Did you know that around 50 percent of sales on Amazon Marketplace come from third-party sellers? If you're an Amazon seller you need a reliable wholesale supplier.
The right wholesale distributor can help your Amazon shop rake in major profits. Read on to learn how to choose the best wholesale supplier!
1. Understand What a Wholesale Distributor is and Why You Need One
What is a wholesale distributor? A wholesaler carries a large product inventory for wholesale purchase by third-party sellers.
A wholesaler will help you streamline your Amazon FBA Business. The right wholesaler will allow you to purchase, pack, and ship all from their warehouse. All you'll have to do it review and pay for the products.
2. Select Your Product to Buy Wholesale and Sell Online
Do you know what product, or products, you are going to sell on Amazon? It's important to pick a product and find a wholesaler that works for you. In order to decide on a product you should ask yourself a few questions:
What do you want to sell?
What do consumers want?
What price point are you looking to sell at?
How much variety in color or style do you want to provide?
Once you've determined your ideal product, find a wholesaler that will carry it. For example, at FBA Fox we have over 500,000 products available.
3. Determine the Shipping Process and Reliability
When selecting your ideal wholesaler it is crucial to your business that they are reliable when it comes to shipping. With between 244 million and 304 millionactive accounts on Amazon, people have high expectations. Your shipments need to arrive on time and in one piece.
Before you begin a relationship with a wholesaler understand what processes and commitments they have in place to ensure a safe and timely shipment.
4. Understand the Pricepoint
