    I assume you mean retailing your products on Amazon?

    They typically take 15% of the gross sale amount (but that includes CC processing). So as long as there's enough margin left for you after 15% is taken, it's totally worth it!

    Keep in mind also that having your store's brand name on Amazon.com helps a lot with brand exposure for your website. That's why we always start off with a standalone ecommerce website and then expand by launching an Amazon store using the same name/logo.

    Short answer - Yes. Amazon can be a great opportunity, but you must recognize that their cost structure is very different, and your pricing formula needs to take that into account.
    A lot depends on the niche you pick to sell too (Total sales per day) and total price.

    For E.g If you get 20 sales a day, customer pays 5 dollar total, and you make 75 cents (15%), you better change product.

    But, if you get 3 sales a day, customer pays 500 dollars total, and you make 75 dollars (15%), it seems worthwhile.
