Selling on Amazon doesn't only give you instant credibility as an online seller; it also helps to boost your revenue. When buyers are quick to believe that you're credible when they read you've a well made Amazon product listing, they're more likely to purchase from you. Yes, of course you do pay for each sale you bring in but it can prove to be well worth the extra traffic it gives you. In this article, we'll go over a few simple steps you can take to increase your sales as an affiliate.
One of the first things you'll want to do before selling on Amazon is to research any products you may be interested in selling on the site. Look for sellers who are selling high competition products or those that have recently launched. These are the types of products that sell best on Amazon. You can easily find these listings by going to the category search on the Amazon main page and searching for high competition or new product categories. You can then sort the list to show all the items with a low to medium competition level, those with high competition but with a lot of buyers and lastly those with very few buyers.
After doing this, you should look for sellers with high monthly sales. To do this, go to the "products sorted" drop down on the top right hand side of the page. Once there click the link " Monthly Sales." A new drop down menu will appear and you can choose the "Search by category" drop down. This will display a list of all the categories that have Amazon as an affiliate. Click on each one and look at its Amazon sales to find out which items are best sellers.
Now you can start selling! When you get to the "order management" drop down menu, you will see the drop down menu that says " Fees for Order Management". If you have set up your store correctly, you should see the fee that is displayed in red. If you haven't yet set it up, take some time to read about how to set up your store and how to start selling on Amazon.
If you have already set up your store, Amazon will display an up-to-date inventory of the items you have for sale in their warehouses. To see what the available items are, go to your "orders management" area and then click on the link for "available." You will also see what the status of your orders are. If there are any problems with the order or if you want to change the shipping address or contact information, just click the "change order" link that is displayed next to the available item.
Once you have all your orders in order, it is important to set up your Amazon fulfillment center to accept payments and transfer the order to your customers. The way that this works is that when you are setting up your FBA account, you will fill out an online form. This forms will be needed when you set up your Amazon fulfillment centers. You will need to enter in your customer information so that Amazon can verify that they can process the sale. Once you are finished with the forms, you will be able to see if your order is approved and if it is, you will be able to process your customer's order and begin selling on Amazon.
