Amazon Going Gangbusters!

Amazon Stats Feb 2014

Amazon Sales Feb 2014

Since I’m doing something new, selling on Amazon, I’m feeling more inspired to write in my blog more often. Here’s the latest update from my February sales.

Sales: 538
Profit: $1765.79 (Gross Sales $6902.81)

This profit has jumped a lot in just one month, so I’m pretty excited about that. Especially with the ridiculously small amount of time and effort I put into it. Added to the fact that not even half my products are in stock, I can hardly wait until things are going full steam.

One of the best things I’ve done this month is employ a buying agent in China. I hired her through Odesk and it is working out great. A native chinese speaker is able to negotiate and find much better deals and options than any westerner can. I have already saved a considerable amount of money on sourcing.

Anyway, I’ll keep this short and hopefully be back again next month with even bigger news!

    Hi Neville, I would be interested in hearing how you qualified your buying agent. What was that process like?

      I simply went through Odesk. You have the ability to post a job and set the requirements you specifiy. Things like english level, location and previous ratings etc. You can ask for a cover letter and then interview each candidate or get them to do a trial task first.
