Comparison of Amazon Private Label vs Arbitrage

March 20, 2021 by Andrew Minalto

What’s the Better Amazon Ecommerce model in 2021: Private Label or Arbitrage? The last year has been a real struggle for many but has also been a blessing in disguise for a lot of people. One thing it’s shown everyone is how perilous having one income stream is – no matter how many times they say “you’re part of the family” a company won’t hesitate to get rid of you if and when they need to. Job losses and increasing job insecurity have created a real back-against-the-wall moment and pushed so many to finally start that online business they’ve been Read More…

Best Bank Accounts for Amazon FBA Sellers

March 9, 2021 by Andrew Minalto - 6 Comments

There are a few questions I always get asked by newbie Amazon FBA sellers and one of them is, “Do I need a business account or can I simply use my own normal personal account?” And my answer is always the same – while you don’t technically need one, it’s not an Amazon requirement for example and they’re happy to pay into personal accounts*, I always suggest getting a dedicated account solely for Amazon FBA business. And there are a few good reasons for this: It makes tracking your FBA business expenses and income so much easier, which also means: Read More…

2021 Tax Deadline Changed for Amazon FBA Sellers. Avoid Fines!

February 23, 2021 by Andrew Minalto

Well, the first month of the year is over and it’s been a great start to 2021 for my Amazon FBA business, with the December to January drop off being a lot less than I had expected.   That could be the result of more lockdown-induced spending but either way, I’m not complaining and it’s a great start to my 2021 targets. Amazon FBA continues to be a profitable, growing and scaleable way to generate profits as an online entrepreneur. Yes, some aspects of the ever-increasing Amazon FBA competition create new challenges, but for those of us who know how Read More…

Rising Shipping Costs: What’s an Amazon FBA Seller to do?

February 20, 2021 by Andrew Minalto - 2 Comments

As if COVID-19 hadn’t caused enough shipping problems for Amazon FBA sellers importing from China, we now have to deal with the Brexit disaster and even some snowstorms to top it all off! Any Amazon FBA seller who imports from China knows that 2020 saw some HUGE increases in shipping rates, with costs increasing by up to ten times. Typically, shipping a 40ft container would’ve cost between $1,500-$2,000 but we’re now seeing ocean freight rates of $10,000-$15,000 for the same 40ft container. And that’s not all, my fellow Amazon FBAers! Consider you pay import VAT on the total amount of Read More…

23,223 UNITS on Amazon UK in a MONTH without spending a DIME on PPC!

December 16, 2020 by Andrew Minalto - 6 Comments

Welcome back!

I know that everyone is already in the Christmas mood, but I still wanted to get this update out to you and share my results on how my Amazon FBA business did in November.

Yes, this Christmas will be different, but I can still feel the Christmas spirit in the air, and I will still enjoy this holiday with my family in the best possible way.

And those with kids will know that they expect the “whole thing”, regardless of whether there’s a global pandemic happening or not. In fact, I don’t think kids worry about all this drama at all. They are so quick to adjust and simply look for enjoyment in the simple things. At least, that’s what my kids do.

I did all my Christmas shopping online this year. On Amazon. I spent no more than an hour ordering all of the gifts (well, not all) that my kids put in their letters to Santa. What’s interesting is that some of the items looked very promising from a business perspective, too! 🙂

WARNING: DO NOT use Jungle Scout for Amazon research!

December 10, 2020 by Andrew Minalto - 2 Comments

Welcome back!

Yes, the title of this post is rather dramatic, but there’s a reason for that: you really SHOULDN’T use Jungle Scout for your Amazon research.

At least not in the way that 99% of the self-proclaimed “Amazon experts” on YouTube recommend you do.

I really want to clear the air and show you exactly why you can’t blindly trust Jungle Scout numbers—or any other Amazon research software for that matter!

The main reason I wanted to write about this is that every week, I receive messages from people asking me “does this look like a good product?” Inevitably, they will have attached a Jungle Scout Chrome tool screenshot, often with the actual product names blurred out so all I can see are some numbers.

How can you possibly tell if a product has potential or not just by looking at the Jungle Scout numbers?

You can’t.

WHAT trademark CLASS to use for your Amazon FBA business?!

December 7, 2020 by Andrew Minalto

Welcome back!

It’s time to resume our Questions & Answers blog post series! I really hate when so many good questions/topics get buried in the long comments threads, so starting from now, I will try to regularly publish the best questions and answers in a separate blog post.

In today’s post, we’re talking about trademarks. I have previously talked about the best time to register a trademark for your Amazon business, as well as the common trademark scams and pitfalls people encounter during the trademark registration process.

But today, I want to talk specifically about trademark CLASSES and what you, as an Amazon seller, need to know about them.
