How to Register a Coffee Business on Amazon


You’ve set up your coffee business, and now you’re ready to start a new venture on Amazon. If you’re going to sell on Amazon, you’ll need to set up a seller account. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to create an account with Amazon as well as some tips for making sure that your coffee business gets off to a good start.

Business Structure

It’s crucial to select the correct business structure for your Amazon coffee business. There are several options available, and choosing the right one can have a dramatic impact on your tax obligations and legal liability. Each business structure has its own pros and cons, so you should consult with an attorney or accountant before making a decision.

The most common forms of business structures in the United States include:

  • Sole Proprietorship (for independent merchants)
  • Partnership (for multiple merchants)
  • Corporation (for larger businesses)
  • S Corporation (for small corporations that want to avoid double taxation by limiting their liability exposure)

Register your Business Name

Check if your business name is available. You can do this through the Amazon Brand Registry. After you’ve checked to see if your business name is available, follow these steps:

  • Go to Seller Central and sign in with your seller account. If you don’t have an account yet, create one by clicking Create Seller Account near the top-right corner of the page or selecting “Sell on Amazon” under “Sell Your Services” from the menu bar on any product page
  • Click Settings in the left navigation panel of Seller Central and select Business Name Registration from under “Registration Information.” On this page, click “Register” next to “Register A Business Name” at the bottom of this section

Get a Tax ID Number

You’ll need a tax ID number to register your business on Amazon. A Tax ID Number, or TIN, is a nine-digit number that identifies a taxpayer within the US.

You can get your own TIN from the IRS by filling out Form SS-4 and mailing it in. You’ll need to fill out Section G of the form if you are starting an LLC or S Corporation—these types of businesses require a separate TIN from individuals (who use their social security numbers).

Finances and Tax Paperwork

You will need to register for sales tax and income tax. This is a simple process, but it requires you to determine which city and state your business is located in. It’s also important that you file your taxes on time and pay them properly every year. You should get an accountant if possible, but at least make sure that you are filing all of the paperwork required by the IRS or other governing bodies (the process differs depending on where you live).

Register for an Amazon Seller Account

The first thing you’ll need to do is set up your Amazon account. This can be done by logging into your personal account and visiting the Seller Central homepage, which will have a link for creating an account with Amazon. From there, you’ll need to fill out all of the information required by Amazon. This includes your name, address, and contact information for your business.

This is done in Amazon Seller Central and involves creating a lot of information about your company:

  • Business Name
  • Address (electronic)
  • Tax ID Number (EIN)

List your Coffee Business

  • Add a New Product:

When you add a new product, it will be added to your account’s catalog. You can then use this item as an option for any of your listings in the future.

  • Create listing manually:

This option allows you to create custom listings that don’t already exist in Amazon’s database and doesn’t require any products from another seller or a third-party provider (eBay). If there is no existing offer on Amazon, it may take up to three days before we can list your product(s).

  • Add a new listing from an existing product:

This option allows you to create listings for products that are already in Amazon’s database. You can use this option if you have products that could be sold on Amazon but don’t have your own seller account yet.


Registering a new business is a complicated process, but it’s important to know that Amazon requires all sellers to be registered and in good standing with the appropriate state or local government. Otherwise, you won’t be able to sell on Amazon.

At the initial stage, you’ll need your company name, tax ID number (EIN), and insurance certificate before registering your business on Amazon. You will also need the following information:

  • Your financial information: bank account details and credit card information
  • A physical address for your business
  • What kind of business structure do you wish to use: sole proprietorship, LLC (limited liability company), S corporation, or C corporation?
  • Your legal status: if you’re a U.S. citizen
