Learning how to make money selling amazon products is not as hard as you think. I’m sure you’re biggest concerns are things like:

  • How to get access to the products?
  • Where would you store the products?
  • How would handle shipping each product?
  • How would you handle questions or returns for the products?

You see, these are questions you would ask if you had physical access to each product.

But what if I told you there was a way to sell amazon products without having to actually carry any of the products?

Would that be something that peaked your interest?

Well if you’ve ever heard of affiliate marketing, then you would know that selling products you don’t own is more than possible.

In this article, I will go over how you can start your own business selling amazon products online.

Why Sell Amazon Products?

Well let’s be honest, Amazon pretty much sells everything.

They started off as a place to buy books. But now they are the place to get almost whatever you need from whichever category that’s out there.

Not only that, but they have that trust factor.


People know that when they shop on an amazon site, they are dealing with a highly reputable company.

You expect to get your items on time and quick, especially if you are a prime member.

And if for whatever reason you need a refund for an item, amazon makes the process very simple. Also, amazon is a conversion machine.

When people browse the site, amazon does a great job at converting them into buyers.

So if you’re someone that is selling, you have a good chance at making some money with amazon. Of course this all depends on the type of product your selling.

How To Sell Amazon Products You Don’t Own

Earlier I mentioned how you can sell amazon products without actually owning them. The way this is done is with affiliate marketing.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term, affiliate marketing is the process in which you are given permission to promote products and services of other companies.

Companies provide you with affiliate links, and if someone clicks on one of your links and makes a purchase, you receive a commission.

Well amazon has there own affiliate marketing program in which I will go into more detail later.

Their program allows you to promote any product that is listed within amazon. So no need to hold or ship any of the products that you’re able to sell.

All that is the responsibility of the owner of said product.

Affiliate marketing is a huge business, and is most attractive to those just getting started with making money online.

How To Get Started

Choose A Niche

That fact that Amazon pretty much sells everything under the sun, it’s important to make sure you find a niche.

Choosing a niche is so important because you want to focus on becoming an expert.

You want to be the person everyone looks to when seeking information. Also, choosing a niche will make it easier to select products to promote.

When choosing a niche, think about what you’re passionate about, and start with that.

Like when I started my first website, I chose health and fitness as a niche to get into because it was something I was very passionate about.

But as we know, health and fitness is a pretty broad industry. So I narrowed it down to weight loss. 

Now if you wanted to narrow it down even more, you could. But I decided to go with weight loss because I knew there was a very strong demand for it.

Build A Website

If you plan on being successful selling amazon products online, then you will need a website.

The reason why this is so important is that more and more transactions are being done using online methods.

Whether it be using a computer or through mobile devices, having a website allows online users a place to go and make purchases.

Also, with over 3.2 billion internet users that continues to grow each year, the opportunity has never been better.

You’ll also learn that by having a website, you can scale your online business and do more than just promote amazon products.

Apply To Become An Amazon Associate

After you’ve built your website, it’s time to now apply to become an amazon associate.

This allows you to get access to amazon affiliate links and start promoting products.

Once you sign up for a free account, you can then place links on your site and start earning commissions.

Of course you still need to create content that people will consume on your site, but we will get to that topic very soon.

For now, create an account, and you will have access to links that allow you to promote any product amazon has to offer.

Research Products To Promote

Once you’re approved to become an amazon associate, you can now start searching for products.

Remember, your search will depend a lot on the niche you’ve chosen. So if you chose health and fitness, you will be searching for products in that category.

Also, when doing your research on which products to promote, you want to look for high commission products.

Amazon’s affiliate program offers up to 10% in commissions for every product that you sell.

Because the commissions aren’t that high compared to other affiliate programs, it’s important to focus on higher commission categories.

Depending on the category of the product, amazon has a fixed commission price.

So not only do you want to choose high category products, but you also want to choose a high priced item.

Create Content To Attract Visitors

Don’t think just because you got some links on your site, all of a sudden the cash will start rolling in.

Making money online is a process and takes quite a bit of time and effort. That’s because in order to make money, you need people visiting your site.

The same goes for brick and mortar businesses. In order for them to make money, they need people visiting their store.

So how do you go about getting traffic to your site? Well there are two ways.

  • Free Traffic
  • Paid Traffic

More than likely you are new to making money online, so free traffic will probably be your best option.

You get free traffic by getting ranked high within the search engines like Google, Bing, or Yahoo.

But in order to get ranked, you need to create high value content on your site. Search engines love sites that are able to create content that helps online users. 

If you can create content in the form of text, video, or anything else others might feel may help them, Google will rank you. 

Place Affiliate Links And Earn A Commission

Once you start creating content for your site, you want to make sure you start placing your amazon affiliate links within it.

Now don’t just place them any and everywhere you see fit.

You want to make sure you place the links in articles that are relevant to what you’re promoting. One of the best types of content to create are product reviews.

This is content that people are looking for to make a purchase.

So if someone was looking for more info on a watch they were looking to buy, they would google search the “product” followed by “review.”

Once you’ve created the “product review,” you then want to place your affiliate links within the review.

If someone happens to click on it and make a purchase, you receive a commission.

The Power Of Affiliate Marketing

As you can see, there is a lot of money that is made with affiliate marketing.

This type of business is great for anyone that is just getting started with making money online.

The fact that you can promote and sell products without carrying any of them, makes it very tempting to try.

Remember, companies pay a lot of money to get their products in front of customers.

Just look at the TV networks that pay billions of dollars to sports franchise to broadcast their games.

If you can create enough of a following, there are so many ways including affiliate marketing, in which companies are willing to compensate you.

But in order to be successful in the online marketing game, training is key.
