Waiting over seven weeks for two packets of seeds. Seller blames coved saying there may be a three to four day delay. Absolute joke. Do not buy here.

I am a full time used book seller on Amazon and I STRONGLY recommend that no one sell collectible stamps there. You will end up having many instances where the buyer claims non-receipt, or returns of stamps different from what you sold. Amazon favors buyers to the Nth degree and they will take your money in favor of a customer complaint.

I think Amazon could be a decent venue to sell 102 cards, glassines, pages, binders, and maybe even packets, but be aware that mainstream stamp collecters are typically more eBay-oriented than Amazon.

Thank you shermae for your comments. A great help.-:)


Amazon has only recently opened up " Amazon Australia".

Lots of listings on Amazon Australia look like they are straight from Amazon USA site to bulk up Amazon Australia I presume.

Some time ago tried to purchase from Amazon China but the langue barrier and payment options stopped me. Another issue with this experience was I wanted 5kg but most wanted to sell by the ton or shipping container full. But still could buy 5kg from some sellers at a very good price.

Personally, would not touch Amazon, with a barge pole.

An Amazon advertisement on Facebook.

These dinky little thermos flasks are a real life-saver.
By that, I mean they're an example of what "saved" me from my 9-5 - and helped me to escape a lifetime of working hard for someone else.
And I'm not the only one.
In fact, there are tens of thousands of former 9-5'ers all over the world right now…
Making an income selling really simple everyday products like these on Amazon.
And the good news is: There's still room for more people to join us.
So how does it work?
Step 1: Go online and find a manufacturer who makes products like these thermos flasks. Buy them for potentially a couple of dollars each.
Step 2: Set up an account as a seller on Amazon, and get the supplier to ship the chosen products over to Amazon's warehouse.
Step 3: List the products on Amazon for say, $20. This gives room for a nice profit margin, after paying a reasonable fee to Amazon.
Now, here's why anyone would WANT to pay that Amazon fee:
Once the products are listed for sale, it's mostly hands-off for the seller from that point onwards.
Amazon keeps the products at their warehouse, packs them for customers, and sends them right to the customer's doorstep. This means we never actually need to deal with the customers ourselves.
All we need to do is repeat the 3 steps above to find more winning products to sell - while Amazon sends us our profits every 2 weeks, no matter where we live.
So it's just like earning a regular "paycheck" of a 9-5 - with none of the commute, fixed hours and office politics.
Interested to learn more?
I've distilled some of my Amazon experiences and knowledge into a digital book called " Amazon Jetstream Income" that can be accessed straightaway.
Inside, I'll share how to source products online, what sort of products I choose, how I work with Amazon, and much more.
I'll even show you examples of products that are doing amazing sales right now.

Hi shermae

A question if you do not mind.

Does Amazon have all your used book stock in their factory system?

KGV- Up until 2017, all of my inventory was stored in Amazon warehouses across the country. At the peak, I had almost 250,000 titles in stock. Then in 2017 a series of major changes were made to the selling and storage fees. After a thorough analysis, I realized that selling used books through Amazon warehouses was no longer financially viable.

Since about May 2017, all my inventory has been kept in my own warehouse and we ship all orders directly to consumers.
