Love your info on Amazon. I just don’t see how a product with a low price can really make any money to survive. I sell a product for $7.99 (bigboysgolftees.com) and after all the fees you are talking about I’d be lucky to come away with anything. Plus wondering what I will need to pay to get on first page of searches. My product are unique Golf Tees which I donate $1.00 from every sale to Breast Cancer Research. To be honest with you frustrated with the Amazon process from Day One. And forget about getting help from Seller Support.. it’s like a secret to talk to a real Human.. Any suggestions are welcomed.
Amazon definitely is not the right fit for every product. If you want to tap the vast Amazon audience and ensure a profit, bundling can be a better option than selling a single-pack low-price good. If you bundle three items in a set, you’re not selling a $7.99 item — it’s a $24.99 item. That gets your item and name on Amazon, in front of millions of buyers, and each sale has a higher margin — shipping is really where you’ll see these savings.
Amazon buyers are savvy and if they’re interested in your brand, they’ll often search for your site to look for other purchasing options. Think of it a marketing channel as much as another sales arm. Does that help? Good luck.
