Last but not least, the fifth business model in the 5 Basic eCommerce Business Models is this:

5: Used Items

These are the people who specialize in handling other people’s used items and deal with second-hand goods. This may be the least exciting out of all the previously mentioned e-commerce business models, and some may wonder if there is much money to be made through this model.

Truth is, there is. Some used items, books, for example, need a large market like Amazon or eBay to find their true value. A textbook that sells for little in a sale can fetch a hundred dollars plus online - students and academics who urgently need that exact title have little chances of finding it locally and thus are prepared to pay a high price to get it online.

If you are still skeptical about whether businesses selling used items can be successful, you can look up this company called Momox. This is the second-largest seller on Amazon – and guess what they sell? Second-hand books, CDs, DVDs, video games and designer clothing. They turn over 100 million Euros a year, employ 1,000 staff, and one of their warehouses is as large as an Amazon fulfillment center!

We hope you have some better insights into which business models you want to follow when you start your Amazon business. Remember, in every kind of business models, it will require lots of patience and hard work to make things work. So do persevere on, and we wish you soon taste success on this great e-commerce journey! See you soon!
