Here’s what the experts had to say:

Fernando Cruz; Founder of Seller Tradecraft

“The easiest products are products that are somewhat simple. Not too many moving pieces, not breakable, that are smaller than a shoebox, that works really well. In terms of ease, there aren’t a lot of certifications.”

Barbara Boschen; Co-Founder of CoMerchant Relisting Software

“Ones that aren’t gated. Ones that have low counterfeit. So an example would be ‘Grocery.’ You can pick up grocery to do a little of testing at any store, right? So they’re very easy to get. And it’s something you can really cut your teeth on without having to buy a ton and without having too much exposure.”

James Thomson; Prosper Show Co-Founder

“[Look for products] where there’s the least competition. I think we start getting into oversized products, we get into hazmat products… with these types of items, people are naturally a little bit more afraid to sell because it’s not easy to sell those types of items on Amazon. If you’re telling me that you sell wireless accessories, or vitamins, I will tell you that you’re up against a much larger mountain of competitors than against companies that sell hazmat or sell oversized products.”
