I am going to show you a series of videos that were created to teach you the entire process. If after watching these videos you still have questions, feel free to ask. These are all available to you once you sign up for an Amazon account too by the way, which of course you will need to do before you start preparing the inventory files (even though you can obtain them without an account, I recommend signing up with Amazon at this point in time for a "Professional Account."
The Professional Account allows you not to pay Amazon a fee for every order except for the standard commission for each category which ranges in price from 7%-15% depending on the product category you are selling in (most of them are 15% though)...so if you have yet to factor that into the prices you plan on selling at, I would do so now, otherwise you may be losing money on every sale!!
