Unless you do relatively high quality products, otherwise you can only fall into the endless price war inside, when selecting products, if the profit margin does not meet our requirements do not consider.

Amazon cost components

Before talking about profit accounting, you need to popularize a point of Amazon distribution model.Amazon profit calculation
Amazon has FBA and FBM two delivery modes:


Amazon FBA that is, Amazon warehouse delivery, refers to Amazon sellers will be their own product goods, advance stocking to the Amazon overseas warehouse, the buyer placed an order Amazon is responsible for the direct delivery of goods in the Amazon warehouse to the customer.

FBM means self-shipping, which means that after a customer places an order, the seller sends the goods directly to the customer through international logistics.

So the accounting profit of these two kinds of Amazon logistics methods are also different.

How to do Amazon profit calculation?

FBA cost structure:

Product purchase cost (gift) (packaging cost) (quality inspection fee), logistics cost (supplier warehouse – port logistics cost) (port of origin – port of destination logistics cost) (port of destination – destination warehouse logistics cost);

Amazon commission (15% of sales), co-location fee (0.3 USD 2.1 RMB)

The giveaways, packaging costs, quality inspection costs in this can be added if available, and ignored if not.

Product purchase cost

This product purchase cost is our final purchase price after tax, and this purchase cost is subject to change.

After we have certain sales volume, we can negotiate with the factory for a lower purchase price, thus reducing our costs.

Here we recommend a pricing idea: start with a 15% profit margin.

We use high quality products with the mid-range market price range, with a relatively low profit margin to occupy the market, after the sales volume to negotiate a lower purchase price with the factory.
