    Welcome to my First Journey.
    [h=2]Amazon FBA Journey to.....Freedom[/h]​

    FBA - Fulfillment by Amazon.


    I will not go into the details what is FBA here is how it works in simple steps:


    1. You send your products to Amazon (Merchant will ship my product straight to the Amazon warehouse in USA)
    2. Amazon stores your products.
    3. Customers order your products.
    4. Amazon picks and packs your products.
    5. Amazon ships your products. (Amazon will pay me to Payoneer bank account).
    Straight to the point.
    Almost 2 month back I sold my adsense website for $3k :) to get investment for this project.

    What I have done in these two month:


    1. Founded bestseller product in Amazon.
    2. Founded Merchant in Alibaba.
    3. Ordered sample product.
    4. Bought Logo design (will Label my product)
    5. Bought UPC bar-code
    6. Created graphic for printable box and paid 30% deposit for merchant that printing can be started.
    7. DIY photo studio at home, see picture :) to make pictures for my product. I have Nikon camera.

    8. Bought 3 domains - one for my brand, second with my keyword combination and third with exact match keywords in domain from my niche with 6k searches.

    9. Work on my product pictures and on the websites - graphic, content and backlinks.
    Now I have paid all the rest 70% payment for my product and tomorrow the goods will be shipped to Amazon warehouse. Finally :)
    Meanwhile I will work on my product pictures and will prepare content that I will need to advertise my product.

    Total investments so far - 1595 usd + time :)


    I've spent a lot of prayers about my life and about things how to do them the right way, Yes I believe in Jesus and he gives me the meaning of life and freedom. I want to quit my 8 to 5 job and spend more time with family and want to help others - I believe it will happen very soon :)

    Psalm 37:34 "Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."

    I will share here my experience with FBA and I hope this journey will help someone to find freedom. So if you have questions - fell free and ask here :) And I will try to update this thread regularly.

    God will help us... :)

    Thanks

    Martins

    Good luck man. Explain me one thing. How you will pay extra legal tax when product arrive to UK ? UPS will ask you to pay directly ? For example when i order to portugal i have to pay on delivery extra tax because order come outside europe. Same will happen when order arrive united kingdom.
    Thank you

    You have a plan, stick with it and you will make money. Where most people go wrong is they give up to easily.

    Good luck mate

    Thanks.

    Hm... Not sure about this! But all my products will go straight to Amazon USA. In my country if I order something from USA, Non Europe countries then I need to pay taxes as buyer and only if amount $$$ are more than its mentioned in the law.

    Thanks. :)

    Sure. I Created picture blog and got traffic 30k/month from social sites. Site earned 200-300$/month. But It was not my niche and picture blogs must be updated with fresh content every day so I decided to sell.

    Thanks

    Best of luck with your project, and congratulation for believing in Jesus Christ!- He is just my Best Friend and Saviour. I listed my site adsense site on flippa and will be selling another amazon affiliate site earning $100 /month soon. Can someone outside USA venture into this? I have read a lot about it and am planning to do it but my location might be a barrier.

    Thanks a lot. Im happy about you! Everyone can do Amazon FBA need only Amazon seller account and Amazons approved bank account (they have list on it) but if you dont have then there is a Payoneer credit card with US Payment Service.

    Thanks.. :)

    @ [​IMG]martinovich

    How can you send product from China to US ? is thougt it is not possable to send inventory direct from China to Amazon Warehouse.

    I am also from Europe and sell my products presently only in Germany ( home ) to avoid this problem

    Simple - thats how FBA works. A lot of sellers already doing this and making millions from Amazon - buy low in bulk and sell with 200-400% in profit. Thats why I was impressed about this.

    Thanks

    Hello.

    I will use different promotional methods but most will be social sites like FaceBook, Youtube videos and Pinterest. I have very good pinterst accounts and access to large group boards. My niche is great because I can create many similar campaigns to drive traffic to my site and to the amazon. If these methods will not work then will use - PPC.

    Thanks
