Almost 2 years later, and this video is finally inspiring me to branch out. Thanks for the help!
Hi Casey what about the CPU code that has to be purchased? Does that also apply to Amazon FBM?
Sean John (8 days ago)
Can someone please help me understand how once I list an item do I find it once one a shelf? Is there anywhere in the listing I can put what shelf it’s on or what box it’s in?? Thanks

I sell on eBay and I decided to try Amazon but I felt very scared and intimidated. I have been researching all day for 3 days and I was mega confused. It's nearly 3 in the morning here in the UK and I'm still awake researching, then I came across your video and you have simplified it so much that it sounds simple. Why the heck didn't I see this video 3 days ago, it would of spared me a lot of headache and stress lol. Thank you so much and I think I'm ready to go for it ,and have a good night sleep. Thanks!!! 😄👍

Thank you. I know this is an old video but today i sold my first amazon merchant fulfilled item. I was confused on how to purchase and print. I have been selling on ebay and i got it. I searched you tube and i say you and i now got it. It was very simple, which is what i needed. Thank again.

Never sold on amazon, just eBay and Etsy. How much time does amazon give you to ship an item out once it sales. I want to do this but I also don’t want to be going to the post office every day. Thank you.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
chuckweb66 depends on your handling time. Same as eBay you set it. But honestly. If you wanna be an e-commerce seller. And a successful one. You need 1 day

you have 6573 ACTIVE items in your Amazon inventory? Holy Cow man!
Illinois Picker (4 months ago)
Casey: I've been on eBay for 20 years as a Seller. I'm now adding the dark side to my income streams and becoming an Amazon seller (primarily books). For merchant-fulfilled can we still use our own shipping materials (and service i.e. USPS) to ship our books out? I hope so I have a ton of envelopes to use. Thanks.

Boom. Simple and straightforward. I wish more people would make instructional videos like you!

After selling on Ebay for over 6 years, I just started to sell on Amazon. I just noticed that Amazon has very tiny product descriptions and all other products around your list. Most of buyers don't read description carefully. I have several returns saying products are not as in description. I have exactly description and list on Ebay which has no any such complaints. Amazon just want to sell more products and put a lot of other products around your list. they don't care about your list. Customers returning products and you will pay all the related cost. Amzon sucks!

How to set shipping label size to Zebra 4x6"? I used the default setting, but it is half of 8.5x11.
Fred E. (5 months ago)
I have a Zebra also. They are fairly versatile. Open the label doc in Adobe. Edit...Take a Snapshot (cut and paste the shipping label) File...Print (the 4"x6" image)

I have the seller mobile app on my phone and I want to get back into selling on Amazon,because I use to sell years ago and I was wondering about using the mobile app,because things have really changed since 2005.The things I am looking at selling is a variety of local sells items at local stores.How much trouble do you know of or seen Mobile verses my PC?
Mitch FTB (6 months ago)
What if my item is not on Amazon? Like I can't just look it up and click "Have one to sell"
Blaze Gaming2103 (7 months ago)
Thanks for the info! Can you tell me what the fees are if you do fbm?
RockstarFlipper (7 months ago)
Amazon shows you when you list an item. every category is different. 10%-15% is normal average
Nick (7 months ago)
My amazon seller does not have the option to "buy shipment" how did you get that option?
RockstarFlipper (7 months ago)
What do you mean "Buy shipments". if your selling FBM you just click "Ship item" and print label

Johnson Monroe (11 months ago)
I have a quick question. Is the packaging of the shipment important. Let's say I package the product in a generic brown box and ship it to Amazon or fulfill myself. Thanks
RockstarFlipper (11 months ago)
Doesn't matter

Can paypal be used to collect funds? Or can you link you bank account and have the funds transferred that way? Can you sell without having a creditcard?

Hey there, what about listing products that aren't yet on Amazon? Do you have a video on that? Apparently you need a number of something? What is that number and where do you get one from??

Amazon
Jacoman S (1 year ago)
Thanks Casey, there is so much talk about FBA, that fulfilled By Merchant gets overlooked, I have a sellers account and was just using it to scan items, but gonna try FBM soon.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
FBA makes sense for the logistics, but SOMETIMES FBM can be more profitable if you don't mind the storage and shipping
Philip Stratton (1 year ago)
How do you use a Dymo 450 turbo to print merchant fulfilled label. I can’t find a video tutorial anywhere. I use it for eBay shipping labels and was hoping to be able to use for merchant fulfilled. There are plenty of FBA how to videos but no Merchant fulfilled!
Philip Stratton (1 year ago)
RockstarFlipper no I wish it was that easy. eBay is a lot easier. I can’t get it to work. But thank you for the response
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
I don't use a dymo sorry. Merchant fulfilled label will be the exact same as an eBay label. Just print the label through amazon and it should print the same as your eBay labels.
Clayjarazn (1 year ago)
I did the opposite. I started with doing FBA where I ship my products to Amazon. I am losing money on each sale because the fees are so high. I buy my products from a distributor so I have no say in how much I spend on my products. But I am selling and building my seller rank and reputation. Now I want to try fulfilled by merchant to see if I make money. I probably ship my more expensive products and leave my cheaper products for FBA because I doubt people want to pay shipping for something under $20. But since I have a job, I can't do my shipment until night time and send out tomorrow.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
people will pay shipping on items under $20....everyday I do it. And you absolutely ALWAYS have a say in how much you pay for something.. other suppliers...negotiations.. or stop buying if you can't profit
Steve Lewis (1 year ago)
curious, what were the total fees on the wii game including the shipping cost? Curious what the actual cost versus profit was.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Amazon fees on video games average about 14% so on a $15 total priced game (price + shipping) it woulda been about $2.25 give or take
Zegovia Carrasquilla (1 year ago)
Rockstar do you have a video an how to sell with out barcode I have some items that doesn't use barcodes
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
You have to order UPC off eBay. You can get like 100 for $1
Zegovia Carrasquilla (1 year ago)
Thank you so much this was very helpful.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Very welcome
gunnermccaw (1 year ago)
Thank you Very good information
Bryan Campbell (1 year ago)
Thanks for the tips! My question is you mention your default shipping price but it still showed up as $3.99 on that screen? Not sure what’s going on there. Also, wouldn’t your default price change for heavier items? My concern is also selling internationally, the screens you showed didn’t have an option to prohibit shipping outside of the U.S. where a $3.99 or $4.99 shopping wouldn’t be enough.
Bijan Tahja (1 year ago)
Thank you for this very well instructed video! I was wondering, I want to sell a product on Amazon, but I don't physically have it. I found it on eBay for cheaper and want to sell it on Amazon for more money. Is it possible if you create an Amazon listing for that product, and when someone buys it (through the Amazon listing), you go back to the eBay seller, buy it, and input the buyers shipping information and they ship the item over to the Amazon buyer? I want to make sure this is allowed and I don't need any special labels from Amazon, since I'm not selling through FBA.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Yes thats called drop shipping but DONT DO IT. What happens if the eBay seller runs out and then you have to cancel amazon order...?? you kill your metrics and could get kicked off, but people YES do it everyday. its just risky
Donna Thomas (1 year ago)
Casey. Still confusing to me. Example: trying to sell a book. Gene Marshall Girl Star. If you look this up you will see there are 4 different listings of this book and different prices. I do understand about different issue dates and checking for same isbn number but these look all the same. Confused. Thanks Casey
Candice Metz (1 year ago)
I am Ebay and FBA. Found alot of books that there is not enough profit to FBA it but enough to MF it. Also wanting to prep for Q4 so I can be prepared to ship MF during Q4.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Yeah FBA is def a conveince but sometimes on small profit items, they get eaten up on FBA fees etc.. its pretty close on MF though usually only $.50-$1 difference because of amazons deep shipping to the customer discount. If you can profit MF then I say why not.. HOWEVER if the profit is that small maybe you should look for more margins? I'm not a big book seller I sell maybe a handful per month
Donna Thomas (1 year ago)
Casey I just don't understand about the shipping rate. On ebay I weigh the package and know how much to buy. Can you please explain more details about determining postage on amazon. Thanks
Iris Gross (1 year ago)
I'm about ready to do this for my books. I don't remember if I've ever sold on Amazon but I can't shell out $40/month for the privilege, so I'll start fulfilled by Merchant
Illinois Picker (4 months ago)
It's still $40 for FBA the $40 comes into play if you want to sell more than the free account (which is up to 40 items per mo.). If you don't pay the $40 you will pay .99 per item (plus fees).
MARIE RIDDICK (1 year ago)

Aliza Pansin (1 year ago)
I have a question about the bar code. let say I ask my supplier from Alibaba to send the inventory directly to the amazon warehouse, are they the one who responsible of printing the bar code and stick it to my product? or I can ask amazon to print the bar code and stick it to my product? or is there other option?
Crows Nest (1 year ago)
Ebay only, for now.
Quebec Dynamo (1 year ago)
Great tips! I have a few questions. So when you do buy shipping, that means your just actually buying the paper to stick on your box? I have a small item that I want to sell coming from Alibaba and I was wondering in what package I can ship it in. Can I simply buy small brown envelops at Walmart, stick the "bought shipping" paper sheet on the envelop and send it? Also, where and how do I ship it? will I have extra fees after I've bought the amazon shipping paper printed out? I am completely new to this amazon world. anything would help! Quick pointer as well, I am from Canada and would like to sell on amazon.com. I'm thinking there are most likely other fees to be considered. Thanks again!
Natalie Mesbah (2 months ago)
RockstarFlipper OH!!! So the $.07 is Amazon’s charge for doing this for you?
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
print the label through amazon yes.. then stick it on the package and its paid, drop off to USPS or schedule a pickup. You can buy your own bubble mailers yes you need to
Jose Menjarez (1 year ago)
Thanks for posting this video - very helpful and encouraging! I want to start selling books on AZ with FBM however, I haven't seen whether AZ FBM offers shipping via USPS Media rates which are much less in costs. Does the Media rate show up in the shipping options?
Steven Langdon (1 year ago)
Thanks very simply explained.
Lareene-Dreams (1 year ago)
I've been on eBay for about a year and half just signed up with Amazon a few weeks ago and have my first sale today. Selling books so far. This is very helpful.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Thanks, I hope your doing good on amazon once t gets going
Neo SoulZ (1 year ago)
For books how detailed do you have to be for listing
Danny Anderson (1 year ago)
For bigger items do you need to use brand new, unmarked box's? I noticed boxes sold on Uline and Amazon are a bit spendy.
Danny Anderson (1 year ago)
Thank you. The information and the videos are outstanding thank you.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
No you dont. you can use other boxes
Francheska Spero (1 year ago)
please,where is your video about how you buying at China and selling on Amazon new staff?
bob hobby (1 year ago)
Do you read all the terms and conditions , I'm afraid they might slip a sneaky term in there and control all your assets and basically control your account would that happen ?
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
What do you mean they would control your account?
Valerie Foster (1 year ago)
This really helps!
The Tae Kwon Doe (1 year ago)
So, is there a monthly fee to sell as fulfilled by merchant?
Neo SoulZ (1 year ago)
The Tae Kwon Doe there is a few of $1 per sold item
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Yes the fee is $40 regardless of FBA or FBM.. its for amazon pro seller. It allows you to sell unlimited numbers of items, whichever method you choose
Rudi Storm (1 year ago)
I am 90% Amz, 10% ebay.
bob hobby (1 year ago)
Rudi Storm how much u make a month fam
Moonlighter 68 (1 year ago)
Do you have the monthly fee with Amazon if you do not use the FBA?
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Pro sellers accounts are $39.99 a month for FBM or FBA dosnt matter.
Blanca Perez (1 year ago)
Do you have to pay a fee to sign up?
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
$39.99 a month for a pro seller account but unlimited listings as opposed to ebays insertion fees
Rebecca Shetter (1 year ago)
I started with Amazon and found this really easy to list; no pictures, just click and list. I would like to see how to list an item like old cookbooks that are not found on Amazon. How do you list a not found item. Thanks Rockstar always something new to learn from your great videos.

Kim Sager (2 years ago)
I have done MF years ago had over 1000 books listed and sold pretty well there. I paid the 49.95 I think it was a month to avoid the additional 99 cent per item charge. I hated all the penny book sellers lol. However there are plenty of great finds to resell books I sold a 6 page kids origami book for $70 and biggest sale was $499 how to real estate book from the 80s shipped that one to China (I was nervous wreck until getting feedback lol) anyways closed the book store down after about year of doing it due to a move and just took off from selling online overall for a while. When I came back I have been doing strictly eBay for last few years trying to get to full time but that's just finally happening now between eBay and local sales. Really want to get Amazon going again especially since hubbies new found love of video games. I don't understand the whole gated ungated unlocked stuff though. I don't recall there even being such a thing back when I was doing books. Can anyone sell video games right from start? Thanks (wish I could just use my old account but literally don't remember email or even username I think it's was thisandthatsbooks ... I sold so many places back in the day and had so many slightly different names. Also many things were in my exes name and haven't spoken to him in like 7 years ha... that's how long since I was doing amazon ;)
Kim Sager (2 years ago)
I am curious about the whole getting unlocked in categories?

Outdoor Wrangler (2 years ago)
eBay only, I have a amazon account & was going to start FBA first but then they did that restriction for new sellers during 4th quarter & I started eBay. I'm focusing all my time on eBay but I might start looking at amazon again. It's just that the storage fees are so high, but MF don't have to worry with that. Thanks Casey keep on rocking them sales.👍👍👍🤠
Clayjarazn (1 year ago)
The restriction for 4th quarter  is not for pro sellers (FBA & FBM). It is restricted to sellers who don't pay the $39.99 pro seller fee.
Richard Mohn (2 years ago)
Thanks for sharing this ! thats Really cool , that they show you the current lowest price .. I had allways imagined that Amazon was A waay more complicated and intimidating platform than eBay .. I havent really looked into it as much .. But Im going to For sure give it a shot ; esoecially when I sell so many games ... and Books

harleymax01 (2 years ago)
What if an item you want to sell is not on amazon. How do you create a new listing? I have a ton of ac adapters and when I would look them up it shows no results found.
Siyuan Zheng (2 years ago)
Just a warning for video game and book sellers DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT list your items as new items. You will get perm suspended from Amazon. Amazon's bot is acting up, and I saw a lot of book sellers are getting suspended for copyright and infringement violation. Otherwise, Amazon sells thing pretty fast too
Kelly Snodgrass (2 years ago)
Amazon FBA first and then Ebay. I went backwards.
PA DAY TRIPPER (2 years ago)
Thanks Casey! I have been doing FBA for about a year but never considered Merchant. Im about to get hit with the new fees in February. I think I will be doing this now. Ebay is my main thing, but Amazon has its place. I have learned so much from you since finding your channel. Thank You again!

question I am unable to print my shipping on some of my items I sale and I have to purchase my postage at the PO can you tell me why this happens?
Rebecca Shetter (1 year ago)
I had the same problem; go out and come in and try again. You will find its cheaper if you must to go to the United Postal Service on line and and check out click and ship; then fill out the fields and hit print shipping label. When you go to the post office they charge a lot to ship everything.. You can also go directly to pay pal and print out your label. I hope this helped. Open up you device printer.... on your computer and hook a direct line to the printer. Also check to see if you have the right printer choosen with the one that appears when you choose the amount you want to ship; this is the little window that comes up when you hit buy shipping. There sometimes something wrong on our side with our computers and sometimes it is pay pal or amazon or ebay and it just will not print. Also check to see if they paid; you don't want to ship anything out without already being paid. I hope this helps.
Carmelita Ethridge (2 years ago)
on my Merchant fullfield

is the shipping always a flat rate?
Dave Norman (2 years ago)
Iris Gross yes most the time
Glenn Christensen (2 years ago)
I do FBA mostly books. I have never listed the way you showed on this video. I have never needed to add my own photos, although that is an option. Listing on Amazon is the easy part, the shipping in to the warehouse is what I truly dread. Now that they require box content info is just soooo aggravating, I've thought about quitting Amazon because of it.
K Lewis (2 years ago)
Is that how you really add products on amazon? :D I click "add a product," scan a bar code set my price and only describe used items and move to the next! I was a FBA seller before ebay I guess I started backwards, amazon is much easier. I however have never MF anything. Going to start doing that soon aswell. thanks for the video.

Diamond Chamberlin (2 years ago)
Holy crap ! It's that easy ?
James Pace (2 years ago)
RockstarFlipper amazon listing is easy. The problem with amazon is the buyers are pickier also like books there are variations. I see countless book sellers selling first addition and also selling it in the normal or big print copy.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Once your registered and ready to go YES.. thats for fulfilled by merchant (YOU) remember. FBA is a little more complicated. Once your ready for FBA i have a video on that also that I'm going to update
