What is a Private Label?


Amazon private label is where a manufacturer creates a product which is then sold to another company to market and sell under their own brand name on Amazon.

To private label a product, find a product that you want to sell and then make it, or have a manufacturer make it for you. When making the product, it should have unique features to differentiate it from other similar products. You will need to create your own brand name so you can put your brands label on the product, so buyers know they’re buying from your brand.

Private label and dropshipping are not the same. Private label is where you sell products under your own brand name. Dropshipping is selling other company’s products.

Once you have added it to Amazon, if you choose to use Amazon FBA, you will need to ship your inventory to one of Amazon’s warehouses.
