How I *LEGALLY* Sell Name Brand Products on Amazon FBA

What is going on Amazon sellers or hopefully soon-to-be Amazon sellers in today’s video I want to discuss about the legal way on selling name-brand products on Amazon Now there’s what I bring up this video is because I actually get quite a bit of questions with people that I guess that are confused from other business models selling on Amazon mostly coming from I would say private label sellers and Also confusion from drop shippers and arbitrage sellers who get suspended a bunch Which throughout this video you’re gonna understand the reasons why? Arbitrage sellers and drop shippers get suspended so much. Now one thing I will say is Someone’s probably gonna put in the comments right now saying oh but there’s the first like sale rights rule Which what I’m using the term legal, I’m mostly using this So you actually click on the video and kind of click bait and you understand What im about to say, however, yes, if you buy a product in America, you are allowed to resell it off the first sale rule right, however Amazon is their own business and they have their own rules So what I’ll be going off of this video is making sure that you can sell Name-brand products and Amazon not saying that okay, you can go buy it from the dollar store And I’m not saying it’s illegal to go sell that but I’m saying that you may get suspended doing that. Okay? So now we have that clear Let me just clear up a couple of business models before I get into on the right way to pretty much sell name-brand products on Amazon So there’s a business model called private label and Amazon and that’s the business model where you’re creating up your own brands, and when you do that, you have to go create up your own listing now a big complaint from private label sellers is They get hijacked a lot. Meaning that people other sellers sell on their listing because if you go find a product from and just some generic Product you put your own name brand on it Well, someone else can go find that same exact product. And if a customer gets it, they probably don’t care about your brand so why would someone not hijack it and that’s where a lot of issues happen with private label sellers and a a big confusion gap where happens with this business model that I do when I’m selling name-brand products is because I don’t have to go create a New listing and I am allowed to go sell under the same exact listing. So what I am doing is not Hijacking. Am I clear on that? so this is going to lead to the first point on how I’m able to sell a name-brand products and not get in trouble and Do it the right way what’s down on Amazon? It’s because I’m sourcing from United States Suppliers now. Okay. Yes. Someone’s probably put in the comments right now saying okay Beau you’re sourcing from United States suppliers But everything’s made in China. Okay, let’s let’s get this clear what I mean USA suppliers I’m not saying that the products are made in the United States they could be but they could be made in China They can be in Taiwan. Indonesia can be made in America South America, but they’re distributed throughout the United States Now, what’s the difference here? Well, yes, if I’m gonna go sell Hasbro products and Amazon Hasbro they make their stuff in China, but I’m buying it from suppliers Who can distribute and wholesale out Hasbro products? So the difference here is if you go source from a Chinese wholesaler in China and other countries They don’t have copyright laws. So meaning they can sell you fake goods now it’s not legal for you Go sell those fake goods, but they can sell it to you. So to protect yourself making sure you’re sourcing legit Authentic real name-brand products you want to be sourcing for Unites States? Suppliers and one other tip on those lines if you think the prices are too good to be true Well it is it’s probably counterfeit. So now we have that clear. Let me go on to the second point I’m an authorized retailer for all the name brands I am selling what I mean by this is you could go find name-brand products at Goodwill Garage sales your house and things on those lines I actually had a speaker who does very well on Amazon and he has a very specific business model That’s totally different but it’s kind of complement to what I do. His name’s Jacob Schultz. He spoke at my Summit last December and he’ll probably be coming back again at this summit in March 14 15 if you actually haven’t got your tickets yet to the Summit on March 14 15. I definitely suggest looking that on the link down below, but he actually got suspended by selling an HP printer On Amazon. He just had the HP printer at his house he didn’t buy it from a supplier or anything on those lines and he sold it in Amazon asking for an invoice He was like, I don’t know I bought from my house. I don’t have an invoice and they suspended it so the difference here is what I’m doing is I’m buying from suppliers that give me an invoice because they’re legit business its resale and I don’t have to pay sales tax on it because I’m buying it with my Resellers permit and they give it to me they give me an invoice and if Amazon asked me for an invoice I had this invoice that shows I bought these products from this legit United States supplier. Does it make sense? So that’s the difference there So if you’re sourcing via arbitrage and you’re click on this video saying, oh Beau says I can’t legally do arbitrage No, I’m not saying that I’m saying with an Amazon’s rules. There’s a very high percent chance They’re going to suspend you because you don’t have a legit document saying you bought these a receipt from Walmart is not a legit Document and the last thing is that I am selling new products They’re in the new condition their new the tags, and they have the warranties on them How I’m selling on Amazon is the same exact way that Best Buy Target gamestop Walmart Costco how they sell Costco Walmart Target They’re all sourcing from United States suppliers. One misconception people have is they think that these? Big-box retailers are sourcing direct from the Chinese manufacturing plants Which in reality what’s actually going on as many of these brands? They don’t wholesale directly to retailers, they sell to distributors and then people buy from the distributors so with this I’m buying the goods exactly how Walmart gamestop on all these big-box retailers are doing so so it’s the same exact thing The issues that people can run into is when they’re buying for like liquidation companies sometimes closeout companies or their thing to find things off the truck is They’re not they might not have the warranties on of it. For example, I’ve Had a message come through my facebook one time and someone was tell me about how they were selling a bunch of these Xbox consoles and they got a return and when I Heard my youtube channel that if you get a bunch of returns You should try to go utilize the warranties So they want to go utilize the warranties, but then they realize that these warranty has already been used So pretty much what happens that the person? they were buying from obviously was not a legit supplier which in my course at, I go over and how to make Sure, your vending out the suppliers correctly. They bought them from this person and what what looks like what they did is they probably took in the products used or they replace them and fix them up and they already had expired warranties on them and when the person bought them and try to sell on Amazon and use the warranties there weren’t he’s already been used because they’re not a Completely hundred percent new product now. The Xbox was probably a new condition It was in the new packaging but since the warranties are not legit. It doesn’t make it a new 100% product So people gets this you want to get suspended doing that but the products not necessarily new and customer complaints if they try to utilize the warranties But with me I buy them their new new and tags new in the box news and warranties exactly how you would buy in this Store and that’s pretty much it so I actually made a very similar video to this and I actually have got a lot of negative comments and feedback on that video because I pretty much Rambled on a bunch and spoke really really fast. So if you’ve seen that video and now you’re watching this one Let me know if you thought this one was a lot better, but just to sum it up Well, you want to sell name-brand products on Amazon. You have to do it like a legit business run your business exactly how a big-box retailer like Game Stop Target Costco Walmart does I’m doing the same exact thing as them and Again, this is a real business. So I’m gonna treat it like a real business and that’s about it So if you have any questions at all, feel free to drop them down below in the comments I’ll respond to you Feel free to follow me on instagram at @beaucrabill If you are a student of mine and my amazon course I highly suggest to check out the online retail summit that is happening on March 14th and 15th We officially have the exact location of the event It’s right before the ASD tradeshow and keep in mind the summits in Las Vegas Literally the place we’re gonna be at is very very close to the Convention Center So it’s gonna be a very good use of your time You want more in info about that for you to click the link down below, but that’s about it.

  1. In the year and a half that I've been selling on Amazon, I've never been suspended. Wholesale is the way to go!!! Thanks Beau for the Great Content!!

  2. I agree with everything you are saying, however there are ppl on here who are not on that level of purchasing from distributors like you are. It takes time and patience or you can just save your money up until you get to the level financially to purchase a large MOQ because trust and believe me there will be one. Oh and let's not forget you have to apply with these distributors to purchase wholesale from them, and that's providing if they don't mind you selling on Amazon or they have enough whole accounts of ppl already selling on Amazon.

  3. Thanks Beau I did see that other video and was like "is this kid on speed" lol but I appreciate you doing the video. I think must of us would love to know how you go about building those relationships with suppliers especially if your buy isn't anywhere near the amount of the big boxes that are dealing with those suppliers.

  4. In the course do you teach us how to have the wholesaler ship it to amazon if we don’t have the space for the inventory? Also do you help us locate markets that aren’t full of other fba? Been doing some product research while waiting on something’s to be processed and there are so many areas that covered up with multiple fba. Anyway I could talk to about the course before I sign up? Sorry for the questions, just wondering if I should make the investment

  5. I amend you for sticking to speaking strictly facts and not getting worked up about people who don't fully understand. Thank you.

  6. Sup buddy so if I wanted to buy shoes brand new in box from let's say Marshall's and I have the receipt will I get suspended from amazon

  7. Thanks for making this video Beau. I didn't watch the old video to know why you got complaints, but this one was simple and to the point. I get ads popping up from you on Facebook LOL. But it's OK. I'm going to spend time to watch your YouTube channel videos to get up to speed before planning on making the jump over to this business model.

  8. Hi,would your business model work in Canada?and if I do well with a product what is to prevent the wholesaler to bypass me and sell on amazon ?

  9. I think you made it clear about what your doing. But some people just don’t get it because they don’t have business or retail experience yet.

  10. Beau Crabill
    So you’re saying that If an item such as Nike shoes that is banned for private sellers on amazon. Is listed and bought directly from Nike or any distributors in the US as brand new. Then I myself or any other private seller can post and sell it on amazon? Even though Amazon states that no one can sell Nike, Reebok etc.? Thanks!

  11. Yo Beau What Summit? Las Vegas on March 14 and 15th you never say it in the video don't see a link below good video though Beau thx

  12. How can resellers get invoices for brand new sealed items that are several years old dated within the last 365 days?

  13. I love every video you put out. You are an inspiration to me, and you help mentor me to success. Thanks for all you do buddy!

  14. Beau, I'm tired of being nervous and i want to jump the fence to get into your course to start my buisness. If i don't have the capital to get everything in cash, is is feasible to use credit card to at least get started so i can earn that money back and pay for it that way? Or should i wait to save the approx $3k to start everything?

  15. Are you saying that it's just a matter off time that these dropshipers on Amazon from these big box stores we'll be suspended because they have receipts not invoices? I'm just asking because some of these dropshipers have been doing this for some time and are doing well. Has amazon changed their policies?

  16. Beau, i heard that distributors don't like to work with and approve international sellers to sell on this true?? hope not whole reason why i want to buy your course.

  17. I clicked this strictly to argue the "legal" part of your title and you address is right away damn you! click bait FTW

  18. OW ! I’m spending the day working and listening to your really interesting videos with earphones, but your voice is at one volumn snd the music is so much louder that have to pull out the earphones. Great content though!

  19. I create a special kit on my listing to include a free product but I still got hijacked on my listing and I know the hijakers didn't have the free necklace.

  20. Just to add, I've had to write letters to Amazon on behalf of my customers that got suspended for selling licensed goods. I was a Key Account Manager at a manufacturer of licensed products. Now I also sell on Amazon.

  21. Do legit distributors require a small timer like me to buy $100k worth of product? Surely, they won't sell me just 15 of anything.??

  22. Beau what if I cannot make it to the summit, will the course be available for purchase as an online course?

    Also, is this the same content as the one offered at the end of your webinar from the 25th?

  23. Beau, there’s a lot of other business models on selling online. Can a capable person make a lot more money using the other models?


  25. There are so many teaching RA & hardly any of them talk about the fact that Amazon will shut down folks eventually if they are not purchasing from legitimate suppliers. Lack of knowledge will definitely get people into trouble. It's such a shame these so called Amazon gurus are taking advantage of people. Keep up the good work Beau. Your honesty & integrity will sustain you in the long run.

  26. Hi Beau! I have seen a bunch of your video today and I'm very interested to enroll in your course.. just a few questions.. I live in Ireland and I prefer to sell FBA in the stated rather than in amazon UK (with brexit looming IDK how is that gonna impact the business..), is it possible to sell in Amazon US if I am based in Ireland? if so, is it possible to get resellers permits, LLC and stuff from where I live? thanks in advanced!

  27. thanks for the information its very informative information I like how you break down the rules and dont sugar coat anything for the amazon breakdown thanks alot I look forward to your webinars and videos to come

  28. Hey Beau is it true that after a long time of selling on Amazon (6 months or so) you can get automatically ungated on big name products.

  29. Where does someone find USA based wholesalers, distributors, etc? I dont have my own business but it sounds like something I might be interested in doing if I can find distributors, wholesalers, etc that offer goods I can resell for a decent profit.

  30. Ok that’s sounds like a great idea 💡 help me out how do I get in touch with a name brand supplier
