00:00:00 00:00:04 what's up guys miss me I'll be going
00:00:01 00:00:05 with the honest truth to why I quit
00:00:04 00:00:08 selling on eBay
00:00:05 00:00:09 to sell on Amazon FBA so if you don't
00:00:08 00:00:12 know me already my name is Cara Maxwell
00:00:09 00:00:14 I'm a 17 year old entrepreneur and I go
00:00:12 00:00:15 by the nickname of the high school
00:00:14 00:00:17 hustler and if you're trying to create
00:00:15 00:00:19 an online business and make money while
00:00:17 00:00:20 you sleep the nests that she refused to
00:00:19 00:00:22 go ahead and hit that subscribe button
00:00:20 00:00:25 well this a big great video is debating
00:00:22 00:00:28 the pros and cons to selling on eBay and
00:00:25 00:00:30 Amazon FBA so let's get right into it
00:00:28 00:00:32 you'll see that don't know eBay it's a
00:00:30 00:00:34 giant worldwide marketplace to where you
00:00:32 00:00:37 can actually add the seller list your
00:00:34 00:00:39 item as a Buy Now price or an auction
00:00:37 00:00:41 style listing now on to Amazon FBA and
00:00:39 00:00:43 feels a little bit more complicated but
00:00:41 00:00:45 it's a really really convenient and
00:00:43 00:00:48 efficient business model being the FBA
00:00:45 00:00:49 stands for fulfillment by Amazon so
00:00:48 00:00:51 where you can actually send your
00:00:49 00:00:54 physical inventory to an Amazon
00:00:51 00:00:56 warehouse will then be stored until it
00:00:54 00:00:58 sells on Amazon and the cool part is
00:00:56 00:01:01 once actually sell on Amazon Amazon
00:00:58 00:01:03 Fulfillment will then actually pick pack
00:01:01 00:01:05 and ship that product to the customer so
00:01:03 00:01:07 either way through two great platforms
00:01:05 00:01:10 and I'm gonna go over exactly why I
00:01:07 00:01:13 actually quit eating to sell on Amazon
00:01:10 00:01:15 oh why exactly did I actually quit eBay
00:01:13 00:01:17 well to give you a little background
00:01:15 00:01:20 about me I started eBay at age of 13
00:01:17 00:01:22 when I sold my first item since then I
00:01:20 00:01:24 was hooked and I sold on eBay for about
00:01:22 00:01:27 two years in the process was really fun
00:01:24 00:01:29 at the beginning and as I went on the
00:01:27 00:01:31 process just really got actually pretty
00:01:29 00:01:33 laborious because the process is
00:01:31 00:01:35 basically just sourcing products and
00:01:33 00:01:37 after you sourcing them out the listed
00:01:35 00:01:40 and when listing the product you have to
00:01:37 00:01:42 then create a title a description some
00:01:40 00:01:44 bullet points and take pictures as well
00:01:42 00:01:46 so it was just really time consuming and
00:01:44 00:01:48 the process was just getting harder and
00:01:46 00:01:50 harder in the margins were what I wanted
00:01:48 00:01:52 and where what they were when I was a
00:01:50 00:01:54 lot younger and so I was looking into
00:01:52 00:01:56 other platforms that I could possibly
00:01:54 00:01:58 try to sell on and I was looking through
00:01:56 00:01:59 Google looking through Amazon and
00:01:58 00:02:02 there's this new platform that was
00:01:59 00:02:04 trending Amazon FBA and just like when I
00:02:02 00:02:06 went over earlier basically Amazon just
00:02:04 00:02:08 doing all the fulfillment for you and
00:02:06 00:02:10 you can sell on the platform so that was
00:02:08 00:02:11 a really really cool concept so
00:02:10 00:02:13 basically I just
00:02:11 00:02:16 and just started sourcing sourcing and
00:02:13 00:02:18 keep sending products up and just kind
00:02:16 00:02:20 of getting just understand the system a
00:02:18 00:02:24 lot more and at that time I was juggling
00:02:20 00:02:25 eBay and Amazon FBA at the same time and
00:02:24 00:02:27 this is actually going into fourth
00:02:25 00:02:29 quarter which is the last three months
00:02:27 00:02:31 of the year which when it comes to
00:02:29 00:02:34 e-commerce is the best time of the year
00:02:31 00:02:37 to start selling basically it is a three
00:02:34 00:02:39 month Christmas for e-commerce sellers
00:02:37 00:02:41 because sales just like double and
00:02:39 00:02:43 triple it's crazy in so I had a good
00:02:41 00:02:44 enough amount of products on Amazon FBA
00:02:43 00:02:46 and a good amount of products on eBay
00:02:44 00:02:48 and I'm just kind of seeing how well
00:02:46 00:02:50 they sold and it was actually pretty
00:02:48 00:02:53 crazy like I was selling out of my
00:02:50 00:02:54 Amazon FBA products and they're just fly
00:02:53 00:02:56 off the shelves and I couldn't even get
00:02:54 00:02:58 keep them in stok and on eBay that
00:02:56 00:03:01 sales were someone coming in every time
00:02:58 00:03:03 I sold I'd have to go and prep them and
00:03:01 00:03:05 ship them they keep keep making
00:03:03 00:03:06 different listings on Amazon's boom boom
00:03:05 00:03:08 just scanning it in sending the Amazon
00:03:06 00:03:10 hundreds and hundreds of items at a time
00:03:08 00:03:12 and they were selling and Amazon was
00:03:10 00:03:14 doing all the fulfillment for me so that
00:03:12 00:03:18 took into a big part of me finally
00:03:14 00:03:21 making these stage of moving from eBay
00:03:18 00:03:23 to Amazon FBA full time actually
00:03:21 00:03:24 basically eliminating eBay and just put
00:03:23 00:03:26 this out there
00:03:24 00:03:28 eBay is a really great platform I just
00:03:26 00:03:30 personally think that Amazon FBA is
00:03:28 00:03:32 better for me and for something it's
00:03:30 00:03:33 more conveniently still being in a high
00:03:32 00:03:35 school having school for about eight
00:03:33 00:03:37 hours a day it's a lot more convenient
00:03:35 00:03:40 for me to just do Amazon FBA instead of
00:03:37 00:03:42 eBay so let's get into exactly how you
00:03:40 00:03:44 can actually make money on bulk platform
00:03:42 00:03:46 I actually picked up the business model
00:03:44 00:03:48 known as private label and it's what I
00:03:46 00:03:50 do full-time and specialize in as of the
00:03:48 00:03:52 moment and with private label for those
00:03:50 00:03:54 of you that don't know what exactly the
00:03:52 00:03:56 business model is it is basically the
00:03:54 00:03:58 ordering of a generic product from
00:03:56 00:04:00 overseas to then brand that generic
00:03:58 00:04:03 product with your company company's logo
00:04:00 00:04:05 or company's name to then refill about
00:04:03 00:04:07 an Amazon obviously for a higher price
00:04:05 00:04:09 and to profit and it's a pretty
00:04:07 00:04:11 efficient business model because just
00:04:09 00:04:13 from one product you can make any amount
00:04:11 00:04:15 of money you don't have to keep creating
00:04:13 00:04:17 listings for instance about to sell this
00:04:15 00:04:18 item on eBay I have to keep creating the
00:04:17 00:04:20 listings for it and selling it every
00:04:18 00:04:22 time it's sold I have to then go and
00:04:20 00:04:24 pick pack and ship it to the customer
00:04:22 00:04:26 which is really inconvenient and I mean
00:04:24 00:04:28 at school I can make money at while
00:04:26 00:04:30 sleeping not to make money just because
00:04:28 00:04:32 wit not only with the private label
00:04:30 00:04:35 business model but with Amazon FBA
00:04:32 00:04:37 platform they do all the fulfillment for
00:04:35 00:04:39 you so you can just sit back and they do
00:04:37 00:04:40 everything for you from the shipping to
00:04:39 00:04:42 the processing you just have to make
00:04:40 00:04:45 sure your I themselves priced
00:04:42 00:04:47 competitively and obviously want to sell
00:04:45 00:04:50 Amazon what is a fulfillment for you so
00:04:47 00:04:53 guys the honest truth is that Amazon FBA
00:04:50 00:04:55 is a lot easier than eBay just the whole
00:04:53 00:04:58 process Amazon FBA is so much less
00:04:55 00:04:59 laborious and the potential customers
00:04:58 00:05:01 and the potential sales you're going to
00:04:59 00:05:03 get on Amazon FBA or so much more than
00:05:01 00:05:05 eBay and just depending on your
00:05:03 00:05:07 convenience level and amount of time you
00:05:05 00:05:09 have to put into your business Amazon
00:05:07 00:05:12 FBA can be so much easier and so much
00:05:09 00:05:14 easier to scale as well think about it
00:05:12 00:05:17 if you're a sell 50 items on eBay and 50
00:05:14 00:05:19 items on Amazon FBA you don't have to
00:05:17 00:05:22 touch those 50 items that just sold on
00:05:19 00:05:23 Amazon FBA because guess what Amazon is
00:05:22 00:05:25 doing all the fulfillment for you
00:05:23 00:05:26 they're shipping to the customer doing
00:05:25 00:05:29 with customer service boom you just
00:05:26 00:05:31 receive a check every two weeks now onto
00:05:29 00:05:33 eBay you just sold 50 items wherever you
00:05:31 00:05:35 go you have to go and pick pack and ship
00:05:33 00:05:37 all those on to the customer create a
00:05:35 00:05:39 shipping label or drop them off at the
00:05:37 00:05:41 post office just a huge inconvenience
00:05:39 00:05:43 and especially if you know other stuff
00:05:41 00:05:45 like if you're trying to maybe juggle
00:05:43 00:05:47 another job or just jump on another
00:05:45 00:05:50 extracurricular activity that takes up a
00:05:47 00:05:51 lot of time in your day Amazon FBA is
00:05:50 00:05:53 going to be the platform for you okay
00:05:51 00:05:56 and just to put this out there I'm not
00:05:53 00:05:59 selling not saying don't sell on eBay
00:05:56 00:06:00 eBay and Amazon FBA are both great
00:05:59 00:06:01 platforms asan
00:06:00 00:06:03 I'll hide the recommend selling on both
00:06:01 00:06:07 and seeing which one you like the best
00:06:03 00:06:09 but for me for my business model and my
00:06:07 00:06:12 just level time I have to put into it
00:06:09 00:06:13 Amazon FBA is the business for me so
00:06:12 00:06:16 guys once again the point of this video
00:06:13 00:06:18 wasn't just to make you avoid selling on
00:06:16 00:06:21 eBay or stop selling on eBay today it's
00:06:18 00:06:23 just a heads up that Amazon FBA is a
00:06:21 00:06:24 really great platform and it's super
00:06:23 00:06:26 automated and when it comes to my
00:06:24 00:06:28 personal opinion I'm going to go with
00:06:26 00:06:31 Amazon FBA over eBay so that's it for
