is USD 20-50 good amount to start with PPC auto campaign?
Patrick Sze
46:24
ppc cost a lot and can eat into your margins I heard
Ellen Yong
46:35
PPC ,running ads are available in Amazon.sg now ?thanks
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
46:39
@andreas there’s no perfect/good amount. any amount is good for a start.
Anton Gunawan
46:45
if i am from indonesia , is it better open shop on singapore amazon or usa amazon ? is that possible to sell not using fba ? and how about the shipment cost ?
Isaac Lee
47:01
is it still 200 units limit after Dec-Jan?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
47:06
@patrick yes definitely. it’s advertising cost. the good news is that you can set a budget so you don’t overspend
Andrew Kao
47:23
How do you resolve error code 5665 please?
Kong KwokHon
47:25
Can you explain on "CPR 8days Giveraways"
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
47:42
@ellen no PPC yet in SG, but you can run lightning deals, best deals and such
Mabel Aye
47:53
If my profit margin before the PPC is too low, I can't effort to do PPC. This product has really high potential, high demand, less competitor. but the competitor price is so low. My sourcing price is not good enough. May I get your view on this type of condition? Launch this product without PPC and getting low margin? Don't bother to continue with this product?
Sia Kate
49:07
When you first started how much did you spent on PPC before making profits?
Joyce Tan
49:12
can u recommend 3rd party logistics in USA?
Ed Liu
49:34
Are we able to sell services such as online courses in Amazon or it must be physical products?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
50:19
@Ed looks like it
Ellen Yong
50:23
how to identify the demand of a product in Amazon.sg since the data isn't available in most 3rd party Amazon tools?
Sheikha Mattar
50:27
My products are produced in India with an organic manufacturing factory- will it be a setback for me to send from there. To have them sent to Singapore on a bulk basis is expensive and challenging during a pandemic.
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
50:27
@Ed looks like it must be physical products
Jenn Lee
50:30
Is attending the 1 day Amazon's Southeast Asia Online Seller Summit sufficient for us to start an online ecom biz?
Amazon Seller Ambassador
51:13
Hi Jenn, you can view the full agenda here: https://services.amazon.sg/events/sgoss-2021.html#agenda
Sheikha Mattar
51:29
If I have a US account all set up but not selling at all as I’ve not done any promo or PPCs, can I merge with Singapore now?
Jenn Lee
51:39
Do you recommend Jungle Scout?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
51:56
@sheikha selling online internationally, you have to ship overseas. if you don’t, then you’re limited to only the Indian market
Amazon Seller Ambassador
53:10
there will be different training workshops from beginner knowledge to slightly more advanced, it would be comprehensive sessions to get you started but you'll still have to do the ground work to start running your business :)
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
53:10
@Sheikha you can start selling in SG any time. but since you’ve set up in US already, why don’t you focus on selling there first?
Eileen
53:12
Hi, where is primarily target segment? Singapore market or US?
Andreas Setio Nugroho
53:23
besides PPC, what other strategy do you recommend for launching a product? before getting any review from customer
Mabel Aye
55:24
Thanks Felix
Sheikha Mattar
56:25
@Debbie, is there someone who can take a look at my US account as I need feedbacks on whether it is good to go, and what I need to do re my brand/product or even if my products is good for the Amazon platform? Setting up on Amazon is a lonely business when you start small and with small investment, and I am not sure if I am doing it right. It feels like I am groping in the dark.
Jenn Lee
58:13
How much does it costs to start a Amazon FBA business?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
58:18
@Sheikha i totally understand. unfortunately the only way to get someone like that is to find a paid consultant.
Sheikha Mattar
59:24
Any recommendations @Debbie?
Sheikha Mattar
59:54
Can we speak up here or only write?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
59:59
@Sheikha Jason Tay is an absolute gem. www.jasontayonline.com
Mabel Aye

How should I gauge the PCC cost per day? Let's say my profit margin is 20% ($10 per unit). How should I set my PCC cost? I don't know what is the demand for my product per day yet.
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:00:15
Feel free to unmute yourself if you have questions
Joyce Tan
01:00:21

Andreas Setio Nugroho
01:02:16

Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:02:37
You’re welcome @Andreas !
Michael Cheng
01:03:08

Joyce Tan
01:04:55

Andreas Setio Nugroho
01:05:35
@Felix and @Debbie may we know how many products are in your portfolio?
Sia Kate
01:05:51
How much do you bid for exact keywords? Is it 10% above the highest bid price recommended by amazon?
Michael Cheng

Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador

Jenn Lee
01:06:58
How much did you spend on your 1st niche? How much do you spend on your niches now?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:07:20
@Sia you can do trial and error. Play with the bid prices.
Andreas Setio Nugroho
01:07:25
@Anton yes, currently staying in SG
Anton Gunawan
01:07:51
@andreas salam kenal pak. udah buka di amazon singapore atau usa ?
Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:08:14
hey @Sheikha, You can also use Fulfilment by Merchant for your .SG account :)
Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:08:38
but it really depends on the arrangement between you and your selected logistics partner
Anton Gunawan
01:10:00

Mangaleswary R Vimalanathan
01:10:02

Andreas Setio Nugroho
01:10:05
@Felix @Debbie, understood thanks ;)
Sheikha Mattar
01:10:06
Thanks! What do you mean by ‘selected logistics partner’?
Andreas Setio Nugroho
01:10:36
@Anton salam kenal juga, masih di product research nih
Patrick Sze
01:11:12

Anton Gunawan

Patrick Sze
01:11:30
I got same question: If I have a US account all set up but not selling at all as I’ve not done any promo or PPCs, can I merge with Singapore now?
Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:11:33
For example, if you'd like to fulfil the orders yourself via a logistics partner like UPS, Aramex, DHL etc., everything will be handled between the both of you
Anton Gunawan
01:11:34
thank you felix
Patrick Sze
01:11:46
what happened if I send eg 200 qty but products doesn’t move/ sell
Jenn Lee
01:11:58

Loi Su Ling
01:13:02

Patrick Sze
01:13:06

Sheikha Mattar
01:13:10
Any recommendations for good, cost effective PPC consultant ?

Sia Kate
01:13:19
I just launched my product in Jan 2021 and most of my sales come from auto PPC campaign. should I set aside more budget for auto than exact?
Sia Kate
01:13:44
Cos you seems to favor exact over auto
Sia Kate
01:15:39
How much is your daily budget for exact PPC campaign?
Ivy I
01:15:39
Should we engage copywriter on listing creation?
Sheikha Mattar
01:16:12
What about a PPC expert?
Loi Su Ling
01:17:16
how long u take to research for new product before confirm ?
Sheikha Mattar
01:17:44
I have spent so much time on my products, and set up and keywords etc, so I’m trying to save time by getting someone to take a look at what I’d done to see if I’m moving in the right direction?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:18:27
@Sheikha i advise you just go live and start selling and learn from the results. tweak as you go along.
Sheikha Mattar
01:19:09
I am live todate since 1 month, but zilch ;-(
Sheikha Mattar
01:19:31
Hence that’s why I feel the need to get a second opinion
Kong KwokHon
01:19:47
Besides, zoom meeting,,,is there say monthly or quarterly Amazon sellers gathering in a certain venue?
Anton Gunawan
