You might be convinced that selling shoes on Amazon can be a profitable addition to your Amazon business model, but you may still be asking, “What are the best strategies and methods for sourcing profitable shoes?”
Since my last two interview videos (here and here) with Rebecca were so well received, I decided to sit down with her and record another Q&A interview video with her focused on sourcing shoes to sell on Amazon. Rebecca has such a wealth of knowledge about sourcing and selling shoes, and you’ll learn a lot in this video.
In the video below, you’ll learn:
- Our buying parameters for sourcing profitable shoes
- The best shoe sizes we like to source
- How the number of shoes we sell per month impacts our business
- Are shoe accessories (shoe racks, laces, shoe polish, etc) a profitable niche?
- How to increase your chances that the shoes you buy will sell quickly
- What’s better – sourcing shoes brand new to the market or older shoes?
- How Keepa helps us source even though Keepa doesn’t give the sales rank history of shoe variations
- The types of shoes we’ll never buy to resell on Amazon
- And more!
Watch and enjoy the video.
Have you ever tried to source for shoes on Amazon? What was your experience like? Do you prefer retail sourcing or online sourcing when it comes to shoes? Have any questions about sourcing shoes? Leave us a comment below if you have a specific shoe question, and we’ll see about addressing that in a future blog post or video.
The #1 way we source shoes to sell on Amazon is via online arbitrage.
If you want to add or improve your existing online arbitrage (OA) sourcing skills, then check out our course: The Reseller’s Guide to Online Arbitrage: Grow Your Amazon FBA Business With Online Sourcing Profits.
The course is a combination video course (5+ hours of OA training) and a 100+ page ebook. The videos and book both share the exact same content (so you can pick the format you most like to learn from). The course also comes with six time-saving and money-making bonuses all at no additional charge!
Do you always sell your shoes on amazon via FBA?
Stephen Smotherman says
We are 100% FBA when it comes to selling shoes. We think paying Amazon to store, box up, and ship the shoes to the customer is well worth the fees they charge. Plus, FBA sellers usually get the buy box over merchant fulfilled customers, so FBA stored shoes are more likely to be sold than MF shoes. I hope this helps.
Rebecca mentioned she sources shoes via OA snd uses the Keepa charts heavily…is there a way to see the Keepa chart on the actual product page or only once you’ve plugged the information over into Amazon to look at the product details there??
Stephen Smotherman says
Keepa has a chrome extension where you can see the Keepa graph on the Amazon product page, but there’s not a way to put the Keepa graph on the shoe sales pages on other sites.
She uses Tactical Arbitrage and they will link the Keepa graphs to the shoes so you can see it linked that way. If you’re not using TA yet, here is a link to get an extended 10-day trial: https://www.fulltimefba.com/TA Coupon code FULLTIME10
I hope this helps.
