Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment
« on: September 19, 2018, 03:52:34 PM »
Ok, so I'm looking at using MCF for some eBay sales and potentially other places as well.

What are the characteristics of products that would provide a cost benefit over the cost of shipping myself. For example, almost everything I have in my inventory is under 1 pound and the cost to use MCF is consistently more expensive than if I shipped the inventory myself by at least $1 and in many cases more than $2.50. So I know that for those types of items, MCF does not make sense unless something is at a really high price point.

I just haven't figured out what type of products are good for MCF or some common characteristics that would make sense from a cost-benefit analysis. Any help would be appreciated.

To be honest, I've never done MCF.
We used to have several sellers here who were into MCF big and tied it together with affiliate ads.
Those sellers not only used eBay but also their own websites.

You're on the right track with the stats you posted though.

Gimme a couple of days to get back into the swing and I'll do more research.

I'm pleased with what I have up on eBay and it's sales and would feel comfortable with using MCF if the cost justified.
You can and could double your sales (if not more) by using this service and I applaud that you are considering.

From what I hear it works smooth as silk.

I don't work hard enough on eBay or sell enough on eBay to justify the extra $.
