Prior approval may be required to list certain products in certain categories. See the Categories page for more information.

Yes. Amazon's payment fraud protection helps you eliminate fraudulent orders for your products.
Amazon has built a base of millions of satisfied customers by being responsive to their concerns and acting quickly to resolve problems. We extend this valuable customer trust to sellers through the A-to-z Guarantee program.
The A-to-z Guarantee Program is for situations where a customer never received a product or received a product that is materially different from what was ordered or expected. We ask customers to first contact the seller when they have a problem. If the seller fails to resolve the problem, the customer can file an A-to-z claim. When Amazon receives the claim, we send the seller an automated email detailing the claim and requesting basic information from the seller about the order and the fulfillment process. Amazon will then determine how the claim will be settled, which may include reimbursement of the order to the customer, at the seller's expense..

Professional Sellers can switch to an Individual selling plan at any time by changing account settings.

Amazon notifies you by email or text message when you receive an order. You can choose either notification method in your account settings.
The Buy Box is the box on a product detail page where customers begin the purchase process by adding items to their shopping carts. A key feature of the Amazon platform is that the same product can have multiple sellers. If more than one seller offers the same product in "New" condition, they may compete for the Buy Box for that product.
To compete for Buy Box placement, sellers must demonstrate that they are consistently creating a great buying experience for customers. We use performance-based criteria to determine your Buy Box eligibility and placement status. Buy Box eligible listings that do not win the Buy Box are eligible for placement in the More Buying Choices box. Amazon does not guarantee placement in either of these locations..
