28 Sep How to Start Selling Your Products on Amazon?
Whether it is to expand the reach of a company or to get rid of a few extra items that are lying around the house, selling on Amazon is a fairly simple, straightforward and convenient process. There are two major areas to take into consideration, one is the steps which are involved before the registration process is done and the second are the steps to work on, after the registration has taken place.
Step 1 – Decide what is to be sold
The biggest part is choosing the right kind of product to sell. This can be done by looking at the most highly reviewed products and adding them to your list for assured transactions. There are more than 200 available categories to choose from with about 10 that are available to only professional sellers.
Step 2 – Create a Selling Plan
There are a total of two selling plans offered by Amazon. Whether users wish to sell one or a thousand products. The professional plan offers sellers the opportunity to sell an unlimited number of products with only a $39.99 subscription fee with no monthly fees. They instead pay $0.99 per one sold item. However both professional and individuals pay other fees when their items sell.
Step 3 – Create a Seller Account
Once the seller has decided on whether to go with the individual or the professional option, they should start filling out account details with the relevant information. Product listings should also be added so that venders can decide whether they want to ship the products by yourself or use Amazon fulfillment services. Once everything has been set up, users are ready to commence their first sale.
Step 1 – Listings
Begin by listing products on Amazon’s catalog one at a time, or through a professional selling subscription. Users can also add large batches using bulk tools to save time.
Two ways to list products;
- List products which are already on Amazon, with the product’s description and shipping options.
- List products that are not on amazon yet with product attributes including titles and descriptions.
Step 2 – Shipping
Amazon takes the initiative in notifying customers when orders are placed. By using Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), users can either allow Amazon to ship products on their behalf or handle shipping on their own.
Step 3 – Payment
Amazon offers customers direct deposit options, straight to a user’s bank account at relevant intervals. As well as notifies them whenever the payment has been sent.
