My brother running a readymade garment shop (retail) in a town. He is thinking to sell in online as well. I am wishing to help him for this online selling. Could anyone know the process for opening in Amazon/Flipkart, Challenges, Hidden terms etc. Any information will be helpful

I heared amazon charges 18%.. Not sure if that is just for seeking stuff or also include shipping…

Would also advice to have your own website so slowly you can get customer to buy from your own platform..

Flipkart called me to list my products on their platform.
They were charging 14% extra. Shipping + Packing excluded.
U will have to click and send photos, they will help u to set up and list.

I rejected.

If you don’t mind me asking, what products are you selling or what is your line of business other than NA?

Rather than amazon/flipkart, try selling on instagram I would suggest.

We mainly deal in *************** and related stuffs.

And as per me, we should never look for unbranded stuffs online (especially clothes).

One should rather concentrate on selling through Fb page/ instagram.
Later you can build your own website also.

This will help u in ur brand building as well.

It’s not sustainable going Amazon/FK way. They will eat up ur business.

You can sell online but it should be branded or you should have trademark for unbranded products. You should keep in mind 30 days return policy. Calculate your products value including this all things product price + shipping + website commission (10-30%)+ gst+ your profit.

Bhai it would have been ok if you were a manufacturer of the product. Having Retail Shop and want to join az or fk ,personally don’t think it will be profitable or sustainable in future.

Better you join Facebook or Whatsapp groups or instagram as others suggested. It will definitely work in long run though first few month might be dull .

I am CERA product dealer, i was called by Amazon to register my product on Amazon. I have registered my product also but no major response. They are charging 8% + Rs 40 Delivery charges which is too high.

That is because they want you to build a huge customer base for cera products online coaxing you to give customer service at the same time getting their fee. Once they realise which products of Cera are selling good and customers are open to purchase such things online rather than shops it would be end game for other sellers. They will probably strike big direct deals with cera, cut off all middle men and beat you at your own game with cheaper pricing.

Amazon basics/branded items are prime examples of this. They don’t even have to do any market or product research for them. They just out source it to some chinese manufacturer (they will do some good quality control though) and sell them with their brand. Customers need these common items (researched from the easily available data from their own website) and they will sell them with some good margin which other sellers can’t afford.

Amazon is like a drug… Good in the start but in the end it will consume you with their private labels/ brand connections .

Note : End in the above statement might be as short as 3 months.

In US/Europe there are laws/courts through which you can fight for injustice but India is act of God.

Couldn’t agree more! These are the Amazon 2.0 market goals which is now followed by flopkart, as usual.

Very well said smile

p.s. I don’t like Amazon’s own products… they are not good in quality.
