Learn to sell on eBay and Amaxon with Skip McGrath  

Want to Sell and Make Money on Amazon?  The Complete Amazon Marketing System Will Show You How It's Done.

By Skip McGrath


Skip Mcgrath

My name is Skip McGrath and I'd like to ask you a few questions.

  • Are you thinking about selling on Amazon, but don't know how? 
  •  Do you want to sell online, but aren't sure where to start? 
  •  Do you sell on eBay now and are wondering about making the move to Amazon? 

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then keep reading . . .  

My wife and I have been selling on eBay since 1999. In 2006 we began selling on Amazon and in 2010 we moved into Amazon's FBA program. (FBA stands for Fulfillment By Amazon.) Unlike eBay sellers, or Amazon merchant sellers, who have to ship all their products when they sell, FBA sellers ship their products in bulk to Amazon. When the item sells, Amazon ships it to the customer and handles all the communications, tracking, customer service and they even handle the returns.

And since we started selling on FBA, our Amazon business now dwarfs our eBay business. We are now selling about eight items on Amazon for each one we sell on eBay.

Dear Karen & Skip,

Until now, I have never written a review, beyond eBay feedback, in my life. However, I must extend you the same respect, and integrity that I received after purchasing your book, The Complete Amazon Marketing System.

I made a mistake, as many others did, by purchasing two books with overlapping material. I not only received an email, but also a phone call, which I missed, and subsequently heard a very pleasant and friendly voice mail from Karen explaining my mistake, and my options.

These days, especially with the anonymity if the internet, one rarely experiences the honesty and courtesies I received. Through your customer service, and your courses (I've now bought 4 of your books) you've inadvertently injected a vital dose of optimism and positivity in to my life. Optimism through the crucial knowledge contained in the books, but better is the blast of positivity felt through the wonderful human beings generating the content. Sir, it shows through your writing, that you love this profession, and with decency, respect, and kick ass customer service, you're living your dream. I'm eternally grateful to have found you guys. Cheers!

Thank You! Respectfully, humbly, and gratefully a patron, and student of Karen and Skip McGrath.

Sincerely, Abraham O. - Windham. New Hampshire

Skip, Is Your Book Up to Date?

The problem with any printed book is that it can go out of date as things on the Internet change.  In between major updates I keep this book current in two ways:

  • Bonus reports
  • My twice-monthly free newsletter

When you get to the bottom of this page you will see over a dozen bonus reports. Some of those were done when the book was written but many of them are new as those topics became important and I wanted to change or expand on the information in the book.

I also publish a twice-monthly FREE NEWSLETTER where I address new techniques, fees or policy changes on eBay and Amazon.

Why Sell on Amazon?

Why Sell on Amazon?Amazon is now the largest, most trusted and fastest growing shopping site on the web. Amazon experiences over 22 Million visitors every single day. Amazon will not release their figures, but conversations I have had with Amazon employees lead me to believe there are just over 600,000 sellers registered on Amazon US. I have no idea how many are on the various overseas sites but I suspect it is substantial.

Most of the 600,000 sellers are casual sellers. I estimate there are about 50,000 active sellers and probably around 10,000 full-time professional sellers -about the same as on eBay.

You are probably thinking, "How can I compete with 50,000 sellers? Wouldn't that make the site too crowded?" It's strange but the number of sellers doesn't seem to matter. I have spoken with large professional sellers who have been selling on Amazon for ten years and they all tell me their business goes up each year even as the number of other sellers grows. And I have that same experience. Each year since converting to an FBA seller, my Amazon sales have increased by almost 20% per year.

Should I leave eBay?

Many sellers have done that, but I don't recommend it. My wife and I still sell on eBay and in some cases eBay is more profitable, but it doesn't take that much effort to add Amazon. And - One of the things I am going to teach you is how to use Amazon to actually sell more on eBay.

Five Big Advantages of Amazon over eBay

1. More traffic and more sales ~ Amazon now gets more traffic than eBay and their sales are growing at over 40% per year. eBay has not seen that kind of growth since 2002.

Amazon gets more traffic than eBay

Amazon now has over 30 warehouses located all over the United States

2. Amazon does most of the work ~ When you sell an item on eBay you have to collect payment, post feedback, pack and ship the item and handle returns yourself. When you sell on Amazon, Amazon does all the work for you. They collect the money (and take the credit card risk), professionally pack and ship the goods and they handle returns for you.

3. Sell on eBay and Use Amazon as a drop shipper ~ When you store your products at Amazon, Amazon will actually ship products you sell on eBay to your eBay customers -and they ship for less money than it would cost you to ship the same thing so that actually makes you more competitive on eBay.

4. You make more money ~ I can't guarantee this will be true for everyone, but every seller I have spoken with who sells on both eBay and Amazon, says they make more money on Amazon. Our Amazon sales are now almost 8 times higher than our sales on eBay.

5. Seller Support ~ Seller support on Amazon is much more accessible than on eBay. It's quick and easy to email Amazon and if you want phone support during the day you can get an Amazon rep on the phone in usually less than one minute -and they will spend as much time on the phone as you need.

But Aren't Selling Fees Higher on Amazon?

Yes they are - but it doesn't seem to matter, as you will still make more money on Amazon because you will sell more. I know that sounds counter-intuitive but it's true.

You see -one of the secrets to making money online is to turn your inventory over as fast as possible. And that is what happens when you sell on Amazon. Your profit margin may be a little smaller, but your goods sell so much faster. Yet, having said that -one of the most important topics I cover in this training course is how to reduce your Amazon fees and increase your margins.

So enough of the sales pitch, how much is it and what do I get?

The complete course is just $227 plus FREE shipping and it comes with my 90-Day, No-Questions-Asked-Money-Back Guarantee.

I have broken the course into four sections:

1. Online Business Basics

This is where you learn how to set up your business for success. I cover organization, taxes, resources and everything you need to run a professional Amazon business (or any online business for that matter) whether you plan to do this part time or full time, setting up and organizing your business professionally will bring dividends for years and years.

2. Amazon Selling Basics

I show you everything you need to get started selling on Amazon. You can literally list your first items within minutes of finishing this section.

Amazon Selling Basics

3. Advanced Selling Strategies

These are the personal techniques and strategies I use every day to maximize my Amazon sales. I show you exactly step-by-step how to create listings that will be found on Amazon and that will sell: How to one-up the competition - How to win the buy box every time - How to find and create unique items to sell that no one else has - how to reduce your fees and increase margins on everything you sell -and most importantly - what to sell.

4. Product Sourcing

Section 4 is in its own volume. This covers wholesale product sourcing and acquisition; how, what and where to buy wholesale products to sell on Amazon. It might also interest you to know  that one of the free bonus items is lifetime membership in my wholesale sourcing website. The site has over a thousand legitimate wholesale sources that will work with small online sellers.


I have included several appendices that include items such as checklists and forms, wholesale trade show calendar, a directory of wholesale markets, ways to raise money for your business and tips for running your business while still working a full time job.

Work From Home by selling on Amazon

You can run your Amazon FBA business from anywhere even a boat or an RV. I met one bookseller last year who travels the country in his RV. He stops in towns where he buys books, ships them off to Amazon FBA and moves on to the next town. His used book business nets him about $70k a year after costs and fees.

By the time you get through all of this, believe me you will be an expert Amazon seller.

Yes -it will take some experience and yes, you will inevitably make some mistakes along the way. But if you follow the advice in this book and follow the Amazon policies - your mistakes will be minor and you will stay out of trouble with Amazon.

If you want to see all the nitty-gritty details, here is a link to the complete table of contents and here is a list of common questions I get from readers.

The course is delivered in two printed volumes so you can have them open in front of your computer to follow the steps. We ship every business day.

I learned more from reading The Complete Amazon Marketing System than I did the entire time I have been following another course that charged about $2,000, plus monthly fees over $100. After spending 5 months following that course, I was actually looking at something else priced at $4000. I knew I was missing some basic keys to getting my business started. Thankfully, I stumbled across Skip McGrath. His course covers everything. I just wish I had discovered it first.

Save the money you would have spent on those expensive courses and buy Skip’s course and some inventory. You can have a successful business started with less money than you would have spent on your education.
