When it comes to Amazon wholesaling, I get a lot of ‘buts’ and ‘what ifs’ from Amazon sellers: “I want to wholesale, but I won’t be able to afford it,” or “What if I don’t find vendors?” These worries and doubts are usually the results of myths about wholesaling, yet it’s the most legitimate thing that could help you succeed. With the right mindset and knowledge, you can wholesale on Amazon and scale your online business.

Today, I debunk some of the myths and fears that stop E-commerce sellers from wholesaling on Amazon. I explain why you can afford to start wholesale on Amazon and reveal some ways you can cut costs when wholesaling. I discuss how you can find wholesale distributors and vendors through research and illustrate how leveraging prep centers can help you with product shipment. I also reveal the two ways to find profitable items to sell and underscore the benefits of creating product bundles on Amazon.
