Retail Arbitrage on AMAZON FBA vs MERCHANT FULFILLED Shipping to Sell Products Fast!

Retail Arbitrage on AMAZON FBA vs MERCHANT FULFILLED Shipping to Sell Products Fast!

A week before Christmas and no time to send inventory to FBA, can Merchant fulfilled shipping on Amazon save the day?

I typically use Amazon FBA to sell my retail arbitrage products, but sometimes it makes sense to sell them using the merchant fulfilled option. This allows me to bypass the 7-14 days it can take for your product to make it to an Amazon fulfillment center.

This is very useful when you want to sell a hot product before everyone else jumps in to sell it! Many times you can sell a fast moving item minutes after finding it.



I’m Wick and I am a reseller for a living. I find things at garage sales, thrift stores, and even clearance at retail stores to sell. I do online arbitrage, retail arbitrage, and buy locally. While the majority of my business is done through Amazon FBA, I also sell on eBay or anywhere else I can flip the junk that I find.

I also trade stocks and futures, do affiliate marketing, and Merch by Amazon to make money online. My goal is to live a free life away from the typical 9-5 job.

Subscribe and join me on my adventures to see what I can find to make some dollars.

A: I do. All my bills are covered, I’m able to save a good amount, and put money back into the business. I also do other things to make money, but reselling is the meat. It takes a lot of work and dedication to make a full-time living reselling.

  1. Distributor to get ungated in tools category? Or brand’s

  2. Not going to lie I miss selling on Amazon, stuff went quick and made more.

  3. What the hell? I set up an FBA sellers account 3 years or so ago and had such a bad taste I just walked away from it. Initially I shipped in a dozen older Barbi dolls still in original boxes and they were misidentified and banned by Amazon. That coupled with their ridiculously long list of new brands that were banned without licensing such as Disney, Mattel and so on.. Have they loosened up on that for the sake of retail arbitrage?

  4. Great video explaining the differences for Amazon – thanks it was very helpful.

  5. Q Q

    It is so difficult to ship stuff to Amazon with batteries included!

  7. I hope you wound up being able to take some time off, but it looks like delaying your time off was worth it 😀 Thank you for sharing!!

  8. Thanks… Some of this FBM information I’ve been wanting to know for some time. Do you get to decide the service being used to ship (UPS or USPS), or are you told. Is there a way to find shipping cost or you learn from experience? I have some fragile items I’m questioning if Fulfillment centers will not destroy.

  9. I was able to buy 4 cases of handheld Radica solitaire/poker handhelds cheap and made a lot of money on them. 🙂

  10. I just started looking at Amazon selling and it seems like every product I want to sell has "request for approval" to sell. How do you get around that?

  11. Do you check if you can sell a particular item on FBA so that you don't have an IP claim from the manufacterer or do you just pick the item up and sell it anyway?

  12. week before Christmas? checks calendar Huh. lol.
