Trying to learn about Amazon.com
February 28, 2009 2:02pm CST
I have purchased items from Amazon dot com, and have found message forums today. I'd like to know if anyone here is 'very knowledgeable' where the Amazon website is concerned. I'm thinking about trying my luck at selling some things there, but don't know where or how to get started. Any tips that you can help me with? Thanks Classy Cat

Are you located in the US? That's one question you need to answer first before selling your products with Amazon. There's a lot of things you need to know like taxes of different states, shipping costs etc. The reason I ask your location, is that Amazon's customers are mainly from the US or at least their shipping address is in the US. And if you are outside that location, there's a big chance that customers will be paying a hefty sum of shipping cost to avail of your products. And that will make them think twice. I suggest you try Ebay first.
