Lastly, Kat spoke with Debra Conrad about how she does sourcing.

debraconradDebra has become known as the Bundling Queen over the last year. Her passion for creating and selling product bundles on Amazon is evident as she encourages Amazon sellers to think outside of the box and get a tiny bit creative with product sourcing.

Debra’s podcast is The Streamer Show – (formerly Thrifting For Profit).  She really like to cover sourcing products online (not at the regular suspect websites) AND Bundling products.  Sourcing wholesale is a great option for products to sell on Amazon, but it does take time to meet every wholesale suppliers requirements.

You can find tons of products to sell from online sources – that sell in bulk and give bulk discounts. Many of these sites will not have any requirements for purchasing. Some of them only require your Sales Tax License number.

Websites that offer discounts for bulk purchases are where I find most of my regular replenish-able products. I often sell these products in multi-packs or bundles.

Debra focus on providing product bundles that offer customers a great value, easy gift options and/or make shopping for specific items much simpler.  Plus – Debra focus a lot of attention on products currently in the Add-On program. Finding creative ways to offer these products to customers that are now outside the Add-On program is a huge part of my business.

If you are new to selling on Amazon – we encourage you to check out HowAzon.com.

  1. What is your current online business?

  3. What are your core beliefs about business and life?
  4. How do you integrate your family with your business?
  5. Where do you see your business in 10 years?
