First product

Post by Falpic » Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:10 pm

HI Crescent,

I've found a product to sell which is not on Amazon.
However, my budget is tight and I was looking for advise on the following.

Can I use the china companies present artwork and put my own barcode on the product, so I can build up some capital?
Or do I use their barcode and just sell the product as it is?
Third option is to save more money and negotiate with the supplier to change artwork on a low MOQ.

Obviously the third option would be best, but what about options one and two?

Hope you can advise.

Regards,

Falpic

If you're doing private label, you need to buy your own barcode. This video goes over it:

HI Crescent,

I'm confused. If I buy a pre boxed product from the manufacturer in China, with their artwork and their product name on it, can I use their barcode to produce a fnsku and sell it on amazon?
If I did it this way, is this now arbitrage, rather than private/white labeling?
Is it allowed?

Obviously I don't want to get banned before I start, so to speak.

Ian
