There 's more than one way you can make money selling on Amazon. I 'm going to tell you about the main ones in this article.

First of all, Amazon Marketplace. Marketplace offers you an opportunity to sell products (not just books but a whole range of things) on the exact same …show more content…

It costs 86p plus a referral fee for each sale. You are also restricted to the product categories you can sell in. However, the advantage is that it costs virtually nothing to start and there are no ongoing charges if, initially, you don 't sell very much.

Selling 'a lot ' is for professional sellers who expect to sell more than 35 items a month. You pay a 28.75 monthly fixed fee and a referral fee. You can sell in all the Amazon product categories.

It isn 't always viable to list low price, low volume products as a 'sell a little ' seller. To do that you need to be a 'sell a lot ' seller! However, I 'd recommend you take the 'selling a little ' route to start out with. You can always upgrade later.

Choose your option, then fill in the online form.

Pro Merchant Sellers

Once you are selling 'a lot ' you will probably also want to become what Amazon call a Pro Merchant Seller. Pro Merchants have access to volume selling and bulk listing tools. There is a web interface that allows you to more easily manage your product descriptions, inventory and orders. You will also be able to export and import information to and from your account.

Once you get up and running the selling a lot/Pro Merchant option will work out much cheaper and, importantly, will allow you to work on tighter margins and make money from sales that those who sell just a little can 't.
