Selling physical products on Amazon: Amazon FBA and retail arbitrage
Becoming a seller for amazon is the best option for earning money, but it is risky as well; you can not be sure of the drawing with having the proper research and knowledge of what you need to do. There are two options for the sellers on amazon. One is the Amazon FBA option where the seller or the supplier ships all the inventory to the Amazon, which is taken care of later by amazon for the shipping. You will also have to decide at the very beginning whether you are going for private labeling or not. Although private labeling does require more work upfront it is better to develop a brand in order to build a sustainable business.
Let us have a look at a quick overview of what each party has to do.
You as an amazon seller:
- Find a niche.
- Product research, a tool like jungle scout can be very helpful and is used by many successful sellers.
- Find suppliers, you can try US suppliers, Alibaba or any other supplier depending on your location and your budget.
- Ship the products to an Amazon warehouse following the guidelines they will give you. Be aware that Amazon has specific requirements like package size, bar code, etc. If you don't follow the guidelines you may be subject to extra fees or delays.
- List your product using Amazon seller central, make sure you have a good product description with relevant keywords and great pictures.
- Manage your stock, a very important part to avoid being penalized by Amazon. Plan ahead of time and calculate how many items to buy regarding your previous selling rate and a little bit of spying on the competition, follow the trend and decide if you can still sell a product.
- Drive traffic to your product listing
What is the role of Amazon?
- Stock your products
- Taking care of payment and shipping
- Offer customers service
Keep in mind that Amazon FBA is not a get rich quick but instead a real business. What does that mean?
You will need to invest time and money before making money and profits. You may need several months before beginning to sell and again several months before making any profit. Results are not topical, some good online marketers manage to build a profitable business from Amazon FBA within 3 months and others will need a year to see profits. Compare to a traditional business making some profits within a year is still very good. Like any business, some people are going to fail but it is a scalable stream of income. For example, Larry Lubarsky managed to build a company that makes millions of dollars each year selling physical products on Amazon.
Amazon retail arbitrage
You can also try the retail arbitrage to earn some money. What you need to do is to resell the products that you have already bought.
- How to find products
To begin you can install the Amazon seller app on your mobile phone. It allows you to scan any product in a store and to see all the information about this product on Amazon.
Another way is to use Brickseek to find products to sell on Amazon or eBay for retail arbitrage. Brickseek is very accurate and allows you to see the best deals on most of the well-known shops like Walmart, Target, Lowe's and many more.
After comparison, you can decide if it is a good product to choose for retail arbitrage.
- How to determine the price of a product
When it comes to setting a price, every seller has his own rule. First, you need to know in detail all your expenses and Amazon fees. Then, you will set a price that will allow you to make some profit. Here are some of the rules that can help you set a price.
Sell your product at a price three times higher than the original price (better for low priced items). Your profit margin can be anywhere from 40% to 60% depending on the volatility of the market you are in. Plan a net profit of at least 3 to 4 dollars.
Knowing that you can benefit from impulse buying for a selling price under $30 it is best to start with products priced from $20 to $30. That way you can get at the same time enough customers and a good net profit. For example (10/25)x100 = 40, that means the product cost and all your fees (the Amazon fees, shipment to amazon warehouse, UPC code, etc.) should be $15.
