Amazon Basics

Welcome to the Amazon FBA Crash Course

Lesson 1 Chapter 1 Module 1

(Start of Day 1)

Hello, welcome and thank you for enrolling for this course.

Now, for most of you, this is the first time you've heard about eCommerce and/or Amazon. So you might be here because you're just curious. And that's OK. If that's the case, please hang around until the end of the Amazon FBA crash course - you might just discover an exciting world you never thought existed.

If, however, you're looking for a 'get rich quick scheme' this is not the platform for you. Please don't waste your time.

For the rest of you... I'd like you to take a moment to give yourself a little pat on the back.

You are reading this right now because you were brave enough to do something about your financial situation. The fact that you're here tells me a couple of positive things about you:


You're not happy maintaining the status quo. You want something better. Whether that's a thriving financial future for you and your family, creating the means to move to a safer country, or simply wanting more freedom to do the things you love and spend time with the people you love, you are prepared to do what it takes to make your (and your family's) life better.


You are a determined individual. Good for you. Success follows determination and tenacity. Don't ever forget it!

Stay determined, follow the guidance on this platform, work hard and I promise: you will reap the benefits and become a thriving online entrepreneur.


I am Izak Niemann. I am the founder of ecomMEMBER and I have one goal: to see you become successful on the world's largest eCommerce platform, Amazon.

I've been 'playing the online game' for over two decades. As a fellow South African, I have faced every obstacle you can (and probably can't) think of when it comes to starting an online business.

I'm here to show you the roadmap to overcome those obstacles. Better yet, I'll take you by the hand and walk with you every step of the way.


Our first training platform was PanamaTribe. The students are in their final month of training as at 09/2019. Not one student complained or cancelled their training. 

I am loving this course tremendously!

Everything is explained easily and Izak makes it lots of fun. The knowledge that I'm gaining here is invaluable! A whole new world is opening up for me.  I just know that I will be successful in my Amazon FBA business because I was taught the RIGHT WAY to do things.

Thanks Izak! Thanks for caring and thanks for making this a journey that is going to change my family's lives!

I will recommend this course to anyone wholeheartedly!

Izak teaches us in a way that makes it exciting and we are learning not just from the knowledge he has, but also from his own experience. If we take what he has taught, and put it into practice, we have no doubt that our lives are going to change in so many ways.

I find the Amazon FBA training very informative and insightful.

With my marketing and digital marketing background, I get all excited as I learn something new every day.

Thank you for the very detailed training document, tips and information you share and being available for questions and your guidance.
