How to Register a Shipping Company on Amazon


Amazon allows you to register your shipping company as a merchant. There is no cost to register, but there are a few requirements that must be met before you can start shipping on Amazon.

Create an Amazon User ID

To register a shipping company on Amazon, you will need to create an Amazon user ID and password. Your user ID should be unique and easy for you to remember. You can change it later if needed, but try not to make it too generic (like “shipping” or “package”). Your password should also be strong and secure. Choose something that’s difficult for others to guess.

Once you have created your account, Amazon will send you an email confirmation with further instructions on how to access the site’s dashboard.

Choose a Registration Option

  • You can choose to register as a domestic or international seller. Domestic sellers only sell their products in the United States, while international sellers may sell their products globally.
  • If you’re a small, medium or large seller you’ll be charged different fees for shipping services depending on what size company you are.

Enter Required Information

The next step is to enter your company name, address, phone number and email address.

  • Company Name: Enter the name of your company
  • Company Address: Enter the physical location where you will be shipping from. This should be a street address (not a PO Box) that matches your business license so that Amazon can verify it as an operational storefront or office for the company listed in their database
  • Phone Number: Enter the phone number for this particular location where you will be shipping from and make sure it’s accurate. If you don’t have one yet, use Google Voice or another virtual number service until then.
  • Email Address: Enter an email address associated with one of those virtual numbers mentioned above.

Create your Shipping Template

To create a shipping template, you will need to set up the following:

  • Shipping account. To create a shipping template, you must have an Amazon seller account and be registered for the FBA program
  • Shipping profile. All sellers using Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) must enter their required information into their Seller Central account before adding a new product listing

The first step in creating your shipping template is entering all of the necessary information into your Seller Central account before adding new listings.

Review your Plan Details

After you’ve completed the registration process, you can review your plan details by clicking on “Manage Shipping Plan” in the top navigation bar and selecting Shipping Plans from the drop-down menu.

If you need to add or remove services, you can do so by contacting Amazon support. If you have any questions regarding this article or need help registering a shipping plan with Amazon, please contact us today!


As a rule, Amazon requires that you have a business license and insurance. You must also have a physical address in the US that is not shared by another company. You will need to provide proof of your bank account and phone number, as well as documentation proving that you have both the means to ship packages and the ability to receive them at your location. Additionally, Amazon only accepts applications from companies with an established business presence in the United States.


The process of registering a shipping company on Amazon is not complicated, but it can take some time to complete all the steps. Once you’ve completed registration, you should be able to start using your account right away. This means that you can start making shipments to customers, who will receive them via Amazon’s preferred carriers and services.
