Selling to Amazon Through Vendor Central or Vendor Express: Pros and Cons
This post is by Kiri Masters, CEO and co-founder of Bobsled Marketing, a New York City-based digital marketing agency that helps brands grow their revenue on Amazon. Bobsled’s comprehensive launch and optimization process has been used for hundreds of products across Amazon’s North American and European markets.
With over 688,000 unique brands selling on Amazon, competition is rife. It can be difficult for sellers to find an edge through the third-party Seller Central program. The good news is that brands have the option of developing a wholesale relationship with Amazon through their Vendor programs.
Amazon’s wholesale Vendor programs have been getting a lot of attention recently. As a Vendor, your products are sold under the trusted Amazon brand. In addition, Amazon will buy and store your inventory, taking care of shipping, pricing, customer service and even returns.
While there is a lot of information and training available out there for brands who are selling on the Amazon marketplace, there is a severe lack of information for brands who are currently selling (or planning to sell) wholesale on the Vendor platform, using either Vendor Central or Vendor Express.
Selling on Walmart Marketplace: is it Really Worth the Effort?
Walmart marketplace? Like the wild west. Running your own webstore? Like raising a baby pig. Matthew Ferguson explains.
Hi Matt! I recently got approved to sell on Walmart which I know is special to receive, but I’m not sure it’s worth my time to prioritize this. I was going to focus on a new website originally. Is it worth listing on Walmart? I sell mostly homewares and bedding supplies. It’s a vague question, sorry! I would appreciate complete honesty.
