Selling on Amazon FBA
Now that you have set up your store on Amazon and
are up and Selling on Amazon FBA, its time to
understand some pitfalls as well. We have
gathered few points which you should understand
to avoid any losses while selling on Amazon FBA.
1. Tax Setup
Many sellers While Selling on Amazon FBA, forget
to set up the tax thinking that Amazon will take
care of everything. While Amazon may be willing
to collect taxes on behalf of its sellers, it
does charge a fee for the same which also
includes remittances. A good idea is to collect
your taxes and pay your liabilities on time to
avoid incurring long dues.
2. Incorrect Prices and Inventory
When you create a listing on Amazon, the prices
go live immediately as there is no option for a
practice box where you can see everything before
it goes live. Indicate zero inventory if you do
not have one. Also, do not overstate if you have
an inventory. Overselling may also lead to
account suspension.
3. Wrong Product Listings
Almost is not considered good on Amazon. Try to
match your products to the correct listing and
double check it. Stating its almost the same
colour, or almost the same style may not work
in your favour and customers may turn to other
sellers. You can also get suspended for not
correctly matching your products to the listing
in the catalogue if a
4. Slow Customer Service As an Amazon seller
who are Selling on Amazon FBA, you get 24 hours
to respond to each customer inquiry received,
irrespective of the time of day, or of the week.
Amazon can ding you if you take more than 24
hours to answer and too many dings will result in
your account getting suspended.
5. Customer Feedback Customer feedback is
tracked for quality (e.g., 5 out of 5 stars), as
well as for quantity (typically 2-5 percent of
all sales should get feedback). The Amazons

Product Quality checks this.
  • 6. Fulfillment Errors
  • There are some sellers who when new to the system
    of FBA tend to make mistakes in Selling on Amazon
    FBA such as late shipping, error in providing
    shipping information, or cancellation of orders
    due to unavailability of the products.
  • As a new seller who just start selling on Amazon
    FBA, you should make sure the first 10 orders are
    perfectly fulfilled shipped on time, and their
    tracking information is timely entered into the
    Amazon system.

  • 7. Competing Against Amazon
  • This one is a bit tricky. If your products
    compete directly with Amazon Retail, dont expect
    to get many sales, or at profitable levels. Since
    Amazon Retail controls its ability to win the
    competitive sale even at unprofitable levels, you
    are sure to lose and leave.
  • It is a good practice to check whether Amazon
    Retail sells the same items today for which you
    plan to buy an inventory. There are several free
    tools to check it, which will help you find if
    Amazon Retail has recently offered that product
    but may be currently out of stock
