Amazon Tools

This is a collection of tools and websites that make your life as an Amazon seller easier. I use the following tools and resources in my business when selling on Amazon and to my retailers. I mention these in the books and blogs but to make it easier for you I am listing them here for your reference. Some of these can come in quite in handy when you need a quick info or a simple job done fast. Disclaimer: some of the links are affiliate links and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a small commission if you decide to make a purchase. I have personally used and tested all of these products or companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. The cost to you remains the same, sometimes even cheaper if I have negotiated a special deal for my readers. Please do not purchase these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

Some sites that help you calculate costs as well as taxes and fees

Taxes & Duties

Dutycalculator

I use Dutycalculator to identify possible taxes and import duties. The first three “look up’s” are free of charge but then you need to pay.

worldfreightratesVisit Website

Shipping Costs

Worldfreightrates

Just like SendfromChina this site gives you a general idea on shipping costs. They are pretty accurate when it comes to sea shipment costs and have the most up-to date shipping rates for containers.

SendfromchinaVisit Website

Shipping & Logistics

SendfromChina

SendfromChina has a nice tool on their website, namely the “shipping calculator”. This tool gives you the latest discounted shipping rated from global forwarders & logistics companies (DHL, FedEx, UPS etc.) Use this tool to determine if your supplier is giving you a accurate freight cost estimation.

Resources & Helpful Sites

I use some of these sites on a regular basis for research, good reads or finding a product.

KadazaVisit Website

Kadaza

I use this site to find products. Click on any of the listed categories and you will find hundred’s of websites that can give you great ideas for your next (or first product). Sometimes I like to find my next product the old fashioned and this is a great site to give you many ideas.

Customs TariffsVisit Website

Customs Tariff’s

Custom tariff’s

If you run out of free “look up’s” on Dutycalculator you can look up your import tax rates & customs duties at the official site of the United States harmonized customs tariff section. It takes a bit of getting used to the site and not always easy to find your correct duties but you can get a pretty good idea. Use this site to determine your rough landing costs.
