Amazon FBA Seller Questions Answered: Bundles Wholesale Retail Arbitrage & MORE

amazon listings Aug 04, 2020

Running an Amazon business isn’t a get rich quick scheme. It’s an actual business. And whether you’re running an Ecommerce business or a brick-and-mortar store, all legitimate businesses have a learning curve. You’ll definitely encounter some confusion here and there or some hurdle you don’t know how to jump over. But that’s okay! While the struggle is certainly real, so is growth and profit - and asking the right questions about overcoming challenges is part of what will lead you to success.

In this episode, I answer some of your most pressing questions about starting, running, and growing your Amazon business. I reveal how much money you need to get started on Amazon and discuss the other requirements you’ll need to meet to start your online store. I discuss bundling strategies, including vetting components and monitoring your competitors’ products. I also discuss getting the process of GTIN exemptions, brand registry, and trademarking, describe the benefits of setting up a store for your Amazon business and explain why today is the perfect time to start selling on Amazon.

“Start by not expecting money but learning the process. As soon as you’re comfortable shipping to Amazon and you know the process, then start wholesaling.”- Kristin Ostrander
