Cross-border e-commerce is currently the most popular industry supported by the state, attracting many individuals and companies who want to do cross-border e-commerce to join. In terms of platform selection, more companies and sellers will give priority to choosing Amazon as the first platform to go overseas. Although Amazon has two delivery models, Star Qihang feels that many individual sellers will start with the self-delivery model due to their limited energy, funds, and experience.
Amazon is a platform that emphasizes products rather than stores, and product selection has become the top priority. What factors should you consider when selecting products for self-shipping sellers?
1. Sales price
For novice sellers, the price of the product should not be too high or too low. Priority should be given to products between 25 and 50 US dollars. The price in this range has a higher audience and is easier to sell.
2. Size and weight
It is not recommended to overweight or oversized products (more than 60cm in length) because overweight and overweight products will increase transportation costs and reduce product profits. It is recommended to start with products that are small in size and weigh between 0 and 2 pounds, and the product profit will be relatively high.
3. The product is relatively simple
For sellers who are just starting out, it is best to make products with a simple structure, there will not be too many components, and it is best to operate without an instruction manual.
It can avoid the risk of late negative reviews, high return rate, and order removal.
4. Avoid dangerous and perishable products
Bows, darts, arrows, currency, toy guns, liquids, powders, knives, flammable, corrosive, toxic, radioactive, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc. will increase the difficulty and cost of delivery.
5. Avoid holiday products
When selecting products, you should try to avoid these seasonal products, because once the season passes, the products will inevitably be unsalable.
