Great idea with trade show, no show!
Usama Masood (4 months ago)
Your 4th point was to check out amazon best sellers! How do we set up wholesale accounts with the distributors of those products if we are not supposed to be selling products that are already selling on amazon? Hope you can answer since i'm slightly confused at this part. Please & thank you!
Usama Masood (4 months ago)
+Full-Time FBA Aaah I see! I was just a little confused about that but thanks for clearing it.
Full-Time FBA (4 months ago)
Why are you thinking you're "not supposed to be selling products that are already selling on amazon." That's not a problem unless you're creating a new sales page for those items. If you sell on the main sales page for that item you're fine.

I was wondering how good or bad worldwide brands.com is? recently heard about it and it seems you can search any product or brand. but haven't yet paid 300 for the membership yet as I was wondering if it's any good before I do
Full-Time FBA (10 months ago)
I don't recommend them for dropshipping, but for buying direct from wholesalers to sell on Amazon, it's been good. I like that they tell you which wholesalers are pre-approved to sell to Amazon sellers. Find out more here: www.fulltimefba.com/worldwidebrands.

man ....I have been having a hard time finding reputable suppliers so this vid was a great help! thanks
Full-Time FBA (10 months ago)
Happy to help!
Angie Perez (10 months ago)
This is an old video so you may not answer, but I am wondering do you have to have a business address for distributors to deal with you? Or can I have cases delivered to my house?
Angie Perez (10 months ago)
Full-Time FBA yay you answered thank you!
Full-Time FBA (10 months ago)
You can use your home address and that will work just fine. IF your order is huge you might need to let them know that you need a lift gate for the delivery (since a truck can't back in to deliver your stuff to a loading dock.

Shamim Mohd (1 year ago)
Hey stephen. I live in the middle east and have started online arbitrage on amazon. My question is whether i can find wholesalers online who would be willing to do business with someone living outside us? Hope i am clear
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
Yes, you can find wholesalers who will be willing to do that.

Hi. Good info. I have found some extras thanks to you. Also I think you have a good resemblance to Robert Kirkman from the walking dead? Keep up the good work.
Hanna Ski (1 year ago)
Thanks for the video. If you buy directly from the manufacturer or from a distributor (supplier) whose brand or category is restricted do THEY BOTH give you the necessary documentation to become ungated?
Hanna Ski (1 year ago)
Is the manufacturer better just because it has better prices?
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
They both can, but the manufacturer is better.
John Docherty (1 year ago)
I am just starting out in this business.i have look at many video and this is so good simple to the point. thanks mate

Question: How do you get discounts from distributors? Many of the distributors I’ve ran into have their prices half off suggested retail price, which will not work on Amazon were prices seem to already be half off suggested price. This is my biggest problem right now. I don’t understand why’d I’d go distributors over manufacturers, it will be harder and higher min, but I could meet needed margins.
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
The more you buy, the higher discount you should get from a wholesaler.

Hello How can i see the best sellers for uk? When i go to your link it shows me for usa.Is there a setting i can do for uk?thank you
RLS0812 (1 year ago)
LOL - this guy must live in a large city ... my "town" is the largest in the county, and it has never had a trade show. I would have to drive over 4.5 hours to get to the nearest trade show.
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
It's worth the drive if you have a trade show 4.5 hours away. Could find multiple sources of profits.

Steven Moormann (1 year ago)
Hey Stephen, I have been trying to get an answer to this and I can't figure it out and it may sound stupid...if I am having the manufacturer ship directly to Amazon fulfillment centers with my shipping label I paid for and printed then I shouldn't be paying the manufacturer for shipping right?
Steven Moormann (1 year ago)
Full-Time FBA I should of specified...i meant the shipping labels Amazon provide me to get them to their warehouse since we have to put the ship from address
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
If your manufacturer agrees to ship directly to Amazon and use your shipping labels via the shipping company you pick, then you don't need to pay them any shipping fees, but handling fees are possible (to cover the cost of the boxes, packing time, etc).
Yesenia Gonzale (1 year ago)
Thank you so much...I have a question I hope you can help me..I am a new seller in amazon. I am planing to go to texas and get some items from ca hineese distributor wholesale , but those items don't have upc barcode to check if they are not restricted by amazon..some do have upc barcode, but when I scan them on the amazon app nothing shows ..so how would I be able to know if they are not restricted? I dont want to buy without knowing if I will be able to sell it on amazon and without knowing how much profit I can get out of them..I hope to hear from you thank you.

excellent info
Doug McGaghie (1 year ago)
Where on Amazon's Best sellers page, can I find the supplier for that item? I found the page and the categories but I cannot find who the manufacturer/supplier is of that item? Can that information be found somewhere else? Thanks
Doug McGaghie (1 year ago)
Full-Time FBA That was a bad example because they are also the FBA seller. If they are the manufacturer and the seller, would this be an example of private labeling?
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
Looks like the manufacturer name is Radha Beauty.
Doug McGaghie (1 year ago)
The only thing that I am seeing below the title of the product is customer reviews and answered questions. Here is an example. This link is to the #7 best selling product in Beauty and Personal Care. I just picked this product at random. How can I find the manufacturer? Thanks https://www.amazon.com/Radha-Beauty-USDA-Certified-Organic/dp/B00LNOV8JO/ref=zg_bs_beauty_7?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=FM88C6H4X6F6ZNWT2BJE&th=1
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
You have to look at each item's product page and usually the manufacturer's name is either right above or right below the product title. Then you can google the manufacturer's name to find the contact info. Hope this helps. For more info on wholesale check out: www.fulltimefba.com/wholesaleformula

very helpful video, thank you! besides the options you mention, I tried Matchory to find wholesalers and it was less effort with more efficient results. they found me really good manufacturers, have you heard of it before?

droshky (1 year ago)
I don't think so. Matchory is for finding factories. If you want to buy brands, you should contact the brands directly. Factories mostly sell blank stuff for you to add your brand
Doug McGaghie (1 year ago)
droshky And I can use this for FBA? Would it be possible to find the top 100 selling items for each category and then cross reference them with Wholesale Brands inventory of suppliers and then connect the two do that I could be selling top items? Could that be possible? The suppliers that I currently have access to, have items that would yield me a profit of $1 and had a sellers rank in excess of 100,000. I’m looking for much better
droshky (1 year ago)
Yeah, you tell them one product you need and they find the best manufacturer for that product (different to a supplier list, that has everyone)
droshky (1 year ago)
seems cool for dropshipping 👍
Anne Flannery (1 year ago)
Are these the methods you used to find your manufacturers/distributors? I've looked at packaging and actually taken pictures so that I have the manufacturer's name, address etc. I haven't tried the "Tradeshow no-show" though. Would you recommend ASD as one of the biggest lists?
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
I've used all methods to find wholesale accounts. Some work more for them than others.... but other people find great success with the ones I don't as much. I would think ASD has the biggest lists... and registration for ASD is free... so you can register and get the wholesale contacts, but never actually go to the event - although I recommend going someday!

I need the right pricing software to list my wholesale items on Amazon. I'm approved with 2 large electronics distributors.
Mike Jay (1 year ago)
Hello Stephen. Do wholesalers generally sell to regular people? Do smaller wholesalers permit it and not others? I emailed a few wholesalers but haven't heard back yet.
Mike Jay (1 year ago)
Stephen, thank you for this. I really appreciate the replies :)
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
With wholesale, I average around 50% ROI... so while I do have items with 100% ROI, I also have some with 25% ROI.
Mike Jay (1 year ago)
Thank you Stephen, already have my sales tax certificate. I heard back from a couple wholesellers, but their prices leave very little room for profit. I'm passing on anything that isn't at least 80% roi. What are you thoughts for how risky new sellers like myself should be? Is it realistic to expect to find 100% roi products from wholesellers? I've only been doing amazon FBA for 4 months :)
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
Oh yes! Some wholesalers have minimum orders of $500, but others have minimum orders of $100... and will sell to anyone with a proper sales tax certificate. To get your sales tax certificate, you can go to www.fulltimefba.com/states and pick your state and find the link on the next page to get it.
Tracey Poland (1 year ago)
Hi ... thanks for your content! This may sound like a silly question but I've narrowed down a couple products and looking at overseas wholesalers and wondered if you can send products directly to Amazon for fba or do you have it sent to yourself and then send it to Amazon? TIA 😊
Tracey Poland (1 year ago)
Thank you!
Full-Time FBA (1 year ago)
I would recommend sending the first order to your house so you can inspect the quality of your order. Then, I'd send the order's to a prep company who will prep the inventory the right way. A prep company like www.fulltimefba.com/my-inventory-team.
Billy (2 years ago)
For some one starting do you recommend Amazon or starting up a drop shipping website?
Full-Time FBA (2 years ago)
Amazon 100%. I don't recommend dropshipping. It sounds like easy money, but there are a lot of potential problems when dealing with dropshipping Amazon products.
Piglatinsuperstar (2 years ago)

Can you recommend a script I can follow or start with in talking to wholesale suppliers? A lot of suppliers are not open to sales on Amazon, or they are selling directly on Amazon already. I am just trying to come up with a script to introduce myself and ask if I can be an approved vendor, etc. But I'm kind of a beginner, so what else can I say to improve my chances? Thank you.
Christopher Gregson (1 year ago)
Hey. Have you made any progress? I am kind of a beginner as well now. This is 5 months old but maybe you might have some good info!

Full-Time FBA Its a French word, adapted from Latin, its best to say it the French way. its like somebody telling you how to say your name, then when corrected they tell you that you're both right. my law lecturer actually did that a few weeks ago and I spent 20 mins arguing with him about how to say my own name. a French name: Dondre, pronounced Dondré, he said Dondra. Its very frustrating to listen to.
Full-Time FBA (2 years ago)
We're both right. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/niche

The best seller list on Amazon shows the top 100, which I would expect would be difficult to compete in. I'd rather know what the top 500 or top 1000 is. Is there a simple way to determine the top 500 or top 1000 instead of just top 100 by category? My thought had been to just try to get lucky, to browse random items in categories until I stumble across one that is a top 1000, that seems terribly time consuming though since it may not even be an item I can get or sell.
Johnny SwaG (2 months ago)
Yeah, Amazon surely selling 99% top 100

This was great, been searching for "cheap dropshipping" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - *MyOnlineSelling. Com* ? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my friend got excellent success with it.?
Tom Barrows (2 years ago)
Surely just going to trade shows is exactly where everyone is going so there's a lot of competition?

WOW you were at Game 4. INCREDIBLE. Love the video. I am just starting out in the FBA world and would love to connect. I have an e commerce site that sells one thing in particular right now and looking to do do a TON of FBA stuff. Your video is very enlightening and informative. Nice work Stephen!

I'd wager that looking at product boxes and also at Amazon Best Sellers, are sources that most budding wholesalers would overlook! Thanks!

Ken Polino Going a little bit further with creative sourcing can set yourself apart from other online sellers.
