How To Start Dropshipping On Amazon
From finding the right products to setting up your store, to finding and working with suppliers, we’ll cover everything you need to know to get started.
What is Dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a business model where a retailer, like yourself, doesn’t keep the products it sells in stock, instead, when a customer places an order, the retailer purchases the item from a third-party supplier, who then ships it directly to the customer. This means that as a drop shipper, you don’t have to worry about holding or managing inventory. You only need to focus on finding products to sell and promoting them to your customers.
Finding the Right Products
When it comes to finding products to dropship on Amazon, it’s important to consider the demand for the product, the competition, and the profit margin. To research profitable products, you can use tools like Jungle Scout, Helium 10, or Google Trends. These tools will help you to identify products that have high demand, low competition, and a good profit margin. You can also look at best-seller lists, and customer reviews to get an idea of what products are popular.
Setting up Your Amazon Store
To set up your Amazon store, you will need to sign up for a professional seller account. Once you have an account, you will be able to list your products, set your prices, and manage your inventory. It’s important to have a clear and professional-looking store, with high-quality images and detailed product descriptions. You can also use Amazon’s tools like A+ content and Enhanced Brand Content to make your listings stand out.
When it comes to finding suppliers, it’s important to find a supplier that is reliable, offers fair prices and has a good reputation. One way to find suppliers is to use a wholesale directory like Alibaba or SaleHoo. These directories list a wide range of suppliers, and you can use filters to find the suppliers that meet your criteria. You can also reach out to manufacturers directly and ask if they offer dropshipping.
Marketing and Optimizing Your Listings
Once you have your store set up and your products listed, it’s important to promote them to drive sales. You can use Amazon’s advertising tools like Sponsored Products, Sponsored Brands, and Sponsored Display to increase visibility and drive more sales. You can also use other marketing strategies like Influencer marketing, email marketing, and social media marketing to promote your products. Optimizing your listing for SEO is also essential to increase visibility and drive more sales.
Handling Orders and Fulfillment
It’s important to ensure that your supplier is using the right packaging and labeling so that your products arrive to your customers in good condition. You should also have a good system in place to track your orders and communicate with your customers. You can use Amazon’s built-in tools, or a third-party app, to manage your orders and customer communication.
