Once you’ve completed the steps above, your automated Amazon business can essentially run on its own. You just need to perform some regular (and very minor) maintenance. If you’ve set up your business properly, you’ll only need to spend roughly 5-10 minutes working on it.
Here’s what you’ll need to do…
Check on your sales every morning.
Given the difference in time zones (and customer buying preferences), people will likely end up buying from you overnight. So, it’s recommended that you check on your sales every morning. This is a good practice to ensure you’re keeping track. Plus, it can give you valuable insight into which offerings are best sellers.
Answer general customer questions.
When you sign up for the FBA program, customer service is handled for you. If someone wants to make a return or an exchange, Amazon’s team has you covered. However, it’s still worth looking at whether anyone has asked a question about one of your products. If so, it’s worth taking the time to answer, as it gives potential customers a good impression of you as a seller.
Replenish your inventory as needed.
Finally, you’ll need to replenish your inventory as needed. Just look at how many units are available and reorder from your supplier. This ties in with checking your sales regularly, as you want to be sure to reorder the products that are in high demand and scale back on those that aren’t doing well.
