Great video. Thanks for posting. New subscriber! The music makes no difference to me. I swear people whine too much.

Miriana Troobnikoff Would it be wise to get brand/logo trademark and graphic design for private label FIRST before ordering my product from supplier please?
Peter XYZ (1 month ago)
Interesting info but the music is competing with your voice. You missed one great opportunity: show us what you are selling. “The rug tie the room together” to paraphrase the Dude, being everything full circle, a satisfying finish on your narrative journey. Also, the mic...sound off. Maybe too far from your mouth, allowing pick up more room sound.

Is "white label"when I use no label at all on a generic product or my own brand logo on a generic product ??and then is "private label"(OEM)when I have differentiated /improved/changed a generic product ...Thanking you

The main reason stuff made in China feels like bad quality is that the brands don't want to pay batter.

Hello. Really enjoy your videos. I've been watching since your retail arbritage days. I'm also about to jump into Private Labeling. A few questions. How did you go out getting your packaging created? Also who did you use for creating your Logo?
Leslie Van D (8 months ago)

I have to say, finding a supplier who is capable of making 50 pieces of private label product is a difficult task.

So you are paying for shipping and then when it finally comes to you from China, you then have to ship to Amazon which is even more ... shipping
Rachelle Borg (9 months ago)
Question for you. Did you give the supplier the UPC barcodes to put on the products, or did you put them on yourself when the products arrived at your office, and then sent it to Amazon? Thanks
TheTutu4uboo (9 months ago)
Did you always have products shipped to you first?

Turn dwn the music :(
Leah Erbe (10 months ago)
Maybe a silly question but... When you are requesting samples and sending a small shipment to a distributor (for example, Amazon)... are you getting the sample first before approving the small first shipment? I'm a little confused on that because you said you get a few sent to you as a sample when you order the 50 piece order...
Bill Graper (11 months ago)
I think her cuteness is more distracting than the music. 😀

Hello, I would like to know how do you obtain images from Alibaba? Thank you
Claudia Chestelson (11 months ago)
Love your authentic way of helping beginners. Wish you were my neighbor.. Here's my question: I received my beautiful samples from China in just 13 days (including weekends) I sent my prototypes to my China manufacturer 21 days (including weekends) ago via USPS China keeps asking me where my package is. I went to USPS and learned that sometimes it takes 30 days from California to China??? No - I didn't buy a tracking number because it cost $15. more than my $22.00 shipping..So am I screwed ...is this normal from the US to China shipping time wise?. I'm so worried that all my prototypes and hard work are just lost forever :(( Thanks so much for answering !!
David Joseph (1 year ago)
Good video, so to be clear are you saying you would reccomend ordering 30 to 50 units as a sample instead of 1 unit?
Destini Ingoldsby (1 year ago)
Could you share alittle more details about setting up a Fedex International account? How much it cost and how to go about getting Alibaba or Aliexpress to use this shipping method instead of their preferred shipping method?

Hello Tracy, I have a question, when you put you logo on your product was it your Entrepreneurgirl logo, or another name brand?
my kizen (1 year ago)
Since it's private labeled, do we need to register it or to patent it? Do we need to buy a liability insurance for this product before we can sell it to Amazon? I am a private seller in Amazon, if I private label, do I need to shift to the Profesional Selling Plan?
my kizen (1 year ago)
Hi, thanks for this video. Its just what I need right now. About the samples, so in order to get a sample of an item we are interested in, we also have to buy it in bulk first? In your case, the 50 pcs? What happens if the quality is poor? And we cant private label it? What happens to the 49 pcs? I was thinking of getting samples from different company, does it mean I need to purchase a bulk order from each of these companies?
Mulligatani (1 year ago)

Hi Tracy, when you picked your what kind of barcodes did you have to send to your supplier UPC or FNSKU, and lets say you have 90 knives and theyre pack 30 per box, do you need 90 or the barcodes you sent them for each knife or just 3 for each box? and Also when you shipped to amazon how did you do it? One last question: Where do you get the Country of origin (China) stickers? thank you!

Moosefist (1 year ago)
Tracy, Thank you for your detailed info. explaining your experiences, issues and just the basics of how to succeed in selling private label on Amazon. Most other Youtube videos give sketchy info. which does not walk you through the process. I realized these are usually the people who make their money selling a course on Amazon FBA for a hefty price. I want you to know that your videos have made me feel more comfortable and confident with getting started with Amazon FBA Private label and I am in debt to you for the help you have given me (making sense of this process). Your also very attractive and pleasant which adds to the invaluable information your your graciously providing. Thanks. George S.

Tnt is a very large mnc. Packaging is more the suppliers problem. Dhl is very cheap in China too.
Carlos Aragon (1 year ago)
Do you not have Alibaba manufacturers ship directly to Amazon after you proof the samples?

Hey I was wondering if you had an update. Did the products end up selling well on Amazon? Did it turn a profit like you were hoping? Iam considering doing this and wanted to know how your experience is now.
Bud Step (1 year ago)

Mary Irene (1 year ago)
Hi, thanks for this video! I'm just wondering if it's advisable to start an LLC (or any legal company) before starting this? Like, for your logo on your private label, did you just have it designed and send it or were there legal steps you needed to take? Thanks a lot!

How do you do packaging? For example, if I want to sell perfume and I want it to be in a box with my design and logo how do you go about doing that? Do you ask the supplier of your product to do it, do you ship everything to yourself and then package it? Thanks!

Is it ethical to say you have 50 distribution centers while in reality only having the purchasing ability to buy 50 units? What if they are losing money on those 50 samples because they think you have big buying power?
EntrepreneurGirl (1 year ago)
I would work within whatever your own comfort zone is... my three samples cost me $100. I paid a small amount for the samples, plus all the shipping, plus I placed a large order as promised... so I feel it was totally within my ethical considerations.
Mar g (1 year ago)
great info. I'm trying g to research on my own because even the cheapest course is over $600. kind of hard to start if you have to pay all this entry fees. I like the info you put out. how do you deal with customs for large orders? is it built in in the shipment? or is it extra?
EntrepreneurGirl (1 year ago)
PS: You can always get a Customs Broker, too.
EntrepreneurGirl (1 year ago)
When I started, I stuck with air cargo and using Fed Ex or UPS as they take care of customs for you. The small part you have to do, they will walk you through if you need help (I had them on the phone while I did my first order). China manufacturers will include this and handle this for you sometimes, just make sure you request air cargo and door to door shipping.
Alfred Ramsaran (1 year ago)
I have learnt a great lot from your videos. Very informative especially the importation aspect from China. Could you say what are the custom duties for products imported from China?
Elizabeth Cepeda (1 year ago)
good job never left a message to anyone but you are a good instructor
Parvzy M (1 year ago)
This is a new venture so 1000+ units is out the question. 50 is more realistic.
Parvzy M (1 year ago)
Hi Tracy thanks for the video. Its very informative. I am struggling as I want private labelling and Ali baba manufacturers are stating I need to order 1000+ units. Could you give me some tips on that please.
LaDolcevita (1 year ago)
Great info but that music was really annoying and very distracting ting and made it hard to follow you. Not sure how you didn't get a headache from that awful organ playing in the background. Please leave it out for now on.
Justin Amos (1 year ago)
hey, I stumbled across your channel and love your stuff. I started an Amazon selling business and have found that I am doing much of the same approach as you. I'm learning a lot of new stuff from you as well, keep up the good work.
Danish Ahmed (1 year ago)
I was so focused into what she was saying I didnt gave a toss about what music was playing in the background !
Danish Ahmed (1 year ago)
No problem, "EG" :) !
EntrepreneurGirl (1 year ago)
Danish Ahmed thanks for having my back! :)
markman63 (1 year ago)
The reason why Chinese direct sellers can undercut their US wholesale customers is that the Chinese factory direct sellers don't pay customs when they send one item to the US. When you order 100 items for your FBA account then you end up paying customs and you end up competing with your supplier who can undercut you on amazon.
Rainbow 1225 (1 year ago)
Do new products sell quickly in the first few days or does it take time for the product to get well known/sold a lo?
EntrepreneurGirl (1 year ago)
Depends, each product is so different and with different demand levels.
