short survey, you will have finished setting up your account. Congratulations! You can officially start selling on Amazon now!
