Finding Suppliers to Sell on Amazon - An Alternative Approach to Amazon Private Labeling

Finding Suppliers to Sell on Amazon - An Alternative Approach to Amazon Private Labeling

The private labeling hype machine has been running hot for a couple of years now.

Just find a product that’s already selling well on Amazon. Then source a generic version from China. Slap a logo on it, and sell it using Amazon FBA. Boom! Riches are yours. Now just rinse and repeat.

Even these fly-by-night “brand names” bring certain expectations of quality and support, and many of them are just not living up to it.

So here’s the Amazon product sourcing strategy that I use. It doesn’t depend on importing, you don’t need to find perfect products, and I’ve made it hard to compete against. For me, it’s been hugely successful.
