Additional suggestions for selling Private Label on Amazon

Aside from picking a product that has a good chance of succeeding, make sure it has the following attributes to make it as easy to sell and ship as possible:

  1. The aspects of your product should be simple to explain: Electronics might be enjoyable to sell, but they sometimes come with a slew of headaches and poor customer service. The same can be said for fashion and clothing items, which may need having several colors and sizes for a single SKU. As a result, you should consider twice before purchasing any products from these categories.
  2. Avoid seasonal products: Seasonal products are not the greatest choice for Amazon Private Label because you want to have year-round sales. Christmas products, or practically any holiday products, winter clothes, and so on are some examples.
  3. Your product should be simple to transport: Make sure it fits into a tiny flat-rate package and weighs no more than one or two pounds. This will save you money on manufacturer shipping and during the fulfilment process.
  4. Minimize paperwork: Food, toys, and batteries, for example, might be difficult to sell if they include any “red tape.” Choose things that are simple to make and don’t require any legal paperwork or certificates.

 

Consider the following product features:

So, what kinds of private label items should you try to sell?

If you’re just getting started, I strongly advise you to start with products that contain the following characteristics:

  1. Compact and light: Your item should fit into a compact flat-rate box (8 11/16′′ x 5 7/16′′ x 1 3/4′′) and weigh no more than one or two pounds. This saves you money on shipping from the manufacturer as well as afterwards when the order is completed (either by you, or by Amazon FBA).
  2. Non-seasonal: The sales of your product should not be affected by the seasons. Christmas lights, Valentine’s Day gifts, winter apparel, and other seasonal merchandise are examples. When at all possible, avoid these.
  3. Unregulated: Certain products, such as food, toys, and batteries, are subject to “red tape” that can make it impossible to sell them. Stick to things that are simple to make and transport, as well as items that don’t require a lot of legal paperwork and/or certifications.
  4. Uncomplicated: Electronics can be fun to sell, but they often come with a lot of headaches and customer service issues. The same can be said for fashion and clothing items, which may need having several colors and sizes for a single SKU.
