Many people are on the lookout for some cheap Amazon products to launch and sell via FBA. After all, it’s a safe and effective way to learn the ropes.
So in this post, I’ll be showcasing some of the cheapest Amazon FBA products that you can source for less than $900. You’ll need to add freight, duties, Amazon fees, refunds, packaging, barcode costs and miscellaneous expenses on to each product.
It’s my intention that this list helps you with finding that 1st product, which creates the first-sale feeling. This way, you can create the belief that this business is possible, even for someone with very limited experience.
Cheapest products to sell on Amazon FBA
There are actually hundreds of cheap products that you can launch on Amazon FBA. I’ve done a lot of product research over the years in the gold mine.
Disclaimer: I’m an Amazon seller with several
Many people come to my blog after hearing about the Amazon dream. ‘Quit the rat race’ or ‘live life on your terms’ as these courses often promote.
Only that some courses claim that you can make a full-time income starting with less than $5,000. Let me tell you – that is complete BS.
Starting on Amazon isn’t cheap
Nope – there is a whole lot more than just buying those initial goods out of China.
- The investment in your education and conferences
- Tools and resources such as Jungle Scout and Helium 10
- Placing your first bulk product purchase (The biggest cost)
- Travelling to China to visit suppliers or the Canton Fair
- Freight to get your product from overseas to Amazon FBA
- Third-party validation services such as V-Trust for verification
- Import duties, taxes and Tariff increases (Gee –
- …and a whole host of high Amazon fees that they charge you too!
Then after all that, 5% of your customers will ask for a refund. Indeed not a cheap business to get into. Nor is it a business for cheap people either.
I’ve personally poured tens of thousands of dollars into my 2 Amazon FBA businesses. I don’t sell cheap stuff.
But there is some of you that have the dream. You want to learn, bit by bit. You’re on a budget. If that’s the case – then this cheap Amazon FBA products list is for you, to learn the ropes, before you go further.
Here’s the list
In creating this, I’ve chosen only small products that you can airfreight straight to FBA. It’s significantly easier and faster than sea freight. Each product is small, less than the size of a shoe. Also, for $900, you’re only going to order less than 100 and in some cases less than 50, if your supplier permits a low MOQ that is.
Here we go:
- Men’s slim wallet
- Airpod’s leather case
- Women’s high socks
- Water-proof key storage case (for boaters)
- Binoculars case
- Mascara brushes

…there’s certainly plenty more out there in the gold mine, but I hope that gives you some direction!
Suppliers can readily be found on Alibaba and other sites. Also consider sourcing from outside of China, with India being a prime spot to source cheap Amazon FBA products to sell.
You will be competing with the Chinese for most of these products. All these sellers are in the low-end of town. This is why private-labelling and brand building is very much talked about through professional Amazon selling communities, so we get the edge on those competitors.
Just use this list as a guide to get that first sale on Amazon. As mentioned, you’ll need a low MOQ and it could be as little as 20 units to get yourself started. Avoid any competitive niches and go deeper.
For example, instead of ‘mouse pad’, drill down to ‘girls pink mouse pad’ because a lot of teenage girls may want a pink mousepad for homework after school, since laptop trackpads can be challenging.
Finally – play the long game. Getting that first sale is an accomplishment for sure, but just one step in the big journey that is Amazon.
Becoming an Amazon FBA seller changed my life. I hope it can change yours too!
