How Amazon Jumpstart Works

STEP 1 CHOOSE WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SELL

Through Amazon Jumpstart, they can help up list your products on Amazon.co.uk, on your own Amazon Webstore and on the 4 other Amazon European Marketplaces (Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, Amazon.es).

STEP 2 SHARE WITH US BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT YOU AND YOUR PRODUCTS

With Jumpstart, it’s easy to upload your product details on Amazon and your own Amazon Webstore. Share with Amazon the electronic information that you have. Whether it is an excel sheet, a XML file, a text file or even the URL to your site. They’ll do the rest.

STEP 3 UPLOAD OR LIST YOUR PRODUCTS IN THE MARKETPLACE(S) OF YOUR CHOICE

Finally, you need to upload your listings and push them live online on your chosen marketplace(s) and your Webstore. Jumpstart can help you in this final step too, and you will benefit from the expertise of Amazon’s highly-trained listing specialists to ensure a successful listing. They’ll need your consent before they can upload any listings to your seller account on your behalf though, because these listings are your product offerings.

STEP 4 START SELLING RIGHT AWAY

Through Jumpstart, you will be up and selling on both Amazon and your own Webstore quickly and easily.

What does it cost?

You’ll need to have a minimum of 100 listings and costs start from 50p per listings dropping down to 40p, 30p or even 20p for higher numbers of listings. Store front creation starts at £79 for a Webstore design with your logo, text and image links.

You’ll also of course be billed for all normal Amazon fees, but then they’ll largely only apply when you’ve made a sale.

Is it for you?

If you’re already have all your products listed and successfully selling on Amazon and have a well performing ecommerce website this offer may not be right for you. But if your website isn’t preforming as well as you’d like (or if you don’t have one!) and you want to get started selling on Amazon in time for Christmas this looks like a great way to get started.

It’s not often you get the opportunity to get real experts to get your products listed on a marketplace and don’t forget that once they’re listed, if you use multichannel management software, you can synch them all and you’ll be then able to manage your stock and orders quickly and easily.
