Amazon is #1 BUT…

Amazon may be #1 but does that help the seller or do the fees out weight the profit margin. Today everyone wants a piece of the internet and they will work for nickles and dimes just t o make the sale. There is a better way. 

Amazon may be the world’s biggest online retailer, but according to this interesting article from the Huffington Post, it would seem this retail giant is starting to rub many of its merchants the wrong way! For the past year, Amazon has been increasing fees for its third party merchants – leaving many of them very frustrated.

Increased fees often mean that cost is passed on to the consumer – meaning fewer deals and ultimately fewer third party merchants that want to do business with you. At Market America and SHOP.COM, we take pride in the relationships we’ve built with our partner stores – and work hard to ensure that everyone benefits from doing business with us.

I have been a business owner for over 25 years but can say for the first time; “I own my business it doesn’t own me.” I have traded in my Brick and Mortar for a Click and Order. This gives me financial and time freedom. My business is operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week with no employees. I wake up when I am done sleeping and am able to work anywhere in the world there is a WiFi connection.

However, it was an all day affair & after paying the fees associated with each service I ended up with a very low profit margin per item. The fears competition among other sellers using eBay & Amazon meant having to mark down your product to the lowest bitter. My venture quickly became a lot of  work for very little compensation. […]
