What is the expected timeline for the business to start generating sales?
Our standard timeline for preparing a store to become fully operational is usually around 6 months. However, it’s important to note that this timeframe only accounts for the steps needed to get the store ready for inventory purchase, such as ungating, sourcing inventory, building supplier relationships, and other related tasks. It may or may not include the time required to generate revenue as that time varies and can range from 6-12 months.
What is the frequency of payments?
Amazon Marketplace: Payments for sales made on Amazon Marketplace are typically disbursed every 14 days, although there may be some variations based on the seller’s location and payment method. It’s important to note that these payout time frames are subject to change and may differ based on the specifics of your account.

What is the level of experience of you and your team?
- Together, our team has accumulated more than 50 years of experience
What are the types of clients that you collaborate with?
- The best type of clients are those who understand that this is a hands-off investment. Our team is more successful when working with clients who recognize that this business model is slow and steady, and not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. Scaling up the business takes time and is dependent on the platform we’re using. Our team adjusts and shifts strategies daily to support our partnership with our clients. Therefore, timelines can vary and be fluid, so understanding this aspect is key to our mutual success. Our clients are people who have capital but don’t have all the time to build, grow and manage their own Amazon store, this is why we take some of the weight off of your shoulders and help you run it.
Is customer service handled by Automate My Cashflow?
Our clients’ stores are ran as Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon). This is a service offered by Amazon that allows sellers to store their inventory in Amazon’s fulfillment centers. With FBA, Amazon takes care of the storage, packing, and shipping of the seller’s products to their customers.
Here’s how it works:
- A seller sends their products to Amazon’s fulfillment centers.
- Amazon stores the products in their warehouses.
- When a customer places an order for the seller’s product, Amazon picks, packs, and ships the product to the customer on behalf of the seller.
- Amazon also handles customer service and returns for the seller’s products.
