I also sell on Amazon, I work for someone but am pretty high up in the company. Sourcing etc.. I don't think anyone will advise you on what product you can sell. Bec if they have agreat idea they will do it themselves.. we sell in a number of categories since when we have a great idea we go for it..
Good luck!! In my opinion its best to start your own amazon account as a side thing and slowly build yourself up that way you are not relying on it compltely. In general its not a good idea to rely only on an amazon business 100% since after all it is not your own platform and amazon is very powerful..


This is 100% true! You must diversify. We have our own website, as well as ebay, walmart and sell to Amazon as a vendor.

OP, thanks for doing this thread! That is, even if you're probably so busy.

How long have you been selling on Amazon successfully?

Were you able to make a profit on an item more than 2 years in a row? Or is it true that it's like bicycle riding, you need to ride on to a new item every Approximately 2 years.
Some items you can sell continuously and sometimes you need to move on.

Are your products made in the USA or China?
We sell branded items

Do you think anyone can be successful if can't travel to China?
Yes

Are you in any WhatsApp group for heimish Amazon sellers?
Yes

How do you find out about all "tricks" that successful sellers have, the kind that no Amazon training would give you but travels by word of mouth.
I like to figure things out on my own.

What is your biggest challenge in the business?


Is there any type of support group for heimish female Amazon sellers?
Not that I'm aware of.

How much would you pay for an employee that could bring you items to sell? Do you think it's possible at all to get such an employee?
Most definitely possible to hire a buyer. I do not have one at this time.

Do you do private label or brand name?
brand name

How would you go about kicking off a new private label item? Would you pay for fake feedbacks to get things rolling?
We try to do everything legit. Like I said I don't do private label, but we create many of our own listings on Amazon, Reviews are all real.

Do you reply to customer emails after business hours?
I have someone answering the questions so it's mostly during business hours. I do have an autoreply on weekends.

Do you have experience with Alibaba? How would you know if it's safe to work with the supplier? Do you pay in advance for your order or are you able to hold off payment until delivery?
No experience.

THANK YOU for willing to share!

Wow, love to hear all about this.
I love the freedom to ask anything!


Do you have a warehouse for your skus or you work with drop ship?

If you sell name brand, how do you get buyers to purchase from you as opposed to other sellers?

How do you get your company in the buybox?

How did you get hold of the WhatsApp group?

Do you sell items priced over $100? Or you keep to the lower priced bracket? Which do you think has more final profit potential?
