Problems faced by small and medium sellers on Amazon
It is not all rainbows and butterflies when it comes to selling on Amazon
Starting your own online selling business has been made easy with the help of numerous online selling platforms.
When it comes to consumer items and essential goods, Amazon has been a trusted partner by entrepreneurs since the early 2000s after it eclipsed eBay’s influence in the eCommerce industry.
Since the increase of Amazon’s popularity and dominance in the eCommerce industry, it has become a top destination for online sellers. Apart from its influence, sellers are inclined to sell their products on Amazon, either via FBA or FBM programs, because of the potential sales.
In 2021 a survey revealed that the majority of Amazon sellers make monthly sales of at least $1,000 to $3000.
For super-sellers, it is estimated that their annual sales could even reach up to $3 million. However, similar to other business ventures, it is not all rainbows and butterflies when it comes to selling on Amazon.
