Amazon does not register sellers without GST numbers.

You have to take GST registration to sell online on Amazon or any other portal.

You can sell on your friends name. But I will not suggest to do it.

Selling on your friends name will result in Benami transaction as beneficiary is different from actual party. Second part is how will your recover profit part from your friend? Section 40A(3) of income tax will disallow expenses if you take full profit from him.

If you are going to import and sell in good volume, suggestion is to take GST registration on your name.
