I just started selling on Amazon from Ireland. However, because of postage in Ireland is very high when ship it to UK or elsewhere. Now I am looking into FBA, but again. For me to send anything from Ireland to UK as a box or parcel will cost me around 30euro which will give me a negative margin 🙁 but if I post it as large envelop or small packet will be cheaper than a parcel. Does anyone know if amazon accept large envelop or paket? and is there any Irish sellers here know which post carrier offer the best price to UK?
As a newbie, I am willing to learn and take any advice from anyone. I believe that to have a successful life/business, It can not be done alone. Tips/advice is much appreciated
If you are doing Online Arbitrage you could source in the UK and have your products sent to an England based prep centre, who would check, label and prep your items, and would send them to Amazon. This way you would be paying UPS £5.03 for each standard sized box.
if you’re shipping to the UK, you could be better off sending a lot your products together in bulk by the pallet. Works out less expensive. There is a service called Parcels World to do this. Pallets from €134.99. I am in Ireland too. http://parcelsworld.ie/ Have to admit I haven’t use it myself because in my experience I find RA is very limited method of sourcing here, difficult to scale up. Maybe you will have better luck.
Yes, I have been doing Amazon FBA in the UK and US from Ireland for two years.
It is very straight forward to set up but it is also very important that you set up correctly from the start as Amazon doesn’t allow you to change your details easily and they will automatically suspend your seller account if you try to change your details.
I learned from a UK based seller called James Greaney. He is from Ireland but he has been selling on Amazon UK and USA since 2013. He shares lots of helpful tips on his Youtube channel Internetbizuni and I hired him to teach me the process when I first got started.
This is how you can sell on Amazon FBA from Ireland:
Use a UK LTD company.
Send your products to a prep centre in Northern Ireland and from there to Amazon FBA via low cost delivery service UPS.
Make sure to give your correct bank and company details from the start as they are hard to change later.
