As we all know it Amazon completely changed the way we shop and spend money on shopping. Now we are able to get low priced and high-quality items very easily all from the comfort of our home
But all this time you were only using Amazon to spend your money but have you ever wondered if you could make money with Amazon?
I surely have wondered and dug deep into whole amazons website and found out ways that will put money in your pocket rather than taking them out.
Some of the ways are really easy and some are tough but they all have the potential to make you a handsome amount of cash each month.
1. Amazon’s MTurk (Mechanical Turk)
Mturk is a program created by Amazon where you’ll find small jobs which you could do to make money with Amazon.
The jobs on Mturk requires a human to do them and no AI can do it (as of 2019) so companies pay a good amount of money to people who are willing to do the work for them.
Some of the jobs on mturk are really easy and take mins and while others are also easy but they are long so you are given a time frame of 3days or even a week to complete them.
Some of the most popular jobs on mturk are transcribing where you’ll get a video and you’ll have to type whatever the person says just like creating subtitles and other is writing the items from the shop receipt provided.
I have worked on mturk before and my job list was filled with store receipt typing requests.
You literally get paid to type the items from the customer’s receipt and get paid at least 0.1$ per HIT and there are 100s of such.
2. Refer Products
Most of your friends are already shopping from Amazon and this makes it easy for you to refer them a product they like and if they but it you’ll get a commission on it.
To do that you’ll have to signup with amazon associates and from there you’ll get a unique link for every product you want to promote.
Just copy that link of the product and send it over to your friends.
The commission usually differs from product to product and ranges from 5% to 10%.
Here is the list of product categories according to their commission percentage.
You can also review the product on youtube or write a blog on it and share it on your social media. This way you’ll reach more people and the chances of people buying increases.
3. Self-Publish With Kindle
Kindle is an amazing platform for selling your own book without any help of publishers.
If you have that creative mind to write entertaining book or info books then you could make a fortune on kindle.
There are people who have published their books on kindle and made millions just by selling those on kindle.
There is also a commission procedure in place here where you’ll have to pay Amazon a fee for every sale you make. That percentage depends on what price you sell your book at.
You could even make more money by referring products on the inside of the book so if anyone buys it you’ll get a commission.
4. Amazon FBA
Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) is a trending business right now, where you’ll list your product on Amazon and send your inventory to the amazon’s warehouse and every time someone buys that product amazon will deliver the product while keeping a small amount of profits.
To get started you’ll have to invest your money to find and buy the right product in bulk.
You can invest as little you want and as high as you want depending upon the products you choose to sell.
FBA is completely based on product selection. If you are able to find the right product at the right price then you can dominate on FBA.
There are some more thing that you need to do like getting your product rank high up, getting the best quality in the market so that there are minimum returns and etc.
But if you are able to do all the things perfectly then it becomes a completely passive income source which is a great way to make money with Amazon.
5. Amazon Handmade
Amazon handmade is a relatively new platform for people who create goods on their own or with a small team.
Getting into Handmade is not that easy tough.
You’ll have to apply for an invitation and send some of your goods to amazon’s team to ensure your goods are handmade and there are no more than 20 people working with you.
Once you get approved you can put a price on your products according to your needs and Amazon will collect a commission from that price.
6. Amazon Merch
Merch by Amazon is amazon’s Print on demand service and just like amazons homemade you’ll have to apply to get an invite.
It will provide you with blank t-shirts and you’ll have to upload your designs on the t-shirt and if someone buys that t-shirt amazon will print it and ship it to the customer.
All you have to do is come up with different cool looking designs which people will love to wear when on a t-shirt and the selling part will be done by Amazon.
Once you list your created design on amazon it will automatically be enabled for amazon prime and fast shipping.
Amazon created this just to compete with other platforms who were already doing it like Teespring and Printful.
In those platforms, you can only create t-shirts the selling will be completely upon you but due to amazons large audience, it becomes easier for you too sell your t-shirts and make money with Amazon.
If you are already going to buy something on Amazon might as well save some money there.
