The Ultimate Guide To Amazon FBA

Becoming an Amazon Seller is one of the easiest businesses you can start. Overall, there is a relatively small investment upfront, you have the backing of a big brand like Amazon and you can literally get started today. Here are some commonly asked questions and products that will help you get started.

WHAT IS AN AMAZON FBA BUSINESS?

Ultimately, you have an online store that is run by Amazon. You find products at a discounted rate (clearance, stacking sales, thrifting, ect.), ship them to Amazon and mark them up to the prices they are currently selling for. When a customer purchases one of your items Amazon ships your item from their warehouse. Amazon then takes a cut for storing, shipping and marketing your product. You receive the remaining profit.

This really is a super easy business model, and can be really rewarding to run! It is much easier to start than an independent e-commerce site because you have the traffic and credibility of Amazon.
