I had purchased Jim Cockrum’s PAC Amazon Course back in 2018, but never did go in that direction. At the time I was involved in affiliate marketing, and followed that path instead. I recently decided to take another look at the program, and share what I found.
The first thing I noticed was, the updated website page display was much easier to navigate. So, let me revisit this course, check out this New Learning Portal, and give you my review of Jim Cockrum’s PAC Amazon Course.

Jim Cockrum PAC Amazon Course Review
Jim’s PAC Amazon Course is designed to teach you how to sell products on Amazon Marketplace.
The training is done using video’s, webinar recordings and former created courses by Jim Cockrum. It also allows you to join an active Facebook group of other PAC members . This is a closed group available to PAC Amazon Course members.
The Facebook group allows you to get information from other members, who add personal Facebook lessons dealing with common issues people have faced while learning the process of selling products on Amazon.
The PAC Amazon Course – FBA
The actual business being taught by Jim’s PAC is referred to as Amazon FBA or (Fulfillment By Amazon). This means you send your products to Amazon and they pack them up and ship them directly to your customers.
You can also choose to to ship your own products directly to your customers that purchase your products. When you choose this method it is referred to as Fulfillment by Merchant- MF.
One selling team achieved the number one ranked toy on amazon by using methods that began with this course.
This course also includes all the steps from A to Z on how to purchase products, to determining what price to sell the item. The course even details on labeling, packing the products and shipping them to Amazon.
Jim’s Course Is Broken Up Into 5 Steps
- Open an Amazon Sellers Account – This is done within the first week of receiving the course and is necessary to start selling your products on Amazon’s Platform.
- Source Products – This is where you get your products to sell. They offer various ways to obtain products. Sometimes this get a bit overwhelming for newbies, trying to pick which way they want to source products. There are 4 different lessons on ways to source products .# 1.Online Sourcing Strategies-Retail Arbitrage #2. Buy local sell to the world #3 Proven Performance Inventory #4 Proven Wholesale Sourcing
- List Products – This is how your product gets sold, by Listing it on the Amazon platform or marketplace. You will be packing up your products that you have acquired, and listing them for sale. Two different Videos under Amazon Basics teach the whole process.
- Ship Your Products – As I said , you can choose two different ways to ship your products. You ship the product yourself once it sells called “Fulfillment by Merchant”-MF, or you can have Amazon ship the product right to the buyer called “Fulfillment by Amazon” FBA. Both options are covered under Amazon Basics.
- Get Paid – Once the product is sold and shipped, Amazon deposits your money into your Amazon Sellers Central Account (Minus any Amazon fees).Then regular payments are made to your bank account.
No Website Is Required
This program does not require you to build a website, you can sell products on Amazon, and even run product ads on Facebook. During this course, they are teaching it with just using mostly tricks to improve visibility and ranking for sales. This helps to keep costs low for people just starting out.
But, you will need to expect extra costs for additional tools and memberships. The Pro membership to sell products on Amazon will cost $39.99 monthly. You will also have labeling costs and shipping costs as well. So, be sure to calculate some extra cash on hand for a small inventory investment as well. Most likely $500-$1500 available cash to get started.
If you don’t have the start up costs, you may want to display your products on a website. I can show you my #1 method to get you up and running in less than a day. And, you can start a website for free, purchase a domain, and have you hosting included for less than a dollar a day A website would save some costs but would require some content creation to get you going.
The SSM eLearning Portal
Jim’s Amazon Course is now displayed on the new SSMeLearn page and is much easier to navigate than it was when I purchased the program. With 20 mini courses inside the PAC Amazon Course, you are getting a large volume of information.

Included in the training is a very helpful module called Proven Private Label. I find this area very interesting and a unique way to market products. It gives the basics for people who want to sell with their own label. For people who don’t like arbitrage, this is another option. The Lesson does give some details but more help is also found in videos on the Facebook page.
The Proven Private label training teaches you to create your own product with your own label. It is again a basic overview, with enough information to allow you to pursue your own product development. But, expect to be researching the area in more detail when you want expand to the next level. Nonetheless, you can get a product on the market with the information given.

Program is LEGIT
If people know nothing about selling on Amazon, this is basic enough that it explains what skills and tools you need to get started. For people who already know about selling on amazon will find the beginning of the course very basic. There are times when the program skims over some areas, and leaves some unanswered questions. Experienced people would understand better.
This increases the need for future sales of additional coaching and webinar training’s. Overall, the cost of the package, plus the fact you get access to quite a lot of Jim’s’ training’s and future training’s as well make it a great bang for the buck program.
It is also possible to build a niche website and sell products with your own website to promote them. Using the exact system I use, is a great way to build a website and promote your own or affiliate products on Amazon. It is also a legit way to become an affiliate marketing success story and do it the right way.
