With eBay undergoing its most dramatic transformation from the beginning, many sellers are looking at Amazon as a potential market for their goods. Its clients are less bargain very sensitive than eBay customers. Amazon manages all the payment processing so there are never any issues about a winner making a payment. Just as there are specific steps to take to become a success on eBay, there are specific steps that need to be taken on Amazon. Amazon offers a few different account levels for merchants. The first tip is deciding which account level is right for you. The regular account level – the market seller – is an account that lets you list product that’s currently represented in Amazon’s catalog for free.The 2nd account level – the pro merchant account – is a lot more flexible. It enables you to list items which aren’t currently in Amazon’s catalog. It provides you a discount of $0.99 per sold item off the fees charged to a regular market seller. So if you do more than 40 sales a month and\/or find yourself needing to make new Amazon catalog entries, the pro merchant account is the way you want to go. The 2nd tip is to realize that creating a listing on Amazon is extremely different than on eBay. You need to find the exact product in Amazon’s catalog to match the item you’ve for sale and after that you tell Amazon that you’ve more than one of those particular items.
In case your item isn’t in the catalog, you can’t sell it on Amazon. The 3rd tip is to be sure to accurately classify the condition of your product accurately. They enable you to describe the condition of the product to send further details to your customer. Unlike eBay, this descriptive text that you may add must be focused on the condition of the product. You need to price your product to be competitive for that specific item. This is going to be determined both by the sales rank of the product and the number of competitors. If a product has an extremely low sales rank number, it sells on Amazon very well and that implies that 3rd party sellers do not need to worry too much about being the least expensive offering. Anything in the lower to mid price ranges will usually sell pretty quickly. On the other hand if the sales rank number is very high, that implies that the item sells only occasionally on Amazon.
