With most available literature on Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon)), you get one of two things. On one hand those, who oversell the ease of setting up and maintaining an FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) business. On the other, those who downplay the huge benefits. Let’s talk about the first one.
My monthly overhead just to keep the FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) pirate ship afloat is well over $700. That includes monthly subscriptions for a scouting program and FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) listing interface, labels, unlimited data on my phone, and FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) storage fees, packing tape, an Amazon Pro-Merchant account, internet service, gas, and shipping costs. Can you put $700 a month into your business?
You should not sell via Fulfillment By Amazon if you can’t afford startup costs.
I didn’t even touch startup costs. It’s going to be about $600 out of the gate. That includes a barcode scanner, label printer, smart phone, etc.
If you can clear those hurdles, glorious things await you on the other side.
