There are numerous Amazon sellers all around India that have taken to the platform and have used it to run their personal businesses. People are often confused about the difference between an Amazon seller and vendor. Anyone can be a seller on Amazon, where they sell directly to the customers of Amazon and have limited advertising options for their products. Only Amazon invited people can be vendors on Amazon, where they sell to Amazon and have multiple advertising options for their products.
It is not easy to be a successful seller on Amazon but if one does indeed succeed, they will definitely be happy that they made the leap to try. Sellers who wish to market their products on Amazon must choose the required selling plan that they wish to use and then proceed. They can then sell their products on Amazon as third-parties.
In order to become a successful Amazon seller, people need to have as many clients as they can so that their total sales amount can be increased. There are many ways in order to increase the number of clients that one receives so that they can achieve whatever goal they may have in mind.
Virtual offices are one of the best ways for Amazon sellers to grow their business in India. A virtual office is an office that does not have a physical mailing address and does not exist in a specific location. Understanding the concept of virtual offices clearly and applying it effectively can be an incredible way for businesses to flourish. There are many ways in which Amazon sellers can grow their business in India and a few of them are discussed below.
Some ways in which Amazon sellers can improve their business in India(through virtual offices)
These are some of the ways in which Amazon sellers can improve their business in India using virtual offices:
Getting a Principal Place of Business(PPOB)
A PPOB is used by a seller as to their main base of operation in a state if they have more than a single warehouse spread across a state. All of the warehouses will be associated with the seller and they need to select a primary location for their business. Having many warehouses can be confusing to handle all at once. Thus, the seller should choose one of the warehouse addresses as a PPOB.
The remaining warehouse addresses will be considered as Additional Place of Business(APOB) locations. The PPOB has to be registered under the GST scheme for it to be able to be used by the seller for their products. It is especially difficult for small-time businesses to register their PPOB under the GST scheme. Virtual offices can be extremely helpful here in getting the registration done as easily as possible.
They provide the seller with fantastic address locations that can definitely help the business. The seller can then get themselves enrolled in the Fulfilled By Amazon(FBA) program which is a great initiative by Amazon that offers many benefits to those who use the Amazon platform to sell their products(GST registration is required for this). In the FBA program, Amazon will take care of storing and shipping the sellers’ products so that they can use the extra time they get to concentrate on their business. The Pay on the Delivery feature can be used so that the sellers can get their order fulfilled and then have their funds deposited straight in their bank account.
Getting more customers
Having a fantastic virtual office address will definitely invite more customers to try the sellers’ products. This is because an address belonging to a prestigious location will entice customers and help them trust the seller more. Thus, it is imperative that the seller picks the right location. Getting a virtual office will also supply sellers with extra aid like that of a virtual administrative assistant.
Virtual administrative assistants will help sellers market their products online through social media platforms. In case customers have any queries about the seller’s products, they can have them resolved by the virtual administrative assistant. Having someone there to assist with customer care at each and every step of the way is great support for the seller as they can focus the extra time they get on making their products as high-quality as possible. This will also make the customers much happier at the end of the day.
Ability to register a business in multiple states easily
Businesses that have their operations in more than a single state will have to register their business in all of them. Before, people used to have an office space in each and every state and register them individually under the scheme. This cost a lot of time and money to do and the tedium associated with the registration irritated many people. Now, with the introduction of virtual offices in India, sellers can use a single virtual address to register their business in all the states. This will save an immense amount of time and money for the seller which they can now invest in their products.
Input Tax Credit(ITC)
ITC is something that can be availed when a tax that is paid by a business when they purchase something can be used to reduce the total tax that they have to pay when they make a sale. It is a fantastic feature under the GST scheme that will help sellers reduce the amount of tax that they will have to pay. ITC has also helped do away with the cascading effect of taxes that existed before the introduction of the GST scheme.
In order to avail this, GST registration is of course required as previously mentioned and as we know by now, using a virtual office can greatly help in getting the registration done in a cheap and simple way. Sellers can use the money that they save from paying reduced taxes to the government on making their products the best that they can be.
