How can you start selling online?

Today, online sales have become a must for an entrepreneur. Sales can either be performed via a personal site or an existing e-commerce site. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages and can even be complementary.
Having your own website lets you be autonomous. But you have to find traffic, which can be expensive and time-consuming.
Selling on an existing e-commerce site lets you take advantage of the traffic it already has. In addition, the logistics are usually taken care of. This can be a good way to get started. Amazon is an example of an e-commerce site visited by millions of customers.

What products to sell online?

Selling online is all about finding a product that consumers want and that sells easily. You can find trendy products by monitoring trends on social networks, searching for keywords on search engines or looking at best sellers on large e-commerce sites like Amazon. But sometimes you just have to think about your own needs to come up with relevant ideas.
If you want to sell on Amazon, it's useful to consult the best-selling products page for the French store.

Their top sellers generally include:
  • Clothes
  • Computer accessories
  • Watches
  • Pet supplies
  • Products for babies
  • Beauty products
  • Handbags
  • Accessories for cars and motorcycles
Please note that the best sellers page is updated regularly.

Fees on Amazon

There are two registration options for a seller who wants to join Amazon: the individual plan and the professional plan.
The individual plan costs €0.99 (excl. VAT) per item sold plus the referral fee. The professional plan costs €39 (excl. VAT) per month, regardless of the number of items sold, plus the referral fee.
Referral fees are calculated for each item sold. They range between 8% and 15% depending on the product.
There is also the cost of delivering your items which, depending on your choice, can be handled by Amazon or by yourself.

Conclusion

Selling online through major retailers like Amazon can be a great way to get started quickly and gain access to a large customer base.
