    Hello,

    For the last three days I have been implemting a business plan and after reading 2 dropshipping threads here on blackhatworld I have taken action and in that short space of time made £180 profit .

    I am basically selling on amazon and then inputting customer addresses and making orders on 3 different sites, 2 sites for books and 1 site for cds, dvds and games and I have even created a spreadsheet that automatically updates in realtime and tells me my profit

    In total I have had 43 sales of books and there was 1 sale of a boxset, basically I have been trying out loads of different stuff and I notice that some sellers bulk upload like 600,000 books and adjust the prices accordinly, the way i am getting the products does not let me download a csv file or anything and I think I have sqeezed google searching dry on trying to find a csv file that contains all the information for say 10,000 books so all I would have to do is either create a macro that adusts the prices for me then I could bulk upload to amazon, if anyone could help this would be greatly appreciated

    Also if anyone is selling books on Amazon already successfully do you have any tips on how I could make more than the £180, I was thinking if I can manually add products and upscale from there then I could probably make £3, 000 to 5, 000 a month

    Any help would be appreciated

    thanks. :)

    its not that easy...had to deal with alot customer complaints lol that's the only downside, sometime Amazon hold your payment because you're a new seller.

    I spent few days on this, and feel that it's diffcult. most of the resultS I got from the first page of gg are scam, the rest of them, their products are more expensive than amzon.

    Hi Johnsmithuk,

    I can help with the data collection, manipulation and ideas on
    gaining more customers. I've been a successful seller in the past
    but have been concentrating on other things until recently. I'm
    looking to get back into the buying/selling business again.

    I've not got enough posts to pm but would be interested in discussing
    further and a possible JV.

    Regards

    Paul

    If all your products are displayed on a third party website then it can be scraped and saved to csv. PM me.

    i'm trying to do something similar. I'd like to know how to export a catalog search from Amazon into a CSV file. I had a programmer working on one and he was getting close but then he went MIA.
