AOA,
I am going to start a Amazon business account here in US but it will be operated by someone in pak (virtual assistance), my question was what sort of percentage of profit i should pay to this party? They are not investing in the business, so i wanted to see if someone is already involved in such a venture then how do you distribute proceeds.
thanks!

yes i thing there are 3 to 4 person on single account and obviouly salery other expenses office rent and other miscellaneous kind of expenses but in my opinion if you make him agreed on 40 this will be a good deal bcz i have seen people giving outsider 25 to 35 percent also so else up to you and up to him bro

35 to 40 % is way too much
VA normally charges either less than 20 % of the net sale or they get a fixed salary if the volume is big.
while covid-19 I had experienced working VA
is it good for both parties​

AOA,
I am going to start a Amazon business account here in US but it will be operated by someone in pak (virtual assistance), my question was what sort of percentage of profit i should pay to this party? They are not investing in the business, so i wanted to see if someone is already involved in such a venture then how do you distribute proceeds.
thanks!

You are right, but my question was a simple one not asking about details on how to start a Amazon business account.
:)
are you in the planning phase or have you are done your homework?
?
it is not like you make a Facebook account or siasat.pk account as start posting
it is a real business with a virtual interface
have you done the product hunting & Supply change management?​

All that work will be done by Pak party, my work is to create Amazon account with a credit limit for purchasing. Product search and all other aspects will be by them.

what non sense, this forum needs non toxic topics too and there are may businessmen and job experienced ppl here, what's so wrong to ask about an interesting topic? or you just want to ask about nawaz sharif whereabouts?​

Wrong forum to ask for this kind of stuff. This isn't a business forum.
there is a segment called
Bussiness talk in this forum
some productivity should be welcomed

Why thinking about paying a percentage? It has to be a fixed rate. You don't know what sort of profit it's going to be, considering so many hidden FBA charges, then returns and refunds and all that. I'm an Amazon seller in UK with 10+ years experience, dealing with many VA's from Pakistan. Fixed rate is the only way to go without making it complicated. You can always increase the rate if VA is performing good.

WAS,

You should pay about 5-8 dollars per hour per person on an account. If more than 2 people on account, rate goes a bit down.

Starting new, you will need to build forecast potential salary tiers, incentives and commissions.

Going on a profit sharing percentage will be shooting yourself in the foot even before you start.

I will not call it a start up, its just setting up an Amazon account, the VA is the one to bring in the business and hence some revenue.

Please advise what do you mean by a fixed rate? My idea was to pay them a percentage from Net profit, after all expenses deducted. This way, if its a losing business we don't pay anything. But if i put them on salary, i will be adding on a big overhead.
i will welcome your valued opinion, since you are in business for last 10 years as to how to take this forward and what is best practices to deal with VA as well as lay the foundation for a successful business. Thanks.

Setting up salary system will be a big expense, while profit sharing will be on Net profit, so if no profit they get nothing, correct?

Not everyone know hoe to open account from Pakistan as well as some dont have the required investment. In this case, these are some people i know and they have worked as VA for a company and want to switchover.
