What Is Amazon Dropshipping and How Does It Work?

So, how do you get started with Amazon dropshipping? Dropshipping is possible with Amazon’s Fulfilled by Amazon program.

In this service, you ship your products to Amazon where they carry the inventory and ship directly to your clients.

The advantage of this program is that Amazon has some of the shortest shipping periods on the market, which means your consumers will receive their orders even faster. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the twenty-first century, it’s that customers demand speedy delivery times.

Is it Legal to Dropship on Amazon?

Yes, Amazon allows dropshipping as long as you follow to a few easy criteria.

You must always be the vendor of your products on record.

On all packing slips and other information contained or provided in connection with your items, identify yourself as the seller.

You’ll be in responsible of receiving and processing client goods returns.

All other terms and conditions of your seller agreement, as well as any applicable Amazon policies, must be followed to.

Dropshipping is not authorized in the following situations:

Purchasing items from another online store and having them shipped directly to customers.

Ship orders with packing slips, invoices, or other documents that lists a different seller’s name or contact information than yours.

How Much Does Starting Dropshipping on Amazon Cost?

To use Amazon dropshipping, you must first create an Amazon seller account. The Individual plan costs $0.99 per unit sold, whereas the Professional plan costs $39.99 regardless of the number of things sold.

Dropshipping fees on Amazon vary by product type, but are normally between 10% and 15%. This may not be possible for those with small profit margins.


Is Dropshipping on Amazon Profitable?

It’s possible. The average dropshipper makes a profit margin of 10% to 30% on their products. If they dropship through Amazon, the platform will deduct about 15% of their total revenue.

If you sell a product at a 30% profit margin, your net profit after selling it on Amazon will be 15%. This is a good deal, especially considering the large audience you’ll be able to reach.

Note: Winning the Amazon Buy Box can increase your Amazon dropshipping profits, but it’s extremely competitive and shouldn’t be your primary emphasis at first.
