pet rock.. hm.. Not really.. run the numbers on the Best Seller finder.. u see most sales are made by 2-3 sellers, others are struggling. It's also too cheap of a product, Average price of the product from top 10 sellers: $13.13 (Approximate FBA fees: $2.63)

Claudia says at 21:13 et
On February 15 and August 15 of every year, FBA conducts an inventory cleanup. On these dates, inventory that has been in Amazon fulfillment centers between six and 12 months are assessed a long-term storage fee of $11.25 per cubic foot. Items that have been in fulfillment centers for 12 months or more on the inventory cleanup date are assessed a long-term storage fee of $22.50 per cubic foot.

Friends... Love it here.. One question... How to calculate fees ??
 
Claudia says at 21:18 et
Check Amazon Marketplace Fee and Profit Calculator https://salecalc.com/amazon
Usually FBA fee is 15-30% depending on the price.. higher price less fee %

Try Shipwire to ship to US customers and across Canada, shipwizmo.com, maybe even Fulfilled by Amazon? Also ZhenHub they have fulfillment centers around the world - China, USA, UK, Germany, Australia.

Dont be discarded about drop shipping there are lots of people have succeeded in drop shipping, my advice drop ship is good when you do it internationally. I have no problems with international customers.

You can reduce the delivery time.. Try DHL, i pass the cost to the consumer, i find consumer will pay the xtra amount to get the instant gratification they seek in online shopping.. Or find domestic suppliers..
It is Ok to use AlieExpress - just make sure that your customers know about the delivery times and the reason is because all products are made to order and direct from the factory.
Then scale up and move slowly to FBA once you know what sells best for your store and fullfill via amazon prime!

 daniel says at 17:08 et
i'm new to FBA, whats ungating thing??
 
5
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.

 Tyro Meg says at 17:09 et
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

 Gab says at 17:09 et
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!
 
5
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.

 Tyro Meg says at 17:11 et
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

Just got ungated....only took two weeks....had to get an invoice from the manufacturer and a screenshot of the FDA registration from the manufacturers account...

Claudia says at 17:13 et
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

hi after taking the steps to show you my store I realised that i did it in hast and have closed it, by the way thanks for all the comments they were super useful!
I am going for my original niche and I have several ideas for others once im up and running. I am very impressed by the help you get here, from the keyword, title generator, the filler and bullet point generator and everything else, all great in helping newbies like myself.
i would like to ask that once i have my shop up and running and looking great would it be an option to do a full launch campaign with one of the email companies to send out emails to your target audience? I have seen ones advertised and I am realistic about the feedback and actual conversions but i don't have an email list yet and this seems to be a great option. let me know

thanks

Use the best selling products of your website of course. You can also do the seasonal offers there (like Halloween, Christmas etc)

Thank you Ted. I feel silly asking newbie questions, but it's the only way I'll get over the hump of launching my first store.
