Retail Arbitrage FBA from Walmart – What is selling TODAY on Amazon? Beginner Basics.

Retail Arbitrage FBA from Walmart – What is selling TODAY on Amazon? Beginner Basics.

Hey guys! Here’s the first of many more “Day in the life” style sourcing videos as a full time Amazon FBA seller. We basically want to take you behind the scenes to show you what it’s like to scan and source at stores. Today I bring you some Walmart footage and show you exactly what I found, and exactly how much I’ll be making from these items.

Some days you’ll find a lot, and some days you wont. Scanning and sourcing is an acquired skill just like anything else. I’ve been doing this almost 4 years, and it’s my full time job… so I’m pretty darn good at it. Amazon is NOT easy… but it is VERY simple. Just scan… do the math… and repeat.

All in all, I spent about 2.5 hours shopping today. I spent about $1,000. I will sell those products for ~4,600. And my Net profit after everything is said and done will be about $1750… Not bad for half a days work! After buying all this stuff I will need to ship it off to Amazon (Though we’ve hired employees to do this for us). That process wont take too long, and it’s already been outsourced and accounted for in my math 🙂

Lots of people have been asking what tools I use to scan. There are 2 main things I use:

Scoutify two (which comes free with Inventory Lab). bit.ly/HustleIL
And Keepa. https://bit.ly/HBKeepa

You don’t HAVE to have these tools to start, but they are incredibly valuable to my business and I highly recommend them.

We’ve done lots of other videos in the past showing various part of how to do Amazon FBA for beginners, so be sure to check out the rest of our channel!

And lastly, we have an incredible community of sellers over on Facebook. Come join in on the conversation 🙂 Facebook.com/groups/hustlebuddies

  3. Thanks mate, nice video. Could you please let me know how to get an invoice in Walmart which I can use to get the approval on Amazon to sell that product ? Thanks again

  4. I sell at Amazon but swore not to sell food especially Pringles. Hard for me to sell something that have an expiration date. Sometimes they have Pringles at Ralphs at $1 each so why would someone pay so much for them in Amazon? Shipping and storage would eat up most of your profit plus if the main company decides they don't want you to sell their products on Amazon that is it.

  40. I am selling on amazon but do not have a registered brand and still learning. Two questions… #1, do you have to have a registered brand on Amazon to sell arbitrage..& #2 Do you not get complaints for the other registered brands for selling their products on Amazon. I have approached manufactures and it was specified I could not sell their products on Amazon. Thanks!

  41. Do you have to actually sell it to make the profit or just sell it to Amazon?
