Amazon is one of the most popular e-commerce sites in the United States with billions of people visiting to browse and shop for items each month.  Amazon is far more than a source to buy the latest weed wacker or find a service you wish to engage to satisfy a need.  For literally millions of people; including myself, Amazon has become a reliable way to earn a steady income on a full or part-time basis.

If you have yet to use Amazon to make money instead of spending money, you may decide to after discovering the many ways it is possible to do so.  Some have even started very successful businesses without ever having to leave their homes with Amazon alone.  You can too.  And this article may help to motivate you to give Amazon a try.


Here are at least 21 awesome ways to make money with Amazon

  1. Sell Private Label Products – Private label products are products manufactured somewhere else (China for example) where the manufacturer makes them and slaps your private label on them.  Practically everything under the sun can be bought, shipped to the USA, and sold through Amazon’s FBA program.  You have to do your research to find the products that will sell, but it’s possible to make thousands per month selling Private Label goods.
  2. Self-Publish books with Amazon KDP or Kindle Direct Publishing – Are you good at making crossword puzzles, coloring books, or thousand other informational skills? Then consider joining Amazon’s KDP book platform.  Publishers receive royalties for every book they sell, and some prolific authors are able to make thousands per month writing how-to books, helpful tutorials, guides, novels, non-fiction stores, and so much more.
  3.  Sell Wholesale on Amazon – Sure you have to have the financial resources to make it work, but buying cheap and in bulk for products that people really want is a way to make quite a bit of money.
  4. Become a Blogger – If you have the gift of written gab and you get a decent audience, you can put up ads from Amazon on your blog and earn a commission when a product is sold.  I recommend Bluehost for all your blogging needs.  You can obtain a professional blog with 24/7 customer support for less than $4 a month!
  5. Retail Arbitrage – If there are plenty of discount stores in your area, you can buy products such as tennis shoes that are on closeout, buy them, and then list them on Amazon for a premium.
  6. Online Arbitrage – You can do the same thing with online sources such as E-bay, buy them and turn around and flip them on Amazon.
  7. Work from home for Amazon – Amazon has thousands of reps that work from home and they currently need people in the US and outside of the US to help their customers answer questions, track their packages, and so forth.  Amazon’s minimum salary rate is $15 per hour (which is double the minimum wage in some states) to work in Customer Service, Seller Support, as a Stylist, and many other categories.  Please watch this latest video to find out how you can make over $1,000 a week working from home for Amazon.
  8. Sell Homemade Products for Amazon – If you make homemade products, Amazon has a program called Amazon Handmade that can bring artisans perhaps $1,000 per month or more.

  18. Amazon Mturk – This is a popular crowd-sourcing marketplace where individuals can perform a variety of non-phone virtual tasks to earn extra cash.  There are literally thousands of tasks daily to choose from.
  19. Amazon Shopper Panel – I recently got an invite to join this free panel by downloading their free app so that I could submit my receipts and take very short surveys for cash.  You will earn $10 a month to upload 10 receipts plus $0.25 to $0.50 for every answer you give in a short survey.  You are guaranteed to earn at least $10 each month just to upload 10 receipts!
