    I have been selling on Amazon for 2 years. I am making about $100.00-200.00 a month. This is pretty much on auto pilot. I have software program that creates the sites in about 5 minutes. People find my sites through the search engines when they are searching for a particular item.
    Hope this helped.

    Don't jump on the conclusion that a single store will give you £100 - building an amazon store is like any other website.

    It requires marketing, traffic and a thorough strategy put in place.

    If you've already sorted those, you can practically run any website.

    The reason i want to build it is because i can use all the items and products from there.I havent found yet so many products to open my own e shop.I would like just to see how it works.I havent had any website so far,only selling on the big boys.

      Can you explain how you are "selling on Amazon"? If I am reading the thread correctly you are actually just making affiliate shops, or are you sourcing products and listing them on Amazon? There is a big difference.

      The one thing I tell anyone starting on Amazon, if it is not already sold on Amazon, be very careful about placing it on there (Stick to Private Label you can brand). It is not uncommon for Amazon to mine your sales data and if it does really well, they will go direct to the manufacturer, source it and undercut you.

      I have a one big client that this has happened to, his large ticket items got placed by a drop shipper on Amazon and 6 months later, Amazon negotiated a deal with the manufacturer and cut everyone out.

      I like Amazon but this is one of their more shady things they do.

      Well an affiliate store on or for Amazon won't teach you what you need to know about opening your own ecommerce store--they are two different types of businesses.
      Backtrack and go to the top of the list--find what sells well that you have access to purchase as a dropshipper or light bulk wholesale. Choose a product, learn how to market it, THEN create a starter site such as in WordPress and add the products.
      One hell of a lot of the iceburg is beneath the actual sales! You have a lot to do before creating your own store. Learn how to build a simple wordpress site. Since you are already selling (hope that means you are "selling", not just "listing"), you have a start on what product to choose, what supplier to contact and investigate costs so you price it right.
      If this is what you want to do, get the education to do it. Do the research, do the testing. Those things will get your foot in the door, ecommerce-wise.
