Adhering to US regulations, it is mandatory for all sellers to showcase their business address to consumers on the Product Detail Page.

Set up your shop preference
Craft your shop name, which will be showcased to consumers on your shop profile. Here are some tips for consideration:
– You can create a tentative shop name now and modify it later.
– A well-thought-out shop name aids consumers in recognizing your business better. Consider drawing inspiration from your products, branding, and anything that reflects your style.
– Utilize letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers, and special characters in your shop name. However, having a name composed solely of numbers or special characters is not permitted.
– Avoid using “flagship” or “official” in the name.
– Specify your primary product or service type by choosing a category that best describes what you offer. This selection does not impact your future business activities; it is solely for completing the registration process.
– Provide contact information for verification purposes.
