If you\u2019re worried that you\u2019ve missed the e-commerce boat, don\u2019t worry. It\u2019s just getting moving.\n\n\n\nWhile several ecommerce companies like Ebay, Shopify, Walmart, and Etsy can make selling products online easy, in my experience, the best way to make money online is with Amazon.\n\n\n\nAmazon is a huge opportunity for those who want to join the world of e-commerce. In 2020, Amazon raked in $386 billion in revenue \u2014 over half of which was fueled by third-party sales. \n\n\n\nBut what can you do to get a piece of the Amazon pie?\n\n\n\nThere are tons of great ways to earn cash on Amazon, so to help you find what method might work best for you, this article dives into the top ways to make money on Amazon in 2022.\n\n\n\n1. Sell your own private label products on Amazon\n\n\n\nThe best way to make money on Amazon in 2022 is still through private label sales using Amazon\u2019s Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) network. Around 67% of all Amazon sellers run their business using the private label method. \n\n\n\nPrivate label is a process of manufacturing a pre-existing item (preferably, with product improvements), putting your branding and logos on it, and selling it to consumers. Sometimes it is referred to as white labeling or brand creation. (The process has been around for years and is common in countless retail stores; Target\u2019s Mainstays brand and Walmart\u2019s Great Value are two examples of private label brands.)\n\n\n\nThanks to FBA, Amazon is able to deliver your products (typically in two days or fewer \u2014 what you likely know as Amazon Prime). This is how e-commerce business owners \u2014l ike you and me \u2014 can list goods on Amazon and make money from the sales.\n\n\n\nAmazon makes private labeling even easier thanks to a number of advantages:\n\n\n\nFirst, you can use a tool like Jungle Scout \u2014 the all-in-one platform for selling on Amazon \u2014 to estimate the sales your product will make once it\u2019s on Amazon.Next, it\u2019s easy to source and manufacture your products with the help of platforms like Alibaba or Jungle Scout\u2019s Supplier Database.Finally, after you\u2019ve created your product, you can sell it on Amazon using FBA. You don\u2019t even have to ship your own orders!\n\n\n\nHow much money can I make selling private label products on Amazon?\n\n\n\nApproximately $625 to $1,875 per month per product.\n\n\n\nOver half (56%) of private-label sellers earn $5,000 or more in monthly sales, and nearly two-thirds (59%) have profit margins over 16%. Among private-label sellers who have more than a year of selling experience, 20% have earned over $10,000 in lifetime profits.\n\n\n\nimilar to Private Label, selling wholesale involves purchasing bulk quantities of product to sell using Amazon\u2019s FBA network.\n\n\n\nThe primary difference, however, is that you are selling other companies\u2019 products. Therefore, you don\u2019t have to worry about manufacturing and branding the products.\n\n\n\nFor a lot of sellers, it\u2019s one of the most popular ways to make money on Amazon.\n\n\n\nHow much money can I make selling wholesale goods on Amazon?\n\n\n\nUp to $3,000 \u2013 $4,000 per month.\n\n\n\nWhile wholesaling on Amazon has become notoriously more difficult in the last few years, it\u2019s still a great way to earn money.\n\n\n\nNote that it is a lot more competitive than the private-label market \u2014 since you\u2019ll likely be sharing the Buy Box with other resellers. So it can sometimes be a \u201crace to the bottom\u201d on prices where the only \u201clever\u201d sellers have to compete with each other is through lowering their price relative to their competitors.\n\n\n\nPlus, the profit is all in the buy. If you can\u2019t buy your goods for a low enough price, you won\u2019t make money.\n\n\n\nStill,\u00a061% of wholesale sellers\u00a0on Amazon make $5,000 or more in monthly sales \u2014 which is nothing to sniff at.\n\n\n\n4. Deliver goods for Amazon\n\n\n\nBy now, you probably know that Amazon has its own delivery service. But did you know that you can join Amazon\u2019s delivery fleet as a driver?\n\n\n\nAmazon\u2019s Flex program allows you to do just that. All you have to do is answer a quick questionnaire, download their app, and if you\u2019re accepted, you start making money.\n\n\n\nThink of it as Uber, but for Amazon deliveries\n\n\n\nHow much money can I make as an Amazon affiliate?\n\n\n\nThis money-making method varies greatly in its returns.\n\n\n\nThe Amazon Associates program is probably the most popular affiliate program on the internet.\n\n\n\nWhile the commission percentages aren\u2019t particularly high \u2013 usually only 3-5% \u2013 the conversion rates and volume you receive from sharing those links make up for it.\n\n\n\nThe downside is that you need to be an internet influencer. If you don\u2019t have a decent social media following (or blog), making a lot in sales commissions will be difficult.\n\n\n\n7. Flip online retail store products using online arbitrage\n\n\n\nWith online arbitrage, you\u2019re buying products to flip on Amazon from other e-commerce stores, versus buying products in-store as you would with retail arbitrage. \n\n\n\nWith retail arbitrage, you\u2019re limited to physical stores in your area but with online arbitrage, the possibilities for purchasing inventory are nearly endless. There are opportunities to flip products from many online retailers such as eBay, Walmart, Target, CVS, Home Depot, and so on.
