You may be wondering why you should sell on Amazon when you already
have a store? Well, whether you have a physical store or not, there
are many advantages of being able to sell your products on Amazon.
Initially, you have to set up an Amazon seller account and get your
products listed on their catalog. Then, you will be able to manage all
the orders and payments through Amazon’s online platform.
Now, why should you sell your products on Amazon?
- Partner with a giant. In 2010, Amazon was ranked as the number 1 online retailer in the world. It sales increased by 40% to $34 billion. Amazon billed 10% of all online retail sales in North America. Of course, a small local business like yours will not be able to topple down a big company like Amazon. If you can’t beat them, join them! That is why you should take advantage of their clout and benefit from their success.
- More credibility. While you can sell your products on your own local business website, there are a good number of people that are cautious buying from you. Why? Many people are hesitant in buying online as there are many scams involving online buying and credit card information used for fraud.

millions of consumers. By selling your products on Amazon, you can
create a relationship with satisfied customers without any doubt
before buying – since they trust Amazon.

This kind of affiliation requires lots of efforts and money and as an Amazon seller, you get to enjoy all the rewarding benefits in a more convenient and less expensive way. The partners you will gain from this is far more than what you will be able to make if you would do this on your own for your business.
- A bigger marketplace. The worldwide reach of Amazon helps you sell beyond your locale. You can sell to customers from anywhere in the world! You just have to plan a good shipping process.
