In this Thrifting For Profit Podcast we discuss … Selling Toys On Amazon FBA – BUT only during the Holiday Season.
Today Jessica Larrew is helping on the podcast. Jessica is a master at selling on Amazon FBA and has a website and a Private Group Coaching Facebook Group that are amazing. You can get a FREE guide called “Why Selling On Amazon FBA Works” right on her website.
Selling Toys On Amazon FBA This Holiday Season?
We talked a bit about Jessica’s new guide on last weeks podcast… but I really wanted to Dig In this week with Jessica.
I have a FREE Holiday Guide in the files when you join my Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thriftingforprofit/.
This guide is NOT about selling toys, it’s 60 pages of products you might find at thrift stores to sell during the Holidays.
Also – listen to this podcast about Holiday Scouting For Cash Strapped Amazon Sellers. (Note – this is the very first podcast so it’s a bit different than current podcasts). I talk about my Holiday Toy Selling Frenzy!
I got my hands on Jessica’s new guide about selling toys last week and read through it all (several times).
If you have been around a while, and listen to the show especially, you will know that I shy away from selling toys on Amazon (unless they are from the thrifties). My first holiday season selling on Amazon FBA was all about selling toys… and I made some huge mistakes.
Today Jessica and I are going to talk about our Toy Selling Mistakes. Once you hear about all our “goofs” – we both hope that you will understand why her guide is so powerful. Use the Hot Toy List’s to your advantage.
I can tell you that as I was reading this guide – I found myself saying “Duh… that’s what I did wrong” several times. Slap me around a little and I will get the picture.
During this last week, I’ve taken the information and did my own research (because Jessica does NOT tell you what to buy this year). I actually hit a big box store and bought a cart full of (GASP) Toys.
This is a story of persistence:
I had a coupon for a discount that I found online. I could see that I could purchase using this coupon and get the discount – but I wanted to save the hassle of shipping and didn’t want to pay sales tax.
All was going along fine… until I got to the cash register. The toys wouldn’t ring up with the discount. The cashier called over the manager and the arguing began. I was polite but persistent. The result: Every Toy was purchased with the discount. Go Me!
Also – finding toys on deep discount is always best. You WILL usually have a higher profit. But… Jessica isn’t teaching about buying products at DEEP discount (like clearance up to 70% off or buying at thrift stores).
I urge you to pick up Jessica’s guide here: (Free Updates Every Year)
Okay… Have A Great Weekend and Profitable Sourcing!
That’s my story… and I’m sticking to it…
