Sell Groceries on Amazon – Profit Proof (Copy Me)

I've been crushing it by selling groceries on Amazon,  thanks to Jessica Larrew's just-released course, 'Grocery Goldmine'. Woman checking food labelling

I'm finding cake mixes, condiments and other food items in regular grocery stores that I'm selling for very big profit margins (a profit of up to 6x more than the cost of the items!)

The video to the right shows you a.) why selling groceries can be lucrative; and b.) profit proof of my success.

Jessica's end-to-end course on selling groceries on Amazon (including several helpful bonuses)  is just $47 for a limited time (she could sell this for $200+ and it would still be well worth it).

FREE: My bonus money-back guarantee. I know Jessica - she's a stand up, honest person. Her 'Grocery Goldmine' course has a 60-day money back guarantee. I'm adding another 305 days to that guarantee. So if you decide it’s not for you after ‘day 60', forward me your email receipt (before the 365th day) and I’ll refund you 100%, out of my own pocket. You just have to buy 'Grocery Goldmine' via my affiliate link here. (I make a small amount of $ for the referral.)

(Even if you don't buy the guide, I promise you'll learn a few things in the video).

P.P.S. If you've never sold on Amazon before, I suggest you take this complete, inexpensive course.

    Does this work for folks not in the States?

    • Jordan Malik August 19, 2014, 7:59 am

      It may work for outside U.S., however the guide is intended for U.S.-based sellers only.

    A notation on Jessica’s page states that Amazon isn’t accepting new sellers in groceries. Does that mean I can’t sell in that category now?

    I’ve dabbled some in groceries, not a lot, maybe $5000 worth in 2013. They do work, but I encountered several instances of Amazon being “trigger happy” with declaring entire shipment expired when the dates were 5 months out. By the time I saw it and created removal order ($.50 per unit), got it back, and reprocessed to ship back in (a significant needless fruitless hassle I might add) they would have been just 4 months out. That would leave just 30 days to lee-way before the 90 day exp date cutoff. So a lot of stuff went to the food bank.

    Aside from that drawback, there is no doubt some good jack to be made in this category. Last Jan 2013 my local Walmart set out 2 pallets of pumpkin pie mix crazy low like 17 cents a can, pack of 8 went $32 FBA. And there will always be somebody somewhere who has to get his pumpkin pie fix all year round, with none to be found in stores (being a seasonal item). There’s all kinds of stuff out there like that. Salt free Heinz ketchup, McCormick orange extract, and French’s dried onions were some other good ones…

    And there are other thing in grocery stores to cash in on that you don’t eat. I did pretty good with a pallet of Reynolds foil, and some zip lock backs.

    Just be VERY careful about your dates and sell time if you jump in on this. Liability is another consideration. Not a show stopper, but certainly a consideration. But then again liability is a consideration with any category, but probably more so with food.

    Hi Avi, actually qty: 10 to 15 within 1 months is ok by me when a.)I’m procuring the goods at the cost I’m getting them AND I’m buying 10 to 20 different products per month. It’s just a part of my overall product mix. I have some grocery products that are qty: 100 that sell in 1 month, and other products that are qty: 25 that sell in 3 months, but when you multiply that x 30 different products in a 3 month period, it keeps the income stream up at a nice level. I guess if I wanted to, I’d buy qty: 1000 and up of each item/bundle but I like to experiment here and there, not put ‘all my eggs in one basket’ as they say.

    I do need to start thinking even bigger than the $145K (50% net profit) I did on Amazon in 2013, I’d like to start buying larger quantities of items and doubling those numbers for 2014, so you do have a point.

    Re: toys, i don’t remember a guide I have that covers the same toys that amazon is selling, perhaps you meant this post – https://jordanmalik.com/blog/how-to-profit-from-hot-toy-lists-its-not-what-you-think/

    Listing an item that Amazon doesn’t have is fine as long as you can justify it/test it/research it to see if there is demand for the toy (or existing demand for a similar toy).

    Jordan — I love your bonuses. Quick questions.
    1. This book requires some experience before, right? I have sold books before so I guess this is good enough. Or this guide gives you enough steps even if you don’t have experience selling in AZ?
    2. You seem to be saying that each section of the book is a technique. So you can use a few sections and start earning already?
    3. What scanning device is better used in groceries?
    4. Are you saying also that this is a good field since groceries are fast turning products?
    Thanks.

    • Jordan Malik February 20, 2014, 2:11 pm

      Herb:

      1. If you’ve sold products on Amazon, you don’t need any more experience to utilize the Grocery book.
      2. Yes you can start with the basics
      3. I use Profit Bandit exclusively now ($14.95 one-time charge, google it) on my iphone (also available for androids). The only pitfall is that if you have no/very weak cell signal inside the store).
      4. Yes the potential for groceries is huge, one of the reasons is that SOME are fast-turning products. Of course groceries can have it’s ‘duds’ too (the book will explain how sales rank can help determine that).

    My living room, dining room and media room look like a warehouse with everything coming and going. Someday I have to build a garage.

    Thank you for the info.

    Jordan – that is a great idea to add length to the money back guarantee – i looked at this course earlier and was going to buy. However, I am one of those customers who does ask for money back if the course doesn’t deliver…not trying to be a bad customer, but its alot of money

    • Jordan Malik February 20, 2014, 12:54 pm

      Hi, the $69 cost for the program will actually keep away the ‘tire kickers’ who would saturate the Amazon grocery marketplace anyway. But more importantly, this course has SO much more than your typical $7 or $27 ebook. In fact at $69 I think it’s way UNDER-priced. I totally disagree that it’s too much money.

  • Gina W February 20, 2014, 12:21 pm

    This method sounds fantastic Jordan- what a crazy idea! I have been on your list for quite a while, but I have the issue of living in a State that Amazon has banned from being an affiliate. I don’t think there is any way I can find around this unless you have some hot tip for me? Thanks, and you sure give us great info!

    • Jordan Malik February 20, 2014, 12:53 pm

      Hi Gina – the amazon affiliate program has nothing to do with their ‘Sell on Amazon’ program. You are not restricted from being selling physical products on Amazon in Arizona. Sell on Amazon overview: http://services.amazon.com/selling/benefits.htm

      As an amazon affiliate, you do not handle the physical product. As a merchant on the ‘Sell on Amazon’ program, you DO handle the physical product.
