eBay accuses arch rival Amazon of using dirty tactics to poach sellers

Juozas Kaziukenas, an e-commerce analyst and founder of Marketplace Pulse, said the 1000 messages in question was a “tiny” amount given the size of these global marketplaces. “At best that would have gotten Amazon 10, 20 … 50 new sellers?” he told The New Daily. “Amazon worldwide gets two new sellers to join every minute. Amazon Australia has roughly 500 sellers join every week. By our count, there are more than two million eBay sellers from both Australia and worldwide that have made their products available to Australian customers on By comparison, Amazon Australia is just about to pass 23,000 sellers.”

Should the Industry Fear Amazon’s (Possible) Jewelry Line?

Jewelry is, after all, an emotional product, and a recent post on Marketplace Pulse argued that Amazon never got the hang of emotional selling.

“There is a difference between shopping for toilet paper and beauty products,” writes Juozas Kaziukėnas. “One is transactional commerce, the other requires emotion. Many then would argue that Amazon is missing this. They do transactional commerce well but have no capacity for emotional brands.”

"Amazon ultimately wants to build a retail cloud — think AWS but for retail," Kaziukenas said. "Amazon in the future will be an infrastructure provider for all retail supply chain steps."

Extra inventory. More sales. Lower prices. How counterfeits benefit Amazon

Combined with transaction fees, fulfillment services and advertising, Amazon can take up to half a seller’s revenue. By comparison, Amazon earns less than 5% profit margins on goods it sells directly, said Juozas Kaziukenas, founder and chief executive of Marketplace Pulse, an e-commerce analytics firm. Amazon declined to verify its profit margin.

“People don’t see the chaos behind the listings,” said Kaziukenas, whose firm tracks tens of millions of sellers and brands online. Amazon’s business model, he said, forced brands to compete on a global scale rather than only with rivals next to them on store shelves. “You have millions of businesses all over the world going after you all the time,” Kaziukenas said.

The Prime Effect: How Amazon’s 2-Day Shipping Is Disrupting Retail

Amazon’s shipping infrastructure isn’t used just by Amazon. As shoppers who read the fine print know, it’s also available to its retail partners through its Amazon Marketplace.

Almost 70% use it to stock and ship at least half of their products, he adds.
