I really hope the title of this post grabbed your attention, as it should have! Seriously – this is one of the quickest and easiest ways to add extra profit to the items you’re already selling on Amazon, but still for some reason very few people do this.
Today I want to talk about how you can make extra profit without needing to sell any new items, just by offering gift wrapping services to your customers. Let’s get to it!
Now first things first – if you use Amazon’s FBA service to fulfil your orders, then you’re already offering gift wrapping to your customers as Amazon offer this service as an optional extra on most items they sell (there are a few exceptions – if the size or shape of the item makes it very difficult to gift wrap, then Amazon don’t offer it).
But what a lot of sellers don’t seem to know is, even if you store and ship your items yourself, you can still offer gift wrapping.
You will however need an Amazon PRO account to set up gift wrapping options and it’s NOT available at all for basic accounts. I’ll show you how to set this up a bit later on, but for now I want to cover the wrapping process itself.
It’s honestly incredibly easy to do and with just a little time and practice, you’ll quickly become a gift wrapping pro!
I like to use Amazon’s service as a general basis/guideline of what to provide:
As you can see from the picture, Amazon’s gift wrapping service includes three different things:
- The gift wrap, box or bag (this will depend on the item)
- A decorative ribbon
- A printed card with a gift message on the top of the package
Now the main question when you’re deciding on the gift wrapping service to offer is whether to go for wrapping paper or gift boxes? [Read more…]
