Selling Professional Services on Amazon
Amazon is quickly becoming the most popular way to buy and sell goods on the Internet. Now, Amazon is taking steps to make it easy for people to sell their professional services online as well. Some of the professional services that may be included are house cleaners, landscapers, electricians, tutoring services, and more. Amazon’s app allows potential customers to view the services that are available in their area on a map. This makes it easy for customers to choose the jobs closest to them that are available to fit their schedule.
It is important to know that not all professional services can be sold on Amazon. Any person interested in utilizing this tool will have to submit an application that will be reviewed to determine if this is a good fit. Once you have been accepted into the program, you will only pay about 10 percent of the revenue for the jobs you have completed if the services are recurring. Recurring services include house cleaning, landscaping, and other services that take place on a regular basis. Custom services are a little different.
Custom services are a little different. These are usually one-time services such as electrician work or construction work. You will be required to pay Amazon 15 percent of the revenue for up to $1,000. Any portion over than $1,000 will require you to give Amazon 10-percent of the revenue. Additionally, these prices will vary for pre-packaged services as well.
If you have questions about becoming an Amazon seller for any professional services that you may offer, speak with someone who understands the inner workings of selling on Amazon.
