With the coronavirus persisting in the country and around the world, there’s a lot of questions from Amazon business owners on whether creating bundles for the back-to-school season is a worthwhile investment. And if it is, how much do you invest? How can you be cautious about investing, considering the on-going pandemic? What school supplies and products should you invest in? These are all important questions because they are factors that can affect your bottom line as Amazon sellers.

Today, I discuss wholesale bundling for the back-to-school season. I explain why investing in back-to-school products is feasible despite the coronavirus pandemic and reveal the best time to start preparing for the back-to-school season. I share some of the best products to bundle for college, high school, elementary students, and teachers. I also discuss why you should check out retail store patterns and how they merchandise as well as share some steps you can take to prevent money loss in creating bundles for the back-to-school season.
