Best Ways You Need to Know Before You Sell on Amazon The latest news about the sale of the leading e-commerce website in the Arab world The Infinity Code Review to the world’s first electronic commerce company (amazon.com) worth up to 250 million dollars. Here I am not going to talk about this deal, and may be in this link a brief answer to the reasons for this acquisition (if of course) (Why acquire Amazon on the price rather than direct presence in the Arab arena?).
Everyone is going to the electronic traders market, and everyone is thinking of starting such a project, some for his own products and the other for products he buys and sells, and other goals and trends, but all of them are poured in their entirety on profitability.
There are different ways to delve into the sea of electronic commerce, for example:
Create a site specialized in direct selling of products, and here begins the process of research and development and find the appropriate mechanisms for electronic payment, delivery and shipping, secure the site, and succession of inputs and tools of these markets and commercial sites for success and profit, not to mention the course of insurance products sold ….
The other way is to rely on a commercial platform to provide all these solutions, and we do not have to secure products and display within that platform (website), which is providing the tools for the presentation and marketing, selling and collection.
There are several types of vendors who benefit from these profitable sites or platforms:
Who has a limited number of products and little does not require investment in the establishment of an independent electronic market,
Who is the owner of products with a literal peculiarity, in the sense of being a local producer, or business owners and shops of medium or small size, and therefore can not or dare not to invest in an independent e-commerce site,
Who does not have sufficient knowledge of the tools and mechanisms of electronic commerce, and does not want to spend time in it,
The owners of many products, but want to focus on securing products rather than going into creating their own market,
Who has an existing e-commerce site, but at the same time wants to reach a larger segment of these large electronic markets, thus expanding the target segment and making sales available from more than different electronic points of sale other than the vendor’s own.
Mall There are a lot of public electronic markets, and these markets Amazan World, and eBay, as well as the market location in the Arab world, and all these sites collect certain ratios on any sales movement through its platform, while at the same time provide the seller great effort It has a special location and makes full focus on securing the products and shipping them to the customer at the time of purchase. At the same time, the customer is provided with safe and safe shopping and shopping. All suppliers and product owners have been assured of their credibility as well as their products. In case of atmosphere D Any dispute or dispute with Seller.
If such sites are the location of the big market or the so-called The Infinity Code Review or electronic central markets, and provide a profitable environment for all parties (seller and buyer as well as the service provider or the combined electronic market)
Here, this quick illustration ends somewhat, and anyone who does not care about trade and e-commerce through central markets can stop here. To keep talking, by downloading this booklet (Amazon Safe Sale), which contains valuable information that you need to know before starting to deal with Amazon as a vendor that displays its products, and explains how Arab sellers in the Arab world can benefit from this. The big electronic market called Amazon …
I do not know if this is your first online selling experience or not, but if this is the first experience, you should start selling at ebay.
Amazon is suitable for people who have a pre-sale experience and have many products they want to sell (large inventory). Amazon has more laws and taxes than ebay for this reason it is advisable to start selling through ebay as a start.
Personally, I wanted to open my own store in Amazon, but for the study circumstances I could not do that. But I had a store in Ebay, and I was selling some special tweets that I no longer needed. Also I was buying some of the craigslist electronics and selling them at ebay for a small profit. You can start looking for some of your own tools that you no longer need or tools that your owners do not need, then buy them for a small amount and sell them on ebay. Of course, profits are not many, but as a start it is appropriate to take some experience. But remember that there is a tax for all the goods you sell. The tax is different depending on the type of goods, whether clothes or electronic devices or others.
To answer your questions:
Regarding suppliers. Depends on the type of product you want to sell. If it is a brand known as Playstation or Xbox, the best deals with wholesalers located in America and Canada. If you have accessories, clothes, etc., you can find suppliers by Alibaba. And of course, Alibaba needs a different theme if there is no background you have about it.
Regarding shipping. If you would like to sell at ebay p the site will give you discounts on shipping as it has relationships with shipping companies most notably USPS. Of course, you print the package label and paste it to the top of the package and then take it to the nearest shipping office, or you can specify an order to receive the goods from your home without any extra commission. Regarding Amazon, the story is different. When you have a stock of goods, you ship it full to Amazon or what is known as fulfillment centers. Amazon stores it in its stores, and when someone orders its goods from the Amazon site, Amazon packs it and ships it to the customer without having to take your intervention. But of course Amazon takes the commission more because it does all the storage, packaging and shipping itself.
There is no better selling than others. There are many factors that interfere in determining whether the product will make a profit for it, offset by competition, shipping cost, demand, and margin profit. I used some sites to see the bestseller products during that month, the price displayed, and the profits. It is recommended to start with small products for low shipping cost and therefore increase your profit.
Of course dropshipping is easier compared to Amazon but its profits are very few. The dropshipping means you need to buy a large quantity and store it in your stores. But the problem has become a monument in the field of dropshipping. I advise you to stay away from dropshipping unless you know reliable companies in this area, and they are a few basic and difficult to find.
Just as a simple note, you do not need to be in America or Canada if you have a store in Amazon or ebay. The largest stores in Amazon and eBay are owned by people in Europe and Asia.
