    So I was watching this Youtube video on an FBA Amazon seller trying to sell his business and it just doesnt add up. He's making on average 7k a month with barely any advertising. Can it be that the product is so good that it just sells itself? In the video he says that it's not really a "trendy" item but the biggest risk would be Amazon's regulations on their "listing" and what their product is listed as, so I'm assuming they are exploiting the way this product is listed as? They never explained how they do so well, what makes their product so special.

    Here's the video in question.



    Website and it's monthly profits:

    https://empireflippers.com/listing/40438/


    Notes:

    Health and Fitness niche
    Self branded (white labeled)
    1 SKU
    ~$20 per unit (30% profit)
    Sub $100 in fb ads a month
    A bare website with no SEO
    Low competition - 3 direct competitors

    If I was advertising this site, why would I be asking people how it works? If you looked through my post history you can see that I'm a complete noob...

    The problem is that there is no way to answer your original post unless you stump up the 5% refundable deposit to see the site URL

    For a sale like that you really do need to carry out full due diligence and see what support the seller is going to provide to enable you to take it over.
    Any site that actually relies on a 3rd party (Amazon) can be risky, all it takes for one change to their ToS or other agreements and it could kill the business.

    I would want to see the full 2year trading history.

    It is definitely possible. I make over $5k a month off just my very first item I listed on Amazon. I have never done any SEO, advertising or anything. Maybe I was lucky though because my item went to #2 in search within 2 weeks.

    Wow, impressive. Did you do a ton of keyword and market research? Is your item under your own brand name? I'd imagine there's hardly any competition too. I would be grateful for any advice or tips.
