Amazon Seller Questions Answered - GTIN Exemption - UPC - Wholesale [2020]

amazon listings q4 Jul 06, 2020

No matter how experienced, new, or something in-between you are, whether you’re reaping seven figures a year or just thinking of starting an online business on Amazon, you’ll find yourself in need of clarity and directions. I know, because even I still ask for guidance despite all my experience in e-commerce. As entrepreneurs, it’s important to reach out and ask questions. In fact, it’s the first step you need to take if you want to grow and expand your online business.

In today’s episode, I answer some of the questions that were asked during our Ask Me Anything Amazon event. I discuss how the pandemic affected people’s buying behavior and explain why it’s a great time to start selling on Amazon in spite of the coronavirus. I explore how you can scale and grow your business through diversification and changing your Amazon business model and share how you can rank your products on Amazon. I also describe how you can find wholesale vendors, explain why I started wholesale bundling, and reveal the amazing benefits I received when I started to outsource my business.

“Anybody can benefit from coaching. If you have questions that need answers, no matter the level you’re at, ask for help.” - Kristin Ostrander
