Last time on Amazing FBA I sat down with John Cant of Rising Sun Commerce to chat about getting started selling on Amazon Japan. I’ll admit that in light of Brexit and American tariffs on Chinese imports, Part 1 of our interview got me incredibly excited about the opportunities available to Amazon sellers in the Japanese marketplace. The process strikes me as much more straightforward than I’d have anticipated, and Japan is now the third largest economy and third largest Amazon Marketplace in the world.

With Brexit on the horizon and U.S. imposing tariffs on Chinese imports, there couldn’t be a better time to expand your business to sell in Japanese on Amazon Japan. Japan offers FBA just like in the other major markets, the shipping costs from China to Japan are lower than to the US, UK or Europe, and Japan overtook the UK in 2017 to become the third largest Amazon marketplace in the world.
