How To Work From Home As An Amazon Seller

July 9th, 2014

Amazon is amazing. About a third of all Internet commerce takes place on the Amazon website, and having your items listed there can really boost your online presence. What’s more, Amazon.com is quite generous: there’s no listing fee to worry about and the sales commission is comparatively low – which is good news for sellers.

So here’s how to become an Amazon Seller:

  1. Choose a selling plan. You should first start with an Individual selling plan if you plan on selling fewer than 40 items a month. You’ll have to pay 99¢ per item you sell, plus other selling fees depending on the category of the items you sell.

Once you progress in your sales volume, you can then graduate to selling as a Professional. You can sell as many items as you want for a $39.99 fee a month, plus other selling fees.

As a Professional, you’ll have more categories of items open to you. You’ll have lots of special benefits, such as customized shipping rates, listing benefits, and bulk upload and order reports.

  1. Register your account. You’ll need to provide your business name, address, and contact information (including a phone number through which you can be contacted during the registration process). You need to have an internationally-chargeable credit card with a valid billing address. You should also have your tax identity info ready.

You can then set up your account settings during the registration. You can indicate your shipping and notification preferences.

  1. List the items you are selling. Find the same product on sale in Amazon, and then click the Sell Yours Here button. You then need to indicate the quantity, the condition, and the price. In some categories, you first need to ask approval from Amazon.

You can’t sell items that come with legal restrictions, such as prescription drugs. You should check out the Amazon rules as to which items have special rules regarding sales.

Make sure that you provide extensive product descriptions of your items so you’ll have more potential customers. Your pictures should be sharp and presentable as well.

  1. Manage your orders. You’ll be notified via text or email when a customer has placed an order for your item. Then you need to arrange for shipping. For your convenience, you can have Amazon handle your delivery duties for you (Fulfillment by Amazon) for a fee. You’ll only need to send your items to the Amazon fulfillment centers.
  2. Get paid. Once you have confirmed that the item has been delivered, your customer’s credit card is charged and then the funds are transferred to your payments account after Amazon has deducted its fees.

Using Amazon’s Tools

The great thing about Amazon is that it provides you with a lot of tools to make your life easier. The Fulfillment service is just one tool, and there are many others you can use.

  • With the Amazon Webstore, you can come up with professional-looking eCommerce websites.
  • You can make use of Product Ads and Sponsored Products to make your listings more visible to your potential customers.
  • Amazon Payments can make the payment process stress-free too.

Thousands of people make their living selling items on Amazon. Do your homework, and you can be one of them too.
