Hi Nikki, very good video, I'm a new subscriber, and please I have question about the labels. Do you need labels for the box that contain all the items that you buy? If it's so, what kind of sticker paper do you need for those labels? Because I know that the stickers you showed on this video are for each item that will go inside the box. Regards and thanks!

@Nikki Kirk thank you for replying. Like I said I am still new to this. Love your channel

Hey Eric, because profit is PROFIT. It’s the money you make after you pay all the fees to Amazon and make your cost of goods back. So I sold it all made back the $320 and after the fees to Amazon and shipping made $266

Thank you for all of the information! I’ve been working in retail management for 3 decades and now looking into Retail Arbitrage. If you ever visit California, watch your belongings closely. I hold my handbag a certain way here. Unfortunately the Democrat “leadership” in California hate anyone law abiding and encourage people to cheat&steal.

Do you only have to put the one barcode? I had started last year and was stuck on the barcodes. Also, are you shipping these directly to amazon? If so, do you have a video that goes through that? THanks!

This is very "bottom feeder" and Amazon FBA is too high of capital needed to start. I'm looking for something in between and can't find the right niche.

I’m so confused 😭 you spent more of what you’re profiting, so are you really profiting?
Nikki Kirk

Sorry you’re confused. So profit is AFTER all the costs to buy and sell it. I’m showing you cost I paid and profit after fees. Yes I am profiting

Can you find clearance product on Walmart’s website? The reason i’m asking it is because wouldn’t it save me time if I can find product online and research the product at home on all the softwares you use; and then head to the store? Another question I have is; do you ever talk to an associate or a manager to find out what could be hot in the toy section?

You can but I wouldn’t long term, just when you’re starting because the individual isn’t eligible for buy box. Plus the more you sell you’ll probably start to pay more in fees

use "brickseek" , its free, and look for items locally or online , don't pay to people like her to teach you how to do it , it's really easy.

Actually brickseek is garbage and most people know that. No one should pay for anything they don’t need in their business…that should be obvious. This video is free by the way, not sure if you understood that what you were watching is free content. Thanks for your comment anyways.

Charlotte West

How are you figuring profit? Does the Walmart app show what the normal price is on the app and the shelf price a lower price? Is the regular price what you sell it for? Do you also sell worldwide? Do you ever have to pay for shipping and if so, how do you do that for amazon?
Charlotte West

I thought that if you sell on amazon, you have to ship items to amazon warehouses, not the post office.

So you want the rank to be low? Why? What do you mean by get ungated? What does it mean when your gated? How do I get ungated from certain categories? How much is your BOLO group? Do you take the picture to scan it on the barcode or the front of the box? What is your number for how much money you make before tax?

I never understood this, if there’s already a barcode why do you have to print another barcode and put it over the original. I’m so confused on why that needs to be done. Please explain to me, thank you!

You don't HAVE to for most items, BUT your inventory will be co-mingled with other sellers. If that's okay, then don't create another barcode.

Hi I’m starting my business I had watched so many videos 99% of them confusing, but bump into your video and omg you are so good at explaining, thank you so much for helping others with your videos.. now I have some questions hope you can answer, I have some products to ship to amazon can I use those white color shipping bags, (same as the ones you’re packing your items but white) put the label outside of the bag? Is there any problem with amazon if the item is not visible but ready for them to ship in case it sales? TIA

This is all so fascinating/new to me...I can't believe I'm just learning about this! I've been a full-time rv'er for three years now always struggling with ways to make money on the road. This seems perfect! I love to shop and hit the clearance aisles when I'm on the road. I've found awesome deals and often thought how I could make money on them if I knew how/where to resell them. Thank you for all the information! I will likely be joining your Bohol group once I go through the selling family training. 😀

How did you resell Walmart items on Amazon if you bought items with a Walmart receipt?? You need an INVOICE Viewers: receipts and invoices ARE NOT THE SAME THING. This lady is getting WM receipts, I HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE, YOU WILL GET BANNED!!

Just curious, if you find a product you like and its selling well will you buy all of the stock from the store? And would it be better to do FBM if you're not buying in bulk?(Less than say 25 units of the same product) Also how are you getting your product to sell with no reviews on amazon or anything
Johanna 6 aylar önce
Just starting out. Since I am gated figured I would start with baby clothing and/or home. In terms of clothing, do I need to pack each item individually? If I have 10 baby outfits does each one need to have its own individual packaging and bar code?

@Nikki Kirk thank you so much foe your prompt response. I’ve been binge watching your videos and they are so helpful. Keep up the great work
Nikki Kirk

Hey Johanna! Yes, each one needs its own bag and label unless you’re selling it as a 10 pack (I’m assuming not) amazon will send the item to the customer as you send it in so it needs to be packed and ready for customers

So you basically don’t get paid until your products sell because I’ve been seeing lots of video on TickTock people saying you just go to the store and scan the product and ship it to the Amazon warehouse I thought that was it. and you get paid as soon as you ship it to the warehouse so I just want to get clear when you get actually paid?
Nikki Kirk

No, the product has to sell and then you get paid after the customer receives it
