Place Your Order

  1. Finalize the quote with your supplier for your first batch of inventory.
  2. Make sure your supplier has all the labels and packaging design files needed to manufacture your product.
  3. Place your order, and pay the initial payment.

Now that you have placed your order, you’re almost ready to start selling. All you need to do now is getting your first batch shipped from your supplier to Amazon’s fulfillment centers. This is what we will talk about in the last two Modules of Part A – Choose Your Product of this course.
