Amazon offers both Professional and Individual selling plans.
The Professional selling plan gives you access to inventory tools to upload batch files and manage your orders through feeds and reports. These tools are beneficial to most medium- to large-size businesses.
The Individual selling plan is for sellers who do not need access to inventory tools and reports for volume selling.
You can switch between selling plans whenever you want.
