Registering as a developer

This topic describes how to register as a developer for SP-API.

You must register as a Selling Partner API developer before you can register your Selling Partner API application. The procedure for registering as a developer varies slightly depending on the type of application that you plan to create. Developer applications are grouped into three types:

  • All public applications. Applications that are publicly available and are authorized by sellers or by vendors using OAuth.

  • Private seller applications. Applications for sellers that are available only to your organization, and are self-authorized.

  • Private vendor applications. Applications for vendors that are available only to your organization, and are self-authorized.

Important!

Beginning April 2022, public and private applications are subject to authorization limits and restrictions. For more information, refer to Authorization Limits
