Finding Your Amazon Marketplace Seller ID
Click for a tool that extracts your Seller ID from your % feedback link
Before using ScoutPal services (demonstration, trial, or subscription)
you'll need to identify yourself as an
Amazon USA Marketplace seller, with a Seller ID and a
bona fide USA Marketplace Seller Page URL*. All registered Amazon sellers have
a Seller ID. Your Seller ID is embedded in the "% feedback" link that's on any of
your listings. It's how Amazon identifies you*,
so it's a good thing to know!
Here's an example:
positive over the past 12 months. (4,946 total ratings)
In Stock. Ships from TX, United States. Expedited shipping available.
Right-click on the "% feedback" to copy the link
(shortcut/address), then paste it in a text program like notepad to
view the link's complete URL address. You'll
see something like this inside it: "&seller=A1JRQZSZNWXK8W"
-- your ID being the unique collection of letters and numbers after the
equals sign. Or, click for a tool that extracts your Seller ID from your % feedback link.
If you don't already have an Amazon seller account with something listed
for sale on Amazon, it's easy: just go to www.amazon.com and lookup
any book that you own. Then look on the right side of the book's description
or offering pages for a "sell" button that looks like this:
Click on the "sell" button and finish the steps to list your book for
sale. When finished, you'll have your own Amazon Seller ID.
You will also need to upgrade your seller account to "Pro Merchant" in
order to be
eligible for Amazon's Marketplace Web Services (MWS)
which will allow your use of pro merchant and 3rd party seller tools like ScoutPal. If
you feel that you're not quite ready to start selling books, just set the
price of your item high enough to make it worthwhile. Why not? (Amazon's maximum is $10,000!) The worst thing that could happen is
you get good money just for mailing a book!
* Your Amazon Seller Page URL
Once you know your Seller ID, you can go directly to your Feedback page
by browsing to a URL composed like this:
Of course, you'll replace the "sellerID" part with your
particular Seller ID! This web address exists in Seller ID form for every established Amazon Marketplace seller.
