The Secret Keys to Ungating

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a lot of myths and tales surrounding ungating; it isn’t a surprise that things are this way, especially when you consider the fact that not many people get access to this legendary amazon’s program. There is a strict and meticulous process of screening you will go through before you get approved.

However, you should count yourself among the lucky elite merchants once you manage to get approved, because you will start enjoying a ton of benefits; namely getting access to start selling some of the bestselling and most popular products, including supplements, pills, food products, health and care, beauty.

All those products in the best-selling categories which regular Amazon sellers don’t have access to, will become available to you. This is the reason why a lot of sellers are hoping to pass the ungating process and get approved.

As a result of the strict screening process and these amazing benefits, an air of mystery has surrounded the process of ungating and this has led to the birth of a couple of false myths. Today, however, we would not be dealing with ungating myths; instead, we would focus on what it takes to get ungated. It is good to note that different niches have different requirement, but we’ll be looking at what it takes to get ungated in the niches of – Beauty, Heath & Personal Grocery. The reason for this is that these are very popular mainstream niches. So, what are some of the keys to ungating?

  • Ensure you’ve got good or non-existent metrics
  • Get hooked up with professional seller plan
  • Order defect rate <1%
  • Your account should been in good standing
  • 3-4 months+ of selling history
  • Make sure you submit 3 images containing receipts or POs from purchases that has occurred within the last 3 months
  • Efficiently itemize your receipts
  • Ensure your receipts contain your store’s information including address, name, phone number and any other important detail.
  • Each receipt should have one item in the category where you’re trying to get approved.
  • Ensure your ASIN number is written on your items, so that they can easily be verified
  • Avoid using email receipts; use the actual ones to avoid problems
  • Although not necessary, it won’t hurt to include your information on the purchase order; name, address and phone number should suffice.

As you must’ve observed, these aren’t easy things to get done, ungating is not for the faint of heart, but if you have gotten to a certain level in the selling game, you may want to consider doing it. There are still other steps required and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

As a result of the complexities of this program, I don’t advice newbies and beginners to try this out. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could end up wasting time, resources and money all for nothing, and don’t forget the scams out there! So if you’re just starting out, it is best you focus on getting settled in whatever niche you’re based in, then when you have enough momentum you can decide to branch out and try ungating.

As usual, we’ve got sweet courses that spell out the secrets of ungating and what you can do to position yourself for approval. Take a look at them here.

Hope you’ve learned something new today.

See you next time!

It's Importer Security Filing.. As the importer, you are required to file some basic information before the cargo departs overseas and arrives in the US. Your freight forwarder will always taken care of this but double check always!

i'm new to FBA, whats ungating thing??

Claudia says at 17:08 et
Daniel, there are actually quite a lot of them including watches, jewelry, health and personal care, grocery, collectibles, beauty, automotive, clothes and accessories, and also luggage and travel accessories. So all these categories are selling really well. That’s why, guys, a lot of people are trying to get ungated and approved in these categories. And, obviously, the best of the best are those three: grocery, health and personal care, and beauty categories.

In the past, it was actually very easy to get ungated. The requirements are different in each category, but in general, what you need is to provide commercial invoices, and I really mean commercial invoices and not receipts or so-called pro forma invoices

Those invoices must be dated within the last 90 days and they must have your name or business name on them, they must have contact information of your business address, phone number, email, and website, and must have names of the products that you purchased, and of course, they must have documents issuer name, address, phone number, and email, and website. And you can obscure pricing information if you want.

I am preparing a new video about UNGATING!

Claudia says at 17:10 et
but I need to be honest with you, guys, as of time of the recording of this video, it’s no longer easy anymore and your real chances of ungating are around 15-20% only.

There are a lot of so-called ungating scams on Amazon. Those services are offering you guaranteed ungating for like $400 or $300 payment, but you need to understand that there are no guarantees and nobody can influence Amazon’s decisions

if you are just starting out, I would highly recommend that you first avoid categories that require ungating, all of these categories. So there are thousands of thousands other categories that you can start selling in so there is no shortage of categories and most of them don’t require any approval or ungating. And then, if you really want to scale up your business and you want to really grow, then you can start ungating process if you already have success of other products in other categories.

I agree Claudia, i would stay away from ungating if you are new to this and go whitelabelling and don't have your own brick and mortar

Check the videos called "
TEELAUNCH App: How To Start your own Shopify Store WITHOUT DROPSHI
PPING AT ALL!
And "Amazon FBA without big investments"

Bottom line you dont need 5k to get started with ecommerce. Start your Shopify store or simply do teelaunch business or even Amazon FBA WITHOUT whitelabelling ! Tons of oppotunities!
