It is a general rule of thumb that Amazon provides its sellers with tons of benefits for creating a powerful business on its platform. The requirements to start an Amazon FBA business are very few. It is the exact reason why more than ten million sellers are successfully running their business on this platform.

Therefore, we, at Jerome Basilio, have decided to bring to our reader’s attention the exact sum of money they will need to launch their business on Amazon.

The first thing that you should keep in mind is that you do not need lots of money to launch your business on Amazon. You can start small; then, when you start getting profit from your business, you can invest more money in your small business.

As a rule, Amazon has four main requirements for starting a business on its platform.

  •   Inventory
  • Tools
  •   Product Images
  •  Training

Let’s go over each of them and try to understand why they are so important. 


Inventory is the most vital aspect when you start selling on Amazon. That’s because it is the basis of your business, which determines the exact sum of money that you have to invest in your business. Here, you have to put all your effort into figuring out the right product niche which is going to be popular on Amazon.

Usually, you should not spend much money on different tools or supplies for starting your business on Amazon. However, there are several ones that you must have. Here is the list of the most necessary items that you have to purchase for your start-up. ·         Computer or a Laptop

Product Images
