Frequently Asked Questions


What products should I sell in Latin America?
We recommend sellers offer all their eligible US selection in Latin America. With the Build International Listings tool, it’s easy to add your US listings to our Mexico and Brazil stores, get them translated, and set pricing rules. Before you list, make sure your products are compliant with regulations in Mexico and Brazil.

If you plan to use FBA to fulfill in Mexico and Brazil, you may want to start by listing a wide range of products with less inventory, rather than selling a small number of products with a lot of inventory. Offering a broader selection of products means customers are more likely to see your listings, and you’ll be able to gauge which of your products can succeed in a particular store. Once you identify top-selling products, you can send larger shipments to FBA. You can also start by listing some or all of your products through Remote Fulfillment with FBA.
What types of products can’t be listed on and
Some products can’t be listed due to legal or regulatory restrictions or Amazon policies. For more information, see our Mexico restricted products and Brazil restricted products Help pages.
How much does it cost to sell on and
If you use your US account, you won’t pay an additional selling-plan fee to sell for or You still pay a referral fee on each product sold, which varies by category and country.

Shipping costs depend on several factors, including the size and weight of your products. To estimate the cost for fulfilling orders yourself, and for using FBA or Remote Fulfillment with FBA, try our Revenue Calculator. Or review FBA Mexico and FBA Brazil shipping costs.
How will I get paid, and in what currency?
We transfer the proceeds from your sales to the bank account listed in your account settings. Based on the country of your bank account, we’ll transfer the amount in that country’s currency. For example, if you provide a US-based bank account, we will transfer the amount in US dollars through Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers.


What are RFCs/CNPJs, and what do I need to know about them?
An RFC (Registro Federal de Contribuyente) is a Mexican Tax ID number. A CNPJ (Cadastro Nacional de Pessoas Jurídicas) is a Brazilian Tax ID number. These are alphanumeric codes that the Mexico and Brazil tax authorities use to identify companies and individuals who perform economic activities in Mexico and Brazil.

If you store and sell products through FBA in Mexico or Brazil, you will be required to pay taxes and comply with Mexico and Brazil tax obligations. You will need an RFC or CNPJ to do this.

For tax compliance, consider hiring providers through Amazon’s Service Provider Network.

Account and listings

Can I use my current US account to sell in Latin America?
Yes. Your North America Unified Account allows you to create and manage product offers across,,, and When you register to sell in any of Amazon’s North America stores, your selling account is automatically enabled to sell in all other North America stores, which means all your orders can be managed in a single place. However, you’ll need to be aware of local tax and regulatory requirements. It’s your responsibility to ensure that you comply with all requirements.
