Course Description

This course is designed to inspire those students who want to start a business on Amazon, either part-time or full-time. This course will cover the most relevant aspects of the FBA Program, in a fun and engaging way. You will discover strategies that will allow you to create a business that can profit and grow. I started selling on Amazon part-time, then I gradually started to increase the amount of products I sent to Amazon's Fulfillment Centers. The more time I dedicated to Amazon, by sourcing products and sending them in, the more money I made. The money you make on Amazon can vary from month to month, some of the determining factors are:

  • The consistency in which you are sending products to Amazon.
  • The demand for the products you are sending in.
  • Being able to competitively price your products.
  • Knowing the best time to buy inventory, sales increase dramatically during the 3rd and 4th quarters.

This course will guide you through the basics of the Fulfillment by Amazon Platform.

  • You will learn how to create your seller account.
  • The difference between selling as an individual or professional.
  • The steps you must follow to sell in closed categories.
  • I will show you how to source products at low prices and sell them for a profit.
  • You will learn how to add products to your Amazon store and price them competitively.
  • Determine if you want to ship sold products using FBA or Merchant Fulfilled.
  • The different FBA fees and how they are deducted from your account.
  • Use Amazon guidelines to prepare and ship products to the Fulfillment Center.
  • Supplies you will need to prep and ship your products to Amazon.
  • Additional tips that will help you create the Amazon store you want.

Building your Amazon business will require you to be creative when choosing products to sell. The more time and dedication you put into your Amazon business, the quicker you can profit and grow your business. The Amazon FBA Program is an awesome platform for entrepreneurs who might not have any sales or marketing experience to start building the type of business they want.
