About the Author

My name is Chris Green and this is the first book that I wrote about selling products online and sourcing them at retail stores. I first published this book in September 2011. The story behind this book was that I wanted to write a long PDF about Amazon and FBA that answered all of the most common questions that were being asked. After I started writing, it ended up being a lot like a book so I looked into self-publishing options. It ended up being really easy and this book was released. I later stopped printing the book because I felt that the book was too long and basically covered two topics. The fist being the business model of arbitrage (along with Amazon and Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA)) and the second being process of sourcing products at retail stores. Not everyone who wanted to learn about arbitrage, Amazon, and FBA also wanted to learn more about sourcing products at retail stores. For them, the book was unnecessarily long and that also added to the production cost of the book. So I rewrote the book, took out the retail sourcing stuff, and just called it Arbitrage. It was published in September of 2013. It was shorter and priced at just $9.95. It’s on Amazon here: You can read the reviews here: It’s an updated version of this original book. It’s only $9.95 and you get the Kindle copy for free with paperback purchase. Kindle copy is only $2.99 by itself, or you can read the Kindle copy for free if you are an Amazon Prime member.

More About the Author

When Chris Green talks, FBA sellers listen.

For the first time, Chris Green has compiled the complete, authoritative, and exhaustive manual outlining the Arbitrage business model.

This is the BLUEPRINT for buying products to sell online for BIG PROFITS.

Since 1999, Chris Green has been doing Retail Arbitrage, the business of buying items at retail stores and selling them online for a profit. From humble beginnings selling wrestling action figures on eBay, he has since perfected this low-risk, high-margin business model now known as Retail Arbitrage.

Using innovative and powerful programs like Amazon's fulfillment program called Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA), sellers can now remove time and space scaling restrictions that would have previously restricted their businesses. Sellers also now have access to the most complete mobile pricing data using ScanPower for iPhone and Android. Information is power and the sellers with the best information will make the best buying decisions and will be able to capitalize on all of the opportunities around them.

Join Chris as he explains every detail of this fascinating low-risk, high-margin business including HOW and WHY FBA works, the dynamics of inefficient marketplaces, and the psychology of the Amazon customer.

Arbitrage Definition:

The practice of taking advantage of a price difference between two or more markets, striking a combination of matching deals that capitalize upon the imbalance, the profit being the difference between the market prices.

I have been blessed, and I have built a retail arbitrage business over the last 3.5 years without anyone to show me the way. Today my company ships about 200 items a day, all with FBA. I have tried the FBAPower products in this book so I didn't need the information on what the products do and why they make selling on Amazon so much faster and easier. So in reading the book, I tried to take myself back to those days when I had no idea what I was doing and I looked for things that would help the average Amazon selling newbie.

The book's real value comes from;

#1 - A thorough explanation of what Retail Arbitrage is and why it works.

#2 - The variety of online resources and recommendations found throughout the book and in the back, many of which I still didn't know about until reading this book.

Over the last three years I have tried a few hundred times to explain what Retail Arbitrage is, usually to friends and family. Odd thing, each time I see them I have to explain it again. It simply is not a concept that most average joe's grasp. My family and my wife's family are well-educated, middle-class or better professionals and they simply DO NOT GET IT. It takes an ah-ha moment, and for me it was selling a $4.88 South Park plush toy to a buyer in the UK for $104 on eBay back in 2007. Without that ah-ha moment, the whole concept just never sinks in. I am grateful that Chris Green finally put it in a book because maybe, just maybe, I can get some folks to read it and our conversations at Christmas parties can be about something different.

What this book does not include -

Detailed explanation of the buy-box and it's impact on Amazon sales.

I've been selling on eBay for a little over a year. While it used to be fun to come home from my full-time job and discover that I'd made 10 sales that day, my excitement faded within a few months. After a workday spent writing computer code, the process of locating sold items in my portable Walmart closets, removing all the lint, folding, packaging, and printing labels has become -- let's just say -- more than a little tedious? After a short cruise this summer to the Bahamas, during which I happily freed myself from the bonds of my inventory after carefully turning on my eBay vacation settings, I came back home to find email from two irate buyers. That was the turning point. That was when I realized that I could not tolerate yet another year tethered to 3 portable closets of liquidated clothing, dealing with buyers who relentlessly nickel and dime me to death, all while submitting to arcane eBay policies that seem inexplicably designed to drive hard-working, well-intentioned sellers like me away.

I considered selling from my own storefront, but providing customer service to my potential buyers is an issue for me. I'm an introverted scientist, and even the limited exposure to buyers on eBay left me feeling anxious most of the time. As if I was always one unhinged buyer or one negative feedback away from losing my Top-Seller status.

Then I found out about Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA). It was the solution I'd been looking for. Sick of being constantly tethered to your inventory and dealing with insurmountable storage and time limitations? Just ship your inventory to Amazon and sell via FBA. Customer service and return processing? All taken care of with an army of Amazon reps. Not sure what to source?

I bought this book when it was selling for $97 and it is worth every penny of THAT purchase price! question is...why wouldn't EVERYBODY pick it up for this low Amazon price???

I knew I needed to find out what FBA was all about after being on eBay for years. The marketplace was clearly shifting but it seemed like such a switch from what was familiar that I kept putting it off. When this book was recommended during a broadcast I was listening to I bought it for 3 reasons:

1. The fact that Chris Green believes in what he has to say enough to put his phone number IN THE BOOK!

2. It came with a money-back guarantee (in case it was too good to be true!).

3. Maybe...just MAYBE this would be the tool I was looking for to branch into Amazon!

I read the book and applied what I learned and ....I sold more than $20,000 worth of toys alone from mid-November through Dec. 31, 2011!!! I was also able to sell many of them on eBay using multi-channel fulfillment. I started with a credit card that had $2000 available and kept turning it over for that 1 1/2 months!

I'm not a "hype" person but Chris Green's book has literally been life changing. I have more fun doing my job, more time to spend with my family, and more money! Am I - but I can see prosperity from where I'm standing right now.

Incidentally - my son (an Army Infantryman) was home for Christmas and decided to marry his girlfriend. We had 6 days to plan and PAY for a Christmas Eve wedding. I would NOT have had the money to help them if I hadn't begun my Retail Arbitrage career!

Thank you Chris Green and FBA Power! I cannot say it enough!
