It looks like they’re shooting for a few different ideas but there’s no master plan for what they want to become when it comes to commerce.”

Wish, the Online Dollar Store, Is Losing Momentum Before IPO

“They’re underperforming the e-commerce market both in the U.S. and Europe,” says Juozas Kaziukenas, founder of the research firm Marketplace Pulse. “That, to me, is a concern.”

“They are quite literally buying sales,” Kaziukenas says. “I don’t know where that goes in the future, as Facebook and other marketing channels become more expensive. That’s a channel that will continue to eat into any sort of profitability.”

How Wish, the $30bn anti-Amazon, found success by breaking the rules of online shopping

“If Amazon optimised shopping for convenience, Wish is by far optimised for price, says Juozas Kaziukėnas, the chief executive of Marketplace Pulse, which monitors ecommerce.

“By focusing on price, you give up the rest, which in the case of Wish is shipping speed.”

A more imminent danger is that the cheap shipping that Wish has been built on is coming to an end.

“Wish is using a business model with an expiration date,” says Kaziukėnas.

“It’s not clear when the expiration date is going to come. But it’s coming.”

Bezos’s goal is to turn Amazon into the rails on which all e-commerce runs. “Physical infrastructure of e-commerce is going to be the biggest battlefront for the future,” said Kaziukenas.

Amazon’s hiring spree of hundreds of thousands of workers gets its real test starting Black Friday

It’s unclear whether consumers will actually select no-rush shipping at checkout, since even with a digital reward, “it’s a pretty hard sell,” said Juozas Kaziukenas, who runs e-commerce research firm Marketplace Pulse.

“Amazon can’t just push people into weeklong deliveries, because there’s already plenty of people who complain about Prime and not getting things in two days,” Kaziukenas said. “If they did it aggressively, that would only increase.”
