Have you considered selling on Amazon.com, but think it’s too complicated or just aren’t sure how to get started?  Maybe you’ve tried selling on Amazon.ca only to find the sales are slow to non-existent and shipping costs are eating all of your profits?  If so, then this guide is for you.

My 58 page quick start guide gives everything you need to know to get up and running selling on Amazon.com.  In fact, I wish someone had written this guide for me when I got started!  And it includes 3 Bonuses to help you fast track your success!  It’s written SPECIFICALLY FOR CANADIANS.

The Problem
Like many Canadians, I started out selling on Amazon.ca and wanted to grow my sales into a full time income.  Unfortunately, I quickly discovered that the market was too small and the fees really ate into my profits.  Worse, the shipping costs in Canada are killer!  I knew I needed to grow my business by expanding onto Amazon.com.  But it seemed like such a monumental step, with all kinds of barriers, rules, and uncertainty of how to get started.  I spend hours researching on my own, and asking a lot of questions to learn more.

The Solution and Results
I finally figured out enough to get going and start selling on Amazon.com, and made my first sale in February, 2015.  I never looked back!  Just four months later, I’d grown my sales to a point where I was officially making a full time income!  It took a lot of effort, research and mistakes along the way.  But I’m happy to report that my sales are stronger than ever and I’m still a full time active seller on Amazon, working part-time hours!  Our Canadian dollar has weakened significantly against the USD and there’s never been a better time to be paid in US dollars while living in Canada!*
