Questions and answers to master Amazon Vendor Central in a professional way
How to become a Vendor on Amazon?
Companies or individuals cannot register themselves on the Vendor Central portal, unlike the Seller Central portal. Access to Vendor Central is through an invitation sent by Amazon, which the seller will accept or reject.
At this point, the negotiation process between the company and Amazon will begin to define the terms in which the former will provide products to the latter (there is usually not much room for negotiation unless the company is a large and influential brand).
Some of the characteristics that companies invited by Amazon usually have are:
Existing brands that have high demand on Amazon
Companies that are gaining a lot of visibility with their products
Exhibitors at fairs and trade shows with products that promise to achieve a high level of sales
At The WOW patio, we help you achieve good results on Amazon Seller so that you can become part of Vendor.
How to log in Amazon Vendor and what functions can I perform?
To log in to Amazon Vendor once the seller has their invitation, they only need to access the website that corresponds to their location:
- Spain: vendorcentral.amazon.es
- USA: vendorcentral.amazon.com
- Canada: vendorcentral.amazon.ca
- UK: vendorcentral.amazon.co.uk
- Germany: vendorcentral.amazon.de
- Italy: vendorcentral.amazon.it
- France: vendorcentral.amazon.fr
- Netherlands: vendorcentral.amazon.nl
- Poland: vendorcentral.amazon.pl
- Sweden: vendorcentral.amazon. se
- EAU: vendorcentral.amazon.ae
Later, the email address will be entered (if the company already had an Amazon Seller account, the same one will be used) and then the verification code that Amazon has sent.
The functions are different from those that a company with a Seller Central account can perform, since in Vendor, the end customer is not the consumer, but Amazon. In short, the seller has to remain attentive to:
- Managing the orders that the marketplace makes to them and controlling the amount of stock they have at all times
- Staying aware of the account’s performance, customer feedback, and how their sales are evolving or not
- Despite the fact that the stock becomes part of Amazon, everything related to product information, images, descriptions, advertising or the creation of the Store, is part of the company’s work
Keeping track of payments and invoices as they would if they were selling the product directly to the end customer.
When are the orders placed?
Purchase orders from Amazon are received several times a week, although if the product becomes increasingly popular on the platform, Amazon may place a greater number of orders during the week.
Amazon will always try to have an optimal amount of stock in its logistics centers, that is, one that allows it to supply all orders and have a little extra in case of an increase in sales. This extra amount of items will not be too large so as not to risk storing units that do not end up selling.
Can a company use Amazon Vendor and Amazon Seller?
Yes. Using both platforms to sell the products allows the company to minimize risks by diversifying the sales of the products. For example, if Amazon ever runs out of stock, the company can continue to fulfill orders. However, this is not a recommendation in itself.
With an Amazon Vendor account, the company will increase the visibility of its products as it has many more possibilities of obtaining the buy box. In addition, it leaves the sales and after-sales management in the hands of Amazon. This allows the seller to focus on other products that are only available through Seller, for example.
¿Cuál de las dos plataformas es mejor?
It all depends on the company’s goals. We can establish two differentiations in a simple way:
- If the company wants to continue to have control over the product’s price, be able to establish offers when it deems convenient and, in short, be the total owner of the product, it should use Seller Central.
- On the other hand, if it is a product that does not require much maintenance because it has good results and the company simply needs someone else to manage orders, storage, and distribution, the best option is to use Vendor Central. Additionally, this is the most appropriate option if one wants to create a large business.
