If you’re wondering how to sell on Amazon for beginners, you’ve come to the right place.

In a previous article titled, “How to Sell Items on Amazon: Let Skip Show You How” I talked about how easy it is to sell on Amazon and how you can crush your competition by following a proven Power Seller’s blueprint.

In this article, we’ll expand on the subject and you’ll see that it’s incredibly easy to set up a seller’s account and start making sales!

Why Sell on Amazon?


Most people are unaware of the fact that they can create seller accounts on Amazon, everybody assumes that if you want to sell something online, eBay is the website that you need to use.

However, that’s not the case, it has always been possible for anyone to sell on Amazon, almost as easy as it is to sell on eBay, both websites allow anyone to create a seller’s account.

We won’t compare the two websites in this article, but we do know one thing for sure; tapping into an additional marketplace can’t hurt your business!

And Amazon sees a hell of a lot more traffic than eBay.

So, when it comes down to it, the main reason to sell on Amazon is more sales.

Which means you’ll make more cash.

A huge amount of people are browsing Amazon’s listings at any given moment, and that means you’re listings will have a lot of exposure.

In other words, if you want to sell more products, then you should consider selling on Amazon.

How to Sell on Amazon for Beginners?


Most people make a rush of creating an account and end up running into some problems which could have been avoided if they took their time with the account creation process.

First off, in order to create a seller account you will need a credit card. Amazon does not use PayPal, all the payments are made with credit cards or debit cards.

Secondly, there are two seller accounts: Professional and Individual.

The Professional account costs $39.99/month but it grants you access to many bonus features.

There is no monthly fee on the Individual accounts.

But you will need to pay various fees (such as $0.99/sale).

I recommend a Individual account for beginners.

Third, Amazon has a very cool service called Fulfillment by Amazon and it allows sellers to ship their product inventory to Amazon’s warehouses where the individual shipments will be handled by Amazon.

This is an excellent service, there are some additional fees and there is a small learning curve, but once you understand the basics, this service can kick-start your business.

With Fulfillment by Amazon you won’t need to worry about heading down to a post office to mail the products which is super convenient.

You can simply send a large shipment to Amazon’s warehouses and let them take care of the details. They’ll even be able to provide customer support for your business!

Special Tip for Beginners:

You can track all of your sales in Amazon’s FBA program and once you’re item has been delivered, make sure you send your customers a feedback request letter and thank them for their purchase. This will really boost your seller rating which will result in…

Drum Roll Please… More Sales!!

Fulfillment by Amazon is a service that one should definitely consider when it comes to selling on Amazon, especially for beginners.

Here’s an idea: 

One of the fastest ways to make a profit with e-commerce is to sale wholesale products, small and light items that you can sell for a nice profit.

The suppliers can be found on Alibaba, one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the world.

Find a supplier, purchase a batch of products, send it to Amazon’s warehouse, and wait for the sales to roll in.

You don’t even need to leave the comfort of your home.

This can all be managed from your desk!

Obviously, there are a lot more details that you need to consider when it comes to selling wholesale products from China with Amazon.

However, if you take it a step at a time and solve each problem, not only will you accumulate a lot of valuable experience, but you’ll also be rewarded with a lucrative e-commerce business.

Your Secret Weapon:


As a beginner who  is learning to sell on Amazon, all this might seem rather confusing and daunting; like an enormous task that you can’t possibly complete on your own.

I know how it feels to read about an interesting and lucrative business ideas only to push it to the back of your mind and never think about it again.

That was a mistake that I made many times in the past, and if only I took action sooner, my life might have went in a completely different direction.

So as someone who has been there, I have something to tell you, and these two words have the potential to change your life, if you listen to them…

Take Action!!!

Commit to an idea and then start working on it, there’s no need to rush.

Problems will rear their ugly heads but you’ll solve them and move on.

The goal is to create momentum, always make progress, even if it’s only a little.

You’ll also need assistance.

Taking action on your own is excellent and admirable, but there are people who have already walked that path, and they can guide you on your journey; they’ll make it possible for you to avoid the mistakes they made.

What you’ll need is a guide like Skip McGrath’s “The Complete Amazon Marketing System” to show you that it is possible to create a thriving e-commerce business with Amazon, even if you’re a total beginner.

Conclusion:


So now you know how to sell on amazon for beginners, these tips will make your journey much – much – easier!

Just remember, make sure that you are up-to-date on the latest product shipment rules in order to avoid complications. There are many rules and regulations that you’ll need to know about.

Also remember that the more a product weighs the more it will cost to ship it, so focus on finding small and light products at first, and don’t overdo it with your inventory!

I suggest investing in small shipments (100 to 200 pieces), tracking sales, and then order more products depending on which ones from your previous batch that have sold out.

There’s always a chance that someone will not buy the product that you’re trying to sell, it’s nothing personal; it’s just how the online world works.

Therefore, it’s best to determine the best chances that a product has by conducting a thorough product research!
