Amazon FBA: Communicating With Suppliers

Maybe you found the perfect niche product to sell – but how can you be sure you can actually get it into Amazon successfully?

How do you know you have the right supplier for your new product?

In this article we are going to cover the top questions you need to ask new suppliers when selling on Amazon.

Question 1 Price

First of all, ask them the price for different quantities of the product you are considering.

You need to know the price for the MOQ, which is the minimum order quantity a factory would accept. Some factories expect you to order 3000 units first time, while others may request that you spend $2000 on your first order.

It varies from factory to factory so you need to check the minimum order requirements. At the same time, ask the price for 5000+ units, so you can see what savings you can make by ordering larger volumes.

By knowing the prices for small and large orders upfront you can more accurately estimate your profit margin as your business scales.

Question 2 Lead Time

Both for the minimum order quantity and 5000 pieces, ask the factory for the normal production lead time.

Usually this is between 2 to 6 weeks for most products. During busy times of the year the production lead time may double, so always check with the factory before you place an order.

When planning your launch, always allow some extra time for manufacturing. The best is to have at least 30 days buffer built in because sometimes things go wrong – like the recent blockage of the Suez Canal!

Question 3 Background

Ask all suppliers to send you their profile, including the size of the factory, how many workers they have, the machinery they have, their main products, markets and customers they sell to.

Most factories will willingly give you this information. You need this to evaluate if they are a reputable supplier.

Go through their sales brochure, website, product catalogue and get an understanding of what other products they could potentially produce for you. If all their products are very different – e.g. wood products and plastic products – they might be a trading company and not a factory.

Question 4 Location

Ask for the detailed factory address in English and Chinese and Google this. Also ask for their showroom address.

If the showroom address is different from the factory address you could be dealing with an agent and not the factory direct. Ask for photos of both the factory and the showroom to see their production lines and products.

Check the location yourself and try to find links or references about the factory online. Maybe another seller has used them before and had issues and posted about it online. It takes 5 mins to check but could save you thousands by avoiding the wrong suppliers.

Question 5 Other Similar Products

When you contact suppliers, ask them to send you their catalog.

Ask about similar products to the one you are looking for and check which materials they can make it in. You might get some new ideas for products no-one else is selling on Amazon.

Question 6 Branding and Packaging

A factory may have made the same product for 100 customers around the world.

Each one has their own unique way to brand the product and package it. So ask the factory for pictures to show how you can add the logo and to discover the standard packaging they use for it.

This will save you a lot of work. You can also ask to see other customers packaging, although some factories may refuse this.

Question 7 Sample Arrangement

In your initial email to suppliers, find out the cost of a sample and how long it will take to arrange the sample.

I usually request for the sample cost to be refunded against the main order. This way you get that money and cost back. Most factories are willing to do this.

These top 7 points cover most of the questions you need to ask when reaching out to new suppliers.



Amazon FBA: Paying Suppliers

One of the riskiest steps in launching a product business is paying suppliers. What if they make a mistake with the order? What if they are not a real factory?

Follow our top tips to reduce your risk!

Tip 1 Start Small

When you’re first starting out dealing with overseas suppliers, it may be difficult to spot which ones are great and which ones are unreliable.

Over time you’ll know almost instantly if a factory is worth dealing with. When it comes to payments, especially to international suppliers, there are many scam artists because there’s so much money involved.

If they persuade you to send them a deposit and they disappear with the money, just by posting a few listings and a few emails they could make tens of thousands of dollars. That’s why it’s essential you verify the background of whoever you’re making payments to.

Try to start with a small order to test their reliability and quality.

Tips 2 and 3 Background Check

The quickest and fastest way to do a rough background check is using the following 3 tactics of the ABC method.

Step A: Ask for their full address in English and Local Language as well as their company name and incorporation certificate.

Search their company name and later their address on Google and skim through the results. If the factory claims to be a silicon specialist but their website has many different kinds of products from toys to wooden goods, they are probably a trader or someone who has put up a fake website to try to get business, or even a scammer.

Buy from the experts. If you’re buying a wooden item only buy from someone who is a specialist in this area. You’ll know that from their website, their product range and their knowledge when communicating with you via email.

Avoiding traders and doing a quick check of the website on Google is a great way to filter out bad suppliers and potential scammers.

Step B: Ask for references from 3 to 5 customers.

These can be in our countries, such as the UK, Germany or France. Any serious supplier will have customers across the globe and should be able to provide you with 3 references. Call or email them and ask them about their experience with that factory.

Also Google search the brands they give you as references. If they are mid-market to high-end brands the factory should be able to produce products to a good standard.

Step C: Visit the factory address or ask your agent to conduct a surprise visit.

I’ve been given factory addresses and when I showed up it turned out that it was just two guys in an apartment pretending to be a factory. Before you place any purchase order, you or your representative should always visit the factory.

Tip 4 Deposit

Normally factories ask for a 30% deposit when the order is placed and 70% balance payment before shipment.

This is standard across Asia, especially China and Hong Kong. If the supplier asks for more deposit, be very wary. It’s hard to get that deposit back if you later cancel the order or if the factory cannot make the goods to your standard.

They will claim they spent on materials already, so you’ll never see it again. That’s why you have to do as much due diligence before placing any orders as possible.

Tip 5 Escrow

One way to minimize payment risk is to use an escrow service.

The payment from escrow is only released when the quality of goods has been checked and verified. If possible add to your contract that a third party inspection done by SGS or Intertek has to be conducted and passed before the payment is released.

This goes some way to protecting you and ensuring that your product is in good condition before leaving the factory.

Tip 6 Other Payment Types

Larger businesses use letters of credit or TT payments for their orders.

A letter of credit is issued by your bank and tells the supplier’s bank that you have the cash to pay for the order and that your bank has set it aside, much like a certificate of deposit. The funds are released to the supplier only when they meet the conditions of the letter of credit.

Usually this includes passing inspection and presenting your bank with the shipping documents. This service is very expensive and your order needs to be $10,000 or more before it make senses to use this kind of payment.

Most suppliers will refuse a letter of credit for the first couple of orders because they want to use the cash to buy the materials. The alternative payment method is to send the deposit by telegraphic transfer directly to the factory’s bank.

This is the riskiest payment form because you are transferring the cash directly without any terms attached.

Tip 7 Credit

As you build your relationship with suppliers, ask for extended payment terms.

Since manufacturing is so capital intensive, it’s rare for factories to extend lengthy time frames for you to pay. You might be able to push for payment on delivery into your Amazon warehouse.

After two or three orders, ask the factory if you can pay 30 days after delivery. Ask for more than you expect them to agree to,  because if you settle somewhere in the middle the terms will still be in your favor.



Boost Sales With Influencers

Getting to the top of Amazon is hard if you are competing for the search traffic on Amazon. But what if you were getting thousands of visitors a month to your product from outside Amazon?

Sending Influencer Traffic to your listing can boost sales, profits & conversions. Here is our step by step process for finding and working with influencers.

Step 1: Who?

Make a list of potential partners on your chosen platform. For example, if you were going to partner with influencers on Instagram, you would search for people with profiles & accounts that match your niche.

Start by looking for small to medium influencers with around 10,000 to 50,000 followers. These are most likely to work with you and also they might not ask for much in return for promoting your product.

Product Samples For Amazon FBA

The only way to know for sure if a supplier is good or not is to check samples of the product you plan to order.

Sometimes a supplier can look great and have awesome product photos but the same itself is low quality.

In this article we cover the top tips for choosing a product supplier using samples.

Tip 1 Why Do I Need Them

You absolutely must get samples of any products you plan to order and sell on Amazon.

Products can look very different in real life than they do in a photo. Also the photo may hide quality flaws in the product.

Some markets are super competitive for Amazon ads. But if you are creative, there are ways to bring down your ad costs and boost your sales!

In this article we are going to cover the top tips for setting up your Amazon pay per click campaign.

For example, if you use the keyword men’s gift in your pay per click campaign, unless it’s included on your listing you will get very few impressions.

How Much Investment Required for Amazon FBA?

How Much Investment Required for Amazon FBA?

As your business grows it will need more capital. You can start small but if your product sells well you might need to put in more cash too.

In this article we cover the different stages of your Amazon business lifecycle and the investment required.

Stage 1 Test Order

For your very first product, even if you think it’s gonna be a massive hit you should order the minimum amount possible and ship it to Amazon as quickly as possible, just so you can learn the process of listing and selling an item.

Doing a course is one thing, but actually getting one product into Amazon will teach you the process much faster. I would say, buy $100 worth of any product that costs you less than one dollar per unit, ship it to Amazon and start trying to sell it.

This will teach you what makes a good item. You’ll also learn how to use Amazon’s system and get the basics of things like freight.

You can do this easily for under $500.

Stage 2 First Product

After you’ve done your test, you want to research in detail what will be your first serious item.

The test was to learn, and this first product will make your first profits. Depending on the factory minimum order, you will probably need $3000 to $5000 at this stage.

Check the freight costs before placing your order so you can calculate the total budget and aren’t hit with any surprises. Aim to order around 1000 pieces of your first item.

This will give you enough to cover a promotion of 50 to 100 units and enough stock for 1 to 3 months, depending on how well you sell.

Stage 3 Scaling the Business

Even if you sell 1000 units of your first product and make 100% profit, you’ll have to reinvest nearly all your profit into reorders.

If you spend $5000 and now have $10,000 after three months, you will probably need to buy 2000 to 3000 units of your product to cover the next 2 to 4 months of stock. If all your money is being reinvested you can’t scale the business.

You have to wait 6 months before some of the profits can be used for new items, or find additional capital for new products. Also you are assuming that you will sell all of your first product quickly.

The reality is a few sellers do this, but usually only 20% of products do very well, 30% percent of products do okay and around 50% or more underperform. For each new item, you need $5000-$10,000 of capital, and the more you can commit, the more profit you will make 6 to 12 months later.

Don’t commit more than $5000 for your first item, and gradually use the balance capital you have once the first item is selling well.

If you shoot all your bullets at the same time, you might choose bad products because you haven’t taken the time to learn by optimizing your first product.

Stage 4 Realistic Returns

Doubling your money every 3 to 6 months is realistic.

If you buy $10,000 worth of a product at $5 a unit, and sell it for $15 a unit, after Amazon fees you should be left with around $20,000. If you reinvest the $20,000, after a further 3 to 6 months you should have $20-$40,000.

If you start with a smaller number it will take you longer before your business makes good returns. You’ll hear a lot of success stories about people starting with much less and making much more. But for every one person who brags on Facebook, there are 99 who didn’t do so well.

Amazon is a numbers game, so the more time, effort and money you put in the more profits you get out in the long run. There are no shortcuts.

The best you can do is to minimize big mistakes and to try to optimize every area of the business.

Stage 5 Breakeven

You can expect your products to breakeven in around 3 to 6 months and after that they should start to spit off profits.

If you started with $50,000 you can expect to earn around $15,000-$30,000 a month six months out. If you start with only $5,000 and sell your product for double what you paid, it’s mathematically impossible for you to make $50,000 a month in six months time.

Realistically you’ll make about $2000 to $3000 a month, maybe more if you’re lucky and if your product is extremely successful. I say lucky because nobody except Amazon knows exactly how to rank their system.

There is an element of luck when you are choosing your niche, but the more work you do the luckier you get.

Stage 6 Covering Your Costs

It’s only when you start to sell about $30,000 worth of product a month that your business can cover your living expenses and leave enough profit to reinvest for growth.

This should take you around 9 to 12 months depending on how much capital you start with.

Stage 7 $100K Month

Your business really starts to take off when you hit six figures of sales a month.

You can afford to take a decent distribution, and have a lot of profit left over for expanding your business. Less than 2% of sellers make it here, but you can do it if you consistently work towards optimizing your Amazon business.

If you have 10 products selling $10,000 a month each, you will hit this target. All you need to do is take one step at a time and keep adding on additional products.

Amazon Product Selection for 2021

Finding a great product can make or break your business. A lot changed in 2020 but the main strategies for finding a good product still work.

In this article we are going to cover our top tips for choosing a good product to sell on Amazon.

Sells for Between $20 and $100

If the price is below $20 Amazon’s fees eat up too much of the margin to make it worthwhile.

If the price is over $100 it’s less of an impulse buy for people and more likely they will want a brand they know, so it’s harder to sell. So aim products in the $20 to 100  range.

Amazon Ads & PPC: Pay Per Click Pro Guide

The best place to advertise your product is on Amazon itself. The ads can be profitable, reach tens of thousands of customers and even boost your rankings.

Every ad sale also boosts your organic ranking too. Optimizing ads is one of the best ways to rapidly grow your Amazon business.

Tip 1 Broad Phrase Exact
“Exact” keywords only show when the user searches the exact words you selected. For example, if your exact phrase is steel garlic press and they search garlic press or steel press, your result will not show.

“Phrase” will show whenever the words you’ve used are searched for even if the user adds other words to the front and backend of what they’re looking for. If your keyword is garlic press but they search blue garlic press, it will still show up in the results.

“Broad” is usually the best option because your ad will show for similar and related searches. For example, if your keyword is women’s socks and the user searches buy ladies socks, your ad will still get shown.

The best is to choose your top 10 keywords then advertise for them in exact, broad and phrases all in the same campaign. Let the ads run for 2 weeks then analyze the data. That should give you more of an idea of what works in your niche.

Tip 2 Impressions
There are several ways to increase the number of impressions you get.

Amazon works differently to Google pay per click. You need to include a wide range of keywords in your product listing for it to show in the ads.

Amazon searches your product listing and uses the words it finds for both automatic campaigns and manual campaigns.If you try to advertise for garlic press but you have not included it anywhere in your listing, then your ad will not show up.

So be sure to add as many relevant keywords into your listing and back end search terms as possible. This will help your organic rank but also make your ads more relevant too!

Tip 3 Bid
Another way to boost impressions is to increase your bid.

Start with a low bid of around $.50 and increase it by $.10 at a time if you feel you need to increase your sales through advertising and impressions.

If you start high, you won’t know what works the best or you may end up overspending. By starting low and scaling up over time – you can slowly increase the bid whilst controlling your costs.

Using this strategy I got very high returns on investment from ad spending. For the ads that are performing well – just leave them running then adjust the keywords and ads not doing as well.

Tip 4 Budget
If your campaign is profitable then increase the budget.

Keep the budget low, around $10 a day, until you optimize listing impressions and returns.

You need about 2 weeks of data to see what is going on. So let your ads run for a while before making changes. Increasing the bids and budget for a profitable campaign can also destroy it – so be careful to track any changes you make so you can revert back to campaigns with good ACOS and returns.

Tip 5 ACOS
ACOS is a measure of how successful your ad campaigns are.

It shows how much you have to spend for every dollar of sales. For example, a score of 50% means you’re using $.50 of clicks for every one $1 dollar in revenue.

The lower your ACOS the less each sale is costing you. There are many ways to reduce this over time – one of the best is simply optimizing your listing so you sell more products for the same ad spend.

Tip 6 Keywords
The most important part about optimizing your pay per click is your keywords.

Make sure your keywords are included in the title, features, description and search terms of your listing. If they are not there, Amazon will not display your product for ads with those keywords

Tip 7 Page 1 Bid
On Amazon seller central you can check the estimate bid for page 1 in the advertising section.

You can use this to estimate how much you should be bidding if you are not getting enough impressions.



Amazon Products to Avoid in 2021

The days of just copying are over…you have to make your item the best in the niche. But before you launch…in this article we are going to cover the top types of product you should avoid selling on Amazon.

Tip 1 Electronics

Secrets for Amazon FBA Product Descriptions

Optimizing your listing can lead to a boost in conversion rate. If you can double conversions you make double the profits, all with the same traffic. In this article we cover the top secrets to creating great product descriptions for items you sell on Amazon.

Secret 1 Call to Action
Always end the product description with a call to action for customers to buy your product.

You can suggest that they get one for themselves and one for a friend and add it to their cart today and buy now. Numerous studies have shown salespeople who ask for the order at the end of the presentation boost sales by hundreds of percent.

So it’s reasonable to assume that asking customers to buy will also result in more sales, and most sellers using these tactics have found that it does.

Secret 2 HTML
You can use HTML to bold key text, space out paragraphs and bullet points, and improve the overall readability and format of your description.

There is still some debate about whether or not it’s allowed, but if you only use it for these simple tasks there will be no issue with Amazon.

By making key benefits bold with HTML you make it easier for readers to skim through your listing and catch all the key points. But don’t bold everything.

Focus instead on the 4 or 5 key points that will convert potential customers to buyers.

Secret 3 Keywords
The description is a great place to add in more relevant keywords for your listing.

You have more than 1000 characters to write about your product so you can sprinkle an additional 5 to 10 major keywords throughout the description without affecting the natural flow of the sales copy.

Secret 4 Copywriter
As with your features and title, use a professional copywriter to complete your description.

They can turn ordinary text and keywords into a compelling description of the benefits of your product for the customer.

Secret 5 Extended Benefits
The five bullet points for features are quite limited in terms of what you can say.

Use the description area to go into more detail on the extended benefits of the product. You can also include additional features and benefits with a more detailed overall specification for the product so the customer has everything they need to know in one easy-to-read place.

Secret 6 Highlight the Discount


Use an inflated manufacturer’s suggested retail price in the backend of your listing.

So if your product is selling for $30, but the recommended retail price is $40, users will see a 25% discount highlighted by Amazon. Mention that the product was originally $40 and is now $30 for a limited time only in your description.

Also state that once this item goes out of stock, the price may be increased. What you are doing is creating scarcity, a time limit and a perceived higher price in the mind of the consumer.

This may well be the case because if your item starts selling well you might increase the price later.

Secret 7 Specifications
Itemize exactly what is included in the package that the user will receive.

For example, state that there is a garlic press, instructions and a free spatula included in every box. Give them the exact size and weight of the product here too, since they may be looking at your description to find out these details.

It doesn’t hurt to let them know exactly what they’ll be getting in this section.



Products for 2021 & Products to Avoid…

Woohoo! It is a New Year and a fresh chance to launch new products on Amazon. Before you commit to a new product – make sure to avoid problem products!

In this article we are going to cover the top seven types of product you should avoid selling on Amazon.

Tip 1 Electronics

There’s a lot that can go wrong with any electronic product.

They also need special certificates for customs. Avoid any product with a battery or a circuit when first starting your Amazon business.

Only if you are an electrical engineer and have a lot of experience in this sector – then maybe you can consider it. But for new sellers or new products – electronics is a super hard and competitive niche.

How to Write the Best Features For Your Amazon Listing

Amazon’s search algorithm uses your main title, features, back end search terms & description to understand your product and index you for keywords.

The title is the most important but the features on your listing also play a huge part in the search algorithm!

In this article we cover the top 7 tips for writing great features for your Amazon product listing.

Tip 1 Keyword Research

The most important part of your listing is the keywords you use.

If you miss out the main keywords, customers won’t be able to find your product. Include 5 to 10 of your main keywords spread throughout your five features. Make sure the language sounds natural so it doesn’t feel like it’s stuffed with keywords.

How To SUPER Optimize Your Amazon Listing

Imagine 1000 people visit your product.

If 10% buy, you sell 100 units.
But if 20% buy you sell 200 units.

A simple change to your listing can result in DOUBLE PROFITS and DOUBLE sales.

In this article we will cover the Top Tips on the most important ways you can optimize your Amazon listing.

Tip 1 Keywords
The most important part of your listing is the keywords you use in the title, features, description and backend.

Spend a few hours on each listing to develop a list of the highest volume relevant keywords. Check your competitors listings, use Google keyword tool, and use the keyword suggestion in cash cow pro to build a list of potential keywords.

Make sure to filter only relevant keywords that match the product you are selling.

Keywords are the most important tool to optimize your listing because users find your product by searching the Amazon website or Google.

Tip 2 Title
Now that you have the top keywords for your product, try and include 3 or 4 of them in your title, while still keeping it easy to read.

You also want to highlight the most important benefit for your user in the title. For example, a normal title might be: iPhone 6 protective case Made of PC. Whereas an optimized title might be: iPhone 6 Case Designed with anti-scratch material and anti-drop protection.

I recommend you create four different titles and test each one to see which one generates more profit. You can do this test automatically using cash cow pro.

Tip 3 Photos
I recommend sending your product to a professional photographer who can create high quality, high resolution images for you.

After a user searches for a product, the first thing they see is the product image and title. That’s what they use to decide which items they will investigate further.

You want your image to be as professional, clear, and high quality as possible. Minimize the white space around the image, show the product in action and have 10+ different high-resolution images showing all the benefits.

Tip 4 Features
Read the reviews of your top five competitors and check out the 1-star, 2-star and 3-star reviews about the product.

You want to make sure you cover any of the potential issues raised in your features and description. Also review their benefits listed in their features and description.

By consolidating all the benefits from several competitors, your listing will be the most appealing of all the similar products being sold on Amazon.

Tip 5 Description
In your description, make sure to go into detail about the benefits of the product for the user, and end it with a call to action such as add to cart and buy now.

Descriptions can be 1000 or more characters giving you the space to cover any additional features and benefits you didn’t mention in the five-feature bullets. You should also use any additional keywords you haven’t used previously here.

Tip 6 Backend Search Terms
This is your chance to use all the different keywords you found during your research and insert them into your listing.

In this section Amazon is asking you to tell it what uses this product relates to and which terms people might use to find it. Starting with the highest volume keyword, add as many keywords as you can into the space provided by Amazon.

Tip 7 Price
You need to test your price to see which is the most profitable.
You can do this automatically with cash cow pro.

Selling 1000 units at $15 might be more profitable than selling 1200 at $12.50. It depends on your Amazon FBA fees and landed costs.

Make sure you optimize these seven key factors for everything you sell on Amazon. They will have the most impact on your sales in the fastest time possible.
