What are the Best Product Categories for Amazon FBA Beginners?

What are the Best Product Categories for Beginners?

Those categories are going to be the ones that are not gated. Amazon’s gated categories include Health and Beauty. A non-gated category, but a category, I do not recommend Electronics as there are higher defect rates so it’s easier to get bad reviews.

More on the Gated Categories

The gated categories Beauty and Health. You may want to avoid in general because these products costs more to source, and your top competitor likely has 1000s of reviews. Those with smaller budgets simply can’t compete.

The Best Categories

These are going to the be ungated categories…

  • Pet Supplies
  • Baby
  • Home and Kitchen
  • Sports and Outdoors
  • Patio and Lawn
  •  

    These categories have the simplest product types, and can be easily sourced. You’ll find many products are small as well. Just do the bully match method on a popular brand, you’ll find a product in 45 minutes or less!

    That’s It!

    What Mistakes Should I Watch Out for When Selling on Amazon FBA?

    I get this question all the time and the truth is that there are 3 big mistakes that can be hard to recover from.

    Mistake 1: Not Confirming Samples

    You always want to confirm if you’re samples are high quality.
    If it’s too expensive to ship to your home (for non-US) have an inspection service do it for you.
    In addition, to this have your first shipment sent to your home or to an inspection service like FBAinspection.com

    Mistake 2: Don’t Forget FNSKU’s

    This goes hand-in-hand with mistake number 1.
    Don’t forget every unit of product you send need an FNSKU sticker applied to your supplier or a company like FBAinspection.com.

    Mistake 3: Not being Mindful of Budget and Launch Logic

    Every student needs to watch Amazon Launch Logic video at least twice. You have to understand to reach your desired revenue good for a product you’ll have to meet a happy medium between rank on the search result pages and review count.

    These numbers depend entirely on your competitors. If you competitor’s average review count is 400 you can’t expect to make a great revenue/sales numbers until you reach around that number.

    Mistake 3: Not being Mindful of Budget and Launch Logic

    This may involve multiple launches and shipments of product. Those with smaller budgets or a very expensive product may not be able to reach that review count for months.

    Conclusion

    These are the big 3, if you take note, you’ll be fine.
