Do you need a legal business name to sell on Amazon?

Do you need a sellers permit to sell on Amazon?

Can I sell on Amazon without brand registry?
Yes, you are able to sell FBA without being brand registered. Thanks for coming to Seller Forums for assistance. As mentioned, Brand Registry is not required in order to take advantage of Amazon’s FBA service.
Should I create an LLC to sell on Amazon?
An LLC is not required to start selling stuff on Amazon. Most small sellers will start off as a sole proprietorship in their own name and test out the business. Selling a product on Amazon does raise a concern of liability and therefore operating as a separate legal entity such as an LLC is recommended.
