First of all, you will need to share your contact details (phone number, postal address, full name and email address). Next, you should have and share the Permanent account number (PAN) for business. The third requirement is to share your ID/GTS number. Finally, you must provide your Bank Account Details.

  2. After that, you should download the NIS template. There is a guide in it which will help you add the right data.
  3. When you complete the template, contact Amazon’s Seller Support Team. At this stage, you should create ASINs. In this way, you will learn how to create a catalog of your furniture and how to add these pieces of furniture in your online store.

  5. Go to Settings and enter the information about Privacy Policy, Shipping and About Seller.
  6. When you complete all these steps, you can start your online store.
