What I learned so far:
- You can use them if you're not from the US as long as you have a US address MyUS.com - #1 International Shipping, Mail and Package Forwarding Service - MyUS.com, a US phone number that Skype can provide, a US bank account that Payoneer can help you with.
- You can NOT ship products directly from the source for what I understood, please correct me if I'm wrong, but you can use a service like: http://www.myinventoryteam.com
(none of the links are affiliate ones, I got these from another site and stripped the affiliate tags of course)
So in short I can import a container from China, ship it to the guys from my inventory team, which in turn label it, ship it to Amazon's warehouse, list it on my seller account and job done.
Please enlight me about important things that I over see as I'm complete new to this and plan to visit one of the expo shows in Shanghai on a short notice to see if I can strike some deals.
I'm mainly interested in fitness equipment like crosstrainers and spinning bikes (which are obvious quite heavy and easily deal with $100+ shipping costs but I'm aware of that).
