I talk with a good number of sellers who get discouraged because of ‘seller saturation’ (they find a great product to sell, then a ton of sellers jump in and sell the same product, thus the original seller’s listing becomes ‘saturated’).

I’ve enjoyed less competition AND higher profits when I combined two or more different p roducts into one newly-created Amazon product (called a ‘Bundle’), OR when I’ve combined multiples of the SAME product (called a ‘multi-pack’) and created the listing in the Amazon catalog for the first time. In either case, I’ve been ‘first to market’ with the multipack or bundle, giving a huge head start over the competition (or many times NO competition)…And the more unique the bundle/multipack, the less change you’ll have of any seller jumping on your coattails.

Creating Product Bundles on Amazon for Better Product Placement | Jessica Larrew. I was asked recently to talk about making bundles on Amazon. This is something that I do if I feel the bundle will really benefit the products included. One of the reasons would be that the items alone sell for too little to make a profit after fees, but bundled together, they have more profit potential. Another reason is if the items sell together a lot, so why not save the buyer a step, therefore insuring that you get the sale for all of the items included. I do not agree with making bundles, just to give you the exclusive edge. In my opinion, the items should be the same brand, and go together normally.
