Amazon Marketplace provides an attractive platform for third-party sellers due to its vast customer reach and robust logistical capabilities. But to achieve lasting success, sellers must be able to set the selling price of their products at an optimum level – a level that is attractive to customers, competitive on the marketplace AND, most importantly provides the seller with a decent profit.
Amazon Marketplace is a competitive platform. Sellers must find ways to stand out from the crowd while still maintaining profitability. Understanding how Amazon’s fees and cost structures affect your bottom line is essential to setting your price at the right level to pay all of the costs associated with your product sales, to have enough money to pay for marketing and to make a profit from your endeavours.
