They say “a cup of tea is an excuse to share great thoughts with great minds.”
Tea… Probably the most popular type of beverage around the world, next to water and coffee. It is hard to imagine cold cloudy autumn evenings without a cozy blanket and a cup of flavored tea. Thus, tea is considered to be one of the most popular and bestselling products on Amazon. However, before jumping into the process of selling tea on Amazon, you have to meet several requirements.
Tea, Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea!
It is commonly known that the grocery category is a restricted category on Amazon, and so, before start selling tea through the platform, you have to implement several actions.
- First of all, you have to get Amazon’s approval for selling products in the grocery niche.
- Your next step should be finding a reliable supplier who will provide you with high-quality products.
It is wise to know that the variety of products provided by this market is really huge. Thus, your main job is to figure out which tea product is going to fly on Amazon. You can sell flavored tea, organic tea, ice tea, or even herbals teas. Choose the best niche, and confidentially start your business!
There are several business models which allow you to sell tea on Amazon. For example, you can find tea manufacturers who offer private-labeling. Try to contact them, and ask about the main requirements and detailed information on how to source private-labeled products to sell on Amazon.
Choosing the Right Business Model
Of course, Private Label provides you with an opportunity to create a branded business on Amazon, and drastically boost your sales. It is sometimes risky, however. At the same time, you will become responsible for vital aspects of your Amazon business such as storage and shipping of your products, which may become a reason for different issues in your Amazon business, including suspensions.
For example, if your customer doesn’t receive the order in time, he or she can leave a bad review, which will have a negative impact on your ODR metrics. Additionally, if you don’t keep products in the proper condition and in accordance with all the requirements, a buyer can receive a low-quality product, and you will immediately get suspended due to inauthentic violation.
