What is Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA)? Is it the same as drop shipping?
Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) is not drop shipping. You purchase product, take pics, put Amazon labels over the UPC codes, pack boxes, print shipping labels, and send it on it's way. Amazon then processes it for you and stores it in their warehouses until it sells and they ship it. 14 days later you get paid.
There are some Salehoo Suppliers that will sell you product and ship it to Amazon for you. Here are few suppliers that can ship directly to Amazon:

How to Get Traffic on Items Listed on Amazon?
Good keywords and selling popular products, they're the top absolutely best ways of getting traffic on a site like Amazon, no surprises there of course. Hopefully someone else may have some hidden trick.
A way to stand out on Amazon is to bundle multiple items together. For example if you are selling a chefs knife set, find a separate cutting board, bundle it with the knife set and include it in your keywords. You create a new item therefore "winning the buy box". You sell, you win.

Online Selling Platform: Amazon vs eBay
Many sellers make the mistake of putting Amazon and eBay in the same e-commerce basket. They fail to realize that the differences between Amazon and eBay are profound.
Let's use an analogy to illustrate my point: Imagine that you are a mechanic for a moment. Now someone with no experience with cars walks in and tells you that repairing a custom hotrod is the same as fixing a pickup truck! You would inform them that yes, the concept is the same, but you go about it in very different ways.
This is the correct way to understand the differences between Amazon and eBay. Unfortunately, these differences are often hard for novice sellers to recognize.
A good understanding of these differences enables a seller to potentially earn a good profit on both sites. But a lack of knowledge can quickly cause a seller to lose a lot of money fast.
