Trading with Amazon

The largest online retailer today, Amazon is hosted on the main site www.amazon.com in the United States, and has country specific domains at Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, and China. Founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos, the site went online as amazon.com in 1995.

Amazon buys from multiple sources. As one would expect, new releases are supplied directly by publishers, and due to massive quantities Amazon is able to negotiate knocking cheap deals with them. There is a good opportunity though for wholesalers to sell back catalog items. Especially if you have stock of titles that are not easily available in the market, Amazon may be willing to buy them for you. And in large quantities.

Another good option is to have your online shop listed on Amazon. You can create your online shop in the Amazon system, and have your products listed every time a buyer searches for a particular product on Amazon. If your price is competitive, your offer will be listed when customers click on Buy button. If they buy from you, you are expected to ship the goods directly to the customer. Or, you can choose the Fulfill by Amazon feature, and then Amazon will ship your goods to the customer for you. Of course you will have to ship your goods to Amazon warehouse before this may happen.

Amazon provides unlimited opportunities for business of various size to trade with them, and thousands of companies large and small make good profit by trading with or on Amazon. For more information visit Amazon’s Make Money with Us.
