Products are easily source from Alieexpress, Taobao & Alibaba. It's quite common to buy from China and sell it over on the US market.

No but i would advise you register the normal individual seller account first, send your shipment in, get Product reviews by asking family or friends in the USA to buy it or you can aproach the US reviewers, after get reviews, upgrade to Profesional account and do PPC ads.

I started with only rm250. But i used to work and study in the uk. So i had quite a good opportunity and time to understand and post the items myself. About 1 year into selling, i started to move into FBA and since then it took off quite easily. I do have my full time job now, but amazon is like a side business. Giving me about 2-5k rm per month. smile.gif)

Any issues of getting the Amazon buy box when first starting off? I heard sometimes it could be difficult.

If i may, if you Brand the product yourself, you practically OWNED the buy box.

Thats the beauty of Private Label, you can source products from China and brand it as your own, its not necessary that the product has to have your Brand labels or stickers.

Hi all, if say, we want to deliver goods from Malaysia to the US Amazon, what is the best air/sea shipping service to use? I tried looking around but they all seem to cater to large corporate companies instead. Thank you

I believe you can buy the 20kg Box from Fedex .

Bear in mind, shipping from Malaysia to USA is expensive, its cheaper to ship from China to Amazon US.

I paid us6/kg by air,within 7 days, received by Amazon centre.

I get samples. The agent will arange the buying,packing,bar coding till the shipping for a fee.

This saves me alot of time. I would then get the samples to be photographed but in my case, i just hire someone from fiverr to do it for a small fee.

Thank you sir =) btw it might sound like a silly question but how do you find these agents? Do you mean agents like ezbuy or individual agents with a more personal contact?

is the research tools like jungle scouts and merhcantwords mandatory?
the agents are based in US or China? meaning the supplier sends directly to FBA via the inspector agents in China? or the items will be sent to the inspector from USA?

do u have to private label it? i understand need to put the barcode right? this will handle by the inspector too?

thanks for your sharing ya

I would personally go for Helium10.

Merchantwords is not a product research tool and the data seems to be obsolete.

The agent is based in China, she will do the purchasing of your product,packing,barcoding and including shipping to Amazon USA. There is a fee for her service which is very reasonalble.

Private Label means youre branding your product,let say example i want to sell garlic press, in my product title i can put

PenangHomes Garlice Press----------my brand is Penanghomes,better to use unique brandnames and DONT use branded names as your brand like Nike,Adidas, later kena sue smile.gif

All products need have have barcodes in my case i use UPC which can be bought cheaply

Start with atleast 100 units, you can try 5 different products with 20 units each.
This to find your NIche product.

Starting capital atleast rm5k ++
