It's rather simple and straightforward
Most of these companies operate through buyouts. They buy the Amazon account and the intellectual property from a seller that has been proven to be successful on Amazon’s marketplaces.
Then the acquisition company takes on the acquired Amazon brand and make it it's own by appending some changes. It puts each product through a compliance check, so it won’t get in trouble later.
Most of the time, the products will be sold for lower prices than before. That’s possible because these acquisition companies have the resources to buy in bulk and make better contracts with manufacturers.
You might get interest from the Amazon seller acquisition companies when you generate between 1 and 5 million euros in annual revenue.
When you get interest, and you get acquired, most deals are for 3 to 4.5 times the annual profits.
