This post is based on an interview with Appeagle user and Amazon seller Tom Hou. Check out how he's used Appeagle's automated repricing software to build his part-time online business into something he's preparing to shift into full-time.
Meet Tom Hou, part-time Amazon seller looking to scale
Tom Hou works a full-time job while selling on Amazon part time. However, like many other part-time sellers, he's hoping to transition into selling online full-time so he can get more control over his life.
“I don’t like working for others. I prefer to work for myself and from home. I currently work full-time, but I’m hoping to make selling on Amazon my full time job by increasing my inventory,” said Tom.
Because of his full time job, Tom currently has 100 listings, but has plans to grow.
“My goal right now is to reach 1,000 listings by the end of the year, while still working my day job.”
Tom's eCommerce background
After selling online for two years, Tom has honed his business to selling DVD’s, electronics, and toys.
“I have found that toys and media perform the best for me, especially as FBA. It’s the best option,” said Tom who has been FBA for his entire selling career.
When it came to repricing, Tom had to do some digging to find what worked best for him.
“I saw ads on Google for repricing software, and decided to check some discussion groups and forums to see what other sellers had to say about what was out there.
"Many of the forums were saying that Appeagle was one of the best. After comparing several options, I found Appeagle to be the easiest to use and it had the most reasonable price,” said Tom.
Tom's listing criteria and career goals
Tom has specific criteria for his listings.
“I insist on making at least 100% profit on everything I sell. I only lower my minimum price after two to three months because I can afford to wait. So far this has worked well for me.”
The Appeagle tool also affords Tom more flexibility in his hectic schedule.
“Because I work full time, I have no time to dedicate to manual repricing, so Appeagle is a huge help in that regard. Since I started using the software, I’ve seen an increase in sales of about 20%.”
