How Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) Works

This is not going to be a technical lecture and it’s very exciting because this is the stuff that we spent hours of research on. This entire process is very foreign to anybody. And when you do it for the first time, it is very time consuming and exhausting to understand the whole workflow. We created this article to make sure that you’re not wasting time or money.

It’s another form of E-Commerce but it is completely different in terms of how much it costs to get start in terms of the profit margin. Selling on Amazon versus selling on your own Shopify store. You don’t have to go to UPS and ship out like a product that you sell on the internet. You don’t have to do any of the hard work. You don’t have to collect the payment.

I am from x country, can I sell on Amazon? The answer is absolutely yes, you can. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world you can sell on Amazon. There are different Amazon Marketplaces. Amazon USA, Amazon Canada, or Amazon UK, however Amazon UK is growing potential and has the most opportunity. Just to clear things, Amazon FBA is not drop-shipping.

Amazon FBA is private labeling.

What is private labeling? Private labeling is basically where we slap our private label, our logo, our brand onto a product and then call it our own. So first, we need to find a profitable product. What is a profitable product? A profitable product is a product that is on Amazon, that has demand, people want to buy it, there is a stable market for it, and generating revenue.

We find profitable product by using product research tools. We recommend Amazing Selling Machine. You must have heard of it or you must be using it. There are obviously many many different product research tools out there but in our opinion Amazing Selling Machine is the absolutely best. It’s the one that a lot of sellers trust the most.

Now, we find a supplier or a manufacturer to wholesale our products. Let’s say our product is a Medical Box. So, we will contact suppliers usually via a website called alibaba.com. Then, we go and send that product to an Amazon Fulfillment Center. After this, Amazon will pack, fulfill and ship all our products for us. So, we don’t ever have to see or touch our products ever.

In short, first we find a profitable product via Amazing Selling Machine. Second thing, we find a wholesale supplier of our product. Third we go ahead and ship those packages over to an Amazon Fulfillment Center.

Well, what makes this Amazon FBA so powerful? Because unlike dropshipping where you have to spend money and get lucky and find a niche. With Amazon, you don’t have to work and you don’t have to test anything because it’s already profitable product. You don’t have to worry about testing. We’re basically just selling on their marketplace. Get your product to Amazon Warehouse, make a listing and start selling on Amazon.
