Wish me luck. Just started listing books on Amazon
« on: April 29, 2012, 02:53:02 PM »
I have so many books and decided to try Amazon. I was surprised how easy it is to list. Do not have a pro account (or whatever they call it) yet, but will if I start selling. Here is a link to my listings.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/shops/storefront/index.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sellerID=A1APHWORKQDYAK

If anyone has any advice, I would be most appreciative. <--- never mind, just found a thread here on ASM that will read. It should help.  :077

I've helped several people get going, just email if you have ?

Don't race to $0.01.  I listed a book for $50 when the only other one was listed for that.  When it sold, I checked for competition, and there was one listed at $9.99.

Book rate is not always cheapest, I think 5 oz and under.

If you like simplicity of listing, you'll love order fulfillment.  You hear nothing until they have the money, and tell you to ship.

Unless they've changed, you get no money for 15-45 days, then a lump sum to your bank account.  There were two kinds of accounts.  The original allowed you to withdraw daily once past the initial holding period.  The other, you got a transfer every 15 days, period.  They may only have that type now.

I've sold books on the River.  :h0161 As long as they aren't mass-produced pop stuff (AKA 1 cent books), they do well. Even then you can make a buck or so with the $3.99 shipping, if they were cheap enough to you and not too heavy. In my case, getting some stuff out of the house was the goal, lol. So although the goal is usually to make a lot of bux, getting the mass-produced stuff out of my house with a bit of profit was OK.  :laugh: But I did OK with the other stuff. I love the River.  :heartkiss

Thanks for your offer of help if I have ?s BF.  Suze, nice to hear of your good experience on Amazon as well.  My thoughts have been that I have too many books that are just sitting, better to make some money, even if only a bit.

BF, I'm not rushing to the $0.01.  For now at least, makes no sense to moi.  Think I'll read up on order fulfillment.....may have questions then...  :)

I had a great experience selling books on Amazon, too.
Book selling is what brought me to sell on the river.
I still have a domain URL for selling books...need to do something with it eventually.

Don't forget about DVDs...I did really well with that media, also.

Best of Luck!

Sold two books. I have listed some CDs too. I have 52 listings now. It's so darn easy to list with Amazon. I'm a happy camper so far.

Thanks Donna! Sold one more thing Monday...up to three sales now. Waiting for first feedback which I hope, of course, is positive.

It will be.
<smile>

Feedback from a customer via Amazon purchase is very, VERY low.
Average amount of customers that leave feedback is somewhere between 10% and 20%
20% is high in my opinion...I figure it to be around 10% to 12%

Amazon's FB rating would get them thrown off any legitimate site.

Up to 4 sales now..., the 4th being Donna. You are such a dear heart Donna! I cannot thank you ENOUGH.  :up

BF, I'm one of those peeps who has not taken the time to leave FB on Amazon. I feel differently about that now...obviously.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone!  :)

AZ FB is a PITA and toadly unnecessary.  A-Z claims covers everything, so it doesn't matter who you buy from.

FBA, FBA, FBA
LOL

Seriously we haven't had time to even look back since we join Amazon and went fulfilled by Amazon.  Today's pay day was the highest since Christmas.  Triple what we've ever done anywhere else easy!
sock monkeys at www.OurSockMonkey.com and of course everything at www.FilthyRichFashions.com

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why we call it the present!

Now all you gotta do is stockpile during the dead months, so when you get hit hard, Amazon can do their thing while you do yours.

Fubba-

You ship your stuph to Amazon, and they sell it at your price and ship it.

When busy season hits and you can't keep up, it ain't your problem.
