    • Charge method-enter your credit card information in this section. Amazon requires this information to confirm your identity and to set up your payment account. If you ever move your local business or your credit card expires you will need to update this section with the new information.
    • Deposit-this is where you enter your bank checking account number and also choose whether you will sign up for an individual or pro- merchant account. This section is important to fill so that you get paid on all your sales.
  4. Go back to your seller account page by clicking the link at the top of the page.
