When Chris Green talks, FBA sellers listen.

Since 1999, Chris Green has been doing Arbitrage, the business of buying items at retail stores and selling them online for a profit. From humble beginnings selling wrestling action figures on eBay, he has since perfected this low-risk, high-margin business model now known as Retail Arbitrage.

Using innovative and powerful programs like Amazon's fulfillment program called Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA), sellers can now remove time and space scaling restrictions that would have previously restricted their businesses. Sellers also now have access to the most complete mobile pricing data using FBAScout for iPhone and Android. Information is power and the sellers with the best information will make the best buying decisions and will be able to capitalize on all of the opportunities around them.

Join Chris as he explains every detail of this fascinating low-risk, high-margin business including HOW and WHY FBA works, the dynamics of inefficient marketplaces, and the psychology of the Amazon customer.

Are you ready for the FOURTH QUARTER?
Take a look at how your sales will spike leading up to Christmas.

The fourth quarter, sometimes called Q4, is the common term for the last three months of the year. It includes the Christmas shopping season, which will see a huge surge in retail sales (both in store and online). Don’t let the fourth quarter sneak up on you! Be prepared to take advantage of the huge opportunities that the fourth quarter brings every year.

The following images are screenshots are from our actual Amazon payouts from Q4 2009 and Q4 2010. You’ll see an increase leading up to December 25th and then you’ll see a sales decline. This happens every year as the Q4 spike in sales comes back down to normal levels.

You’ll also see the returns increase. This will happen to you after Christmas as well, so don’t be alarmed. It just comes with the territory of selling in any kind of serious volume. Buyers purchased many of these items for gifts, and some are returned. Many of your returns will go straight back into sellable inventory. Remember, you can only get a lot of returns if you sell a lot of stuff!
