Amazon launches new Sell as individual feature (Second hand Goods)
Amazon has now launched a new feature which will bring smiles to the faces of the individual traders, merchants and also the users. Now you can sell your used goods on Amazon by this feature. At present this service is available only to the residents of Bengaluru.
Amazon itself will come to your doorstep – pick your delivery up and deliver it to the person that has requested the element from you.
How to sell via this new feature?
- Go to the “sell as individual” page here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=200306550 and thereafter you have to click on “start selling”.
- This will take you to a new page where you have to fill out a form with your details. You can add the photo of the product and give brief details about the product. The price and even the pickup details can be given on this page itself.
- There is a city selection on the menu but you can see that only Bengaluru is the one city where this feature is currently operable. Once the listing has been made, your product will show in the category of used products.
- The product also comes with easy return offers. In case the user returns the product, Amazon will bring the product back at your doorstep.
- After the sale has been completed, the amount will be transferred to your account – a small fee will be deducted from it by Amazon for its services.
How much will Amazon charge for this purpose?
Amazon’s charge seems to be quite reasonable for this according to the experts. They are charging a meager fee of Rs. 10 on items under Rs. 1000. For items up to Rs. 5000 they are charging a fee of only Rs. 50 and for a value higher than Rs. 5000 their fee will be Rs. 100.
Interesting things to note
Amazon is currently promoting this new feature by enabling 1000 Amazon Pay Balance if you sell 5 of anything of the sorts of books, video games, music, movies, etc. The same value of 1000 will be given to you if you sell one laptop, mobile phone or tablet via this new feature.
With 1000 Amazon Pay balance you can purchase more stuff from Amazon. Hence, this is a good feature for those who are looking to buy new things in exchange with their old products.
Amazon is expected to roll out this feature soon in other states as well. However, for right now, Bengaluru is the one state that is getting the benefits.
What about Junglee?
For those who are unaware, Amazon had launched a similar service previously through Junglee. It seems like Amazon is currently folding this feature. However, it is still hearsay.
