Amazon Seller Central is the web interface utilized by merchants to manage their orders. An individual selling via the Amazon Seller Central is considered a third-party seller. Smart sellers use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). However, anyone can utilize the Seller Central and can hold full control of their product listings and pricing. There are four primary management areas - Managing your inventory, handling sales, shipment of products, and dealing with returns.
