|Sell Your Stuff on Amazon. No taking pictures or writing descriptions!|
When it comes to selling things online, selling on AmazonMarketplace is by far the easiest. This year I’ve made over $400 by selling stuff we had laying around our house on AmazonMarketplace. Here are some of the things that makes AmazonMarketplace selling wonderful:
1. You don’t have to take pictures. AmazonMarketplace already has stock pictures ready for you to use. If you want to add your own photo, you can. I never have, and I’ve sold a lot of stuff on AmazonMarketplace.
2. You don’t have to write descriptions. Again, AmazonMarketplace already has product descriptions available for almost everything.
3. Instead of monitoring an auction, all you have to do is check your email to see if an item sold. When one of your items sells, you’ll get an email notification with a link right back to the item you’re trying to sell.
4. Amazon’s Seller Center is easy to use and navigate. It’s easy to check your inventory, and even see how your pricing compares to other sellers’ pricing.
5. Purchase postage directly through Amazon. To streamline things even more, I purchase my postage through Amazon. It automatically marks the product as shipped, and I print off a shipping label at home. I use USPS, and have the mail carrier pick up my packages at my house so I don’t have to make a trip to the post office (which for me, is 15 miles away).
6. You can sell almost anything on Amazon. AmazonMarketplace isn’t just for books. I’ve sold electronics, baby items, and home items on Amazon too.
Amazon does take a percentage of your sale proceeds as a commission. The commission varies depending on what you sell, and how much you sell it for. Sometimes I think the commission is a bit high, but it’s well worth it to be able to make my for-sale items available to such a wide audience.
I also like that I don’t have to meet up with people to sell items, like I would have to on Craigslist or Offer Up.
Have you sold on AmazonMarketplace? Do you have any tips to make it easier or more worthwhile?
