Looking for an Amazon FBA training?
Wish I’ve had this post on my hands back in the day when I was looking for an Amazon FBA course. Why? Well, because there are a lot of trainings selling sand castles in the sky.
Please take my advice. If someone is selling a $999 Amazon course promising you will drive a Lamborghini, never trust him. If someone had the secret formula to Coca-Cola:
- He wouldn’t share it
- He wouldn’t sell it for $999
Anyway, lucky for you, here’s my unbiased opinion on what I think are the 5 best Amazon Seller trainings you can find today online.
Why do I need an Amazon Seller training?
The word is spreading about the great potential of E-commerce and the potential of Amazon in particular.
E-commerce skills can ensure good earning potential, both now and in the future. There are many people interested in acquiring E-commerce skills and knowledge. Many people are keen to start an E-commerce business. That’s why E-courses are appearing on this subject.
They claim to teach you how to master E-commerce skills in a short time but, beware this courses are just the base to start something. You need to practice try and error before becoming an expert on such matters.
You may be wondering if these 5 top Amazon courses are worth your time and trouble. Let’s take a look at four of the latest E-commerce online courses available and see what they’re offering.

FBA with Dante
Dante Godfrey is well known on the Amazon seller community. Dante is an entrepreneur who has been selling goods on Amazon for about a year. This guy was able to generate +$300k last year on selling on Amazon.
Mr. Godfrey is a middleman. He brings buyers and products together in the Amazon marketplace. During 5 weeks divided on 6 modules he shows you with very detail:
- What do you need to get started on Amazon
- The type of seller you want to be (different selling options on Amazon)
- How to find a profitable product for FBA
- How to find a reliable US supplier (not an Asian one)
- How to win Amazon’s Buy Box
- How to dominate your niche against competitors
The course is limited 100 students so that he will have time to look after each one.
Honestly, this guy knows his stuff, but there are a few things I would like to point out regarding his course conditions.
No doubt, Mr. Godfrey’s course is excellent. But for that amount of money, I’d expect ample personal attention. With 100 students enrolled at a time, it’s doubtful if he’ll be able to give much personal attention to each one. Bear in mind, he’s also a seller on Amazon.
I’d rather engage the services of a reputable E-commerce consultant. It seems safer than taking my chances with a guy who doesn’t give refunds, just saying.
But that’s my personal opinion. Dante knows his business well and gives his students value for money, no doubt about it. It’s too bad that he doesn’t offer the ‘satisfaction guaranteed or money refunded’ line. It would be kind of reassuring, in my humble opinion.
FBA With Dante specifications:
- Cost: $1000
- Modules: 6
- Duration: 5 Weeks of Training
- One on one training: yes
- Money back guarantee: –

Are These Amazon Online Courses Worth Your Time and Money?
We’ve examined these courses and tools. Seeing what they charge and how much value they offer, one thing is clear. You get what you pay for in value. But no course can guarantee your smooth pathway in Amazon FBA success.
Some of us feel that a USD $10 ebook from Amazon Kindle gives as much information as the most expensive E-courses. No doubt, E-courses, and E-books can give you a map. Yet, it’s the hard work and dedication you apply that will reap rewards in end.
Whether you choose an E-course or a book about selling on Amazon to guide you hardly matters. Your own level of dedication and hard work will determine your success in E-commerce.
