1. Do I need a lot of money to start this Amazon business?
No. Traditional ecommerce requires us to pay for website design which can be in the hundreds or thousands. Even dropshipping requires us to spend thousands on advertising to reach customers. By partnering wth Amazon, we will get free website and easily reach 300 million active customers on Amazon. Because of these benefits, the recommended amount is a few hundred dollars to start.

2. Do we need a lot of time to do this Amazon business?
If we do traditional ecommerce, most of our time is in logistics, warehousing, delivery, customer service, and many more. If we do dropshipping, we spend lots of time running advertising to reach customers. However, by partnering with Amazon, they handle logistics, warehousing, delivery, and even customer service for us. They also have over 300 million customers for us to tap on. This allows us to be able to do Amazon business part-time even, as they handle almost all of the administrative work for us.
3. Are we able to sell to Indonesia market?
If we want to sell in Indonesia, we can consider selling on local ecommerce sites. However, we partner with Amazon, and sell to customers mainly in USA, because US has a much bigger population, bigger market demand, bigger customer database. When we earn, we are also earning in US Dollars, which give us higher returns than Indonesian rupiah.
4. I have no IT skills or technical knowledge. Can I sell on Amazon?
Yes, that’s the reason why Amazon is the best platform to start our ecommerce business. We can list our products on Amazon without knowing any programming or website design skills. We don’t have to worry about payment system, website hosting, or even website security, as everything will be handled by Amazon for us. If we do our own ecommerce store or dropshipping, we need to design our own website, and all other complicated technicalities.
