Frequently asked questions

Who can sell on Handmade?
The Handmade store is available for Artisans to sell their handcrafted products to millions of Amazon customers all over the world. Amazon uses an application process to add new Artisans to the Handmade category to ensure customers are able to buy with confidence. Learn more about our Handmade guidelines here.
How do your fees work?
Joining Handmade, creating your shop, and listing products is free. When you make a sale, Handmade will deduct a 12% referral fee.

During registration, you will register with a Professional Selling plan that provides you with Handmade specific tools and support to grow your business. While the Professional Selling plan costs CAD $29.99 per month for an Amazon Seller, this monthly fee is waived for Handmade Artisans. Learn more about our fees here.
What do I need to do to create a Handmade shop?
When you're approved to sell your handcrafted goods, we’ll need some information from you in order to complete registration and list a product. You will register with a Professional Selling plan (if you don’t have one already), set up your shop location, choose your business name, set up your payment method and provide a credit card number (so that we can verify your identity). Once you’ve completed your registration, resources are available to create your first listing, set up your Artisan profile, and manage your business.
What categories are available on Handmade?
Handmade is open to Artisans who make Accessories, Artwork, Baby, Beauty & Personal Care, Clothing, Shoes & Handbags, Home, Outdoor & Home Care, Jewellery & Watches, Kitchen & Dining, Pet Supplies, Sporting Goods, Stationery & Party Supplies and Toys & Games. If you don’t see your category listed, this means we do not allow the sale of those items in the Handmade store. Popular categories not currently available include Digital or Downloadable Products, Food & Grocery items, and Electronics. You may consider registering to sell and listing your products in another Amazon store, or check back in the future to see if the category becomes available on Handmade.
What if I already sell online?
No problem! You can list your products with Handmade too! If you already sell with Amazon as a Professional or Individual seller, instructions will be provided to add Handmade to your account once you complete your application and are approved to sell.
