How to Sell on Amazon FBA 2022
Hi, Jessica! We would love to hear about you and your journey with Amazon FBA.
Thank you for having me here today.
Since almost 10 years, I’ve been selling online.
It wasn’t always available on Amazon.
While I was still working full-time, I sold on eBay in 2008 to get my foot in the door. It was mostly for “play” money. In 2009, I was laid off from my full time job and decided to make eBay my full-time business.
This is an interview about Amazon. I will get there quickly.
eBay was making me a lot of money, but I had one problem. It took a lot of time. Every item I sold, I only had one. Each item would have a listing and I would package it up as it sold. I was able to make more money the more I worked in the business.
Fulfillment by Amazon was something I heard about at the end of 2010. I decided to give it another try. Fulfillment by Amazon was for me a game-changer. This allowed me to sell more products without spending a lot of time shipping and packing.
In 2012, my husband made more than I did at his full-time job. He quit his job and we started selling on Amazon as our full-time income.

Could you please explain in detail what Amazon FBA is?
FBA stands for Fulfillment by Amazon. This program allows individual sellers, like you and me, to use Amazon’s warehouses and shipping methods to sell their products to customers.
As an Amazon seller, I first find products to sell. We shop in local stores for products at a discount, and then we ship those products to Amazon fulfillment centers throughout the United States. Amazon will send the items to the customer once they have sold.
It stores all the products so that we don’t have an inordinate amount of stock. It handles customer support so that we don’t have to deal with shipping or returns issues.
It took all I disliked about my eBay business, and left me with the fun part…finding great products.
You can find a more detailed explanation of how it all works in my beginners guide to Amazon FBA.
What amount do you need to invest to sell on Amazon?
You can start small or large. To give yourself a good start, I recommend people save around $1,000.
This is an inventory-based business. People must purchase the inventory before it goes on sale and wait for Amazon to pay them before purchasing more. You may not see consistent income for a while. To start, I recommend that you have at least $500 in inventory.
To send your products to Amazon, you will also need basic tools and supplies (labels; boxes; weighing scales, etc). These items will cost you approximately $100.
The last thing I recommend is spending money, or the first I guess, on Amazon training courses like our Amazon Boot Camp.
Are there any skills required to start an Amazon Business?
You have to love shopping, or at least tolerate it! Retail arbitrage is all about finding products locally, or even online.
A smartphone is required, as well as basic computer skills, to list your products on Amazon.
How much can an Amazon FBA business earn for a beginner?
This question is closely related to the amount of capital a person must invest at the beginning. You can make more inventory the more you have.
A member recently posted that they had made $1,800 in their first 30 days.
Some sellers want to make a few extra dollars a month while others seek to replace their full-time earnings. It’s a big difference.
Many of our students went on to start six-figure businesses, just like us.
There is no limit to your potential as long as you’re willing to work hard!
