How Much Does it Cost to Sell on Amazon?
Posted On May 12, 2020
Today, it’s a bad idea to skip calculating the cost of selling on Amazon. Because if you don’t know how much it costs, you will have no idea if your product is a good fit for Amazon or not.
Most people believe that to sell on Amazon it costs nothing. But as a consumer, I would like to see you do your homework before starting any business.
First, I think we all agree that the internet is free. So by definition, the internet is also free.
The second thing we agree on is that the Amazon platform is the most popular way to market e-books. So there is absolutely no way to sell e-books on Amazon without using the Amazon platform.
The cost of selling on Amazon is the item cost and the FBA fee. The amount of profit you make depends upon how much you sell, and how quickly you sell it.
The cost of selling on Amazon is the retail price of your product plus the Fulfillment Fee. This fee is calculated by the Amazon seller.
The Fulfillment Fee is based on several factors including the number of units you are expecting to sell. If you anticipate selling more than one thousand units per month, you can expect to pay about $30 per month.
The Fulfillment Fee is not included in the cost of selling on Amazon. If the Fulfillment Fee is not included in your monthly profit, then you will have to deduct it from your income to arrive at a final cost per sale.
The seller Central marketplace, or the Seller Central website, is where you will get the information you need to determine the cost of selling on Amazon. It’s easy to find.
To start, click on “Account” and look for the section called “Amazon.” From here, you will be able to calculate the cost of selling on Amazon.
The “Total Cost Per Sale” tab will give you an estimate of the total cost of selling on Amazon. Click the button “Display Total Cost” to get an estimate of how much your selling on Amazon will cost you each month.
By using the Seller Central Marketplace, you can calculate the cost of selling on Amazon. And if you already know how much it costs, you can confidently write your marketing plan.
