4 things you need to know before you start profiting from Amazon
Before you start in any way to profit from Amazon there are some important things that you have to keep in mind first, which will save you a lot of trouble in the near future.
1. Strict Amazon Laws
Amazon is a giant company, as you know, and in order to preserve its reputation, position, and the quality of the services it provides, it has made strict laws that anyone who cooperates with it must abide by.
For example, look at the laws of the Amazon Affiliate Program - which we will talk about later - which stipulate not to use social media or email directly.
Meaning that you cannot promote Amazon products through your affiliate link directly by placing them on social media pages, or sending them in emails to your followers, but you can put these links on YouTube or your website pages.
This ensures that Amazon does not promote its products in a crude or excessive way (Spam), in order to maintain its image in front of consumers.
That's why I advise you, whichever method you will rely on, you have to read their laws (Terms and Services) very carefully so as not to get into any trouble.
2. Receive your earnings from Amazon
Amazon is an American company, and although it allows anyone in the world to be a part of its programs and services, receiving your earnings from them is not easy.
In order for Amazon to save as much money as possible in terms of fees and currency exchange, it only deals with banks, not with banking services such as PayPal when transferring money to its collaborators.
That is why the best way for you to receive your earnings from Amazon as long as you live in the Arab world is to have a Payoneer account because it will save you a lot.
This service provides you with a free US bank account, which you can receive your money on from any company in the world, and it also provides you with a credit card so that you can withdraw this money anywhere in your local currency.
There are many videos and explanations for linking your Payoneer account to your Amazon account, so that the Payoneer company itself has prepared a detailed explanation that you will find in the link below:
3. Tax system
In order to receive your profits from Amazon, whatever the type of way you deal (whether you are a seller or a marketer), you must provide some documents, especially those related to taxes.
Don't worry, it's simple, you are not a US citizen, all you have to do is fill out some documents in order to prove that you are not a US citizen, and for Amazon expenses to be listed in the IRS legally.
Therefore, during the registration process and in order to receive your earnings from Amazon, you will have to fill out a document called W8 - BEN, which you will also find the link to and all the instructions and personal information that you must provide when registering with Amazon.
It's simple and easy as I told you, it's just a routine to confirm your identity and organize Amazon's revenue process.
And advice … keep this document when you fill in all the data, because you will need it if you cooperate with most American companies, especially if you work in the field of commission marketing.
4. Amazon in the Arab markets
I think you know that Amazon acquired the famous Souq store in the first half of 2017 for about $ 580 million, in order to enter the Arab markets.
Not only that, last May, the Souq website in the UAE switched to Amazon.ae, and the same is expected to happen with the Souq website in Egypt soon.
You may ask yourself why am I telling you all this information… or what does all this have to do with profit from Amazon, the reason is to highlight a very important point.
Most of the ways to profit from Amazon that you will find in this guide can be applied directly in the Arab markets. For example, the commission marketing method I mentioned to you earlier can be applied to the Amazon site in the UAE, and also to the Egyptian market site.
Not only that, there are several ways to profit from Amazon, which I will not mention to you in this guide, because you cannot subscribe to them as they are available in specific countries such as America and Canada.
These methods include shipping products and assisting Amazon by providing some services, and because Amazon is entering the Arab market strongly, this means that these methods may become available soon.
That is why you have to follow Amazon news in the Arab market constantly, and if any new way to profit appears, we will add it to this guide, so that it remains a reference for everyone looking for ways to profit from Amazon.

I think that you are now aware of how to profit from Amazon through affiliate marketing, and you have all the tools and information needed to get started at the earliest opportunity.
2. Profit from Amazon by printing T-shirts
This is one of the simplest ways to profit from Amazon and it is called ( Merch By Amazon ), and it depends on the printing of T-shirts on demand (Print On Demand).
You create different t-shirt designs (for example, t-shirts for a specific event like football), and when anyone wants to buy them, Amazon prints the t-shirt and delivers it to the customer.
The price of T-shirts depends on its type, but it is very cheap, as it starts from $15.99 and can reach $25.99. Amazon gets the largest percentage because it is the one who prints and delivers, and you get a percentage (from 11 to 13%) of the value of the T-shirt.
That is why if you are a designer, or you have knowledge of someone who understands T-shirt designs (it is very simple and you can learn it yourself if you are a beginner), or you can hire a professional designer through freelance platforms , this method is very profitable.
There are a lot of companies and services that you can sign up for in order to profit from designing t-shirts, but you have to promote your designs in order to get sales.
As for Amazon, it is a large market that millions of people enter every day, and all you have to do is have good designs that people love, and describe them accurately. You will learn this yourself when you are accepted into this service from Amazon) to start profiting.
Amazon print software features
1. You must apply to be accepted. All you have to do is enter a name, a location, and some information about your experience and designs.
2. The review of acceptance of applications does not have a specific time.
3. In order to be accepted, you must show that you have experience and passion in this field, for this website you are applying for must be related to design.
You can use your profile on a design site like Redbubble (a T- shirt sale site where you can try and learn the same method), or Behance (a site for design experts in the world).
In the additional information part, you have to choose your words very carefully, show your expertise, and how you go about the design process in order to get the applicant reviewer to believe in you…Imagine that you are in a job interview.
4. When you are accepted you cannot place more than 10 designs, and after you sell 10 sales, the limit is increased to 25, and the more you sell, the more designs Amazon allows you… This system is called Tiers.
5. You should research and check to know all the conditions for good designs that Amazon provides you with when registering, and also to search for the best-selling designs on Amazon in order to be inspired by successful designs.
This method of profit from Amazon is very good, because the effort required of it is focused on finding good designs, and after achieving success, you can build your own store using different platforms such as Shopify or Woocommerce to achieve higher profits.
In that case, you can rely on paid traffic and build your own brand, as many professionals in this field have done.
3. Profit from Amazon through e-books
Many people love to read books constantly, and due to the age of technology we live in today, you can read many books on your phone or computer at the lowest possible price, so that you can listen to them (audio books) if you do not have the time.
Because Amazon started as a book and print store, the Amazon Kindle is one of the oldest and best ways to make money from Amazon if you love to write.
By the way, you can hire anyone to write a book for you if you are good at marketing, and this is what many of those who rely on this method do.
You can apply to Kindle Direct Publishing , where your books are reviewed, and electronic and hard copies are made available upon request. All you have to do is read the terms and instructions.
The review process itself does not have a specific time, and you can publish books in any field or even in any language, and there are many Arabic books by the way.
This method is very effective if you have some followers through a website, social media account, or even a YouTube channel to promote your books and get initial sales.
The advantage of this method is that the higher your book sales and ratings, the higher your book will be in search results for the topic it is talking about, and thus the more sales you will get.
That is why I advise you to start and try this method yourself, it is very profitable and low risk.
4. Profit from Amazon by selling products
This method is the most difficult to profit from Amazon, because it requires a lot of experience and capital to be able to test and experiment, and despite that it is a very profitable method and has made a lot of millionaires.
Amazon is a very large mall on the Internet, in the mall anyone can open a simple store and start selling their products, taking advantage of the large number of people who visit this mall every day, provided that they make an agreement with the mall management.
This is a simple example of an Amazon store, it is made up of many sellers and owners of different products and brands, who sell their products in what is called Amazon FBA.
Most of these sellers import products from China after packaging and preparing them in a specific way, and then send them to Amazon warehouses, which handles the shipping for you.
Of course, there are global brands that depend on Amazon, there are factory owners and companies everywhere in the world, who only take advantage of Amazon traffic to get sales, not all sellers rely on importing products from China.
By the way, if you manufacture or make any product or handicrafts, you can sell them in your country using electronic stores such as Souq (which owns Amazon as indicated earlier) and Jumia in Egypt.
This method is not for beginners, and requires a relatively large capital, because you have to search for products in order to choose a new and suitable product in order to be able to overcome the fierce competition in Amazon.
Then after that you need to contact the suppliers and factory owners in China (through many websites and the most famous one is Alibaba.com) and ask them for trial samples.
Then you test these products on Amazon or through paid traffic to know the reactions of people, then you order certain quantities of this product and send them to Amazon.
Then you shoot the product or make videos and put together a description and product features (whatever you see on any product page on Amazon) so you can compete properly.
So if you are an expert in marketing, or you have at least 1000 dollars that you can risk to learn, you may lose it in several months and not win anything, I advise you to give it a try.
There are a lot of experts in this field from Arabs on YouTube that you can learn from or contact them for help.
5. Profit from Amazon by freelancing
This is one of the smartest ways to profit from Amazon at all, which not much is known about… If you look closely at all the previous methods, you will find that they require a certain work or skill.
Let me give you some examples:
- Professionally designed t-shirts.
- Write articles for product reviews on Amazon or professional comparisons.
- Amazon website design.
- Searching for keywords to lead search results, whether within Amazon, or for sites that profit from affiliate marketing.
- Writing e-books professionally.
- Professional writing of product descriptions and features for posting on Amazon.
- Designing promotional videos for Amazon products.
- Research various products to see the best opportunities to sell new products.
- Professional photography of products to display on Amazon.
- Designing logos and artwork for sellers to use in the packaging of their products.
Therefore, if you have one of these skills, you can take advantage of the various freelance sites, and offer these services and allocate them only to Amazon.
If you go to one of these sites (such as Fiverr or Upwork) and type in Amazon search, a lot of services will appear in front of you that you can emulate (and by the way, this proves how effective this method is to profit from Amazon and the volume of demand for it).
Another thing I want to show you is, if you're a bit of an expert on Amazon, or you really want to be able to use Amazon, you should use Jungle scout.
This platform offers a lot of tools to facilitate the work of professional sellers and affiliate marketers who rely on Amazon, because it provides them with a lot of information, research tools and sales volume of various products.
This platform, at the beginning of this year, launched a freelance site for Amazon only , so I advise you to take a look at it to know the required skills and also the size of the profits.
And if you are an expert in your field, or after you have achieved some successes on different freelance sites, you can apply to work on this platform, especially since it offers excellent prices unlike many other sites.
6. Profit from Amazon by investing
This is the last way to profit from Amazon in this guide is to invest money in buying stocks, you can do it from anywhere in the world.
Amazon's share price is largely fixed, and it increases with time, so if you have some money that you can use instead of saving it in a traditional way, you can invest in Amazon.
Of course, it takes some knowledge to determine the best times to buy, when to sell, or perhaps you buy a certain number of shares and hold them for a year or two and then sell.
And you should know that the share price of Amazon is high (approximately $2000), due to the company's strength, high profitability, and reputation in the market, which led to investors flock to it.
There are a lot of people who want to profit from the Internet , and profit from Amazon, that giant entity, is one of the best ways anyone can start.
Do not waste time, because every second you are late, the competition increases and the rules change, so choose one of the previous methods based on your skill and start right away.
