Can I set Up an Amazon Japan Seller Account in English?
Yes. Setting up an Amazon Japan seller account is easy. The process is very similar to setting up an account on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. Amazon.co.jp offers the online seller registration process in both English and Japanese.
The process will take you less than 15 minutes. And once you have set up your account, you can choose English to manage your account in Seller Central.
What is required?
When registering for a seller central account, be sure to have the following information available:
- Your business name, address and contact information (This does not have to be a Japanese address)
- Valid e-mail address
- Valid internationally-chargeable credit card
How do I manage my selling account?
Just like on Amazon.com, your Seller Central account is where you’ll manage all aspects of selling on Amazon Japan with Fulfillment by Amazon. Seller Central can be displayed in English as well as Japanese, so adding product information, changing pricing, responding to customer feedback and so on is easy.
Once you have registered you can create your product listings. If you require your product listings to be translated into Japanese we can help you with that. We offer a done-for-you Amazon listing copywriting service.
Do Amazon Offer Support to Sellers in English?
Yes, Amazon Japan offers support in English in Seller Central via email or phone support.
What is the Cost?
Amazon offers two selling plans – Individual vs Professional
Professional – suitable for amazon.com and amazon.co.uk sellers wanting to expand their business
The Professional selling plan is available for a JPY4,900 monthly subscription fee plus per-item referral fees, which vary by category. Some categories are available only for professional sellers. Only professional sellers can add new products to the Amazon catalog. Additional fees apply when you use Fulfillment by Amazon to pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for your products.
Individual – only suitable if you are living in Japan
If you plan to sell fewer than 50 items a month, the Individual plan may be best for you. There is no monthly subscription fee. Instead, Individuals pay JPY100 per item sold plus referral fees, which vary by category.
First 3 Months Free
Amazon Japan is currently offering the first 3 months at no cost for Professional sellers who use online registration.
