Today’s new podcast episode dives into some of the most common questions we get regarding the “gray areas” of selling on Amazon as a new seller or moderately experienced seller. I have nuanced answers and some strong cautions for you on the most common topics we hear about on our team.

While we pride ourselves in typically bringing you a steady stream of success stories from among our student base on most episodes, today’s episode is all about helping you avoid some danger areas while also encouraging you to embrace some strategies that you may have been unnecessarily overly cautious about so far.

I share some of our seasoned advice (based on helping 1,000s of sellers) on topics such as the following:

Using BUY LISTS, selling products that look different on the label than they do on Amazon, drop shipping, selling items that others sourced for you, shopping clearance aisles, selling books, selling seasonal items, selling shoes/clothes, bulk discounts and finally stalking the stores of other Amazon sellers for ideas.
