Selling on Amazon - How to Sell on Amazon from China, Alibaba, Aliexpress, Home or Outside the US

In today’s post, I will be sharing with you how to sell on Amazon from China, Alibaba, AliExpress, from home, outside the US or anywhere else in the world. Although Amazon only allows people living in certain countries to register an Amazon seller account, most countries are already included in their list of countries allowed for seller registration

If your country of residence is not listed above, you are simply not allowed to sell on Amazon.

I will now discuss in brief, a few important topics involved in selling on Amazon.

Selling on Amazon Involves the Following:

  • Setting up Your Seller and Buyer Accounts
  • Product Research – Finding Hot and Profitable Product(s) to Sell
  • Private Labeling Your Product – If you want to sell your own brand
  • Finding the Right Supplier for Your Product(s)
  • Amazon FBA – Fulfillment by Amazon
  • Shipping Your Inventory to Amazon
  • Listing Your Product on Amazon
  • Getting Your Product in Front of Potential Customers

Setting up your seller and buyer accounts

 A seller account is an account needed to register as an Amazon seller.

Buyer accounts are accounts needed to source products from suppliers such as Alibaba and AliExpress.

Product Research – finding hot and profitable product(s) to sell

This is the most important part of selling on Amazon. A thorough product research always determines your success or failure as an Amazon seller. There are many ways to conduct a thorough product research. I recommend using automated tools that can literally cut your product research time in half, or even by eighty percent. The only tool I recommend is AMZ Tracker. Check it out and make good use of it.

Private labeling your product

If you don’t have your own product to sell on Amazon, I recommend searching for private label products from suppliers and create your own brand to sell. This is what I consider the best way to sell on Amazon. You can even sell your brand at a later stage, nothing stops you from taking this route.

Finding the right supplier for your product

 As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, this is just a brief discussion on how to sell on Amazon from China, Alibaba, AliExpress, outside the US or anywhere else in the world.

After doing more research on the subject, I found the following tips useful and worthy of sharing with you.

Useful Tips on Selling on Amazon

  • Never buy products from your suppliers in bulk, wait until you have their samples in your hands.
  • Never sell something you still wouldn’t buy even if you needed it.
  • Love what you are selling, others will love it too (put yourself in your potential buyer’s shoes).
  • Never let your suppliers convince you that they can’t meet your minimum order, this is just them trying to sell as much as they can to you.
  • Never pay your supplier using any form of payment except PayPal or Trade Assurance during the first 3 to 4 months of your business. You are still in the process of building trust with someone you have never done business with before.
  • Never conduct business with companies that do not accept the above-mentioned payment methods. They have been shut down!
  • Never buy a lot of products while you are in the early stages of selling on Amazon. Ten to twenty items are more than enough to test the markets. You can scale up as per product demand.
  • Never use your personal email address. This is something that I mentioned in the early chapters of the eBook.

    I always thought about selling on Amazon but I was put off on the idea as it sounded very complex. Thank you for this article. It explained the process very clear and I find the tips very useful and informative. I might just give it a go now. Cheers.

I am glad you found this post helpful and hope you achieve success with your Amazon business. If you don’t mind me asking, what sort of products are you planning to sell?

    • Peter Mantu Post author

      Hi Jamin,

      I am not sure I understand what you mean about getting an affiliate partner for Alibaba. Alibaba is a directory of product suppliers. Why you need an affiliate partner is something I really don’t understand. Could you shed some light on this, please? Thanks for your comment and I hope to hear from you soon.

    I’ve always wondered what alibaba was… of course I know about amazon, but this was a real eye opening! I love ALiexpress because it’s a great vehicle for drop shipping. Thanks again for writing about these great products.
