    Hello BHWs,

    I have been here for quite some time now and it seems no one tries to answer my questions or help me achieve my goals of having a source of earning online. I have tried most methods discussed on this forum; from creating micro niche sites, buying articles from BHW members to put on my site, to trying the adult video upload plus crakrev, etc, and yet no breakthrough.

    Maybe I am not doing the right things....but I know I have spent a lot more than some others making money online...I am not that greedy for now...I just want to make some decent income to sustain me and to help me kick start my newfound offline business.

    Please guys, I need your assistance now....I just finished reading every single info on fulfillment by amazon also known as FBA, and unfortunately, I am not based in the US....I live in one of the countries that are not allowed to sell on Amazon...too bad.

    But then, I have been able to partner with my cousin who lives in Texas to help provide all the necessary contact info needed to sell on amazon...and we are ready to kick start, but below are the challenges I am facing now:

    How do I get the approval to sell the items listed on Amazon as "Categories and Products Requiring Approval" since the item I intend to sell fall on this category, and I also feel most items one can sell profitably on the FBA fall on this category.

    Please how do I go about getting the approval because I read the application details and requirements, and they are way too much....they asked for these: Details about your products, including brands and quantities. An estimate of your annual revenue from the products you plan to list in the category. Your contact information and a description of your company. Note: I want to buy from alibaba and resell at amazon, so I don't own a brand or company to describe.

    Also, how do I let the wholesaler I will be buying items from at alibaba know the Amazon fulfillment center address in US to ship my items to, and how will Amazon fulfillment center know the goods shipped to them from my Chinese client belongs to me? Again, I hope Amazon wouldn't mind the Chinese language which most Chinese manufacturers put on their products? Or is there a way to inform the wholesaler not to add any Chinese language on the products?

    Lastly, how will Amazon fulfillment center know that I am the owner of the goods shipped to them by my Chinese partner? Thanks in anticipation of your helpful guides and responses, gracias.

    You would need a Prepping Shipping and Packing Service. This service would receive your merchandise from China, bundle, repack and label it etc. and then ship it to Amazon's warehouses. I am new here. (Despite my joining date in 2012 lol). I don't know if I can publish a link here? PM me for more information if you like.

    In order to adds those products you can give a rough estimate based off of the amount of inventory you plan to bulk order. That usually is suffice to accept the products.

    As for the shipping menthods, you're going to need an entity to act as a hub for your store in order to not risk getting banned. Preferably a real business. Someone that accepts your order and then does any type of sorting/relabeling you require. This is a very good idea if you are out of the country.

    You can add me on Skype if you would like to know more about this type of service: Trundel Great
