Think it’s a great idea to begin selling groceries on Amazon? It makes me hungry just to think about it! From a consumer perspective, purchasing groceries on the largest eCommerce platform just make sense. Amazon guarantees quality, speed of delivery, and product accuracy. But what about from a seller’s perspective? While you make the decision about the potential profitability of selling groceries on Amazon, the experts at Axelligence will help guide you through the steps of opening your virtual grocery store!

Amazon’s Guidelines

From snack food to perishables, we suggest you begin by familiarizing yourself with the  “Amazon laws” so you can be in compliance with all aspects. Your professional account needs to be in good standing. Then you may apply to be UNGATED in the grocery category. Good standing means:

  • Order Defect Rate of less than 1%
  • Cancellation Rate of less than 2.5%
  • Late Shipment rate of less than 4%

Be prepared with product invoices – Amazon has high standards! Do you prepare the food yourself? You’ll need to supply proof of your commercial facility that adheres to USDA regulations, local ordinances, and zoning laws.

Amazon’s Demands:

  1. Can you guarantee the freshness of your product?
  2. Is your product safely and adequately packaged?
  3. Does the product packaging state the net weight, expiration dates?
  4. Are all dietary claims / food allergens / ingredients clearly labeled?
  5. Does the product packaging include the name and address of the packaging company?

If your answers are yes, then you’re ready for the next steps! Next week, we’ll talk about selling Pantry versus Perishable items and the fees associated with selling groceries on Amazon.

Final word…

As a customer-centric company, Amazon’s primary objective is to provide customers with risk-free products and guarantee items sold on their site are safe for consumers.
