Why Sell on Amazon?

Reason #1

No need for employees. Imagine not having to deal with the headaches and hassles of managing staff!

Reason #2

Start with less than $100 if you're strapped for cash. And turn it into a monthly income by reinvesting the profits

Reason #3

Work from home. No more commutes, or dealing with bosses and pointless meetings. Free up your time.

Reason #4

Never store inventory in your home. No need for a warehouse. Amazon FBA store everything in their warehouses for you.

Reason #5

No dealing with customers! When you sell on Amazon FBA, they handle all customer inquiries, product returns, shipping and inquiries. No more headaches for you having to deal with clients.

Reason #6

No trips to the post office required! Amazon FBA store and ship your products to customers for you. Save a ton on shipping costs and free up your time by not having to ship items to customers yourself.

Reason #7

Amazon have more customers than you could ever bring in on your own. They take away the hardest part of any business: The marketing. Just list your products on Amazon and get paid as they sell.

Reason #8

Get paid in US dollars. The US dollar is strong and goes a lot further when converted back into Canadian dollars or your own home currency.

Reason #9

Sell globally without any extra effort. When you sell on Amazon FBA, they ship your products to customers all over the world - With no additional steps required by you. You can live anywhere in the world and run an FBA business.

Reason #10

eCommerce is still growing in leaps and bounds and still only accounts for only a percentage of all retail sales. Amazon recently admitted that they're making more money using third party sellers like you and I vs selling products directly themselves, creating a massive opportunity for growth for small business owners.

Reason #11

Represent brand owners and set up and manage their Amazon accounts for them! That's right - They supply the inventory and cover the shipping costs, and you get paid a percentage of their sales. Zero risk, and requires no capital.

REAL SCREENSHOTS OF ACTUAL SALES FROM MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY:



I was so happy.......As someone new to FBA I had so many questions. It was difficult to find answers......Duncan detailed all the info needed from basics to the nitty gritty of getting your shipment across the border and setting up with prep and ship companies. I feel so much more confident in getting my shipment into Amazon.com growing my FBA business!" - Christine B

"I can’t thank you enough. I was worried about launching my business in Q1 but it turned out to be a smashing success! Your course was the best money ever spent. When I last emailed you a couple weeks ago my sales were just over $1,500/week. Not bad for just starting out. Now not even 2 weeks into February my sales have skyrocketed to $5K per week with Valentines Day sales leading the way. This is building way faster than I could ever expected and I’m truly struggling to balance this with my day job. Best problem ever! I signed up for the wholesale course and am looking forward to it because I can’t keep up with the RA and OA anymore, it’s not sustainable on my own! Here are my latest business financials (and bear in mind it still hasn’t been 30 days since my first sale!!!) Thanks so much once again!!" -Chuck

We just had our best month ever with $15,000 USD in sales...
...We couldn't have done without this. Big shout out to Duncan Macpherson for his training...a great resource and it helped eliminate a lot of confusion when we first started ." - Jack S.

"Very happy to be able to learn from you. This was one of the reasons I was able to gross ~300k this year. Aiming for $1 million in 2019! Thank you Duncan!" - Jenya S.

"Duncan and his group have been instrumental in my success in selling on .CA. So much useful information from everyone. Just starting with some wholesale accounts." - Bruno B

It’s hard to explain the feeling I get every single day when I wake up and live life on my own terms. It’s crazy to realize that I make more money while I sleep than most people make in a job that they hate.

I don’t have an alarm clock, nor do I need to drive in traffic unless I choose to. I’ve lived this way since 2011 and could never go back. I think of the movie The Matrix and the option to take the blue or red pill. I took the red pill and am living an extraordinary life outside of the normal 9-5 routine of working for someone in a job.

I don’t tell you this to impress you, rather to impress upon you that the lifestyle of your dreams is in your hands. I knew nothing about Amazon FBA four years ago and now I work on my own schedule, with no boss and no one telling me what to do!

A JOB is a really a bad deal if you think about it.

  • You’re told when to be there and when you can leave.
  • You need permission to take time off
  • You’re allowed a set number of sick days – Oh, gee thank you!
  • You maybe have to deal with a jerk boss who doesn’t respect or appreciate you
  • Dealing with corporate politics
  • Only being paid just enough to keep you around

The most precious thing we all have is time. No one, no matter how wealthy can create more of it. 24 hours in a day is what we all get. It’s how we SPEND it that counts.

Scrimping pennies and saving and hoping that compound interest will amass enough to retire someday is no way to live. No thanks.

When I decided to stop focusing on just earning a living and began designing my ultimate lifestyle everything changed.

^^^My family enjoying the ferry ride to Vancouver Island

We only have so many heartbeats, so why not spend your time on your own terms with who you choose, vs the treadmill of working for someone else on THEIR schedule?

Allan Wiseman I've been able to understand and improve my sales, thanks.....

Renee Els Buys I’ve been wanting to start selling on Amazon.ca for a couple of months now but can’t seem to find the courage to just take the leap. Joined.... to hopefully find the some inspiration to stop procrastinating and just get going😬


Tayyaab Tanveer I've been following now for the better part of this quarter. I've started with the basics such as RA and now I'm moving on to sourcing - bigger and better just got one of my largest shipments today :)

Megan Christina Everyone is so kind in responses to questions. Great learning.....

Lori Kristen Miller Hey! first, welcome everyone!!

What I like .....is Duncan's involvement helping out and pitching in as well as everyone else. It's so supportive with even the smallest beginning questions!


Nick Vlismas The knowledge .... is priceless



Andrew Moorey Always great to see the answers to unique Amazon challenges. No one else really understands the business so it's great to be part of the community.


Ana G. Robillard Congrats! I found you by searching! And thank God because i have so many quesrions.....I can have my answers. Really good vibe too!


Evelyn Townsend I was trying to find a Canadian version of everything I was reading online about Amazon sellers. Duncan was the first and so far only one to give a Canadian perspective – and more than that accurate information. I also appreciate how the group will help when someone has an issue. Thanks Duncan!


Sanson Paul Found you on YouTube. So good to find a fellow Canadian. Thanks for all you do.


Jill Conyers It great that’s it’s for Canadians, but the best thing is the positive nature of the group. You don’t need to be afraid of asking “dumb” questions, as you’re not going to get torn apart (as can happen on some other groups).


Rebbecca Madge I love your story and ideally that’s my goal, leave my salary job and do FBA full time!
