Working from home with Amazon is a far more efficient method to earn more profit and faster growth because Amazon boasts more than 100 times more customercustomer base than eBay has. However, Amazon is also a lot more restrictive with its product Categories. Amazon requires you to be an expert on the product categories you offer. Amazon is also less patient with mistakes. However, eBay is much more accepting of errors. This is why it is rare to find sellers selling on Amazon,, so there is less competition. It is also less competitive even more when you submit an application and get cleared to sell in one or more of Amazon’s Gated Categories Like Automotive, jewelry, luggage, and clothing, among others. .,…
In the beginning, most of the items sold on Amazon were offered by other online merchants; Amazon doesn’t own hardly any items whatsoever. Amazon is merely a platform for merchants worldwide to market and sell their merchandise on the Amazon WEB site and then earn between 7.5 percent to 15% commissions.
There are two ways to sell through Amazon:
1.) Fulfillment by Merchant is when you drop-ship your goods either directly from your store or from a WEB site’s fulfillment center such as Walmart.com, eBay, etc …. This way, you’ll don’t have to manage any product, only your vendor will. This method means that you’ll receive your cash first and then buy the item for your client. This is a more secure method to earn money. But, Amazon only pays every two weeks. Thus, you will get your money back every two weeks plus your profit. In comparison to eBay, you receive your cash from purchasing the item immediately. Once your order is completed and your client receives the product, the remainder of that cash remains for you to retain as pure profits.
2.) FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) is where you look for Manufacture or Manufacturers’ outlet stores to buy brand new products at a price of a penny. With this method, you can earn the biggest profit margins by purchasing the product for less than $1 and then selling it for $5-10 or more. This is five to ten times the amount you paid for it. After that, you send it to Amazon’s warehouse and let Amazon promote, sell, and ship the product to your customers on your behalf of you. There is no need to do anything other than keep your inventory on hand at Amazon. It’s much less work for you, particularly when you can convince the manufacturer to deliver your items directly to Amazon’s warehouses. Many do. Some even place your company’s logo on the product in exchange for a cost of a small amount. In certain cases, you can ship it to your facility (or home) and then pack the product or bundle it with other items to create one item. Then, you ship the product directly to the Amazon warehouse. Combining multiple items into one product makes it difficult for competitors to duplicate your product. Thus, eliminating competition even more. For instance, you could offer a set of Pizza pans that include Pizza cutters in an assortment.
Finding Manufacturers is quite simple: to Find the product’s UPC bar code on the packaging (not the Bar Code that is typically added as a taped UPC sticker that is affixed to the product’s packaging by the retailer). The bar code that is next to it is a Manufacturers’s (or manufacturer’s Distributor) address and telephone number. Just dial that number and inquire about the minimum order quantities and costs per unit. If you buy directly from the manufacturer, you may have to buy in bulk; however, remember that you’re going to purchase these items at a price of pennies, So even if you must purchase 500 units for twenty cents, it’s just going to cost you $100, for instance. If you sell them at $10, you have just earned $5000 after spending $100 on the items and the $3 Amazon commissions plus handling fees, and you’re still making $3400 net revenue.
Utilizing the Manufacturers’ Outlet stores such as Dollar Tree, Dollar General, 99 Cent Max Five and under, Topper Liquidator, etc .,… you can purchase a tiny quantity of these items to test how they are sold through Amazon by way of FBA. If they do well, you can then purchase a large quantity through the producer. So, you’re only paying a few dollars to test the product’s potential on Amazon. Much less than the $100 previously mentioned. However, the outlets of the Manufacturers may cost a bit higher per item than the Manufacturers ‘ cost. Most of the time, it’s around $1 or less per item, but sometimes it is higher. It is dependent on the manufacturer’s outlet store you are shopping at.
Utilize Tools to get:
“ASINspector” is an excellent tool available on the internet that can aid you in finding products that are top-selling within a specific category on Amazon. However, this tool can also be used with eBay, Walmart, and other online stores. The results will be compared with Amazon in terms of the volume of sales, pricing, and profit margins. The program will also guide you on the most reliable sources for your specific product, alongside other market studies such as sales trends in the last few years and in the present. Many of the market’s parameters can be measured using this instrument.
You can sort and filter these sales volumes and gross profits according to the order of lowest to highest or from the lowest to the highest. Utilizing the tool, you could observe that Amazon has the lowest prices, and on eBay, they are selling more, and in that case, you’ll want to source from Amazon and then sell it on eBay. However, if it’s selling less on eBay but higher on Amazon, it is best to source your supplies from eBay and then sell it on Amazon. However, don’t be adamant about the fact that eBay or Amazon will offer the most competitive prices. Sometimes Walmart or other online stores will.
