selling opportunities in 2022


My name is Cindy Jackson.  I live in London and this is my full time job.  I buy products at a low price and sell them for a higher price.  I do this either online or in shops and then send them to Amazon to sell for me.  This is called Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA).






I am here to document my experiences and help others who are just starting out on their Retail and Online Arbitrage Journey selling on Amazon.  Pop over to my Facebook Group community where we share tips and stories and solve problems.  If you are new to selling it is a great source of knowledge and hopefully some of you who are already experts will stick around for the friendships and conversation.


Before I started selling on Amazon, I shopped on Amazon….a lot.  In fact I shopped a lot everywhere, typing this now I realise I was probably a shopaholic, a bargain hunter;  

I enjoyed finding something for a good price and getting a deal.


  Selling on Amazon from the Beginning



I'm sure some of you will have seen this PDF guide that has been shared on a few of the Amazon groups. But for those of you who haven't, I'll add it below.

The gist of it is, if you are a registered business. Limited business or sole trader (although I have heard sole trader may be slightly trickier) and you are NOT VAT registered (Yearly turnover is less than £85k), then you can apply to not be charged VAT on Amazon FBA and Referral fees. Or get a refund for the time before you became VAT registered.

Warning - Only try and do this if your account is in good health, as in you have all the correct names and details and your paperwork matches this exactly. You don't want Amazon looking into your account and finding something they're not happy with while they're doing their checks. If you are unsure you should ask your Accountant.

I received my refund in August 2021 and no longer pay VAT on fees going forward, it took me about 6 weeks from applying to get my refund.

Thanks to the Amazon Sellers who wrote the guide and shared it in the Amazon selling community. 💚
