Esca Lui

Ivy
46:56
@Ng Wooi, try use Helium 10 - Search Volume
Nicholas Koh
47:18
helium10 will show you how much a product is selling, aka sales volume for every product
Ng Wooi
47:39
what volume is consider decent in helium?
Ng Wooi
47:58
i mean what number of volume?
Nicholas Koh
48:00
Ng Wooi, this is so subjective. defer from product to product
Ng Wooi
48:45
any general guide?
Ng Wooi
49:01
or example to share?
Ruihong Zhang
49:12
you have to see if the product has a diverse set of kw that add up to a nice number or the product has a small set of kw
Nicholas Koh
49:34
I be happy selling a $100 product for 500unitsbut I not be happy selling a $10 product for 500unit
Ng Wooi
50:10
so it mean revenue is important for u.right?
Ruihong Zhang
50:16
it depends on your cashflow to compete in different keywords so it is subjective to give a absolute value
Ng Wooi
51:09
u mean compete keyword in term of putting ads in amazon?
Ruihong Zhang
52:12
compete in kw ranking - that depends on sales vol/ conversion etc. etc.
Ruihong Zhang
52:24
amazon has their algo to decide that
Ng Wooi
52:48
ok
Nicholas Koh
54:17
anyone knows when q4 ends for amazon?
Ng Wooi
54:21
thanks

Clive Smith
01:06:57
Can you create a listing without publishing - otherwise what happens if customers order before you order from the factory?
Adilah Rasid
01:07:16
What is PPC again?
Cyril Chia
01:07:24
PPC = pay per click
Adilah Rasid
01:07:35
Thanks Cyril.
Ruihong Zhang
01:07:41
ppc is ads - sponsored products mostly
Cyril Chia
01:08:11
customers cannot buy your product until you send the item in, so you can create your listing first
Clive Smith
01:08:27
Thanks Cyril
Cat

Ruihong Zhang
01:11:34

Ruihong Zhang
01:11:50
i don't think that is a blocker to create listing
JENNIFER H
01:11:55
why US Trademark need an lawyer? can’t we just apply online?
Genevieve Ann Chua
01:12:31
Question: in your opinion, when doing product research, is it very important to have high search volume to guarantee a good sales? or low search volume may also be an indicator of a new type of product and product has potential in the future?
Esca Lui
01:13:04
sourcing agent LINK ??
Jee Da
01:13:26
how would you determine if product is viable to continue. I am in first month of launch, ACOS is 50% and slowly dropping. I am not expecting to be profitable in the first month but what are some of the factors you will look out for before reordering?
Nicholas Koh
01:13:43
Question : Will you recommend someone to pay money for bootcamp, or learn yourself foc from youtube?
Rasheed Gaffoor
01:14:10

Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:14:56
Hi Jennifer, US trademark is super complicated to apply for. best way is to use a lawyer. But Amazon IP accelerator can help you more efficiently: https://brandservices.amazon.com/ipaccelerator/faq
Rick Chan
01:14:58
Thank you Felix for your generous sharing!
Joris D'Souza
01:15:01
Felix, How do I open online store Amazon.sg?
Ng Wooi
01:15:17
china supplier will send the good directly to usa amazon warehouse?
Ruihong Zhang
01:15:55
@joris my suggestion is always US market first
Natalie
01:16:02
Hey Joris, you can visit https://services.amazon.sg/resources/registration.html for a registration guide to open you amazon.sg seller account :)
Ruihong Zhang
01:16:29
@ng wooi most of us use a freight forwarder
Jas Ng
01:16:42
What is the shipping arrangement from SG to US? By Amazon? OR we need to source ourselves?
Joris D'Souza
01:17:04
Without trademark registration, can we still print the LOGO on the product and indicate LOGO name on amazon page as part of description?
Ng Wooi
01:17:29
freight forwarded can ship from china to usa amazon directly?
Stefanie Liau
01:17:56

Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:21:03
@Hari Das - the US and SG are different marketplaces. so you have to decide where you want to start selling first. Or you can sell on both marketplaces.
Hari Das
01:21:46
@Debbie - So SG has a warehouse as well for the local market?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:22:33
@Hari yes we have a FBA warehouse in Singapore
Nelson Winn
01:22:34
Is it safe to pay 100% first payment to sourcing agent?
Jas Ng
01:22:58
So what is the concept of this? Order all the SKU and store in AMZ warehouse, then when order came in, AMZ will send out for us? Or we manage ourselves? and just mail it out when there is an order?
Fatin
01:23:14
Just wondering, whether Malaysia has a FBA warehouse?
Mohamed Zayed
01:23:34
hello
Cyril Chia
01:23:35
sourcing agent can negotiate.. maybe downplay 30% or 50% then the rest when the goods are manufactured
JENNIFER H
01:23:36
Hi may I know about the taxes for US market?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:23:49
@Nelson there’s no guarantee! so read the reviews for the agent, and try to limit your exposure by making your first order small
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:25:09
@Jas Yes using FBA, you order and send to amazon warehouse and amazon will handle all fulfilment and shipping for you when orders come in. Or if you prefer, you can hold your stock on your own and fulfil on your own. Or you can do both!
Nelson Winn
01:25:09
Thanks
Mohamed Zayed
01:25:27
my company is Singapore based, are we authorized to sell within USA
Hari Das
01:26:07
@Debbie - link to info on SG FBA warehouse please
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:26:09
@mohamed zayed Yes you just need to open an account on amazon.com
Nelson Winn
01:26:11
Where to get today slides?
Paula Rubio
01:26:27
When you start doing FBA on Amazon US, do you have to set up an LLC in the US first? Or is it okay to just use your personal information first before going through the hassles of setting up a business LLC in the US and get an EIN, etc.
Jas Ng
01:26:49
oic, thanks! Where can I find more information about FBA? Rental/ fee, etc..
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:26:53
@Hari Das all FBA info can be found here: https://services.amazon.sg/resources/education-centre.html/ref=assg-soa-f-edu
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:27:40
@Jas this applies to you too https://services.amazon.sg/resources/education-centre.html/ref=assg-soa-f-edu
Jas Ng
01:28:08
Thanks Debbie!
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:28:13
@Paula you don’t need a US company to sell on amazon US
Paula Rubio
01:28:32
Thanks, @debbie
JENNIFER H
01:28:55
Thanks
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:29:15
@Nelson the recording will be posted here in 2-3 days https://services.amazon.sg/seller-ambassadors.html#events
Paula Rubio
01:29:16
When doing product research, do you just take into consideration the broad keyword match, only exact keyword match or take into consideration both?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:30:20
@Jennifer US amazon will factor in all the taxes for you for each sale. so you don’t have to do your own calculations.
Fatin
01:33:17
Hi @Debbie, may I know how should I send the goods to FBA warehouse from Malaysia?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:34:22
@Fatin when you create a shipment plan in seller central, it will give you the address for the singapore FBA warehouse. Then you can arrange for your own courier company or freight forwarder. For shipments below 100kg, I usually use DHL or FedEx.
Jas Ng
01:34:44
Do we need to pay income tax in US if we sell in US amazon?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassadors
01:34:55
@Jas Nope.
Fatin
01:35:15
Alright, thanks @Debbie!
Jas Ng
