Top things to prepare you for Diwali selling

by Arshiya Dey on 17/10/2017
Got you excited? Well, festivities have traditionally been very exciting for Indian businesses and business owners. Every year they bring you a step closer to your customers along with all the sales, profit and growth.

As a new seller, your experience of selling on a global marketplace could get overwhelming. Therefore, here are a few tips to follow for a seamless first Diwali experience on Amazon:

Tip 1: Download the Seller App: Every time you receive an order or a customer query, it is important that you respond as quickly as possible. In fact, the Amazon Seller App can also help you make product description edits and add more products to your catalogue even if you don’t have access to your computer or a professional camera.


Tip 2: Sign up for FBA or use the Easy Ship service: As a business owner, your next concern will revolve around logistics and shipment. By signing up for the Fulfillment by Amazon service, you would have taken care of that. The FBA service allows sellers to send their entire stock/inventory to an Amazon fulfilment centre/warehouse and then Amazon takes care of everything else that includes the packaging of your products upon receipt of orders, shipping the product, delivering the product on or before time and handling returns on your behalf.

However, if you would like to store your products at your own warehouse and still avail logistic services, you can use Easy Ship. All you will need to do is keep your products packed based on the number of orders you have received and an Easy Ship executive will pick up your orders from the doorstep of your warehouse or residence and dispatch it on your behalf.


Tip 3: Take advantage of all the seller exclusive offers: Every Diwali, Amazon hosts a number of offers exclusively for its sellers. This year, you can access all the seller related offers by visiting the Sellerbration page. However, you must hurry because many of these offers are valid only for a limited period.


Tip 4: Use sponsored products: As a new seller you can avail the Sponsored Product service to boost your sales by letting your products show up on the first page of the search results.


Tip 5: Get assistance from our Third party service provider network: All of us need help at some point in our lives, so asking for some help shouldn’t be the last thing on your mind. Whether it is cataloguing, imaging or step-by-step assistance, our third party service providers are trained to take care of all your business related requests.

You can only follow these tips if you have already registered yourself as a seller on Amazon. To learn more about benefits of online selling, please click here. Have questions about selling online? Visit our Start Selling Guide.
