We can provide you with plenty of advice as to what you should sell on Amazon.

But what about the products you need to avoid? What are the signs that a product probably won’t be profitable for your Amazon store?

Here are three to keep in mind.

Sign #1 – It’s a Mechanical Product

Mechanical products come with a lot of challenges.

Your manufacturers have to put more time and effort into quality control, for one. That means you’re going to have to pay more for the product.

But worse than that, mechanical elements increase the chances of product faults. More faulty products mean you have to deal with more returns.

That’s bad for your bank balance and for your reputation as a seller.

Sign #2 – Loads of People Sell it

It’s very difficult for new sellers to break to compete with high volume products with lots of established sellers, with 1,000’s of reviews.

Aim to find a product that has reasonable demand and but light weight competition.

Sign #3 – It Has Shipping Issues

Heavy products cost more to ship. The same goes for large products.

And as for fragile products…let’s just say that the possible customer complaints aren’t worth the hassle.

The simple point here is that shipping complications cost money. When you’re starting out, you want something that’s light, small, and easy to pack.

Now, of course there are exceptions to these 3 rules.

For example, I’ve got students who have CRUSHED it with bigger products. However, when you’re starting out, these are 3 rules to help guide you.
