The internet is a great resource for learning. One of the best ways to improve your ecommerce knowledge (aside from the RepricerExpress blog) is forums. There are a plethora of different options out there so for your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of the ten best ecommerce forums we feel offer value to you as an Amazon seller. You’ll find lots of useful information and helpful sellers on these forums covering a wide range of topics from marketing to fulfilment methods.
1. Amazon Seller Central
Amazon Seller Central lets you discuss selling on Amazon and other Amazon services with fellow sellers. Forum threads include general selling questions, help for new sellers, FBA queries and other Amazon services such as Amazon Payments.
Although not a forum, Tamebay is a great resource for UK sellers selling on Amazon and eBay. Sellers can keep up to date with all the latest happenings and developments across the ecommerce world. It’s updated frequently and you can sign up to their newsletter for a daily round-up of the top news to be delivered straight to your inbox.
Tamebay also provides a handy ecommerce guide to top seller software like RepricerExpress and ebooks covering a wide range of useful topics. You’ll find the articles well written and informative and they also have some great guest bloggers including yours truly!
The site was founded by Chris Dawson and Sue Bailey, two British PowerSellers. Between them, they traded on eBay for nearly two decades, and have more than 50,000 positive feedback comments (and just 2 negatives!). Dan Wilson, the author of Make Serious Money on eBay UK, Amazon and Beyond is now co-editor at Tamebay.
3. Web Retailer
Web Retailer is run by Andy Geldman and offers help for eBay and Amazon users looking for third-party software and services. The site has four main sections: a software directory including independent reviews, a forum, webinars and finally a blog section. You’ll find the interviews with sellers and research into big topics really insightful and well researched—a definite read for anyone serious about selling online.
4. Warrior Forum
Warrior Forum is a great place to go if you’re looking for discussions about ecommerce marketing. Search engine optimisation, Amazon PPC, email marketing, and more are all covered by the site, so if you have a question about how to expand the reach of your website, it can be found here. Some other threads you can find cover growth hacking, social media, ecommerce sites in general, website design and link building.
5. Startup Bros
Startup Bros was founded by Will Mitchell and Kyle Eschenroeder, two best friends and entrepreneurs who’ve been obsessed with business and the internet since birth. The website has a forum section for members and they write superb blog posts around topics such as importing from China.
If you want to become a successful entrepreneur then this is a good place to start.
6. UK Business Forums
UK Business Forums is a great resource especially if you’re running a business in the UK. One of the main threads outlines some of the best UK merchant accounts, so this would obviously not have anything to do with those in the US or elsewhere throughout the world.
That said, it may be useful if you’re planning on expanding to the UK.
