Amazon is a company that’s known worldwide, which helps sell all kinds of products in many countries. Did you realize that most items have different sources? That's because retailers are also scattered around the world.
You have to picture Amazon as a huge store with thousands of shelves with endless offers of products. Amazon stores its retailers’ items in order to do efficient deliveries once a customer has closed their purchase. This said, you don't need to have a place to the storage, because your products will be stored at Amazon. You don't even need to touch your items; you can send them directly from the factory to this company.
There are two ways to make the most of Amazon FDA: you can sell your own products or you can resell other's items. If you have your own production, you can start right now by signing in Amazon with a business account and following their instructions.
As said, you can also work as a retailer, and that's the most interesting benefit that provides Amazon FDA. You need to find something attractive enough, with stable demand. If possible, it should also have a good profit margin.
If you don't know where to find something with these characteristics, you can search in Alibaba. To start with, you can choose something relatively affordable and by a small quantity. Arrange for the purchase to be delivered to Amazon’s fulfillment centers and list them as a retailer. If they get sold, you can start reinvesting this first income in more articles. If you make a wholesale purchase, you'll get a discounted rate.
Once you've sold your second pack of articles, you should reinvest the profits in new wholesale shopping. And so on. That’s how you scale your business. As you gain more experience, you can add more products to your business from the same provider, or from any other. There's a whole world of opportunities out there, you just need to get started!
