Is selling on Amazon worth it?
One of the most common questions I’m asked when someone wants to start online selling is: “Where Should I Sell?”
This is one of the toughest decisions for new sellers, as they are many times hesitant about investing money, time and energy into a selling platform that may possibly not work for them.
One of the most important steps to start your online business is to decide where you’ll start. The answer to this question all depends on your knowledge, budget and goals.
Do you have a specific idea that you’ve always wanted to test or do you produce a specific product?
You don’t have a specific product in mind, but just want want to get started with the most lucrative strategy?
If you answered, “yes” to question A, I’d consider starting with a marketplace like Etsy or even a Shopify store.
If you answered, “yes” to Question B, I’d suggest you take a serious look at the Amazon selling.
But many are asking the question: “Is Selling on Amazon Worth It?”
So you’ve read all above and now you’re wondering, “What’s the cons?”
That’s a great question! There are cons and risks associated with any business. I’ll be completely transparent with you on some of those below:
Those are just a few but there are some other risks I may have missed. The key: is to get the correct information so that you understand how to run your account safely.
What are the different ways you can sell on Amazon.com?
Amazon offers sellers plenty of ways to sell on their platform and I won’t cover them all here. But two of the main ways are: Amazon FBA & Merchant Fulfilled Selling
Are sellers who ship their inventory into Amazon and Amazon then handles the shipping, fulfillment and customer management for those orders. As a seller, you’ll pay higher fees for this process and also may lose profit due to storage fees and leftover inventory.
Are those who are responsible for the shipment, processing and customer management for products they list on Amazon. These sellers will incur less fees, however they are held at a much higher standard for being sure that they are compliant with brands and Amazon policies.
I prefer merchant fulfilled selling, and this is the selling that is taught in my Amazon course. I also have an ongoing mastermind for Amazon FBA and merchant fulfilled sellers.
The purpose of the Amazon training is to teach sellers how to safely create and account, maintain account health, list profitable products and scale account profits.
Many of our students are earning 6 figures and beyond as a result of the training and ongoing mastermind.
