It's a message from the Amazon to the seller that the account has been suspended and all his listings are closed.
Amazon is asking for the product Invoice that he was selling. Unfortunately, he does not have the invoice. I have no idea why and what he was trying to do. All I can see in the letter shows that this seller sold the counterfeit product(s).
I can easily find fake products that have high leveled, well-made ones. And, some sellers think that's the money to sell. If you sell these products on Amazon, what happens? Suddenly, your account will be suspended, and all listings will be deleted.
Amazon holds your money for two weeks. You will not get money from the Amazon.
This seller who received the message from the Amazon might not be possible to provide the real invoice if he already knew his products are counterfeit.
Valuable products have unique numbers on each product. Let's imagine he was selling the Rolex watches. He can consider buying the real Rolex watch and send the invoice to the Amazon to pretend that he was reselling the Rolex watches. This is one of the methods other experienced sellers teach on their online courses.
If you do a dropshipping on Amazon, you would sometimes receive a message from the Amazon requesting to provide the invoice.
To use the Amazon platform to sell the products are possible to succeed in your selling business. But, as increasing the number of sellers and consumers, counterfeit cases are also increasing. It happened to the eBay.
I purchased many electronic products at eBay before Amazon became popular. And, I ended up losing money for the counterfeit products. It is the best platform for selling fake ones in a short time. If they have many negative feedbacks, they delete the eBay account and easily recreate one again. And repeat.
Amazon offers a free return to customers. If it's a counterfeit product, Amazon immediately suspends the seller's account and ask for an invoice.
If you consider selling the fake products on Amazon, stop thinking about it. It's too easy to return as a customer and easy losing money as a seller.
To provide a good product will be a shortcut for becoming a successful business owner.
How to create Amazon Listing Variations or merge other listings?
If you are trying to create a Variation-s- under the listing does not have a parent listing, you want to check this information.
I contacted the Amazon support team to ask how to create a variation on my existing listing that does not have variations -Child listing-.
They replied back to me with a long process and confusions on each task. They suggested using the Excel template to download from the right category and fill out the product information. I have done this so many times to upload listings if there are more than 5 products.
Yes, it's faster.
But, it takes time and so many errors I found from the listing. And, I had to wait up to 24 hours to check the listing.
So, I tried a different method to create a child listing from the existing active listing that does not have a parent listing.
**PLEASE NOTE:: BEFORE YOU PROCEED THE METHOD, MAKE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR LISTING INFORMATION. Title, Images, and ASIN will automatically merge, but your bullet point, description, and backend keywords will be disappeared. You cannot retrieve the information. When it's gone, it's GONE.
Create a NEW LISTING. Select the right category.
Fill out on the Vital Info page -You can add any title, Skip the UPC code, Fill out the other information such as product manufacturers and brand name-
Offer page to choose the Amazon takes care of all if you will sell as an Amazon Prime. If you missed this part to choose, you could do it after creating a listing.
Go to the Variations to add your existing SKU and ASIN. And, add other variations.
Skip other pages
Hit SAVE and FINISH
Wait for about 12 hours.
When you come back to the listing will start to see your existing listing changed to the child listing.
Now, you can start to add images to other new variations you created.
FIND PROFITABLE PRODUCTS YOUR COMPETITORS IGNORE by Mommy Income
Finding profitable products to sell is on every seller’s priority list. The problem most sellers face is doing endless searches only to find highly saturated categories and products with no profit. Ugh!
Product research can be a real time waster if you do not have a process. The good news is you do not have to stay stuck in a circle when looking for profitable products.
Here are a few steps to perform proper product research.
Step 1: Start with a problem or need
Instead of looking for bestselling items or competitive data to find products, start with a problem or need. Every product on the market meets a specific need or solves a problem. For example:
A puppy owner purchases food to keep their dog living a long, healthy, active lifestyle. They look for the dog food that will best meet the nutritional needs of their canine companion instead of purchasing food designed for senior dogs.
An office worker looking for a solution that will eliminate pain in their feet, knees, and back may purchase a footrest for under their desk.
While looking for products to sell, think about who will buy the product and how they will use it. Ask yourself: What problem does the product solve? What need does it meet that sets it apart from other items in the marketplace?
Step 2: Niche down
Once you find a category or products, look for smaller sub-niches to find less saturated products you may have overlooked that have less competition.
We use MerchantWords to do a broad search in order to find these more specific and less competitive products. Here’s an example:
First, do a general search for “guitar parts.”
Next, scroll down to the “sweet spot” – these are the search terms with between 3000 and 6000 searches per month where you can find sub-niches. You can also find these keywords using the filters in the upper right corner. Some sellers might run for the hills thinking these numbers are really low, but we challenge you to rethink that.
In this 30-day search volume span, there are many hidden niches with very little competition. When the demand outweighs the supply, there is money to be made.
The further down you go on the list, the more detailed the keywords become. These are sub-niches ready for you to explore.
Step 3: Validate your idea with other platforms
While conducting product research, it is important to check other platforms. Compare your product ideas with the number of listings or posts on eBay, Etsy, Walmart, Pinterest, or other marketplaces. While reviewing these other sites, take note of similar products and listings to gain a new perspective on what sells well in the new sub-niche you have discovered.
Step 4: Look at the competition
Make sure to look at existing products to validate if the demand is greater than the supply.
Let’s say you’re researching "dish drying racks for recreational vehicles (RV)." You find that there are only a handful of products and 3000 searches a month. Great! There is room for your product.
On the other hand, if you found 3000 searches and 200 existing products in the same niche, you should start researching another niche. If demand is greater than supply, you have a potential winner. If supply is greater than demand, it’s time to move on to another niche.
The key to finding profitable products is looking where others aren’t. Plain and simple, your competition is lazy. They want the low hanging fruit – the easy to find products. A little extra digging into the keywords and exploring other platforms will give you a bigger picture of the marketplace, as well as a competitive advantage.

They won several New Artist of the Year awards for the track "No More Dream", including at the 2013 Melon Music Awards and Golden Disc Awards and the 2014 Seoul Music Awards. The band continued to gain prominence with their subsequent albums Dark & Wild (2014), The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2 (2015) and The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever (2016), with the latter two entering the U.S. Billboard 200.

7 Keys To Finding Profitable Products On Amazon
Welcome and congratulations for taking the first step in changing your life forever! In this eBook, I will be breaking down the 7 Keys to Finding Profitable Products on Amazon. These 7 keys should be used as some quick guidelines, and will determine if the product is worth the investment!
Lets face it. The whole world is slowly making a huge transition toward e-commerce. Just this past year, the “juggernaut” retailers could not even compete against e-commerce stores. Here are some scary statistics backing this claim up:
Abercrombie & Fitch: Last March, they announced that it would close 60 of its U.S. stores with expiring leases during its 2017 fiscal year. The chain has closed hundreds of store locations over the last few years while placing an increased emphasis on online sales.
J.C. Penney: The department store chain is closing 138 stores this year while restructuring its business to meet shifting consumer tastes.
Macy’s: Facing declining foot traffic at its store locations, Macy’s said earlier this year that it would close 68 outlets and reduce its workforce by several thousand employees.
RadioShack: The once-prominent electronics outlet shut down more than 1,000 store locations earlier this year. The brand now operates just 70 stores nationwide, down from a peak of several thousand.
Sears/Kmart: Sears Holdings is one of the most prominent traditional retailers to suffer in a challenged sales environment. The brand closed 35 Kmart locations and eight Sears stores in July and has closed more than 300 locations this year due to pressure from e-commerce outlets.
Toys R Us: The toy shop just recently filed for bankruptcy in September due to there mounting debt and pressure from wary suppliers. For now, the company says its 1,600 store locations will remain open and operate "as usual," with no changes to organization structure or payroll. Following the 2017 holiday season, the future of the stores remains unclear.
Nike: One of the most known brands, Nike has been telling investors that it expects more of its sales to move online, saying that “undifferentiated, mediocre retail won’t survive.”
Now is arguably the BEST time to start your Amazon business. However, there are many complicated steps that one may/will face while starting their Amazon business. That's where I come in. My mission is very simple. I am going to help you, and will provide you the necessary tools to help you build an extremely successful Amazon business. My mission is to help you replace your 9-5 income, so you can spend YOUR life the way it was supposed to be spent, HOWEVER YOU WANT! It’s time to take back your life!
WHY AMAZON? WHAT ABOUT DROP SHIPPING?
Well, first let's start with what Amazon FBA is. Amazon FBA stands for Fulfilled by Amazon. So what this means is that Amazon will look after all of your stock (we ship your items to the specific warehouse they assign for you, and they store it in an Amazon warehouse). When a customer places an order on Amazon, Amazon picks out the order, and ships it to the customer on your behalf. Amazon FBA also handles pretty much all of the customer service, meaning they handle all of the returns and shipping questions. Your packages will also be eligible for Amazon prime, a huge buying advantage, over other sellers. This is arguably the best advantage, and we get access to their insane traffic.
So how does this all work? Well guys, it's actually a pretty straightforward process. We find a product that is already making others money, has a lot of demand, and has low competition. Once we find this product, we start contacting suppliers to private label the same product (but making it better, or adding something beneficial). We then ship it to an Amazon Fulfillment Warehouse, create your listing, sell it, and BOOM, we profit. Now this is a brief explanation of the process, and there are many other steps, yet this is the gist of it.
So why Amazon?
Well let's look at some stats. In 2016, Amazon had over 135 billion U.S. dollars in net sales. This year, (2017), they were able to raise this number by over 32%. An astounding 197 billion U.S dollars in net sales.
What about Drop Shipping?
Drop shipping is another amazing business model, however, the biggest flaw in drop shipping is not having the ability of organic sales. With drop shipping, you will always be responsible for driving traffic. What this means is, in order to get sales, you always need to be advertising. With Amazon, once we get your product on the first page, our work becomes minimal and we can get organic sales rather easily. We can sit back and watch the organic sales role in. Obviously there are many more steps to this, but this is just a quick example. Now there are many other advantages and disadvantages to both, and each are amazing opportunities. However, with Amazon’s numbers continually going up, there is no other place were I would want to be selling
How To Find A Profitable Product, And What They Look Like
I need you to stop what you are doing and focus 100% on this. Your Amazon business relies on finding a profitable product. Do this step wrong, and you will be banging your head wondering why your product won't sell. Now I am not going to sugar coat it, this is definitely the toughest part, and most people usually get obsessed with this step. The problem with that is, most people will not move past this step. But do not worry, that is what I am here for! There are literally tons of different ways to find profitable products, and that’s what I will be teaching you in some of my upcoming videos. But now let’s get to the 5 Keys to finding your first profitable product.
Is this product going to be profitable? Listen, if your product has no demand, guess what, you will make NO money. So that is why I always look at the Sales and Revenue for my potential product.
The minimum revenue I look for is at least $6,000-$7,000 USD for at least 7 products on the first page.
This number can be lower or higher depending on your specific goals. My goal is to be making at least $3,000 a month from each product (profit).
This is a perfect number considering our margins are usually at least 45% after all Amazon fees, and some PPC. Now obviously the higher these numbers the better it will be, but remember this is the absolute MINIMUM to look for.
Reviews allow us to see how competitive a product is. The lower the number, the better. It’s pretty straight forward. Now I put demand as the most important step because depending on your budget, the number of reviews can be higher. If you are looking for the BEST possible product however, you want to look for:
7 of the FIRST 12 products having lower than 150-200 reviews. (THE LOWER THE BETTER)
No more than 2 listings should have over 1000 reviews. However, if there is enough demand, and you feel you can hit your goal numbers or surpass them, then you are good to go.
3. Cost of Product to Source and Sell
Price is based on you specifically. If you have the budget to sell a $50+ item, and feel you can hit your goal numbers, then go ahead. However, you have to remember sourcing this product will be more expensive, and will require a much bigger capital investment.
Your product cannot be less than $15. This is because of the fees we have to pay (FBA fees, Supplier Fees, PPC, etc). Again, this depends on your numbers, but we always shoot for AT LEAST $6 profit a sale, and by having a listing price of under $15, this will be nearly impossible.
Patents are another important step that gets overlooked too many times. There is nothing worse then grinding to find a product, finding one, finding a supplier, PAYING for the product, listing it, then getting a cease and desist letter.
Checking if a product is patented is actually simpler than you may think. I personally like to use Google Patents, as I feel it is easier to operate (https://patents.google.com) All we have to do is search the broadest keywords for our product and check if the product is patented or not. If you don't find anything great, if you're still a little scared, you may want to consider talking to a patent attorney.
Checking to see if a product is seasonal is a MUST. There are many tools to check this including (https://camelcamelcamel.com) which is a website, and Keepa (https://keepa.com) which is a chrome extension that actually will show the sales chart on the Amazon product page. By doing this, we will be able to see if the product only sells in certain seasons. If so, we will want to avoid this product.
6. Listing Quality of Competitors
By looking at our competitors listings, we can determine if they have a good listing or not. What is listing quality and why does it matter? Well, when a customer searches for a product, they will be looking at a few things to help them determine their purchase decision.
Reviews (What are others saying)
Product Features (Bullets, Emojis,)
If your competitors have poor images, whether they only have one, if they are blurry, and/or if it doesn't show the true potential of the product, this is good for us! If the reviews of the product are poor, great! If the features are not what the customer is looking for, or doesn't solve the customer's problem, great for us again! If they don't have a description, or if it is a poor description (you will be able to tell), even better! If they have a poor listing, we can capitalize on this, and win sales from our competitors.
7. Can We Differentiate
A very big deciding factor before launching a product is whether or not we can differentiate ourselves from the competition. There are many ways that we can differentiate ourselves, a few include:
Better First Listing Picture
Changing Color of Product (Don’t Recommend as only differentiating factor)
Making a Better Product (Fixing Flaws)
Now You May Be Asking Yourself, How Can I Find Out The Revenue and Demand of These Products.
The software we are using is the Jungle Scout and Asin Inspector Chrome Extensions. You do not have to have these Chrome Extensions, but these will help you to find the average numbers monthly revenue and reviews.
Furthermore, MerchantWords software can give you more options to find the keywords and popular keywords people are searching every month.
The software is not amendatory but will need it if you would like to have a better result.
Amazon FBA fees? Yes, you must consider what is the fee to pay for your Amazon FBA business.
Why is important to know?
The reason you must consider the fee is that it's higher than you expect. The simple calculation for the cost is almost 40% of your profits you make from the Amazon selling.
We always ship all products to our location first and inspect them and send them to the Amazon warehouse,
Product price + Shipping cost to our warehouse + Attache Barcode to each item + ship them to Amazon warehouse (1,2, or 3 different locations) + Amazon warehouse fee + Amazon pro fee + And when we make any sales, we have to pay for the Amazon fee.
Yes, it seems a lot. So, without the calculation, you will lose your money.
So, for calculating your Amazon selling fees per each product you sell, you can use one of the free Chrome extensions, "FBA Calculator for Amazon."
(We are not getting any commissions)
We merely Googled it to found it. There are tons of different ones you can try to use them.
In the next article, we will focus on giving more information about the software for calculating your Amazon FBA fees because it's not easy to figure it out the accurate numbers.
