Now before sourcing and sending your product to Amazon and B you need to calculate your exact profit margin and fees that you're going to pay to Amazon. Now like I said previously we have two groups of fees referral fee for selling the Amazon Marketplace and fulfillment fees for using Amazon's FBA service. Now both of these fees occur only when your product is sold. Now Amazon has created this free calculator that lets you calculate fees and margins for any product I have included the link in the research step. So first you need to select a product that is already sold on Amazon so Amazon can obtain details about product sizing and category in order to calculate the exact fees. So let's say we want to sell jump rope. We need to go to Amazon Dot Com and then simply find a product that we want to sell. Or if you're going to be selling your own private label brand then pick a product that is very similar to your future product. Once you've found a product simply click on it and open the product listing page and then copy the s.a.m number. So as our number can be found in the link up here just after the DP slash part then simply copy DSN number then head back to the calculator and simply paste the Aisleyne code here. Then Amazon will find a product that is associated with a specific esign number. So as you can see Amazon already has product dimensions and unit weighting formation. Now next you only need to enter the selling price down here and then hit calculate bottom. Now as you can see total fulfillment costs are displayed here and total referral fees for selling an Amazon Marketplace are displayed here. Now this is the amount per unit that Amazon will send to us for each unit sold. So this amount is the difference between selling price and FBA and marketplace fees. Also Amazon has long term storage fees which means that heavy storage fees per unit will increase if your inventory is in their fulfillment centers for longer than six months. Please see the link in the resource tab for more information. Now you can also add inbound shipping and preparation service cost per unit. In these two fields so let's say it cost us $200 to send 200 units to Amazon. We then the inbound shipping per unit is $1 and also lets say the labeling materials and the whole preparation service cost us point five dollars per unit than simply we need to recalculate the fees again. Now from this amount we need to deduct and cover cost of goods and that is how you calculate profit amount per unit.
