Selling on Amazon

When considering setting up an online store, one possibility to research is setting up services with well established sites with large current customer bases in order to increase visibility and establish trust with your customers.  Amazon has 81 million active customers.  Here are some of the details on setting up a site with Amazon.

Amazon charges $39.99 per month plus an 8% – 20% per transaction fee.  These charges include:

  • Website set up
  • Pay-per-click marketing fees that a retailer will incur in order to promote and drive traffic to an individual retail site
  • Commissions to referral partners
  • Credit Card Processing Fees

There is an application approval process with Amazon.  There are some restricted (closed) categories such as apparel, gourmet, jewelry, watches, beauty and personal computers.   Amazon currently has numerous retailers in these categories and therefore, as a rule, will not accept additional retailers in these areas.
