What is “Fulfillment By Amazon”?
In short, it is the ultimate online sales and automation tool.
My story, if you’re still reading…
In 2007, I was at a garage sale and bought a photography book for $1. A week later I sold it on Amazon for $450.
At that point, I dove in to selling books on Amazon. Sometimes literally – most of my early inventory came from dumpsters at a university recycling center.
I was (mostly) broke and (very) driven to make my own hours with an internet-based business. Over the next several years, I worked to achieve Amazon bookselling mastery. It was a leisurely – but humble – internet business.
Fast forward to 2010. I was making a cross-country move, and transporting my Amazon inventory was cost-prohibitive. I researched Amazon’s “Fulfillment by Amazon” (FBA) program, where Amazon stores and ships your inventory for you, doing most of the work. Still skeptical, I shipped Amazon my inventory of books and DVDs and held my breath.
My sales exploded, and my once-part time business became a full-time obsession.
From that point, I committed myself to learning everything there was to know about Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). This website will track my ongoing learning experience into FBA: an emerging e-commerce tool that is making a small number of people a lot of money.

“Peter Valley’s book sourcing information is the best I’ve seen anywhere –and that was 90 percent of our business plan the first year we sold on Amazon.com. His information is up to date, clearly written and on the money.”
“Peter Valley of FBA Mastery has opened my eyes.”
Mike Monticue / Ambooked.com
“If it hadn’t been for Peter Valley’s e-book Amazon Autopilot, I probably would have quit book selling on Amazon. There is so much good and useful information on how to source and price your books and how the ranking works that I decided to put an all-out effort to make this work and it has started to pay off.”
Robert Held, Browns Valley, California
“Amazon Autopilot: How to Start an Online Business with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), and Let Them Do the Work, that really opened my mind to new ways to think about my Amazon Business. Even though I have been selling on Amazon for over 7 years, I learned a ton of new information and techniques.
Unlike many authors, Peter holds nothing back. He shares all his selling secrets and really gets into the kind of detail you need. He shows you how to get the most out of FBA and let Amazon do the work for you.”
Skip McGrath, eBay & Amazon Seller’s News
“Amazon Autopilot, offers enough good information to get a novice internet seller off on the right track to FBA success or make the polished professional say, ‘Why Didn’t I know that?'”.
Chet Hastings, Traveling with FBA

“My seller bible! Every aspect of FBA selling is spelled out simply but clearly, including a detailed explanation of the importance (or lack of) of Amazon sales rank. I would recommend it to anyone.”
“This was by far worth the cost many times over. There are other books ive read that i didn’t learn anything new from, and this was not one.”
John III, Online Selling Reviews
“My hubby starts to get jealous because I always refer to you when I try to explain anything regarding sales rank and book selection!”
