How Google is revamping its e-commerce business with JD.com’s help

Currently, Google Shopping hosts 2,000 stores, including big chains like Costco and Target, according to e-commerce research firm Marketplace Pulse. Chinese sellers can open a store using Google Shopping Actions like other retail chains, or they can sell in partnership with JD.com.

“It's probably a much better approach to have a Chinese company to deal with Chinese sellers,” said Juozas Kaziukėnas, founder of Marketplace Pulse.“Obviously JD has much more experience in this. They have existing local relationships. They have an existing local experience.”

FedEx won’t deliver Amazon packages in the US anymore

But Juozas Kaziukėnas, founder and CEO of the business intelligence firm Marketplace Pulse, told Vox, “To me, this whole thing is Amazon flexing their ability to do this. This renders Prime shipping much more valuable, because even if some orders are delayed, the perception of one-day shipping is very valuable, because no one else can do it. That’s what’s going to keep people subscribing to Prime.” He also called one-day shipping “borderline impossible” for “everyone else” for at least the next five years.

Amazon’s Launchpad Program Is Offering Marketing Support To Aussie Start-Ups

According to Juozas Kaziukėnas, founder of Marketplace Pulse, when Amazon first started Launchpad in the US four years ago, its primary goal was to grow the number of brands available exclusively on Amazon as a way to distinguish it from other online retailers.

“However, despite thousands of products available on the launchpad in the US at any given time, most are as random as the overall catalog. There are of course some exceptional examples, like the Wyze Cam or Exploding Kittens card game, but most didn’t do as well,” he told Which-50.

Amazon's Creating a Secret Pipeline of Private-Label Brands

Despite all of the media coverage of its private-label endeavors, it hasn't had a lot of success beyond its AmazonBasics and Amazon Essentials brands; a lot of its private labels haven't made a lot of sales. Of the 100 private-label brands Amazon launched in 2018, none are category leaders, according to Marketplace Pulse.

Amazon’s best Prime Day deal was probably an accident

According to a report by the research firm Marketplace Pulse, this year’s Prime Day discounted 1.3 million products with average discounts of 25 to 30 percent. Compared with previous years, there was much more emphasis on exclusive deals on Amazon and products — particularly consumer electronics — sold by Amazon rather than third-party sellers.

Marketplace Pulse’s founder Juozas Kaziukėnas said the story of the camera equipment so captivated the public because people hope that they, too, will be able to find such an inconceivable discount. There’s an additional allure, too — that of the general public taking on a tech behemoth and winning.

“When the mistake is on Amazon, there’s definitely a sense of ‘[the buyer] deserves this; they’re such a big company,’” Kaziukėnas said.

eBay accelerates payments push

Juozas Kaziukėnas, founder of the retail data analytics company Marketplace Pulse, said Managed Payments will benet sellers, but there will likely be some pushback at rst. While some sellers might complain about switching from PayPal’s system, they’ll end up appreciating the increased conversion rates, he noted. “Etsy went through a similar transition,” he said. “There’s going to be an uproar like there was on Etsy, but I’m sure most Etsy merchants don’t even remember it anymore.”

Comment la place de marché est devenue l'un des moteurs d'Amazon

« Historiquement, Amazon a développé une place de marché pour accroître les références vendues sur son site, explique le fondateur de la base de données Marketplace Pulse, Juozas Kaziukenas. Il devenait physiquement impossible de parler à tous les vendeurs, donc Amazon a décidé d'ouvrir directement son site ». Mais c'est à partir de 2006 que la place de marché a décollé. Cette année-là, Amazon a proposé aux vendeurs de stocker leurs produits dans ses entrepôts et d'en assurer la logistique. « L'année précédente, Amazon avait lancé le service Prime de livraison en deux jours et pour proposer une vaste sélection de produits, il fallait pouvoir assurer les délais, poursuit Juozas Kaziukenas. Cela était quasiment impossible à faire pour les petits vendeurs ».

Lawmakers slam Amazon for how it treats competing merchants

But it has not, so far, taken the retail sector by storm. In fact, Amazon’s house brands, like AmazonBasics, account for just a tiny portion of its sales, according to a study by Marketplace Pulse. (The fear, of course, is that Amazon is simply playing a long game to eventual dominance.)

On Prime Day, Amazon is prioritizing exclusive products and first-party vendors

“Over the past year, Amazon’s strategy has shifted from making and owning brands themselves to building exclusive relationships with brands,” said Juozas Kaziukenas, the founder and CEO of Marketplace Pulse in a recent interview. “As Amazon continues to expand this effort, they’re not looking to be seen as a company who continuously launches product and competes with brands on its own platform. It creates an environment where brands who want to work with Amazon get advantages on the platform.”
