Amazon is the big brother in the cross-border e-commerce industry, with Europe and the United States as the main markets.
Shopee is a new platform that has emerged in recent years. It mainly focuses on the Southeast Asian market, and also includes sites such as Taiwan and Brazil.
In fact, the two are not in direct competition, nor is it a relationship in which choosing one must give up the other, on the contrary. They can also be a complementary relationship.
Registration fee, Shopee does not have any registration fee. This is also a period of rapid development of the platform, and a large number of buyers are required to provide him with products. Amazon registers a store, and the rental fee is $40 per month, which is equivalent to saying that you do nothing. , as soon as you open your eyes in the morning, more than a dollar is gone.
Commission ratio, Shopee is free of commission for the first three months, and charges about 6% commission after three months, and the withdrawal fee is 2%.
In the case of the sales commission ratio of different categories of products on Amazon, the minimum commission has different regulations, ranging from 8% to 20%.
Many shopee sellers with source of goods are in the mode of drop-shipping without source of goods. If you have your own sources, you can also make your own sources.
Amazon has three modes: 1. Overseas warehouse: low logistics cost and fast delivery, but difficult to manage, high inventory pressure, and difficult to control. 2. Self-delivery: Reasonable delivery can be carried out to reduce inventory pressure, and the disadvantage will lead to backward ranking and low exposure. 3. FBA: The Amazon system can quickly and automatically complete subsequent shipments, which is fast and improves ranking and exposure. The disadvantage is that the cost is relatively high and inconvenient. You need to check it yourself and spend more time, which is likely to affect the experience and increase the return rate.
In comparison, it can be found that the two are not in conflict, but sellers need to choose according to their own conditions. If you have funds, operating experience, and a team, you can do both platforms and develop through multiple channels.
If you have no resources, no funds, and no team, my personal suggestion is to start with small shrimp skins. The starting point is lower. For grassroots entrepreneurs, cost control and risk control are more friendly.
