Hello Again Jude1,

The Pro Merchant is a program allows you to list your items directly on Amazon. 

?Amazon?s Technology and Traffic ? Amazon creates the technology that
helps convert visitors into customers and our search engine marketing
efforts expose your products to more of our 59,000,000 customers.

Shared Success ? Our Pay-for-Performance business model gives both
parties the incentive to work towards shared success.

Fraud Protection ? Amazon provides you with broad protection against
fraud on all of your orders.?

?How it works

List your items on Amazon. You?ll find the tools you need to upload
and list your items in Seller Central (which is the online tool that
enables participants to manage their business on the Amazon site).

We notify you when an order has been placed. We?ll send you an email
letting you know that one of your items has been sold.

You pack and ship your item to the customer (unless you are using
Fulfillment by Amazon).

We deposit payment into your account. We?ll send you an email
notifying you that your payment has been sent.?

Hi Bobbie7,
Always a pleasure! If I do a search on (the main site) for
"Brand X shirts," will "Brand X shirts" show up looking like a regular
product on amazon and will you be able to purchase it like any other
product on amazon?

Hi Bobbie7,
Yes, this is what I was looking for. However, I requested information

heard back. I again requested information from them after seeing your
answer, but still haven't received an answer back...

There are quite a few telephone numbers for Amazon in a previous
answer here at Google Answers.

Unfortunately, I did not locate a direct number for the Pro Merchant Program.
