The Amazon marketplace comprises millions of customers from
different parts of the world who are
looking for particular products to purchase.
These customers are usually in search
of great bargains so if you have new or
used high demand items with a cheap price,
you can definitely make a good sale.
There are sellers that
have literally started from scratch
and now sell over $50,000 a month.
Some sellers ship their orders
directly to customers, while others
use the FBA option.
There's more than one way you can make money selling on Amazon.
I'm going to tell you about the main ones.
First of all, Amazon Marketplace. Marketplace offers you an opportunity
to sell products (not just books but a whole range of things)
on the exact same page on Amazon's website where Amazon sell the product themselves.
So you get to compete with them head-on, and even
get to compete with them on price.
Selling prices are fixed - Marketplace isn't an auction. You can list an
unlimited number of items for free but what they call a referral fee is
charged on each sale. The marketplace is for both new and used products.
Marketplace is suitable whether you just want to make some
spare cash part time, but also if you want to start a 'proper' small business.
The other principle approach to profit is Amazon Associates.
Partners is essentially a subsidiary program.
Instructions to Sell on Amazon Marketplace
It's anything but difficult, to begin with, Amazon Marketplace.
You don't have to enroll ahead of time. You can open a
vendor record when you list your first item.
On the off chance that you as of now have a purchaser account
on Amazon you can add your merchant record to that.
To enroll as a merchant you will require a business name, an
address, a show name, a charge card and a phone contact number.
That is all you have to begin.
Go to the Amazon site, look down the page to 'Profit With Us'
and after that 'Offer On Amazon'. You will then observe two alternatives:
Offer a little or offer a considerable measure?
Amazon offers two section focuses into Marketplace
which they casually tag as 'offering a bit' or 'offering a
Essentially 'a bit' is for incidental and interest vendors
who hope to offer under 35 things a month. It costs a set fee'
in addition to a referral charge for every deal.
You are additionally confined to the item classes you can offer in.
In any case, the preferred standpoint is that it costs essentially
nothing to begin and there are no continuous charges
assuming, at first, you don't offer in particular.
Offering 'a considerable measure' is for expert dealers who
hope to offer more than 35 things a month.
You pay a 39.99 month to month settled expense and a
referral charge. You can offer in all the Amazon item classes.
It isn't generally practical to rundown low value,
low volume items as an 'offer a bit' dealer.
To do that you should be an 'offer a great deal' dealer! Be that as it may,
I'd prescribe you take the 'offering a bit' course to begin with.
You can simply overhaul later.
Pick your choice, then fill in the online frame.
Star Merchant Sellers
When you are offering 'a great deal' you will presumably likewise need to
end up what Amazon call a Pro Merchant Seller.
Star Merchants have admittance to volume offering and
mass posting instruments. There is a web interface that
permits you to all the more effectively deal with your item
portrayals, stock, and requests. You will likewise have the
capacity to fare and import data to and from your record.
When you get up and running the offering a great deal/Pro
Merchant choice will work out much less expensive and, vitally, will permit you to take a shot at more
tightly edges and profit from deals that the individuals who offer only a little can't.
Amazon Marketplace Selling - how to sell your products
Now let's take a look at exactly how you put products up for
sale on Amazon Marketplace.
The idea of Marketplace is that you sell your product
on exactly the same page on which Amazon and
any other Marketplace sellers sell it.
So, first, find the equivalent new product in the Amazon catalog.
Use the 'Search' tool at the top of the Amazon home page.
Put on the product type and name and Amazon will
automatically take you to the correct page to list it.
Next, check carefully that the product type, brand and model number or
whatever Amazon has found for you is the correct one.
Once you reach that page you'll find a button called 'Sell Yours Here'.
Click on it, sign into your seller account, and you can now list your product immediately.
Now this is the really clever thing about Amazon.
Assuming the product already exists in the Amazon catalog a listing
is ready made for you to use. You don't have to write a description or
upload a photo. All you need to do is state what condition your
product is in (i.e. new or one of several standards used descriptions),
state the quantity you have for sale and fill in the price you require.
Also, decide what postage options you want to offer. (At this stage you can also
decide whether you are willing to send the product abroad or not.)
If you wish, you can add a further description up to 2,000
characters (not words). This will help you differentiate
your product or offering from Amazon and from other sellers.
Then, Amazon will give you a summary of your listing to
check and also confirm what their fees will be if the item sells.
If you're happy with this just click 'Submit Your Listing' and you're off.
Once you've done this your item is automatically listed until it sells
or for 60 days (indefinitely if you're a Pro Merchant).
What's an ASIN? ASIN stands for Amazon Standard Identification Number.
Almost every product on their site has its own ASIN - a unique code
they use to identify it. If you know the ASIN you can list it
directly using that. (For books, the ASIN is the same as the ISBN number on the jacket.)
A lot of customers are looking for items that are in
minimum condition and these customers will tend to purchase a
more expensive product from you in a 'very good' condition instead of
a cheaper product from somebody else in 'acceptable' condition.
In order to succeed, it is important to know various techniques
on how to sell on Amazon. Furthermore, you need to work
hard and to work smart. Remember that you need to
establish your price appropriately in order increase your earnings.
