Amazon FBA / FBM - Can you make a reasonably good income from it?

by Johnny1975 12 replies
Does anyone have any experience with Amazon FBA or FBM? Could you give me a rough idea of what kind of income you can make from it?

Obviously it varies and there are many factors to consider, but I'm just looking for rough figures. Anything that will give me some indication of what to expect. Thanks.

    You can make a lot of money, there is no limits to how much you can make.

    I prefer dopshipping because I can test a product for much cheaper, but Amazon fBA is good

    The amount you can make depends on how much you scale up your business and the inventory sourcing you are able to do it with.

    Amazon is the largest online retailer, They have huge buyer traffic as well as outstanding customer confidence and loyalty. IMO it is completely logical to have your inventory listed on Amazon. The majority of people looking to buy something online go directly to Amazon and make a purchase, never interacting with any site except Amazon.

    I've asked this same question on the amazon seller forum, and all I'm hearing is that unless you're a big player you're not going to make any money, or that you need to have a supplier who will only sell to you (unrealistic, unless you're a big player), or that your product has to be really unique. It all sounds very negative and it makes me wonder if it's worth it or if they're just giving advice for the sake of giving advice.

    Can anyone give me a realistic view of what to expect when you're new?

      In my opinion all of the negative things you mention above are incorrect.


      My first suggestion is simply to set up your account and to start small, learn the process of operating the FBA business, get familiar with your seller central account and begin to scale up from there. Do no worry about having a unique private label item as that can come later.

      My specialty is safe and profitable product sourcing. I know that having a unique product can avoid competition for a while, sometimes for years, but I also know that having a private label product can have a similar effect.

      There are ways to find suppliers who will only sell to you, even relatively small quantities, and the process is very simple. There are also ways to locate unique products, sometimes ones that will be very difficult to copy.

      The most important thing for you at this stage is whichever direction you take, you must be sure that you are buying at the best possible price. That means for a start, that you only buy from genuine manufacturers, not from the many thousands of suppliers on B2B sites who falsely claim to be manufacturers, but are in reality opportunistic traders.

      You also need to learn how to get suppliers to accept your orders for much less than the MOQ's they quote.
