How to Sell on Amazon for Beginners in 2022 (Ultimate Guide)

4. Identify Product Suppliers

Once you determine your niche, you have to find your product supplier. There are several ways to find supplier info. You can find suppliers on Alibaba and other B2B platforms such as AliExpress. You’ll probably find a few potential suppliers. Get their contact info and other background info if possible.

You could also search on Google or get contacts with suppliers at trade shows. Trade shows are a great way for you to have a brief communication with the supplier and get to know their products. You can also visit suppliers to find the supplier based on the industry distribution.

You have to contact these suppliers to find the best one for you. Send emails, make phone calls, and visit the suppliers. Try to avoid scammers and identify the best one.

Get to know the sample products, the price, and the minimum order quantity (MOQ), the order limit, product quality, shipping charges, and their capacity, etc.

Try to figure out the payment options and the payment terms for your quote. Find the best one for you; narrow down your options based on your requirements.

Remember to order samples so you can see the product quality. Check the product by yourself or use professional quality inspectors before you choose your supplier.

5. Place Orders

Once you have chosen your supplier, you need to place an order.

Normally, the first order should not be large. You can place a small order and use it to test the market and get relevant feedback from customers. Testing like this is a great way to know the market with your products.

Remember to stay in regular contact with your supplier to avoid misunderstandings and get product manufacturing updates. Try to keep the key specifications in black and white and be timely with any revisions.

Product quality inspection should be in place when you place an order. Try to inspect the raw material, processes in the production line, and the finished products before shipping.

7. Create Product Listing

You have to create product listings to add your items on to the platform. There are many parts to creating your listing. You have to include clear and high-resolution images. Make sure your products are “Prime eligible” and enjoy the free shipping options for prime members. If you do not have many items, you can list them manually. If you have many items, you can upload a spreadsheet that contains each of your items. Try to provide enough info about your products and make your product listing appealing.
