For the past three years, the Million Dollar Case Study has been the go-to resource for Amazon sellers who want to know how to sell on Amazon FBA.

It’s not just a video series. It’s an in-depth Amazon case study.

We actually launch a real product on Amazon, with real money and real suppliers and real goals. For us, it’s a passion project.

Amazon selling is an incredible way for average, everyday people to become entrepreneurs and start earning money on their own terms. But this case study is not about the money. We’ve already experienced the financial (and freedom building) benefits of selling on Amazon.

This Amazon case study is about education.

We provide FREE, comprehensive content for Amazon sellers.

We know you’re just getting started and you need resources, without dropping thousands of dollars on a course. So, we’re passing what we’ve learned on to you in weekly video sessions, blog posts, interactive workbooks and opportunities to chat live with us!

Our educational mission extends beyond Amazon. Remember when we said it’s not about the money?

We donate 100% of our product proceeds to Pencils of Promise.

They build schools in developing countries to help children get access to the education they need for a strong foundation. 

We love doing the Million Dollar Case Study. It’s a team-wide effort and we value every opportunity it gives us to connect with sellers just like you.

Make sure you tune in!

Who are the hosts of the Million Dollar Case Study?

Rolando Galeana

You probably don’t know who I am yet since I’m the new kid on the block, but you will be seeing more of me in the coming days. I have the good fortune to be Greg’s new sidekick for our next Million Dollar Case Study! EPIC, right!

Much like you, I’m a Jungle Scouter and entrepreneur who has spent years chasing down new opportunities in the e-commerce space. I love the freedom building, solopreneur lifestyle and the thrill of a new venture – like Amazon selling.

But, I don’t believe being a solopreneur means you have to fly solo. That’s what I love about the Million Dollar Case Study. I followed it way back before I started working at Jungle Scout and now I’m STOKED to be working side-by-side with Greg (my entrepreneur man-crush) to bring you Season 4.

Greg Mercer

Of course, you all know Greg. He’s the reason you know about Jungle Scout in the first place. He founded it and gave it life.

Greg has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, from selling candy around the block in his childhood to building his first eCommerce product in his teens. He began selling on Amazon while he was working as an engineer, on the hunt for a career path with more freedom.

He realized finding a product was a long, manual, time-consuming process. So, Jungle Scout was born. Today, it’s grown from a company of just Greg (and his awesome wife/first business partner Liz) to a team of over 90 people worldwide!

(Oh, and meanwhile, Greg’s own Amazon business is still going. It currently has over 200 SKUs and earns 8-figures per year! Crazy!)

He’s been the brains behind the first few Million Dollar Case Study seasons and I know he’s beyond excited to kick this one off.

What’s new about this Million Dollar Case Study?

This Amazon case study will be bigger and better than the ones we’ve done before.

We’ll be doing a LIVE AMA every week on Thursdays. You can ask us questions in the live chat and we’ll be there to help you!

  1. I’ve been researching Amazon FBA for weeks. Blogs Facebook Instagram YouTube. This site is the First Resource I have found that seems genuine in helping me become an entrepreneur as a beginner in the FBA game. I have to write down my plan to begin my process. I commit to doing that this week. I’m only just beginning but I’m very excited to have found jungle Scout and the million-dollar case study. I look forward to continued contact and sharing my successes.
    Thank you,
    John Coble

  2. My family have been in America for decades and have never made enough money to take a vacation. I see my father’s health deteriorating everyday as works like a dog to make ends meat. If I become a successful Amazon Entrepreneur, he can finally relax and spend time with his family.

  3. Hi everyone! I just subscribed to JS $49/month plan and registered to watch the MDCS season 4. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn for free as I can not afford to pay $499 or more for some guru’s course. I will stop watching all those FBA videos on YouTube because I got info overload and now just confused about the how, what, where and when of all this. I tend to believe I can learn everything I need to know right here. My family hopes I’m right.

  4. Hi there,

    I found some product niches using junglescout and also found potential suppliers on Alibaba. However, I’m a bit confused how to judge product safety certificates by manufacturers especially for food related items eg Tupper ware or silicon molds or products for kids like baby blankets etc. I read that as an importer it would be my responsibility to ensure product safety. How do you make sure your imported products comply with fda and/or cpsc? Do you get product safety certificates before selling or what the common procedure besides importing and cashing in after selling on Amazon? It would be awesome to get some advice as a newbie since I’d like to be compliant with product safety requirements.

    1. Hi Mia,

      Great questions! I recommend picking up the help of a local logistics company in the US. Not only can they help out with these tough questions, but they can also negotiate down rates for your shipping and make the process a lot easier. Plus, they’ll get you bonded, which can save you from any potential legal issues that might (but very rarely!!) arise when doing international shipping.

      I hope that’s helpful.

  5. Hello,
    I have a question about the MDSC criteria for product selection. I am brand new to Amazon selling and trying to find my first product.

    I signed up for the Web App and Chrome Extension last month and watched all of season 4 of the MDCS.

    But I am confused about applying the criteria of low star ratings (+/-3.7). If I have found a few product ideas that have high demand and low competition, several in the top 10 of the niche with fewer than 50 reviews, but the star ratings are all 4 stars or above, is it not recommended to proceed? In other words, should I always as a rule of thumb pursue only products I can improve upon, or is it perfectly fine as an entry level seller to select a product that already has favorable reviews, just not so many?

    1. Cynthia,

      Great question! Star ratings are just one way of many to look for a product opportunity and a “rule of thumb.” So you’re not beholden to it. Improving upon a product is always a good idea, but there’s “more than one way to skin a cat.” Consider, too, the reviews themselves. Even in the products that are doing well with good reviews, what are the reviewers saying could be better? That will help guide your decision, too.

      Plus, is every possible variation of that product available for shoppers? For example, are all the “widgets” black or silver? But there’s no blue or gold? Etc.

      Hope that’s helpful!

  6. Hello Together,

    i bought yesterday the bundle for 499. Now i want to learn with the MDCS.

    Should i start with Season 4 or Season 1?
    Is Season 4 enough or would i learn more if i would watch all 4 Seasons?
    What is the difference between the Seasons from Workflow?

    Best Regards

  9. Hi Greg and Rolando, I love your video you created on MDCS. I am a new entrepreneur in doing the amazon business. You asked about, what I would do if I make an extra 3000 – 5000 USD per month? Well! Its a bit versatile question as human mind. But I think myself to do something on tropical disease research and innovation. By the way, in my professional career I am a researcher in malaria.
    Anyway, I am interested to do some business as well to get some funding and as I can fund the research wing.
    Hopefully the Amazon business will best fit myself accordingly.

  10. Thank you for what you are doing. I’m from Ukraine. In your paid version, is it possible to change the language to Russian? .Because my English is very weak.

  11. Greg,
    I have been working on several products to launch on Amazon, but I have not launched because I not been able to find the right product with a reasonable margin. In fact, I just bailed on launch because after looking at competitive pricing I don’t feel I can compete. I am almost 60 and we have had series of situation that kept us from saving for our future. So, I am hoping for a solution for my retirement years….

  12. do you have to list a product through brand registry when starting out or can you just create a new product listing?

  13. I have a two step plan with the money. 1 – Pay off my giant student loan debt. 2 – Quit my job and focus on my travel blog…which means traveling full time!

  14. This is exciting. Looking forward to learning and hopefully start a new chapter in my life. Thank you for opening this door of opportunity for me.

  15. Hi. My name is Damir and I’m from Croatia, Europe. Will be the problem for me to sell on Amazon, depending of my location? Thanks in advance for your answer. Greetings from Croatia.

  16. I am very excited to learn all the new tips and tools…I really like to know if you like to invest in one category and have your own brand,how to get that brand popular and noticable and how you can find good products in that category

  17. Hi Greg

    Thank You so much for bringing another series and I cant wait till it start. I am looking for financial freedom which will give me peace of mind and abiliy to give to the world to most needed.

    Thanks for your work
