In Europe there are 7 different marketplaces for Amazon sellers: in the UK, in Germany, in France, in Spain, in Italy, in Poland and in the Czech Republic. Traders or private sellers on Amazon are given the opportunity to sell their own products right next to Amazon’s own ware. Offering a product on the Amazon Marketplace is as long free of charge as long as the particular product is not sold, the registration at the beginning is free as well. Traders will search for the offered products – regardless if they are new or used. The process of ordering is not different from the orderings directly from Amazon. Amazon just passes on the payments.
Note: never transfer money directly to a Amazon Marketplace seller! Only paying by direct debit or credit card is safeguarded by Amazon.
How can a seller find a product on the Amazon Marketplace?
In order to find the product, sellers can search either for the ISBN-Number if it is a book or for the ASIN of the article. If the articles of the Amazon Marketplace seller are not dispatched by Amazon, it is up to the seller to take care of the parcel and he is responsible for any questions. The description of the product and the pricing is up to the sellers as well. When a product is sold on the Amazon Marketplace, the seller has to pay a fee to Amazon.
