Sourcing from Ali baba only could get him in trouble depending on his market place. If he’s working in USA or the UK, he’ll have to clear customs and all to get his products in those targeted markets.

  1. Currently, most sellers on Amazon select and purchase suppliers from China. However, many suppliers in China are not source suppliers; they are just distributors of source factories. This will result in Amazon sellers not getting the lowest prices, and as a consequence, costs cannot be effectively controlled.
  2. A capital range of 2.2k-4k is sufficient to start your Amazon business. However, choosing which products to sell on Amazon is a process that needs to be taken seriously, as selecting the wrong product can result in poor sales.
  3. Once you have sourced the products you want, create an Amazon listing after completing all the preliminary work.
  4. The investment required for US FBA wholesale can vary greatly, depending on factors such as product selection, volume, and marketing. Purchasing inventory often entails a significant investment.

New sellers can achieve success in the market and earn substantial profits, but this requires thorough research, competitive pricing, effective marketing, and the provision of excellent customer service.

As a beginner, focus on gaining brand recognition by building relationships with legitimate wholesalers, setting up professional seller accounts, maintaining strong metrics, and ensuring your product listings are accurate and compliant with Amazon’s policies.

  1. To find suppliers, consider online platforms like Alibaba or reach out to manufacturers directly. Look for reputable sources with good reviews and consider attending trade shows for networking.

  2. Starting with 2-4k is feasible for some products, but research costs like sourcing, shipping, and Amazon fees. It’s crucial to carefully budget and possibly start with a small product range.

  3. After getting your items, create listings on your Amazon seller account. Optimize product titles, descriptions, and images for better visibility.

  4. You can sell items through Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon). Ship your inventory to Amazon, and they handle storage, packing, and shipping. You’ll still manage your listings and marketing on your Amazon seller account.
