The merchandise is purchased online from different retail stores and wholesalers and is then directly sent to an independent Amazon Prep Center. Within one business day, the Prep Center receives the products, labels, and ships them to the Amazon Fulfillment Center, for a small fee. All of the items are sold through Amazon FBA so they are stored in the Amazon facilities, and Amazon takes care of the shipments.
The Seller oversees the activities of the team and manages repayment of credit cards. The business is essentially run by two contractors based in India. They take care of product sourcing, creating listings, ordering products, create shipping labels and manage prices. The team is aware of the sale and would be happy to continue with the Buyer.
Though right now the business is using the arbitrage model, the new owner could also focus on wholesale accounts. That is to say, since this Amazon Seller Central account is ungated in almost every category and for many brands, the Buyer could sell nearly every wholesale product without having to worry about first getting ungated for that product's category.
*A competitor complained to Amazon that this business is not allowed to sell Linksys products, so Amazon blocked sales of those items. The issue has been cleared with Amazon, but the Seller has decided to not sell Linksys products because they aren't even 1% of sales and it is not worth the hassle.
