When it comes to online marketplaces, Amazon has long been one of the most popular choices for online buyers and sellers - and for good reason.

There are many ways you can benefit from the amazing opportunities that Amazon has created, so let’s look at just five ways you can earn money with Amazon. 

Sell Goods Wholesale 

Let’s start with the avenue of revenue that most people associate with Amazon: selling goods wholesale. While the practice is not as easy as it was when there were fewer sellers on the platform (making for less competition), wholesaling goods on Amazon is still a fantastic way to make money. Statistics site Statista estimates that, as of December 2018, Amazon had an average of more than 206 million unique monthly visitors, making the site one of the best places to get items seen for sellers. 

Sell Handcrafted Items 

If selling someone else’s items doesn’t appeal to you then Amazon can help you in another way, by giving you a platform to sell your own handcrafted items through Amazon Handmade. This invitation-only platform gives artisan crafters a space of their own to advertise their handcrafted wares, giving small-time crafters the chance of exposure on one of the biggest online marketplaces in the world. 

Publish Your Own Books 

Whether you are a published author or just an average joe with a flair for language and a desire to be published, Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing may be just for you. In addition to giving authors the opportunity to publish their work digitally, with Amazon’s CreateSpace, you can even print your own book on-demand as well. So whether you’re looking to add your name to the bookshelves or are just hoping to share your travel stories with the world, selling books on Amazon is fairly simple

Sell Services Through Amazon Services 

It’s not only people selling goods, handcrafted or wholesale that can benefit from the Amazon network. Plumbers, roofers, house cleaning services and other local professionals can sign up on Amazon Services to be matched with clients in their area, all you need is General Liability insurance and proof that you are a licensed professional to join. The service is free to join, however, there is a revenue share fee that applies to all professionals, so take that into account when pricing your services.
