Are you ready to join the Amazon revolution and start selling online?
With more than 60% of online product searches starting on Amazon, it’s no surprise that this eCommerce giant accounts for 40% of U.S. retail eCommerce sales.
This presents a vast, green opportunity for sellers who are ready to take the leap.
But with such a massive marketplace, it can be intimidating to get started.
Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with this beginner’s guide to selling on Amazon.
Set up Your Amazon Seller Account
✅ Tax information
✅ Phone number
✅ Bank account number
✅ Bank routing number
✅ Credit card details
✅ Government-issued ID
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll need to choose between “Selling as a Professional” or “Selling as an Individual”.
As a beginner, we recommend going with “Selling as an Individual”.
This option charges $0.99 per sale, while the professional seller account charges $39.99 per month.
Choose a Product Category
With over 30 categories available on Amazon, it’s important to choose the right one for your product.
This will help ensure that it can be easily found by potential customers.
Take some time to research the various categories and subcategories, and choose the one that your product fits into best with beatable competition.
Create a Product Listing
Now it’s time to create a listing for your product. You’ll need to provide some information about your product, including the product title, description, and images.
Make sure to be accurate and detailed in your information, as this will help customers make an informed purchase decision.
Price Your Product
Determining the price of your product can be a bit tricky, as there are several factors to consider.
You’ll want to take into account the cost of production, competition, and market demand.
Don’t forget to also consider any fees or commissions that Amazon will charge for selling your product.
Ship Your Product
When a customer orders your product on Amazon, it’s your responsibility to package and ship it to them if you’re doing FBM (Fulfillment by Merchant).
But if you’re a beginner, we recommend going with FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon).
In this model, Amazon picks, packs, and ships your product to customers, ensuring timely delivery.
With these steps, you’re on your way to listing and selling your products on Amazon.
By using the right strategies and marketing efforts, you can increase sales and grow your business on the platform.
Good luck! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out and we’ll be more than happy to help guide you through the process.
