Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to the frequently asked questions about selling on Amazon India.
How can I start selling in India?
You can start selling in India through FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) model by partnering with Amazon's Service Provider Network. You can reach out to the Amazon team through email ( or click on the form link below to get started.
I heard that there are multiple modes for entering Amazon India? What kinds of seller qualifications are needed to enter?
Two entry modes have been opened in India: Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and Merchant Fulfillment Network (MFN).

If you choose FBA, you will need the qualifications of an Indian company with a local Indian holding more than 51% of the shares OR you can obtain Indian company qualifications by partnering with service providers OR setting up your own business in India.

Alternatively, you can partner with Distributors as well to expand your business in India.
Do I need to partner with an Indian company to sell in India?
Yes, to sell with FBA Program, you would need to partner with a service provider in India. Amazon will connect you with a service provider to get you started. Alternatively, an Indian distributor can also be used to sell on
How is FBA different in India than other stores?
Indian regulations do not permit global entities to engage in direct B2C (business to customer) retail. Amazon assists brands by connecting them with an Indian third-party company to help with listing their selection in the FBA model.

Outside of this model, international brands can launch on FBA by:
(1) setting their own entity in line with the FDI norms, or
(2) partnering with an Import service provider/distributor/Amazon in an outright purchase model.
I heard that the Singapore or another country Brand Registry can be used to protect goods in Amazon India?
Generally, if sellers want to apply for brand registration in India, they need to apply for trademark registration in India first (the application time is usually 9 months to one year). In order to protect the rights and interests of sellers who have created brands on other sites but have not registered their trademarks in India yet, we currently allow sellers to authorize the brand registration of other Amazon countries on Amazon India through the form of "role assignment".

The advantages of successful authorization are:
1. Brand protection, prevent and combat counterfeit goods;
2. Allow sellers to build graphic detail pages, along with Brand stores.
If sellers want to protect the brands fundamentally, they would still need to apply for trademark registrations in India.
Which products need to undergo category review in India?
Sellers need to go through category review while creating a listing to complete the creation. For details, please follow the guidelines on the listing creation page to complete. Sellers are usually asked to provide purchase invoices, brand authorization and other information.

For the specific procedures, sellers can reach out to their Amazon account manager or contact Seller Support for guidance on how to get approval for any restricted categories.
What are the charges/fees for selling on Amazon?
You will have to pay a referral fee and closing fee on each item sold on For all products, a percentage of the total sales price paid by the buyer (including item price, any shipping or gift-wrap charges charged by the seller) is deducted as a referral fee.
