The first thing you need to do is figure out what type of products you’d like to sell. You may already have products you’re interested in selling, but if not, you’ll need to source products.
You can use one of several apps to scan barcodes for products you’re interested in selling in order to find out how well that item is currently selling, how much it is currently selling for, and how much profit you’re likely to make on that item.

Note – Do not forget to use thrive content builder review for your amazon FBA website.
- Clearance racks
- Wholesale warehouses like Sam’s Club and Costco
- Thrift stores
- Garage sales
- Flea markets
- Discount stores
- BOGO (buy one, get one free) deals
- Bulk deals
- Overstock stores and websites
Be sure that anything you buy is in the best possible condition, because if a customer returns an item, you are responsible for that. For example, if Amazon has already paid you (and you’ve had no new sales since then) and a customer returns an item, Amazon could charge your credit card for the full price that buyer paid. Otherwise, the amount will be deducted from whatever Amazon currently owes you.
You need to consider is competition. If you find a product you’re interested in selling, it’s important to be sure there aren’t already a large number of sellers who are selling exactly the same product, because it will cut into your profits if too many people are selling it.
