Best Online Arbitrage Sourcing Product Lead Lists for Amazon

What is Amazon Online Arbitrage Sourcing and How Does it Work?

Online arbitrage is the method of finding items online, usually at retail stores, which can be purchased and then resold on Amazon. This is one of the easiest methods for new sellers to get started on Amazon since it requires very little overhead and relatively little investment. As the name implies, the process of finding products for resale on Amazon can be done 100% online.

Once items are purchased, they can be resold on Amazon in a few ways.

Dropshipping – Technically, in this method of selling, you the seller are buying the items from the retailer after you already sold them. This is known as Retail Dropshipping. However, it’s worth noting that this method is frowned upon by Amazon and is a violation of their Terms of Service unless you’re using 2-step dropshipping.

Fulfillment by Merchant – In this method, you the seller buy items and ship them to either yourself or a warehouse. After you receive them, you list them to Amazon and then you use the inventory that you purchased to fulfill the orders as sales come in through Amazon.

Fulfillment by Amazon – In this method, you the seller can ship the items to your home or you can ship them to what’s known as a “prep center” warehouse which will receive items for you so that the items can be properly boxed up and then shipped into Amazon.


Online Arbitrage vs Retail Arbitrage

Sometimes the terms “online arbitrage” and “retail arbitrage” are used interchangeably since in both cases a seller is usually buying items at a retailer, which he plans to resell on Amazon. However, in some circles, “retail arbitrage” refers to buying items in person at a retail store. And in some cases, sellers actually do their research online but then physically buy the items at the store rather than checking out online.


Why use an Amazon Lead List?

A lead list is a list of products that you can sell on Amazon. By using a lead list, sellers can identify potential products that they can buy right now to resell on Amazon. This is a HUGE time saver. Instead of having to do painstaking research yourself, you can simply buy a list of products that have been pre-researched and found to be great products to sell. Using such a list helps you as a seller to get to profitability faster with less work.

Finding items on your own can be difficult. There are dozens of tools that can help you do research, but at the end of the day, finding items is a tedious task that is often outsourced.

Criteria to Consider

If you’re looking for an Amazon FBA source list, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First of all, make sure that the list is updated regularly. The last thing you want is to be using outdated information. Secondly, check to see if the list is comprehensive. It should include not only suppliers but also product information and pricing. Finally, take a look at the reviews to get an idea of the quality of the leads. A good Amazon FBA source list will save you time and money, so it’s worth taking the time to find a good one.
