How to Register an Alcohol Business on Amazon


The internet has opened up a world of opportunities for businesses, and Amazon is one of the most popular online marketplaces. With millions of customers around the world, Amazon is a great platform for businesses to reach new customers and increase their sales.

Regardless of whether you’re a small-time homebrewer or a seasoned sommelier, you need to know how to sell alcohol on Amazon. It’s not as difficult as it sounds, just follow these steps and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a certified alcohol seller.

Is Selling Alcohol Legal in your State?

Before you can sell alcohol on Amazon, you need to make sure that it’s legal in your state. You should also check the laws of any states where you plan on shipping alcohol and make sure they allow shipping from warehouses within their borders.

To do this, you’ll need to look at the laws of each state individually. Do a Google search for “selling alcohol” and then add the name of your state. This will give you links that direct you to all relevant state regulations for selling alcohol at retail locations like supermarkets and convenience stores.

Obtain an Alcohol License

Before you can register your alcohol business on Amazon, you will need to obtain an alcohol license from your local government. This license will allow you to legally sell alcohol on Amazon, and it will also help protect you from any legal issues that may arise from selling alcohol. Depending on your location, you may need to apply for a special type of license in order to sell alcohol on Amazon. So if you don’t have one yet, that’s the first thing you should do!

If you want to sell alcohol on Amazon, you need to understand the regulations and how to apply them. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) regulates alcohol sales. The TTB is part of the U.S. Treasury Department, so it’s different from state regulatory agencies like your local liquor board or ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control).

Alcohol Delivery Agreement

To sell alcohol on Amazon, you’ll need to create an Alcohol Delivery Agreement. You can find it by going to Seller Central > Account > Your Applications and clicking on the Alcohol Delivery Agreement link. This agreement requires that you enter:

  • Your business name and contact information
  • A description of the items being sold
  • The quantity of each item (if applicable)
  • A description of the customer’s responsibilities when receiving your shipment

The Alcohol Delivery Agreement is just one part of registering your business with Amazon; other documents include a Privacy Notice, Brand Registry Application Form and Trademark Registration Application Form.

Create a Product Listing

Once you have set up your payment method, you can begin listing your products on Amazon. You will need to provide detailed descriptions of each product, including images and pricing information. You will also need to provide information about shipping and returns policies for your products. Once you create a product listing, Amazon will then review the product’s details and qualifications to determine whether or not it can be sold on their site

Product Shipping Laws

Once the product has been manufactured, packaged, and sent to Amazon in its original packaging, you can ship it to a customer. It is important that you are well-versed in the laws of shipping alcohol from one state to another. If you are not sure which laws apply, contact your state’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to enquire.


We hope this guide has given you a better understanding of how to sell alcohol on Amazon. It’s important to keep in mind that each state has its own regulations. Check with your local government before selling any alcohol products on the platform. For more information on selling alcohol on Amazon, contact us today!
