Product Selection in Amazon Germany with Greg Mercer

This is a session from the European Private Label Summit 2017 – the online conference for Amazon FBA sellers in European marketplaces.

I have challenged Greg Mercer, the founder of Jungle Scout, to demonstrate how to find a product in the marketplace without knowing the language. Greg does not speak a word of German, but using the JungleScout tools he managed to identify a potential product idea.

Tactics for finding private label products in Europe in 2017

  1. Focus in EXISTING demand
  2. Focus on quality
  3. Focus on adding value and differentiation
  4. Focus on low competition

Criterias for European Product Ideas

  • Existing Niche Demand: greater than 1000 sales/month
  • Low Competition: listings in top 10 with less than 20 reviews
  • Less than perfect reviews: selling well with less than 4-star rating
  • Price Point: 18€-60€ (less competition at higher price points, greater margin per sale)

Do not select products that:

  • Need to be licensed
  • Are patented
  • Cannot be sold on Amazon
  • High liability or risk
