Amazon sales surge but Bezos says coronavirus costs could hit $4 billion

Juozas Kaziukenas, founder of e-commerce research site Marketplace Pulse, called Amazon's online sales growth "pretty staggering" and expects that growth to be even more impressive in the second quarter.

Amazon’s ‘non-essential’ sellers return but still face an uphill struggle

“It’s clear Amazon probably misunderstood the magnitude of the changes,” says Juozas Kaziukenas, from Marketplace Pulse, a research company that gathers data on third-party seller activity. “If a seller is having products being manufactured in China, but now Amazon says it can only take 50 units, where does he put the rest of those products?”

“Ebay, Target, Google Shopping, and other marketplaces saw no acceleration at all,” wrote Mr Kaziukenas, referencing Marketplace Pulse data on seller growth over the past few months. “That is not to say that sellers already using those marketplaces are not seeing growth in sales — they are — however, sellers not on them yet do not appear to be expanding their channels. Or, often, do not have the fulfilment capability to sell elsewhere effectively.”

Amazon brands are adopting DTC strategies

These moves are indicative of an industry-wide strategy shift. For the first few weeks, said Juozas Kaziukėnas, CEO of research firm Marketplace Pulse, most brands tried “just wait it out and see what happens.” Now that the impacts seem to be far-reaching, this strategy no longer seems viable. As a result, “there’s a clear uptick in the use of 3PLs,” he said.

That is, some brands are finding their inventory either tied up in Amazon warehouses with extremely long shipping dates or are unable to put products into the Fulfilled By Amazon warehouses to then be shipped out. “People on Amazon have founds ways to do their own fulfillment faster than Fulfilled by Amazon,” said Kaziukėnas.
