What are the advantages of starting an Amazon store?
Besides the fact that the company will be able to access a larger consumer market than in the case of businesses carried out through a brick and mortar shop, the customers can purchase your products at any given hour, from basically any location across the world.
Another advantage refers to the business start-up costs that are available in this case, which are considerably lower when compared to a traditional shop. Amazon offers the possibility of creating different types of accounts, which can be selected depending on the volumes estimated for sale through the online shop.
In this sense, persons operating a business in their own name can register as through an individual account, which is a type of account for those who estimate that will sell less than 40 items a month. For businesses which expect larger volumes in sales, Amazon has a special account, created for those selling as professionals. The difference between the two types of accounts is given by the fee system applied by the Amazon platform.
