Sell on Amazon
Amazon Seller Central is Amazon’s marketplace program, also called 3P for “Third Party” .
You sell your products yourself on Amazon, retail, and direct.
It is up to you to manage the entire product cycle, whether it is:
- Integration of your catalog catalog
- Managing your stock
- Sales / marketing animation
- After-sales service management
On the Amazon site, the owner of a brand can list their products accurately and completely, and ensure that their products are represented as they wish.
The content can be enriched beyond the “basic” description, with so-called “A +” product sheets : additional images, comparative articles, better formatted descriptions.
This additional, value-added content is a key point in optimizing its visibility and image on Amazon.
Amazon Vendor Central is the classic retail program, also called 1P for “First Party”.
- You wholesale your products to Amazon.
- Amazon resells them and distributes them itself.
Sellermania can help you optimize your Marketplaces sales with Amazon Seller Central.
❓ What are the main differences between Amazon Vendor Central (1P) and Amazon Seller Central (3P) ?
Sell on Marketplace or retail? What is the difference ?
Amazon Vendor Central is Amazon’s retail program.
That is to say that the products are sold to Amazon which distributes them according to the usual rules of commerce.
Sure Amazon Seller Central , professional sellers sell their products themselves using the sales features offered by Amazon.
Each sale on Seller Central results in the payment of a commission to Amazon. Conversely, the sale via Vendor Central works on a “classic” model of purchase resale by Amazon.
By selling in Retail to Amazon, brands generally have little control over their selling price, which is decided by Amazon. Amazon is known to have an aggressive pricing policy, and practices automatic and systematic benchmarking of the competition. The moment you sell your products to Amazon, you lose all control over the selling prices. This point is not specific to Amazon, the same applies to other e-commerce sites, which benchmark each other.
Conversely, if you distribute the products via the Amazon Marketplace, you define your pricing policy yourself. In return, you make the delivery to the consumer yourself, and provide customer service. It is always possible to use the “Fulfilled by Amazon” service which frees you from logistics and customer service, and is often a good solution for a brand that does not know how to manage the end consumer.
The choice to distribute its products through the marketplace also allows more control over its range and the availability of its products. It is the brand that decides to display the products in stock, while through Vendor Central, Amazon decides whether or not to order your products, which sometimes can affect availability.
Sure Amazon , whether we sell it in retail or in marketplace , the wealth of product sheets directly impacts the conversion rate and therefore online sales.
The Amazon product sheets called A + allow a conversion improvement of 30% , which is far from negligible.
No minimum number of products is required for sell on marketplaces .
Some merchants start with a few products, others have hundreds of thousands. The main thing is, as in traditional distribution, to have references that sell, and attractive prices.
Sales via Marketplace can represent a huge and rapidly growing portion of a website’s total sales.
According to FEVAD, marketplace sales represent 34% of the overall sales of sites that have it.
On Amazon, Marketplace sales in France would represent 70% of sales overall, a figure higher than the site average, which is around 60%. Some countries have been opened exclusively in “marketplace” mode, such as India, where 100% of Amazon sales are made by marketplace sellers.
On the seller side, the share that marketplaces represent in their activity can be very variable. Some companies sell exclusively on marketplaces and therefore achieve 100% of their turnover there (this is the case of Momox for example, a German company with more than € 100M in turnover on marketplaces). For others who have a website, it is not uncommon for marketplaces to represent 10 to 30% of their business volume.
This is certainly not a rule, as it will depend on the investment and strategy of each seller.
To get A + product sheets on Amazon , much more detailed information should be provided than is basically required.
- Additional images
- Long and well-structured descriptions
- Comparisons with similar products
As a brand, selling on Amazon makes it possible to monitor the prices charged by competitors and sometimes very aggressive resellers.
Even if brands cannot impose a price on Amazon, being a marketplace seller gives transparency on the prices charged by other sellers for the same products.
Being a referenced and active brand on Amazon is a good way to monitor the pricing practiced by sellers.
Sellermania’s software integrates a dynamic price calculation module “Market First”, awarded and rewarded for its innovation, which allows a dynamic adjustment of all its prices, in real time on Amazon, according to a large number criteria: competition, type of logistics (Shipped by Amazon or not), condition of new or used products, seller’s profile, obtaining the purchase box, competitor’s nationality, etc. The adjustment is done automatically, without the intervention of the seller, once the process has been configured, which is very fast.
The impact on sales is major, and 99% of salespeople who use this solution see a significant impact on turnover.
Selling costs on marketplaces of course vary according to the players who offer its sales functions.
Overall, most offer fixed fees that correspond to a monthly subscription and variable fees proportional to the number of products – the insertion fees – and the volume of sales.
Marketplaces subscription fees vary between € 30 and € 500 depending on the services included. It is therefore advisable to do your calculations well in order to optimize sales costs .
Depending on the sector, marketplace commissions also vary significantly.
Sellermania collected all of these sales costs on marketplaces in a dedicated file: commissions by marketplaces .
This obviously depends on the complexity of what you want to do.
If you start directly on marketplaces, there is no delay . From the moment your account is opened, and you have passed the step ” Verification / KYC », You can start selling on most marketplaces like Amazon, Cdiscount, Fnac, Rakuten, eBay … For some marketplaces, you will need an interface via an integrator: La Redoute, Rueducommerce, Spartoo …
If you want to interface your website and manage it via flows, the easiest way is to go through an integrator. It will take time to integrate, aiming to adapt your feed to what is necessary to sell on marketplaces. The times for this stage range from 1 day to several weeks, sometimes several months. depending on the complexity of what you want to do, the quality of your catalog, your ability to export the mandatory attributes required by marketplaces.
Time to implementation of sales on marketplaces depends on several factors:
- Depending on the marketplace chosen, the reactivity time can vary greatly
- The complexity of your situation can be a source of time to anticipate
- If you have a website with a product feed to distribute on marketplaces, you must already know if the item sheets are already created on the marketplaces, or if they will have to be created.
To check if your products are already referenced, all you have to do is look for the EAN code of your products on the marketplaces. If you find them, it means that the item file is already referenced. Otherwise, it will have to be created.
If your products are already listed, it’s easier, and in a few days your feed can be configured to be sent to marketplaces. The sale of your products on marketplaces can then go very fast.
