FBA supporter

Hi Joe,

Having just sent in my first few boxes to FBA, I am glad to see the happy ending to your article supporting this venue.

Having sold in another marketplace, I can only state that so much of my time was taken in taking pictures, packing, weighing, posting, trips to post office and back, etc. it is a relief and delight to let someone else do this tedious work.

Yes, I get charged for the service, but while they are charging me, I am taking that former time spent on those laborious details to get out to the stores/libraries/events to purchase more items to increase my income.

As the old adage says, time is money and I would rather spend my time buying products than packing and shipping them.

Best regards,

Hello Barbara;

I'm glad you liked the article and found it helpful.

I'm in total agreement with you about the time savings. The rates Amazon charges are pretty reasonable. I always tell readers that if the prices they charge for their inventory can't support Amazon's charges, then they should be selling better books!

I have tens of thousands of books in Amazon distribution warehouses around the country. There's no way I'd want to pack and ship all the orders I get on a daily basis because it'd take me too far away from what I consider my core competency: finding and buying more books.

I wish you great success with your business and I hope you'll share your FBA experiences with the members of my Internet Booksellers Forum. Membership is FREE and I strongly encourage you to join and introduce yourself to the group. I'm sure everyone would love to hear about your efforts to build your business.
