How to Start a Dropshipping Business on Amazon

Share this post

If you’re looking for a compelling investment opportunity, look no further than partnering with the online shopping giant that is Amazon. More and more of us are getting regular shipments of items that we once would visit a store to purchase. Amazon ships everything, from laundry detergent to that rare hobby item that you can’t seem to find anywhere. Learning how to start a dropshipping business on Amazon can be a lucrative passive income opportunity.

Starting a dropshipping business is a great way to earn hands-free income in an industry that is only growing by the day. Simply put, when a customer orders an item from your store, you receive the order and payment. You then contact your supplier and have the item shipped directly from the supplier to the customer’s doorstep. Rather than holding onto inventory, you simply purchase merchandise when a customer makes an order. You don’t have to worry about keeping stock or packaging since it is all done at the supplier. 

While it is relatively easy to start your own dropshipping business on Amazon, it can be tricky to know what products to choose, how to set up the store, and how to make it profitable. NextGen Strategic Investments not only knows how to play the Amazon store game, but we also have the expertise to help guide you through the process. Other investors have trusted NextGen with their Amazon stores and are now reaping the benefits. Why not you? 

Learn more about how to start a dropshipping business on Amazon with these tips.

Set Up an Amazon Seller Account

The first step to dropshipping on Amazon is to set up an Amazon seller account. This type of account is different from your regular Amazon account as your store gets connected to the website’s seller side. Amazon gives you a few choices to choose from when it comes to setting up a dropshipping store. You can choose to sell as an individual or a professional

Individual vs. Professional Amazon Account

The platform recommends an individual account for those interested in selling 40 items or less per month in their Amazon store. However, it’s best for those using a dropshipping business for investment purposes to choose a professional account. This account allows your store to sell 40 items or more per month. The professional option has a monthly subscription fee, but it will enable you to have more access and freedom to run your store the way you want.

Find the Perfect Product

As an Amazon seller, it can be hard to find the perfect product to bring a profit. Sellers must find a product that is in high demand but has low competition, which can be tricky. Combine that with finding a quality 3rd party wholesaler or manufacturer, and you could spend months trying to find a product that maximizes your profits.

Find a Supplier

You may have found the perfect product to sell online, but how will you get it to your customers’ doors?
