If you’re worried that you’ve missed the e-commerce boat, don’t worry. It’s just getting moving. While several e-commerce companies like Ebay, Shopify, Walmart, and Etsy can make selling products online easy, in my experience, the best way to make money online is with Amazon. Amazon is a huge opportunity for those who want to join the world of e-commerce. In 2020, Amazon raked in $3.86 billion in revenue—over half of which was fueled by third-party sales.
The Amazon Opportunity
The market is big, but it’s not hard to see why it’s become so profitable. By 2018, Amazon shipped over 5 billion items. Amazon is the largest online retailer in the U.S. Amazon is an e-commerce giant and is gearing up to move into groceries and physical stores. While Amazon has a lot going for it, there’s one important factor Amazon has to overcome if it wants to remain as dominant as it has been in the past. Even with Amazon’s huge potential, there’s only a limited number of sellers that can participate in the online sales game. Amazon claims that 90% of Amazon’s customers don’t have to go to the marketplace to make a purchase. That’s because Amazon keeps a very tight grip on the sales process. If you want to sell on Amazon, you need to have an Amazon business profile.
How to Sell on Amazon
Shopping on Amazon is not as complicated as it seems, nor is selling on Amazon. All it takes is a little planning and a little drive. What I love about Amazon is the sheer number of products available on the website. Instead of only needing to invest in a handful of items to gain success, you can focus on making an assortment of different products. Here’s how I make money from selling on Amazon: Step 1: Find the right products It may sound cliché, but you can’t sell anything if you don’t know what people are looking for. This means you’ll have to try and figure out which products your customers want. You can start by searching Amazon for keywords like “camera” or “woodworking” or “toy”. Then make a list of all the products that pop up on your search.
Where to Find Products to Sell
The best place to start when trying to find products to sell on Amazon is by looking at keywords, which are the words people search for to find products online. For example, if you search for “napkins” you’ll see thousands of pages with products that match your keyword. If you’re in need of a napkin for a party, you can sell those napkins right on Amazon to make some extra cash. Once you’ve found a product that you want to sell on Amazon, search for it on the website or mobile app, and make sure it meets Amazon’s guidelines for selling products. Here’s what I did. I searched for my product with the term “Novelty Paper Towels” and found it under the “Book” category.
What Kind of Products to Sell
Most brands who sell on Amazon have been successful due to its sales per unit (SPU) approach to pricing. Amazon creates products in small batches, which creates a natural scarcity and drives up prices. To get the most out of this type of pricing, it’s important to build a trusted brand. This will give you more value to your product. Most brands find that their best sellers are in the $9-16 price range. In this range, customers can trust the quality of the product. These products also provide good margins, which means the ROI (return on investment) is high. So, what products should you consider selling on Amazon? Here are three things you need to know: Pricing There are dozens of factors that go into the price of your product.

One way to do this is to test prices yourself. If you’re not worried about your product being in stock on Amazon, you can price your products aggressively and test the pricing yourself.
Promoting and Marketing Your Product
One of the biggest challenges of selling on Amazon is marketing. So to help, I’ve created the list below of things you can do to help promote your product. Find high-quality photos that match the design of your item (it’s OK if they’re your photos). Tag your product using key words that are relevant to your product. Place a call to action (CTA) at the end of the description to get potential customers to contact you. Edit your description so that it includes important details, such as how long the shipping will take and how much the product costs. Provide details about your price and shipping. This will make customers more likely to buy the product from you. Add the Amazon URL to your website.
