Well written and easy to read.

The book compares and contrasts other sales sites where one can sell things, including Craigslist, uBID, Ebay, and Google Products Search.

Like most "How to make money on the web" gimmicks, they fall far short from the mark and are a rip-off.

Format: Paperback
I am glad I borrowed this book from the library instead of paying $ to buy it. We have a merchant store on Amazon for 4 years. This book has not told me anything that I didn't know. I finished the book in 3 hours, granted I skimmed through a lot of it because I already knew the stuff. But it sounds more like an advertising for Amazon as it keeps talking about these sucessful Amazon sellers. Well, I wonder how many of them actually compete head on with Amazon. They talked about a seller saying that it is not a problem competing with Amazon and don't think Amazon will drive them out of business. But they don't tell you the truth!! If Amazon gets into a product, they get the buy box almost 95% of the time even if they are not the lowest price seller. Then of course the book didn't talk about how ruthless Amazon is in driving out competition, that they will match the lowest price of any seller (may be except for the book category) before shipping, instead of the overall price. We have in our experience seen Amazon sell an item cheaper than wholesale cost, and we called the supplier and verified that the price they sell to Amazon is indeed higher than what Amazon is selling at. In other words, Amazon is the 10,000 lb gorilla that will squash the competition even by losing money on the sale because Amazon can afford to. Therefore, if you are a new seller and want to get into selling on Amazon as a business, don't let this book fool you thinking that it is easy as long as you have great customer services. It also don't tell you that A-Z guarantee is always on the side of buyer no matter what form of confirmation you have. All in all, this book is for someone with no experience selling on Amazon at all. The only thing I found useful was just some tips on marketing.

As an Advantage Member on Amazon I was very eager to read this book in hopes of improving my own sales on Amazon and perhaps finding a way to sell other items on the site as well. I wasn't expecting to pick up a bandoleer of magic bullets that would transform my own marketing through Amazon, but I was pleased with what I did glean from this guide for better marketing. I'm easy to please in some ways because I was not expecting major revelations and in addition to specific techniques that I could immediately put to work, I was aiming to pick up a lot of additional background information about Amazon. Everyone reading this book will quickly understand that Amazon is growing at a geometric rate and expanding into most fields of product sales.
Much of the book dealt with businesses and web stores that are intended to be much larger than anything the reviewer is interesting in setting up. I was only interested in selling books and some art on Amazon. My goals are modest but I was pleased to find several nuggets that seemed intended just for me. Surprisingly, I found several helpful gems near the end of the book. One of the biggest surprises of the book was the advice by many of the top sellers on Amazon to use other venues to sell their products as well as Amazon. There were several lists of other venues for various products. There was also a plug for starting and learning the ropes to Internet sales through buying and selling on E-Bay. There was even a list of reasons to stay focused on E-Bay and whether it was the right time to add Amazon to the reader's selling venues.
There were many specific recommendations for high quality, inexpensive suppliers for helping web setters. One example was ULINE for most shipping and packing materials.

Format: Paperback
The most up-to-the-minute book about Amazon, how it works now and how you can profit by it.

Somehow, Brad and Debra Schepp got top Amazon sellers to reveal their secrets and inside tips on how to they succeed on Amazon and have shared those tips in this knowledge packed book.

Amazon, the internet's mall of America.....more like Mall of the World, is the pre-eminent internet sales vehicle on the planet. 65 million people shopped Amazon last year alone. If you are not selling on Amazon you are missing a huge market which is, for many people, the preferred way to buy things online.

Whether you want to learn how to clear out a bookshelf and sell unneeded books or open an Amazon store selling new merchandise, it's all explained in this book.

The Schepps pull back the curtain on Amazon and outline the steps in becoming a coveted "featured merchant." They further explain the importance of getting good customer feedback in the ever-important need to be highly-rated by Amazon customers.

They offer serious insider tips about how to find out what products sell by researching and monitoring Amazon's "movers and shakers" which are the top 100 most popular items in each category on Amazon. Want to see what's hot now? Visit Amazon.com/gp/movers-and-shakers/

The book covers mundane topics such as shipping, best practices, even where to get good deals on supplies. The book compares and contrasts other sales sites where one can sell things, including Craigslist, uBID, Ebay, and Google Products Search.

The Schepps even cover the top ten ezine sites in which to help drive traffic to your Amazon site. The top three are: ezinearticles.com, goarticles.com and webpronews.com.
