    Hi guys, I recently started my woocommerce store in the gaming niche. I was wondering if its possible to sell digital games from Amazon on your store.

    This is how I want it to go:-
    1) people purchase game form your store
    2) you place an order from Amazon
    3) Amazon sends you download code
    4) you forward it to the customer under your brand

    Its just an idea but I don't know if its practical.

    I prefer not to put affiliate links since I will lose branding and commission would be less.
    Did anyone try this method? is there a better method? Can it be automated?

    It won’t work. People would prefer purchasing from Amazon, because it’s cheaper and more trustworthy. My 2 cents

    Yeah. If you can put a twist on it.

    What some people do is sell nudes or you know those kind of pictures and sell them to horny dudes for a price, so why not.

    If you have a good traffic source, can totally be automated.

    It will work.
    Lot's of people buy things outside of amazon, sold AV's for crypto until my site was taken down..
    Just enable crypto gateway and lots of people will opt in.

    Yes, there's a lot of software dropshipping. Try to make your offering more unique in some way and you'll definitely get sales.

    Technically you could, but there won't be any repeat customers once they see the shipment came from amazon and that you actually charged a markup. Might end up in refunds and returns too which you will ned up scheduling with amazon

    It could work but I would only accept cryptocurrency as I can already picture all of the chargebacks if you decide to use paypal.

    I don't think your method is going to work out for you. There are sites as allkey where big sites priches get compared. You will almost amazon as most expensive. And then you still need get your profits on top.
    People like cheap. You would need to buy in keys, like 1000 at a time. Only way i see you getting decent cash here if. For example you already know fifa 19 is coming out. So you make fifa 19 page on FB, IG etc.
    Get as many followers and people who like it etc. Post weekly updates what you can find out about it. As soon you can preorder. You can then try to get sales

    Ya dennisvd, I did thought about it. I was thinking to sell luxury products which has high perceived value so that price rise will be justified.

    And i said that about ebay germany because outside there paypal seller protection isn't for you. You will lose all disputes. Know people in this bussines(not my self) and get a bunch of disputes etc and can't be nothing done about.

    Not saying it wouldn't work but think that you are going head to head with very well known giants. How would you promote this? FB ads?
    If Carrefour can sell you a game for 25% more than that you could get it from steam, then I guess it "could work". Maybe try crypto? I know people that would rather use their crypto than selling it for dollars and then buying stuff

    sure it can work but only if your customers are idiots.
    try to create a trustable brand with your own products.
    with all the methods you can earn a few bucks but seriously it is the same as if you are getting an ordinary job.
