For many years, Amazon has been confidentially leading the pack in e-commerce, leaving behind online giants such as eBay and Walmart. During 2020, Amazon beat all the records in sales and showed an amazing result by reporting a net income of $21.33 billion. As a result, we see more and more people who wish to start their business on Amazon.
However, before jumping into this field, one should keep in mind that there are lots of barriers that they can meet as beginners during their operation on Amazon.
Today, we are going to bring to your attention more common challenges that new Amazon sellers can experience in their Amazon business.
Keep in mind that at early stages of your new business, you will not receive any profit . Moreover, you will have to invest in your business in order to maintain your inventory. If you do not have much money for investing in your successful start-up, then you can consider other Amazon business models such as Drop shipping or Retailer Arbitrage.
A Strong Stream of Competition!
Nowadays, there are more than 10 million sellers who successfully run their business on Amazon. This hard competition may become a reason for different issues for new sellers. However, there are lots of tips and useful strategies which will help you overcome all the obstacles within your operation.
One of the hardest issues that new Amazon sellers can meet during their operation on Amazon is pricing. Here you have to find an optimal balance in order to generate profit from your sales and gain more customers’ attention to your products. There are lots of useful tools provided by Amazon which can help you set the right price on your products.
Getting Amazon Feedback!
Feedback is one of the most crucial aspects when it comes to selling on Amazon. That’s because it is one of the ranking factors that Amazon’s algorithm considers during your operation. However, there are several important aspects that you should be aware of when it comes to sellers’ feedback. First of all, you are not allowed to ask your customers for a review or feedback in exchange for free products, or contact your customers by using their personal information. The only way that you are allowed to communicate with buyers is through the buyer-seller messaging system.
As a beginner on Amazon, you should be aware of the fact that there are lots of restrictions that Amazon sets on several categories of products. And you are not allowed to sell these items, until you get Amazon’s permission for selling them through your platform. You can read one of our previous blogs where we talk about Amazon gated categories list. Therefore,it is better to avoid selling products from these categories; otherwise, you risk facing Amazon’s suspension and your Amazon account will be suspended until you solve the cause of your account’s suspension. If you do not have enough experience in handling such kinds of issues by yourself, you can reach out to Got Suspended Clients who are the best in providing account reinstatement services. After reviewing your case, they will provide you with a carefully drafted Amazon appeal letter which will help you reinstate your account in the fastest way.
They say “Do not Cross the bridge until you come to it.” You are neither the first nor the finest who starts selling on Amazon; all you need to do is just to be informed about the most important aspects that you can face during your operation on this platform. Even if you have made several mistakes in your operation, keep in mind that most people’s success rises out of the ashes of their previous failures.
