You know the story.
It begins by either selling products on Amazon using FBA, or just via affiliate links on your website.
Then, you hit a plateau.
Or you don’t see results quickly enough and you begin looking for answers. One of the most prominent ideas is to get advice from other sellers who have seen the success you hope to achieve.
The best place to find this advice? Amazon Forums.
Not just the one on Amazon (as good as it may be). There are a great number of places that seller digitally congregate to swap tips, advice, struggles and e-commerce marketing strategies.
In this article, we aim to share as many of the best online Amazon seller forums as we could muster.
Our List of Top Amazon Forums for Sellers
Ecommerce Fuel is an advanced-level community for e-commerce owners making at least 7-figures.
Yeah, those making more than $1 million in revenue from their store(s) can join and receive some of the best training on the market from experts making millions a year in their own online shopping ventures.
There is even a residence Amazon expert, as well as many members who use FBA.
Note: If you aren’t at the 7-figure mark yet in your online store, you can still learn from all of the content. There is an extensive blog and an active podcast — all about e-commerce.
Level: All Levels
If you sell on Amazon, you’ve likely been here.
It’s the place to interact with other sellers, keep up with news and changes and you can pick up a tip or two along the way.
Essentially, it’s the bulletin board at the bazaar.
At more than 49,000 sellers, the FBA subreddit is full of great, decent and bad things to look at.
I labeled it “intermediate” due to a few potential problems:
- Negativity: Forums in general can be a place to gripe and this one is no exception. (e.g. “Race to the bottom” has become “Battle for pennies”.)
- Bad Advice: There’s a lot of shady tactics and things that won’t work. Stick to the upvotes and you should be ok.
- Time-Suck: You can easily spend a ton of time looking at things that don’t really matter, but sound cool.
Be careful out there.
Level: All Levels
This subreddit has far fewer members at 912 (at the time of writing). The lower number isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Information is less cluttered and won’t be as big of a time commitment.
There’s a lot of news for all level of sellers and some great “beginner” content that will help those who are starting out.
Don’t get me wrong. Warrior Forums are a great place to find ideas and even some help from time to time.
But there is a ton of spammy stuff, too.
Beginners with the itch to attain goals that are unattainable can be succumb by borderline fraudsters on this notorious platform.
Take it all with a grain of salt and verify everything.
A good rule is to use the information gathered here as a starting point. Do further research on every tactic or resource given until you are sure it’s sound.
Also, pay attention to the person/group posting it. There are ratings and other criteria that can be beneficial.
WebRetailer is a hub for e-commerce products.
In addition to a list of products, they offer a forum. The forum isn’t as lively as many of the others on our list, but it is good for beginners and worth a scroll from time-to-time from all sellers.
This forum says it’s for AMZ Tracker users, but can be seen by anyone who visits the link.
It’s decent enough, especially if you’re looking for products to boost your shop’s productivity and growth.
Bonus Resource: Here’s a post in the forum that lists all of the best posts in the forum. Handy stuff.
Quora is the foremost question/answer forum online.
Due to the popularity, there have been a number of questions about Amazon. So many, they’ve created a specified “Amazon Seller Space” to put all of the info.
Can’t find what you want? Just ask your own question and you’ll get some answers for your specific problem.
Older than Quora and not as popular nowadays is Yahoo Answers.
But it’s still a decent place to gather information. It’s also another place that you can ask your questions and people who know the answer will give you feedback.
Level: Shopify + Amazon Users
Shopify is a great place to start an online store quickly and easily.
As a way to further help store owners, Shopify offers a very in-depth community. And since there is some crossover between their platform and the world’s largest online retailer — there are plenty of Amazon topics.
If you don’t use Shopify, there’s still some value there. But I wouldn’t be a regular watcher.
Level: Intermediate – Advanced
At more than 62,000 members, this is one of the largest closed groups dedicated to online selling.
While it’s not 100% about Amazon, there’s a ton of crossover and many of the members are versed on the platform.
