Select department

The journey to Amazon starts from Amazon

Navigate to Amazon departments and browse products in each one. This will give a brief idea about what to launch. You should feel the market so don’t hurry and spend up to 1 hour a day browsing the departments.

Avoid locked departments

Some Amazon departments require a special approval to sell in them. It’s wise to skip them for your first launch to save your time and increase the success of whole deal. Some of these categories are:

  • Health & Beauty
  • Grocery

Consult the Amazon to get the complete list of restricted categories

Avoid Electronics

The main problem with China electronics that there is a really big chance of defective items in your shipment. Percentage of defect can be up to 20%. This will lead to returns, negative feedback and customer displeasure. As a result your listing will be blocked. So don’t bother with electronic devices if you are not sure what you are doing.

Home & kitchen and Sports & outdoors are number one in your list

These categories provide the plenty of relatively simple products that can be made with minimal defect percentage. At the same time these products will unlikely be broken during the shipment. Of course don’t choose glass items.
