You are an Amazon Seller and need support in expanding your online business? Then the Amazon Service Provider Network could be interesting for you. In this article, we would like to explain to you what this network is all about. Then we will go through the steps you need to take to set it up. We will also look at the individual services that you can use as a member and inform you about the range of service providers in Germany.

What is the Amazon Service Provider Network?

The Amazon Service Provider Network – or SPN for short – is an association of service providers. They support Amazon sellers in their first steps on the sales platform. They also help you manage and expand your business. The third-party providers are, of course, carefully checked by Amazon and continue to be monitored even after they have been approved. The quality of the service provider network is thus assured. The services include, for example, the creation of product images, accounting, shipping or search engine optimisation. More details will follow in a later section.

How to set up the service provider network?

To begin, you need to specify your own location or that of your online business. Also select the marketplace you want to serve. Then you can decide on a specific type of service. You can then filter the results to get the most accurate results. If you are successful in your search, you can contact the service provider directly. A service request will then be sent to them. After the request has been received, the service provider will contact you.

What services are offered?

We would now like to introduce you to some of the services offered in more detail. Certain service providers support you with your accounting. You will receive useful analyses that can help you increase your profitability. You can also use an advisor to optimise your advertisements. If you click on a provider, you will be shown the services in detail, as here. In addition to advertising optimisation, it is also possible to get support with account management. This mainly involves organisation and navigation in Seller Central.

Services for your Amazon Listing

For cataloguing, service providers are also available to assist you in creating listings and at the same time ensure that the relevant guidelines are adhered to. To ensure a compliant listing, compliance providers ensure that all rules for the respective marketplace are observed. For the distribution of brands, you are also provided with services that help you to perfectly showcase your brand on Amazon. Other service providers in turn support you with shipping through Amazon. Because in order to use this service, you need to take a few steps in preparation. These include packaging, labelling and quality control. The help of a reliable partner is therefore more than appropriate.

Services for shipping and training

You can also use the international shipping service to send goods all over the world. SPN also offers a service for international returns. Storage in the respective country of sale is also facilitated by shortened delivery times through the corresponding services. If you have problems with a surplus in your warehouse, you will also find a service provider. You will also receive appropriate support in tax matters. Training courses will also give you the know-how you need to sell on Amazon yourself. This includes, for example, registration in Seller Central or product categories.

You can also find detailed instructions on registration, costs and advantages here.

Translations and product images

Another useful service is the possibility of receiving assistance with translations. This applies in particular if you want to sell internationally. Also essential for a successful listing: high-quality product images. Some service providers therefore help you with image editing and ensure compliance with the guidelines for product images. You can also find an article on this topic here in our blog.

Are there service providers in the Amazon SPN that are based in Germany?

Yes, there are service providers in the Amazon SPN in Germany. However, their number does not exceed 20 at the moment. If you still need support, however, you can contact us, as we ourselves belong to this small circle of service providers. We have specialised primarily in PPC ads and advertising for products and brands.

Advantages for sellers

To briefly summarise the advantages of the Amazon SPN, it can be said that sellers benefit above all from the fact that all services can be found in one place. This is also enhanced by Amazon’s quality assurance. Furthermore, you are free to choose whether you only require help in one of the sub-areas or prefer the support of an Amazon full-service agency such as MadeByBrain.
