About Vendor Express

With Amazon Vendor Express, you can start selling your products to Amazon and expose them to hundreds of millions of customers worldwide. Amazon buys products directly from you and handles shipping costs, merchandising, customer service, and customer returns.

Vendor Express requires that you own the intellectual property rights for the products you sell to Amazon. If you do not own these rights, your products may still be eligible for other Amazon programmes, as long as your products do not violate any third party’s intellectual property rights. To determine your eligibility, please fill out this form.

The benefits of becoming a vendor on Vendor Express include:

  • No annual charge to join or participate in the programme.
  • Products appear to customers as Sold by Amazon.
  • Free shipping from your warehouse to Amazon.
  • Free product storage and order handling.
  • Products are eligible for Prime and free shipping to customers over a standard order threshold.
  • Access to Amazon Marketing Services and selling enhancements.

We'll sometimes request a minimum sample of free units of your product so that we can evaluate the demand from our customers before placing an initial purchase order. After your product sells, we may start issuing purchase orders. We request a limited number of samples as an investment in the programme. We understand that your products cost money, so we want you to know we are using them to build your Amazon product detail page and evaluate customer demand. For more information about sample orders, go to About Sample Orders.
