10 Things You Need to Know For a Profitable Q4!

Guest blog post by Stephen from Full-Time FBA blog So here we are, approaching the last quarter of 2017 and it's shaping up to be the biggest ever for Amazon sellers, but whilst most of you will enjoy higher sales, you're leaving a lot of opportunities on the table if you don't do anything differently to maximise how much you sell, and for how much. In this guest blog by Stephen from Full-Time FBA shares ten things you need to know to maximise profits and sales during this bumper period.   1. Amazon's busy Q4 is November to January Although most of us think of October to December as the fourth quarter, Stephen reminds us that, in terms of Amazon sales, November to January is when things really happen for Amazon sellers, so prepare yourself for a busy November and don't panic too much if October isn't keeping you too busy.   2. Keep plenty of stock for January too For many sellers, January can be almost as busy and profitable as December, when many shoppers use those Amazon gift cards to get what they actually wanted

6 Ways To Improve Your Amazon Product Listings

Guest post by The Copywriting Professor Selling on Amazon? Here are the top six ways to optimise your listings for increased sales, a better ranking, improved conversion… and more money in your pocket! 1. Here’s the #1 way to squeeze every last dime out of your listings. Have you had your listing text (copy) optimised? Who wrote the copy for your listings? You could be missing out on potentially thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars in lost revenue because: A: Your listings aren’t attracting as much traffic they could be because they’re lacking the proper keywords in the right places B: Your listings aren’t converting as much of the traffic (turning browsers into buyers) as they should be because your listings aren’t written in a way that’s compelling or benefit-driven enough to convince someone who is browsing to push the “Add to Cart” button. If you haven’t invested in having your listings written by a qualified copywriter who specialises in Amazon listings…I would highly, highly recommend trying it. This could be one of the best investments you make this year. Do a test with

How to Dropship on eBay

Some of the best online sellers know that making money is having that money work for you, not the other way around. And with dropshipping being the epitome of that, RepricerExpress wants to take a deeper look into it. You can learn how to invest intangibles by dropshipping on eBay to turn those efforts into profits, and we’ve got the guide on how to do it on ebay.   Dropshipping Isn’t Entirely Without a Startup Cash Flow Usually when you sell online, you have an inventory of items that a buyer browses and selects from. But with dropshipping, you do away with the inventory. Instead, buyers select an item on your page and buy it — but they’re buying that product from the wholesaler. You’re just acting as a sort of representative for the wholesaler. When the customer puts in an order, you pass that order onto the wholesaler and they ship it to the customer, and you pay for the shipping charges. eBay allows dropshipping as long as you keep up your end of the eBay bargain: to guarantee delivery within 30 days of

How to Succeed With Amazon Exclusives

Not sure what Amazon Exclusives are? That’s okay! We here at RepricerExpress will break it all down for you, from what kind of sellers it’s a good idea for to how to succeed the hardest at it. Ready to have your mind lightly blown? Read on, grasshopper!   Amazon Exclusives: You Can’t Get It Anywhere Else In 2015, Amazon launched a new store on their platform that consisted of products you wouldn’t be able to find on other ecommerce sites. It wanted to sell an aura of exclusivity, which tends to breed interest and longing and money. People tend to want what they can’t have most anywhere else and/or what other people don’t have, with that the driving force behind Exclusives. When it first started, some of the products were those featured on the show Shark Tank, among others from sellers who agreed to sell only on Amazon and in their own stores (both online and off). It did pretty well for its first year, too, with Reuters reporting that Amazon made sales that topped $50 million. Another one of Amazon’s motivations in working with
