Twenty Tips for Selling on Amazon.com – Tip # 2
December 13th, 2013 by Skip McGrath
Here is our second tip in the series.
2. Sell with FBA – FBA stands for Fulfillment By Amazon. This is a program whereby you send all of your merchandise into Amazon and when it sells, Amazon ships it for you. Amazon also handles the customer service, communications and returns and refunds. Since we moved from merchant fulfilled to FBA our sales have more than tripled. It is true that fees in FBA are higher then merchant fulfilled, but your merchandise will sell so much faster that you will still make greater profits. And some of those fees are offset by the cost of boxes and shipping materials which Amazon supplies as part of the fee.
In addition consider the huge time saving of not having to individually wrap and ship 20 to 30 packages a day. This allows you more time to do high-value tasks such as product research and sourcing.
