Check this box, if you want to sell your products on all five Amazon European marketplaces (amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.it and amazon.es) and get access to millions of additional buyers. You can sell on all these marketplaces without additional subscription fees. After registration, you only need to create listings in your home marketplace and eligible listings will automatically be re-created in the remaining four marketplaces via our “Build international listings” tool.
