Managing and removing the other sellers that will list against product pages is a multi-step process that can seem challenging for brands on Amazon. Even if you’re just getting started in the marketplace, there are a few tested methods to keep more control of who, where, and how your products get sold on Amazon.
Do you know the difference between Seller Central and Vendor Central? When you look to begin selling your brand’s products on Amazon, you have a few options as to which platform you’d prefer using. Both of these two platforms have their unique pros and cons, and come with other different advantages, beyond pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns, that could be incredibly valuable based on your brand’s needs and goals.
Amazon offers two primary modes of selling products on their platform: the Vendor program, also known as 1st Party or 1P, and as a Marketplace seller, known as 3rd Party or 3P. Both have their pros and cons, but the good news is that you can have both a Vendor and Seller Central account on Amazon.
