Default How many people here Private Label?

Just wanted to get an idea of how many people here make a living by Private Labeling, wholesale for name brand products, or wholesale for generic products, or sourcing from Goodwill and book sales etc? (And of course, wholesale phake products)

I'm doing a lot of generic products right now. I'm looking into private labeling for Amazon/eBay.

Any tips or suggestions? I feel like the hardest thing for me so far is creating a good listing on Amazon/eBay to be able to get good search results etc.

Also the biggest hurdle for me is dropping the $ to have to buy 500+ (MOQ for private labeling typically) for a product that may or may not work.

Private labeling is a huge business, I've seen some users absolutely crushing it with private labels of generic products. BUT I do think its quite a bit harder nowadays to pull off particularly on amazon, because I know many users who were doing private label on amazon started their listings and got them popular by using services to buy feedbacks for their products etc to get the sales started

But amazon has really been cracking down on that lately and has made it much tougher

Yes I know. Instead of paying people to do that, I was going to send a link to all of my friends among varies cities and states and PAY them to buy my product and leave a review. I believe this is a pretty good alternative.

But the SEO and writing a good description with keywords seems to be the hardest aspect for me.

Use facebook.

Say your private labeling gym accessories, then join gym groups on facebook, advertise your new product for a limited time cheap cost.

Or advertise on the group with the new product, and say you would like 50 testers, to test out the product and leave a review. You can private message the 50 to get closer to them, making them more likely to leave a review.

I think a more niched down product is better than a generic one in my opinion.

Private labeling is a lot more successfull on Amazon, to get good search results you need sales. So start cheap, and scale up.

Then you haven't spoken to enough suppliers, talk to them, say that your wanting to add more lines to your already successfull business, many of them will let you order less than the MOQ in hope for repeat business.

You can also ask for free samples, well I say free, you do have to pay the shipping cost. I think all suppliers offer this.

Do you create your own brand and put label on the product?


What hardware are needed to make it happen? ANd how is the risk and benefits?

This depends large on the product. For example, in jewelry you don't have to do anything at all. You can create a store called "Don't Suspend Me Jewelry" and just sell generic jewelry under that label after getting a UPC exemption on Amazon. What you have to do is to be absolutely sure that what you sell under the brand meets or exceeds all minimum jewelry specifications listed by Amazon (for example no lead, no nickel for anything baby or children related).

I already have a jewelry brand running. It's great because other sellers automatically can't list under your own jewelry listing so don't even have to worry about that.

I've been on alibaba for about 2-3 years and have yet to find a manufacturer that will private label for less than 500 MOQ no matter what. Guess I'm not a good negotiator

There's a number of options available.

Maybe you can split an order with somebody else...?

Put it on a credit card?

Some people here have used that PP credit short term loan service, there's a thread here somewhere about that.

Love money, meaning borrow from friends or family.

Ask them if they'll do 250 for $5 more a pop, or some other number?

No the jewelry is custom made from a manufacturer for me and his MOQ is only 120pcs per product. Dirt cheap too and great margins.

Then do what you have to and get 120.

Also, as I said, put it on a credit card, or use the PP credit loan feature, or take on a partner with money for a one time deal or borrow from friends and family.

Get creative. We all have to cross these thresholds at some point, every one of us has been there.

Also, investigate 2000 piece price. You might learn that 2000 pieces may not cost all that much more than 500 pieces.
