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.
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.
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!
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?
It seems like everything i want to list. I get a statement Listing Limitations Apply. And need approval. How can I get around that Or i I try to list something only to find out that its not in the Amazon catalog. How do i correct that. Im full filled by merchant
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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
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?
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!
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?
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.
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 ;)
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.👍👍👍🤠
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
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
