In this blog, I am going to break down the exact Amazon Business Model I follow to reach $10K + months every month & create long-term sustainability!
So you want to learn how to build a sustainable Amazon business and the strategy I still use today???
Well, first, let me tell you a little about my discovery of this hybrid model and what wholesale bundles are…
I started in Retail Arbitrage.
It’s great, fun, and exciting. I LOVE shopping.
But the downside that I saw rather quickly as I continued to grow and grow was…
It’s NOT sustainable.
As my business continued to grow, I outgrew the ability to continue going out to get products. Even when I hired a full-time associate, we were both working 50-60 + hours per week to try and keep inventory full. It was just not feasible.
I was exhausted, missed spending time with my family, and knew something had to change.
At the level of retail arbitrage, sustainability is non-existent.
A major curveball was thrown at us. Half-priced products and spiked profit margins were not the case. Instead, most of the product prices we found were about the same as you can get in the store.
So, you may be asking yourself, “what changed? How did you make wholesale work?”
Well, we started innovating, coming up with ideas of what items will complement the main popular item and bring more value to this product bundle - an irresistible offer so we can “up” the price?
Finally, our first bundle was created in 2015, Shopkin Toys.
These toys were flying off the shelves! However, we were not making much of a profit on them, in reality, we were actually losing money. We needed to do something fast!
And BAM! It hit us right as we were shopping in Walmart.
Add a kids’ carry cart to complement the Shopkins Toys, and so when we did. Born was our first wholesale bundle ever.
We increased the price, listed it on Amazon, and were finally able to make a hefty margin on a product we were originally losing money on.
They are highly complementary items that you source from wholesale vendors and/or private label products. These products are sold together in a high-value product bundle you created that provides your buyers value, speed, and convenience.
Other terms used to describe wholesale bundles would be gift sets, gift baskets, or kits.
Essentially a wholesale bundle is an entire collection of 2-6 products that are a natural fit in both function and use. The perfect wholesale bundle would be a product combination that customers often purchase together like shampoo and conditioner or peanut butter and jelly.
These bundles make life easier for the 1-click ordering, free prime Amazon customer, and they make life better for you as a seller because you face less competition and can earn better profit margins.
So through my journey of finding Amazon business sustainability, I fell in love with wholesale bundles, and the wholesale bundle system was born.
Why do I love wholesale bundles so much??? I thought you would never ask…
You get to OWN THE BUY BOX!
Owning the buy box keeps all worries at bay.
I never have to worry about Amazon jumping on my listing.
I never have to enter another price war again.
Bundling eliminates the competition. I can sell fewer products because I don’t have to play the volume game where you have to compete to see who sells the most of the same products. That just seems like so much work. I rather up my price, up my profit numbers, and push out less product.
And you can too!
If you already have an Amazon FBA account - great. Adding wholesale bundles to your FBA business doesn’t take much effort.
The only skills and capital you need to add or start WHOLESALE BUNDLING is ….
An uncanny ability to spend an email and $300 or less of capital.
And lastly, there are thousands of vendors that have low or no minimum orders for wholesale.
So don’t limit yourself due to your money mindset. Instead, flip the script and don’t let it keep you from taking the leap to reaching your success!
It is your one-stop shop for all your Amazon business sustainability needs!
In this course, I walk you through each step of the wholesale bundle framework. The same framework I still use today and fuels my 7-figure Amazon business.
Using wholesale bundles in your Amazon business strategy allows you to own the Buy Box 100% of the time without the risk of competition decreasing your price or your profit. When done correctly, you'll be the only seller on your listing.
This makes Wholesale Bundles the BEST Amazon Business Model of all time!

SO… Why do wholesale bundles work so well on Amazon???
They work so well on Amazon because your customers are looking for 3 things…
Speed, Convenience, and Variety
Shoppers are busy! They do not have time and they do not want to spend time shopping around for the items they need. Bundles make the purchasing process so much easier for your customer. It gives them a fast and more convenient way to shop.
The product bundle that you provide your buyers, eliminates the need for endless scrolling of items they need and adding them to the cart. In one click your customer can get what they need from your bundle.
Plus, customers are very responsive to wholesale bundles because it’s an effortless purchasing process for them. And customers really appreciate this. It’s a TIME SAVER for them and for you.
