Ever wanted to spread your wings and see the world? Of course, this isn’t a travel blog, I’m talking about selling your Amazon items internationally.
The good news is, it’s easier than you might think!
When it comes to growing their Amazon businesses, few sellers expand beyond their home countries.
This is because they imagine selling overseas as being overly-complicated but in reality, Amazon has made the whole thing rather easy.
So, find your passport, I’m going to tell you two ways you can start selling your Amazon products in other countries now.
Both methods allow you to sell in other countries via FBA so you won’t incur astronomical shipping costs and you can preserve your products’ reviews across all marketplaces.
Sounds good, yea?
- Amazon Global Selling
This is my preferred method, purely because it’s so simple.
Amazon has been running Amazon Global Selling (AGS) for a couple of years now and it makes it super easy to sell in any of Amazon’s 13 marketplaces globally from one integrated seller account.
It’s a great way to scale your business with little effort.
The best part is that you don’t have to worry about international shipping and long-distance customer service. Amazon handles your shipments in the new country by FBA, so you can hit the ground running and start selling immediately.

- Creating a seller account in the new country
Another method is to set up another seller account in another country, copy the ASIN number of your products and enter them in your new seller account.
Let’s say I’m selling puppy beds in Amazon.au and I want to branch out see if I can sell them in the USA.
Firstly, I need to create a seller account for the USA and pay their seller fees. Some marketplaces are linked, for example, if you sell on Amazon.au, you get access to Amazon Japan. If you sell on Amazon UK, you get access to the rest of Europe.
But as Australia isn’t linked to the USA, I’ll need to create a new seller account.
Once I’ve done that, I‘ll take the ASIN number from my product.
And enter it here so that Amazon can find the item.
And that’s it, now I can start selling my puppy beds in the USA.
If you fancy starting an international business and selling your items overseas, I highly recommend the first option, Amazon Global Selling.
Amazon has made it easier than ever for us to expand our businesses abroad whilst handling the nitty-gritty (shipping, customer service etc.) for us.
I love hearing about Amazon sellers venturing into unknown territories and selling abroad, so let me know how you get on!
Hugs and kisses!
