I think it is about time to admit – my son Miles speaks better Chinese than me now – just a bit over 2 years old now and he really dominating the conversations now. I’m trying my best to keep up…I’ll keep you posted if it changes.
I’m heading up to Shanghai for the first week of September – speaking about cross border free trade zones at the biggest English Wechat conference – CHat conference, also will have a booth there if you stop by – would be great to catch up! They also gave me a 10% coupon to listeners, if you want the link to signup as well as a 10% discount hop on over to the show notes for today at globalfromasia.com/episode136
And it is high in Hong Kong audit season! Tons of listeners and friends and clients working on audits or looking for a CPA. I have been hard at work maing a CPA directory on the site with a matchmaking profile – if you want to check it out head on over to globalfromasia.com/hongkong-audits/
And Chris Davey told me Xero accounting is now connecting with a Singapore bank – yet still no HK banks. Which is unfortunate as most Amazon sellers use Xero for the A2X accounting integration – which automatically pulls in your data there. Guess we will have to wait.
Ok, and speaking of Amazon sellers – today we have a treat- Coran Woodmass is on the show giving some massive value bombs on how you can sell your FBA business for decent returns – as well as a special offer to help listeners out – so let’s listen in.
Topics Covered in this Episode
We caught up at DC Barcelona, as well as in your current base of Prague – great to have you on the show Coran!
So you are a broker – specializing in FBA listing sales. This seems like a new thing – how did you get into it?
Can someone really sell their Amazon account?
Amazon FBA Model
What attracts buyers to this kind of business, the Amazon FBA model?
What are some of the things buyers are looking for in Amazon FBA businesses?
How does supply chain come into play here? We at Global From Asia talk a lot about Chinese factories and Asia business – is there a pro or con if your FBA supplier is based in China versus a “home market” supplier?
Does Location Matter?
Does it matter if the seller is located in China, Hong Kong, USA, Europe? Does location of seller matter, or where they registered the company (maybe that is 2 different questions).
How long would the typical process start? Is it a business that is being sold, or an asset, an account?
And then once the transfer is complete, how is the transition period?
Can you share some recent examples of a transaction. Of course you don’t need to disclose client names, products, etc but this would help people get their heads around it.
So listeners interested in buying or selling – you’re the guy to talk to? How can they reach out or take next steps? Thanks so much Coran!
