Some readers have requested an AMZ Importing review, so I felt this was necessary. I’m an Amazon USA seller based on the Gold Coast. I’ve done a range of courses during my time, so this one comes with experience.
I sell on Amazon USA from Australia
I’ve been running this blog of mine since 2011. I’ve covered a lot here, including a full range of Amazon seller courses catered for Australians.
Today I sell on Amazon US, eBay Australia and own a range of eCommerce businesses. As some would say, I’m “living the dream”. But I started just like you, a beginner who was eager to learn.
My thoughts on AMZ Importing Alliance
AMZ Importing is a unique company. As opposed to creating a training course for students, they are providing a full suite of services. This even includes mentoring, which other courses generally don’t offer unless you buy the upsells.
Fortunately, as a fellow seller, I provide some email support should you choose to purchase certain Amazon courses available here on my blog.
Here’s what I liked
- More than just a course
- Actual mentoring services
- A direct link for sourcing in China
- Group trips to the Canton Fair with guidance
Here’s what I didn’t like
- Lack of video content information
- A distinctive lack of existing student reviews
- Very little social media presence leading to a lack of trust
What should a beginner do?
I honestly believe that it’s best to learn Amazon yourself first. AMZ Importing is focused more-so on being the mentor to you. That’s great. But if they close up shop, whose got the knowledge? They do.
If you do a course, you’ll have the knowledge. And you’ll likely not need a mentor. In fact, I recommend with most courses in the marketplace, that you won’t need a mentor. These courses provide you with all the information you need, backed by thriving student-only Facebook communities.
On the other hand, while many people don’t need a mentor, most people want a mentor. This is where Amz Importing comes in. They do fill a void in the marketplace, without charging a fortune.
Dozens of Australians have requested me to be their mentor, and have offered an incredible amount of money. I’ve always rejected this, but have thanked them for the humble offer. You need to learn the knowledge, not pay the mentor with the knowledge. A real case of “teaching a man to fish….”
The cost for AMZ Importing Alliance is on-par with most Amazon seller courses, including those catered for the US and Australian prospective students. Yet the course content isn’t as diverse, isn’t as in-depth. Their Facebook page, at the time of writing this, has 91 likes. That to me speaks of a very tiny pool of students, though they do have some content on Instagram.
Their group trips to the Canton Fair is a worthwhile investment. Though consider that any course listed above has a significant amount of students that also visit the fair. There’s a strong community feel. You’ll easily be able to meet up with other (experienced) students at the fair for helpful advice, tips and strategies.
Which courses should I look at?
That’s the best part, I’ve done the work for you! I’ve put together an extensive list of every popular Amazon course available in 2019. However, that list will overwhelm you, especially if you’re new to selling on Amazon FBA. So, I’m providing you a much smaller list, a list of Amazon courses run by Australians.
Is selling on Amazon USA from Australia really possible for beginners?
Yes, it’s possible. I started as a beginner. I’m doing it right now. I’ve been doing it for 2 years now. Plus, thousands of other Australians are doing it right now. So, I’m not alone in this.
Trust me, there’s room for many others. ✌️ The Amazon opportunity is better now than what it was when I started researching almost 4 years ago! So much untapped potential.
Dealing with Chinese suppliers is actually easy. Yes, there’s a language barrier, but they genuinely want to help. Their factories want to be profitable. Plus
Who is AMZ Importing for?
Ideally, you’ve done a course, but now you want a bit more. Perhaps a coach to help you out. Amz Importing offers one-on-one support that I personally cannot offer with the limited time that I have. If you need someone to talk to about your product ideas, then this could be a good starting point. Likewise, the Canton Fair trips are worthwhile too.
AMZ Importing does have a course but is unlikely as deep as other offerings out there. That said, the support, training and assistance element is necessary for some people. ☺️ There are Amazon coaches in other companies offering packages for 5 figure investments, and I generally steer people away from such upsells.
Now, these guys do have a slight spoon-feeding element, but it’s designed to have clients actually learn the ropes themselves. It’s a case of working with Amz Importing whilst transitioning towards going independently on this journey yourself, fully supported unlike some Amazon courses out there.
This company also offers listing and PPC management services. So if you’re a live seller like myself, but don’t wish to manage everything from this stage of the journey, you can outsource such elements. That way, you can simply focus on sourcing / launching more products.
My closing thoughts
Thank you for taking the time to read this AMZ Importing Alliance review. I hope this has been of value to you, as it has been to dozens of Australians already. That it has provided a clear and concise overview of this mentoring company.
It’s excellent that you’re doing your research, that you’re looking on Google before making the plunge. That’s a wise choice my good friend. Consider that the vast majority of people who undertake Amazon FBA courses don’t actually need mentoring after completion. Once you’ve got the knowledge, paired with a thriving Facebook community as the 3 courses provided in the link above have, you’ll be unstoppable.
I truly believe that it’s possible for people to start this journey, irrespective of where you’re starting from. You will need some capital. You will need some time, patience and perseverance. But if you’ve got a winning mentality, then selling on Amazon is right for you.
