Opening an Amazon store in Poland
In order to set up an Amazon store in Poland, entrepreneurs will need to register a company in Poland. This step is essential, as the new affiliate company will need to be able to issue invoices and comply with the taxation matters for online selling or VAT applicability.
Our team can help you open a Polish company, namely the Polish Sp. Z.O.O. company - the local equivalent of the private limited liability company. This is a preferred business form, including for those who open an Amazon store, because the assets of the founders are completely separate from those of the corporation.
Investors who choose to set up a Polish Amazon store can even sell their own products or products merchandised by local sellers, as Poland is included on the list of countries that can register for selling on Amazon.com.
Conditions for operating an Amazon store in Poland
An important issue to consider when providing access to the Amazon marketplace through a local store is the accepted payment method. Clients who purchase items often choose PayPal as a preferred method, however, companies in Poland need to provide other payment options such as credit or debit card payments. This is done by opening a merchant account in Poland. One of our Polish company formation experts can help you with detailed information.
