There’s a lot of hype about retail arbitrage on Amazon. Blog posts, ads, and websites are out there talking about retail arbitrage to people who want to start an Amazon business. It’s viable for you if you want to set up an online store as a side hustle to fund your Disneyland adventure. What the hype isn’t telling you is that retail arbitrage comes with risks that you need to be mindful of. And if you want a legitimate online business that will get you out of your 9 to 5, you wouldn’t want to invest everything that you have in something as risky.
In today’s episode, we discuss the risks involved in doing retail arbitrage on Amazon and how they can get your seller account suspended. We share the story of an Amazon seller whose merchant account was suspended and illustrate what happens when Amazon suspends your account. We define what an Amazon Plan of Action is and why wholesaling on Amazon is a better alternative. We also reveal some of the reasons Amazon business owners avoid wholesaling and bundling as well as underscore the value of building multiple income streams.
“Retail arbitrage is not sustainable if you want to grow - it’s scary and risky, and it’s not worth it to risk your business.” - Kristen Ostrander
