ONE influencer reaps tens of thousands of dollars profiting from the books.
Today, many use Amazon to purchase products given the convenience of Prime delivery.
But some may not know that you can earn a lot of money from the e-commerce platform.
TikToker bryn.elise takes advantage of this with a nifty side hustle.
His channel, which has over 85,000 subscribers, offers side business ideas and how to make money.
Here’s how she made $100,000 from an Amazon gig, as she revealed in a recent video.
What she does
But as always, keep in mind that your side business could be subject to a tax bill from the IRS.
These types of gigs are considered income.
When it comes to books on Amazon, millions of books are sold each year in the marketplace, according to Bryn.
Before engaging in this side hustle, you need to make sure that you have an Amazon seller account.
Keep in mind that it costs $39.99 per month plus selling fees.
But assuming you have an account, you’ll want to download an app called ScoutIQ, which helps Amazon sellers make money selling books and other items with profit potential.
“I use this app to scan barcodes from the book and it will tell me exactly how much profit it will earn me on Amazon,” she said.
Once Bryn has digitized enough books that will earn her enough profit, she ships them to Amazon’s warehouses.
Once they arrive, Amazon will take care of the rest, and then she’ll be paid.
According to Bryn, the average profit per book is $25.
She also claims that this side hustle earns her $100,000 a year.
You can make a profit on books by looking at old books at your local thrift store’s estate sales.
Other similar stampedes
Another influencer, who goes by Stephen Raiken, does something similar, earning him $17,000 a month.
But instead, it uses the Amazon Seller app to scan the books instead of ScoutIQ.
“Books are very cheap,” Stephen said.
“Most people think they’re outdated and trash, so they give them away for free or for pennies at a thrift store. I sell a lot of books for $20, $30, $40 [and] $50. »
After scanning and finding out how much they are worth, you can create lists in the app.
In addition to the price, you’ll want to include the condition of the item and then prepare it for shipment to an Amazon fulfillment center.
You can also present images in the list.
Another way to make money through an Amazon seller account is to buy from Costco.
You’ll also need a Costco membership, which only costs $60 per year depending on the plan you want.
Combined with an Amazon seller account, a teenager can earn $5,000 a month enjoying the retailer’s snacks.
For more side business, a delivery hustle helped an influencer pay off over $50,000 in debt.
And we spoke to a marketing expert who revealed how he made an extra $6,000 a month without spending time on it.
