How to Create an Amazon Seller Account for Free (Save $39.99 Per Month)

If you are looking to make an Amazon account to be become an Amazon Seller, but you don’t want to pay any fees right away, you’re in the right place.

In this post, I’m going to share how to create an Amazon seller account for free. I’ve been getting at least a few emails per week from individuals interested in selling on Amazon, but can’t find the place to sign up for a free Amazon account.

The account type that will let you get started selling on Amazon for free is called the “individual seller account.” This account type has some limitations as compared to the account that has a monthly fee (known as the professional seller account), but it’s perfect for someone who wants to get started without spending any money right away. You can read about the difference between the two seller account types in this post.

Once you’ve decided that you definitely want to go with the individual seller account, then all that’s left to do is sign up.

You can sign up for an individual seller account on this page. Once you are on that link, scroll part way down and click the button next to the red arrow to “sign up to become an individual seller. Note that Amazon updates this page from time to time, so the link might look like this:

Or, like this:

Either way, you’re looking for a link that says “sign up to become an individual seller.” If the page looks a bit different, use the “find function” to identify the sign up link. You can do that by holding down control on your keyboard, then press “F” so “Ctrl +F” and you’ll be able to do a search. Search for “individual” and scroll through the results and one should be the link to sign up as an individual seller.

After clicking that link you will be walked through the process of setting up your Amazon Seller account. As you can see as you go through the process, there is no monthly fee.

That’s all there is to it. For some reason, the link to sign up as an individual is somewhat hard to find. Hopefully finding this post helped to simplify the process of signing up for you.

After you’ve setup your seller account you’re going to need to find some items to sell. I have a couple of recommendations for where to start. The first is to checkout my blog post: How to Sell on Amazon for Beginners – The Ultimate Guide. That post walks through step by step my recommendations for new sellers on Amazon.

  1. Hi Ryan,
    Thank you so much for everything you do!

    I was trying to avoid the fee and clicked on the link you provided but it still took me to the paid service for sellers, wanting to charge $39.99.

    1. Hi Gwendolyn,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Once you got to the page on Amazon, did you click the link to sign up as an individual seller? Just want to confirm, as there are multiple links once you are on Amazon’s page.

      Best Regards,
