Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Done For You program by Just One Dime?

Using our 50+ years of combined experience, we launch, manage, and grow your Amazon brand into monthly cash flow. You can keep this as a passive income machine while you live your life and do whatever you want, or you can let us grow it huge and then sell it so you cash out at 50 times your investment.

Is this drop-shipping?  

This is not drop-shipping like every single “Amazon automation” model out there. Drop-shipping has extremely thin margins and zero brand value. When drop-shipping, you are selling someone else's brand which means if you want to sell your store some day, the buyer is not getting followers, a brand, or anything of value except a system.

We build you an Amazon BRAND—your own brand—a brand you own that people grow to love. When you run a drop-shipping store, the brands you are selling control what happens to their products you are selling. You have zero ultimate control.

Tim Ferris rightly said, "Your network is your net worth." When you have millions of people who love your brand, you can sell that brand for 50 times your up-front investment.

What makes your program better than others?

1. This is not drop-shipping.

2. We build you long term brand value which makes you far more money in the long run.

3. We manage over 100 million in annual revenue for Amazon stores.

What is the investor's and Just One Dime's responsibilities?

We build the Amazon business for you.

You invest your capital.

We invest our time and 50+ years of combined experience to accomplish in months what takes most Amazon sellers 3-6 years to learn.

What are my fees?

$10,000 per product launch fee. This includes us finding and differentiating products, finding and negotiating with suppliers, managing build out of products including molds if needed as well as managing product inspections, shipping of products to Amazon's fulfillment centers, creating the listings, building PPC campaigns, split-testing photos, optimizing the listings for ranking and conversion.

15% of total sales revenue due every 3 months. We invoice you every three months after product launch so your store has a chance to generate profit first. If you decide to sell the business some day, we receive 15% of the sale price.

$3,650 annual store maintenance fee due 12 months after signing contract and breaks down to $10/day. Covers all store admin such as customer communication, responses to seller feedback and reviews, A to Z claims, credit card chargebacks, inauthentic claims, Amazon requesting commercial invoices, etc.

To start, we require a minimum of launching three products which means to get started you need a minimum of $30,000 up front.

What are my profits?

Let's say we launch headphones that sell for $100.

$60 goes to all your costs, leaving you with $40 of profit.

–$15 manufacturing & shipping–$15 Amazon referral fee

–$15 to Just One Dime

–$10 PPC

–$5 FBA fee= $40 profit to you

We only sell higher ticket products with strong profit margins (30%-60% on average).

How does communication work?

You meet with your Amazon Brand Builder once a week over video chat to ask any questions you have and for them to show you the progress, share product ideas, forecast profit margins, and give you an understanding of what to expect.

We don’t invest in any product without your 100% approval.

You chat your Amazon Brand Builder any time you want throughout the week with any questions you have.

Can you explain more in depth what you do for the investor?

Absolutely. Here is what we do for you:

Open your Amazon seller central account.

Find a minimum of three products for you.

Find you a supplier and negotiate prices.

Build out your plan of differentiation.

Manage product inspection.

Ship your product to Amazon’s fulfillment center.

Get professional photos of your productCreate your listings.

Launch your products.

Run and optimize PPC ads.

For all services that one would normally outsource, such as photography, product inspection, hazmat/MSDS/certifications, filling for a trademark, product videos, graphic designs, we charge for those on a case by case basis.

Will you be using my current Amazon store or will you open a new one?

If you already have an Amazon store and it's a healthy account and you do not plan on selling anything from that store, we will use your current store.

If you do not already have an Amazon seller account, or have an Amazon seller account that you are already selling in, then we will open a new Amazon seller account for you from a server so that there is no connection between your two stores.

This de-risks you so that if for some reason one of the Amazon seller accounts was suspended, the other would not go down with it. You will need an LLC or limited company to do this.

Will I get access to the Amazon store?

Yes, full admin access and you can see everything.

How much work do I need to do? What is my involvement?

You invest and enjoy the profits. The goal of this partnership is that you invest money while we invest our time and experience. That way this store become a cash-producing machine for you—100% passive income. You meet with the Amazon Brand builder once a week over video chat so he/she can share the progress and answer any questions you have.

Will you advise on who we should use for any sales tax and essential business requirements?

100% yes.

Will you be training/mentoring me?

You will learn a ton as you will have a front row seat to everything, but this is not a training or mentorship as those are much more time intensive. That would require a different pay structure.

However, you will be meeting once a week with your Amazon brand builder and you can ask any questions you have and will learn a ton along the way.

How do you justify 15% revenue share? This seems really high. Is this negotiable?

The 15% revenue share is based on years and years of experience, making mistakes you don't have to make and learning how to create massive cash flow on Amazon. You can set out and take years to learn this at the level we know it. Or you can let us build it for you and move to profits fast. The 15% is not negotiable. We know our team's worth and how much money we can make you.

Why do you have a minimum requirement of 3 products up front?

We want to grow this big. The more products we launch up front, the higher your profit margins will be. By ordering all the products at one time from the same supplier we can get major discounts which increases your profit margins.

What if I can afford the $30,000 fee but not all the product costs right away?

Not a problem. You will pay the $30,000 up front and then we will launch each of the three products as you have the funds available for each.

How long will it take to be profitable?

Anywhere from 3 months to 6 months is a safe range. We are interested in long term massive growth. If you are looking to take out profits within a few months, we wouldn't be interested in doing this with you.

How long until you expect the store to be self-funding and need no more external investment?

To grow this fast as fast as possible, each new product needs its own funding up front. The more products you can launch up front, that faster we can move to self-funding. Ideally, after each launch, the product needs no more funding because the revenue takes care of reorders etc. Once we launch 10 products you could potentially start using profit from those to launch clusters of new products without outside funding. This is when it starts to scale huge.

What criteria do you use to pick a product?

The same criteria we use for our own products. At the end of the day, we find products that can make you and us money.

Do you count the $10,000 fee and one time costs like photography as part of the expenses to calculate margins?

It's similar to the up front costs of opening a new brick and mortar business.

All one time costs like the 10K fee and photography are not included when calculating margin because they are one time, sunk costs.

How much do one times costs like photography, product inspection, filing for a trademark, and graphic design cost?

Photography per product batch $800-$3500

Product inspection $300-$500

Filling for a trademark $1000-3000

Logo design $100-$500Branded website $1000-$10,000 (a huge range depending on what you want)

There is a ton more we do but those are the most common.

We treat this on a case by case basis because there are so many variables. It could be from mid hundreds to a few thousand. We will give you options to pick from and plan it out with you.

What kind of investors are you looking for?

For someone who has capital but little to no Amazon experience and wants to invest in an Amazon store, this is ideal. Or for a client who has a big brand but wants us to build out their Amazon store. It also can be for a client who has a ton of Amazon experience but would love for us to scale an additional store for them, on the side.

Just to give you perspective, we received over 500 applicants within 10 days after sending just 2 emails. Only 10% of those applicants were invited to book a meeting with us.

Of those 10%, just a portion of those are being approved for this program.

We will only work with people who are 1) fun to work with, 2) think long term, and 3) have capital to invest.

Who owns the business?

You own the business and the Amazon store 100%. If you choose to sell it for a massive exit, we receive 15% of the sale. All money from Amazon goes directly into your bank account. We invoice you for all due fees.

What business costs do I have to cover?

Cost of products (including shipping, product inspection and photography): $5,000-$10,000 per product. The goal: each product becomes self sustaining, meaning you don't have to put more capital into it once it's ranking and selling.

For all third party vendor type services—things you would normally outsource such as product inspections, photography, website building, funnels, FB ads—you cover the cost for these.

In your experience, what makes this relationship successful in the long run?

After a combined decades of business partnerships, it always comes down to two things: 1) Total transparency about money and 2) Excellent communication. The two top reasons for divorce in marriage or business goes back to communication and money. This is why we place huge emphasis on both.

What if I want to take over the business?

If we pull out within the first two years, we do not receive the 15% revenue from the last 90 days.

If you pull out within the first two years, you owe us 30% of the total sales revenue of the last 90 days.

You may do that at any time with a 90 day notice and we may do the same with a 90 day notice. If either party pulls out within the first two years, there is a departure fee for the party who pulls out. We do this to discourage someone from cutting out early before we all have a chance to grow this huge and make money.

How often will you respond to my questions? Can I ask questions at any time? Can I pick up the phone and call you?

Any time you have a question, you can send a message in our Slack group and we answer within 24 hours.

All communication will be in Slack only. We do not do phones calls, text, Skype, WeChat, WhatsApp, or any other application for communication. This eliminates any confusion over who said what by keeping all communication in one place.

How does the contract agreement work?

It's an agreement between you or your LLC and Just One Dime's company.

How much will the manufacturing, shipping, and photography cost?  

At minimum, you will pay for manufacturing, shipping and photography. Prices depend on many variables but an approximate range of costs for all these combined per product is $5,000 to $10,000. We will work with you. The Amazon Brand builder will show you options based on budget and potential profit.

How do you justify the $10,000 fee per product?   

We have made all the mistakes having done this for years so you don't have to make the same mistakes. You could take years to learn what we have learned, or you can invest in us to build you an Amazon store that grows huge.

The $10,000 is nothing compared to what you and we can make together. The big money is in the long term growth of your Amazon business. The $10,000 covers two things: our time and our 50+ combined years of experience. We will find products, find suppliers, create a differentiation plan which can include a product mold if needed, negotiate prices, set up production, manage product inspection and shipping, create the listing, optimize it for conversion, split test photos, build PPC campaigns, and optimize those campaigns as long as we are doing business together. Your $10,000 is a one time cost. That goal is that you invest into each product up front, and after that, each product becomes self-funding, meaning you do not have to insert capital any more.

How do I know the product will be profitable?   

We only launch products based on in depth research where we already know what the customer is looking for and with huge profit potential. The Amazon Brand builder will show you product options at various costs and show you forecasted profit potentials so you know what to expect. We won't launch a product without your approval.

How long will it take me to get my $10,000 fee and product costs back?   

If we launch three products at $100 per sale, selling 40 times a day each, you would earn back a $50,000 total investment by day 4.

At $40 profit per sale, your $50,000 investment grows to $50,000 profit in 10 more days.

These are just examples of what we can do with high profit, high ticket products. To be clear, it's more of a gradual increase, starting at a few sales with high PPC costs per day, and sales velocity increasing by the day as PPC costs go down.

Can you give me a guarantee?

We have never failed in any Amazon store—every single one has been profitable.

An angel investor invests in a company in a new product that has never been built before and understands he/she could lose every penny. There is no guarantee. They take the risk on the credibility of the team.

If we failed you, our greatest risk would be to lose our credibility and that is not something we are willing to lose. It takes a lifetime to build a reputation but only 5 minutes to destroy it.

We have been building Amazon business for years and we know how to generate massive cash for your Amazon store. But just like any investment into any business, stocks, or real estate, we cannot give you any guarantee. You take on the risk of investing in our 50+ years of combined experience.

You call this passive. Nothing is truly passive.

Yes, it is passive income for you, not only according to the IRS for all passive income entities but for any real passive investor, thus the name. You are not building this business nor are you expected to. That is our job. You invest money and we invest time and 50+ years of collective experience. We are not building it together but building it for you. The purpose of the meetings is not for you to help us run the business, but to be fully cognizant of the decisions we are making and the plan and where we are headed.

What additional, if any, services will I have to pay for?

Anything you would normally outsource will require a service fee such as photography, graphic design, applying for your trademark for you, launching an ecommerce website, building Facebook ads, etc.

How do the payments to suppliers, Just One Dime, and Amazon work?

Our company sends you invoices for all payments for the 15% of sales, the annual store maintenance fee, and payments to suppliers for any services. Invoices are payable to our company directly.

All payments for FBA and PPC fees come directly from your debit or credit card attached to your Amazon store.

All payments from Amazon sales are directly deposited into your bank every two weeks.

Who does the accounting?  

You do your own accounting for your costs and profits and we do our own for ourselves. However, you will have full access to all the fees and revenue in the Amazon seller central account and if you have any questions from me a long the way you can ask any time.

Why are you doing this? Why don't you just invest your own money and receive 100% of the profits?  

Seth's tax advisor and CPA is the same team who does Robert Kiyosaki's taxes. He once told Seth, "If you want to grow your wealth, don't just invest your own money. Invest other people's money." We realize by investing your money and our 50+ combined years of experience we can make far more money together than apart.

We would rather own 10% of a watermelon than 100% of a grape.

We want to grow our network of entrepreneurs into a strong community of high level entrepreneurs who want to change the world some day. We can do amazing things far and beyond Amazon. This program acts as sort of a filter, allowing us to get to know the best players in entrepreneurialism.

How do I get started? What are my next steps?  

First of all, we would need to know, from a 1 to a 10, 1 being the least, 10 being the most, how serious are you about this opportunity? We are only looking for investors who are dead set on making this happen and ready to start right now.

If you are serious about this opportunity and ready to start yesterday, then fill out the application. Our team will take a close look at it and email you back. If we are interested in learning more then we email you a link to book a meeting with our team to discuss all the details. We ask you a ton of questions and you ask us a ton of questions.

If after the meeting we both like the terms and we want to partner with you on this, we email you an agreement. Once you sign that you wire your up-front investment and we hit the ground running.
