If your item is not listed on Amazon you need to create a new listing the only way to do that is getting a pro account which will cost you. Selling an item that is listed already is free however (minus selling fees)

It may be worth it to register for the pro account. If you only sell 20 items a month that comes out to only a little over 1 per item sold. Just include that in your bottomline costs and it should barely effect your profit margins.

I know little about Amazon. I have been on it for 18 months and I have never taken more than 100 per month off of it. Probably because I don't know how to work it but I stick with the 28 per month because in that 18 months I have only had one month where I actually lost money -

Yes, you need to create a pro account. Depending on what catagory you are going to list in you still will need an sku# to list even as a Pro Merchant. You can easily get that sku though and begin to list in all catagories.

I have to agree with that - sometimes being ignorant and feeling your way can produce very interesting results

i was selling something the other day, couldn't find the item by name but eventually found it by sku. the item sold the next day. i was the only one selling it. i am curious whether someone can 'watch' this item and see when it comes up for sale. i do not know amazon well but i would have to think this sale was because of that rather than creating a new item

You cannot watch an item like you can for Ebay- but you CAN put an item in your shopping cart, and when it is sold, it then moves out of your cart and just creates a link to click on to see if any other sellers have it.

I had a pro account (USA) and in my case it was $40 a month, so as long as I sold 40 items or more a month, it was worth it.

I am not sure if once the item sells that you put in your cart (and there is no more left) if when you restock it then says that person has it in stock. But I do use the feature all the time on competitors so I can know when they change their price and how fast the item is selling, etc.
