How to list on Amazon marketplace:

Type the name (or ISBN) of the item you want to sell to locate the correct product . If you're lucky, you may even get some results with Qmee installed and earn a little bit extra. On the right hand side, under the price to buy, you'll see a button that says “Sell yours here”. Click it and sign up for a seller account if you don't already have one, or log in if you do have one.


 Now select the condition of your item, notes about the condition,  add photos if you want*, the quantity you have to sell and select your price. *This is a new feature to the Amazon Marketplace, and it is one I haven't seen utilised. Personally I wouldn't bother unless you have a rare or signed item.


 Once you click through, you're shown the full amount you will receive if your item sells. It is at this point that you should decide whether you want to list your item at the price you've selected – taking into account the postage you'll be charged. Once you're happy with this, submit your listing and you'll receive a confirmation email. Your item is now listed until it sells or you make it inactive.

Amazon will now email you once your listing has sold. The final selling fees are 17.25% commission and a fee of 86p for each item that sells.  You have two business days to send your item, and you must confirm this in your seller account on Amazon. You can log in to your seller account to check your inventory – where you can easily change the price if you wanted to have the lowest price on Amazon.

  1. This sounds great! like a more friendly ebay 🙂
    Which one do you like most? ebay or amazon? I am an avid amazon buyer, so would prefer to sell there rather than ebay. Can I also ask if you need to pay to have an amazon market place account?
