Important Reminder: In order to begin using the Selling System, you must complete all three steps above. Please keep this in mind as you allocate your time to complete the sign-up process.
Once you have completed the sign up process, an e-mail with your user ID will be generated automatically and sent to your Selling System administrator. A second e-mail with your password will be sent directly to you. You must contact your Selling System administrator to obtain the user ID you have been assigned. Please remember to log in to the Selling System at least once every 90 days to avoid deactivating your user ID.
