Amazon Seller Central
How to sell physical products on Amazon breaks down the selling process into four simple steps: list, sell, ship, and get paid. Let’s assume that you’ve already identified a winning product and a trusted wholesaler and you are ready to start selling on Amazon. The first thing you’ll need to do is to list the products.
Sell Your Amazon Products
Now that your listing is live on Amazon, you can use the Seller Central website to handle all aspects of your account. You can check for orders, track your listing’s performance, update your inventory, and so on.
You’ll notice that numerous other sellers offer the same products as you. So, you need to stand out if you want to build a profitable Amazon business.
Keep an eye on your competitors to ensure that you are offering the best possible deal. Amazon most frequently displays the lowest available prices.
Monitor your performance to determine your most profitable products. Also, make sure you are updating your inventory regularly.
Ship Your Amazon Products
You’ve sold your first product on Amazon. Congratulation! It wasn’t that hard, was it? Now, you need to make sure that the product gets in your customer’s hand safe and sound.
If you choose to fulfill orders yourself, you are responsible for packing, labeling, and shipping items to individual customers. Keep in mind that Amazon will charge customers standard shipping fees for all products (including media ones) sold by Individual Sellers. The problem with this strategy is that, if your shipping costs don’t match Amazon’s fees, you might lose the difference in any additional shipping costs you acquire.
The other option you can choose for shipping products is moving up to Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).
Your little Amazon business has blown up, and sales are pouring in.
The only problem is that you’re getting more orders than you can handle. You’re thinking about hiring a few people to help you with order fulfillment and customer service.
Not so fast. You can use Fulfillment by Amazon and let them take care of everything.
Fulfillment by Amazon, also known as FBA, is a business model that allows you to take advantage of Amazon’s distribution network. Simply put, Amazon will store your inventory in one of their warehouses, fulfill orders, and even provide customer service, so that you don’t have to be hands-on with every aspect of your business. In simple terms, you’re outsourcing your packing, shipping, and return services to Amazon and give them a cut of your sales.
In addition, having your products fulfilled by Amazon, makes them available for Amazon Prime one-day and two-day shipping, increasing your potential to make money on Amazon.
Here’s how it works.
First, go to your account and select “I want Amazon to ship and provide customer service for my items if they sell” from the Shipping Method tab. The next step you’ll need to take is to convert your merchandise to FBA items. Go to “Inventory” and click on the “Manage Inventory” tab. Click on the “Action” button and selects the “Change to Fulfilled by Amazon” option from the drop-down menu.
Once you modify the status of your inventory, Amazon will ask you to choose between FBA Label Service and Stickerless, Commingled Inventory. If you’re selling new items, you can use stickerless, commingled inventory. What that means is that Amazon will commingle your products with other items from matching sellers. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of printing out your stickers, you can opt for the FBA Label Service.
After you’ve selected one of these two options, Amazon will prompt you to either “Convert Only” or “Convert and Send Inventory.” Pick the second option and create a shipping plan.
Now that your items are converted, it’s time to ship your products to Amazon for FBA. Make sure to check the weight of your packages before dropping them at your local UPS or FedEx.
From now on, Amazon handles everything from stocking to shipping your products. So, when someone makes an order, Amazon warehouse workers find and ship your product. If there’s a problem with the order, their customer service will handle it for you.
In this video, Stefan talks about how to sell Amazon physical products – how to do you private label products and sell them through fulfillment by Amazon also known as Amazon FBA.
“If you’ve been following on my YouTube channel, my blog you probably know that early on this year I launched my first Amazon product by going through the Amazing Selling Machine.
We just launched our second Amazon product as well which is also a supplement and it has been a great business for me that is really taking off.
I’ve also been working with a group of people all over the world helping them sell on Amazon. My girlfriend’s a superstar at this. She got two products on Amazon that are selling really well also and so a lot of people been asking me more about this.
Around the world, Amazon has more than 175 fulfillment centers which contain more than 150 million square feet of storage space. With FBA, you get to store your stuff on those shelves.
You also get Amazon’s world-class customer service and returns, along with other advantages (like automatic Prime eligibility and Free Super Saver Shipping) that help you scale your business—fast.
