How to actually offer your items for sale is the next step in reselling goods on Amazon. It is advised to know before about retail arbitrage for beginners. You won’t need to create a new listing since this is not a private label item. Finding the current listing you want to sell on and adding that ASIN to your catalogue in Seller Central are both simple processes. Let’s go over each of the options since there are a few different methods to accomplish this.
Option 1 is to list the item via the Amazon seller app.
You can choose to list a product as Fulfilled by Merchant (FBM) or Fulfilled by Amazon after scanning it in the seller app (FBA). You have the option to include your available inventory in the app when listing as FBM so that your offer is always for sale. Click “List” in the bottom right corner. Condition, price, SKU, and fulfillment channel will all be displayed. Select “New” as the condition. Please pay close attention to this section as the cost section can be confusing. “Match Low Price” will be an option on Amazon. This can sound like what you want to do, but before choosing it, compare the FBA pricing.
Option 2: List on your desktop or laptop in Seller Central
This is the simpler method for listing your products for retail arbitrage on Amazon. Go to Inventory > Add a Product in Seller Central and paste the ASIN. (You can look it up in this section as well.) Pick “Sell this product” and select “New” as the condition. Amazon will create a listing within your Manage Inventory once you click “Save and complete.” You can create a shipment once it has arrived, which should take around 15 minutes.
The best way to make an FBA shipment
It’s time to send in your merchandise once you bought it and added the listing in Seller Central. You have taken a step toward Amazon goods resale.
Step 1: Find your product in Manage Inventory
You may “Edit” and a drop-down menu on the far right. Pick “Send/Replenish Inventory” from the drop-down menu by clicking the arrow.
Step 2: Pick the goods you want to send
The packaging template, which includes the template name, the number of units per box, the box’s size, weight, and the amount of preparation required, can be easily edited. After that, decide how many boxes you’ll send to Amazon.
Third step: Verify shipping
You must enter your send date, shipping mode (you must select “small package” from “less than truckload”), and inbound shipping cost in this part. There isn’t much to do here as you already included the weight and dimensions in the previous section. You will pay incredibly low shipping costs when using UPS, an Amazon partner. My 15-pound shipment will only cost $8.69 to ship into FBA in this scenario.
Step 4: Print FBA labels
The only thing left to do is print your FBA label and attach it to your box now that your shipment has been verified. Two barcodes can be seen on the label. On the outside of your box, make sure both labels are visible. The first is the UPS label, and the second is the method used by Amazon to determine who sent the package and what was inside the box.
