Amazon is the most dominant shopping platforms in the world. Because of this, the customer base and potential is endless. In total, Amazon Australia’s sales are expected to reach around $10 billion Australian dollars in 2026. So if you have an e-commerce business or are wanting to start one, setting up an Amazon store could be one of the best ideas to increase your sales and take your business to the next level. In this blog I will who you how to set up an Amazon store.

Steps on how to set up an Amazon Store

1. Sign up for a professional sellers account

This first step to getting started is of course, creating an account with Amazon as a seller.

You can sign up with the Amazon link here.

 

2. Enrol in Amazon’s brand registry and review the eligibility requirements

You then have to register your brand with Amazon but first, you need to also review the eligibility requirements.

Your brand must have an active registered trademark in each country you wish to enrol your store or have a pending trademark application filed through Amazon IP Accelerator.
You must also have the brand name or logo displayed on the product or packaging of the items you are selling.

To get started with enrolling your brand, click here.

For Amazon Australia you will see the following supporting documents that will need to be submitted:

  • A copy of your trademark registration in Australia.
  • Your logo.
  • A list of product categories that you wish to sell under.
  • A list of countries where your brand’s products are manufactured and distributed.

3. Submit your enrolment and sit tight until Amazon reaches out to you to verify further

Amazon opens up a wide new market place to sell your products to consumers. It can take a little while to get your enrolment approved, so use this time to organise high quality product photos so that you can position your products to sell in the best light.

Also do your research with other brands similar to yours in your category and see how they have laid out their products, pricing and descriptions in their Amazon store and make sure you have all the information that you need to lay out your shop online.

Benefits of having an Amazon store

The main benefit for wanting to set up an Amazon store is to drive shopper engagement and sales, but here’s a list of benefits for why you should set up an Amazon store.
