If you already know “How to start my mink eyelashes business online?“, you need to know how to sell mink lashes online on Amazon and Etsy.
First of all, Amazon for sell mink lashes&sunglasses online
Amazon is the world’s largest online purchasing platform, it has 3 advantages:
- 300+ million active customer accounts in 180+ countries
- 150+ million Prime members worldwide
- $3.5+ billion sales by third-party Selling Partners during Prime Day 2020
Amazon offers two sales plans (called “personal” and “professional”, but you can think of them as standard and premium plans) that can provide you with the flexibility to sell one item or thousands of items. Before you start registering, please decide which plan is more suitable for your business.
The individual plan’s single sales fee is US$0.99, while sellers using the Professional plan pay US$39.99 a month, no matter how many items they sell. If you sell more than 40 items a month, the “professional” option makes sense. No matter which plan you choose, you don’t have to worry about making the wrong choice-you can change the plan at any time. In both cases, additional sales expenses need to be paid.
If you are just starting your eyelash business for sell mink lashes&sunglasses online, I suggest you choose to become a “personal” seller, which means you don’t have to invest too much in the beginning. When your sales increase, you can become a “professional” seller at any time.
Please note that if you do not want your profits to decrease, please remember to add the fees charged by Amazon to the price of mink lashes. If you don’t do this, your business will be difficult to grow.
What materials do I need to prepare to register as an Amazon seller?
- In order to complete your registration, make sure you have access to:
- Bank account number and bank routing number
- Chargeable credit card
- Government issued national ID
- Tax information
- Phone number
If you are ready, you can go directly to the “Amazon Seller Page“.
How to list products in sell mink lashes online?
To sell products on Amazon, you must first create a product list. Match an existing listing (if someone else already sells the same product on Amazon), or create a new listing (if you are the first or only seller).
Sellers with professional seller accounts can choose to use a third-party system to list their products in bulk through bulk upload or inventory management, while a single seller lists one product at a time. This has no effect, we don’t need to upload a lot of products in the first place.
In most cases, products must have a Global Trade Article Number (GTIN), such as UPC, ISBN or EAN. Amazon uses these product IDs to identify the exact product you want to sell. If it matches the list, you don’t need to provide the product ID because the product ID already exists. If you want to add new products from Amazon, you may need to purchase UPC codes or apply for an exemption.
You can read more “About the Eyelash Business” to learn how to be gracious with UPC code exemption. Or if you are selling Giovanni Lashes products, we can provide you with UPC codes for free.
In addition to the product ID, the following are some important information in each product list:
- Inventory unit
- product name
- Product description and key points
- Product Image
- Search terms and related keywords
