This program is called Amazon Associates and is a mainly referral program. Within this Amazon affiliate program, a commission is paid to referring websites. This means that there’s a link on your website that sends shoppers to Amazon, you’ll get your percentage of the sale if that customers purchase something during the next 24 hours. For this program, Amazon has established fixed standard program fees. For example, it’s 10% for luxury beauty and Amazon coins, 5.50% for outdoors, tools, and so on. Pay attention to your conversion rate! It is a tool that will identify the number of people who click on the affiliate links and purchase something from the promoted website.

What Do You Know About Retail Arbitrage?

This is when sellers go to retail stores, find and purchase the products they want to sell, and list them on the platform.

However, this type of business may be sometimes difficult to operate: you face harsh competition, sometimes you unintentionally sell counterfeits and so forth… In life, there’s no risk zero, especially when we talk about retail arbitrage, what can we say?

Or Maybe Online Arbitrage?

If you look closer you’ll understand that retail and online arbitrage are practically the same! In the first case, you go to the store, buy the products yourself, and only then list and sell them on Amazon. In the second case, you do the same thing, only this time on online platforms. For example, you order products from eBay or Alibaba, and sell them on Amazon! Make sure you know about the risks! You’ll face competition, because there’s nothing more dangerous than sellers who want to win you!
