Azt hitték, életük üzletét csinálják az Amazonon, aztán jött a hidegzuhany

Január 1. nulla órától január 6-ig világszerte 16 268 új kereskedő regisztrált a piactérre, azaz percenként kettő - írta a MarkertplacePulse nevű kutatócég az év eleji összesítésében. Igaz, azt is hozzátették, hogy az újonnan regisztrálók nagy része valószínűleg soha nem fog egy eladnivaló terméket sem feltölteni az oldalra.

Target’s investment in store pickup for online orders is paying off

Juozas Kaziukėnas, CEO of e-commerce research firm Marketplace Pulse, said Target’s store pickup options for online orders make sense for customers outside of U.S. major urban centers, where customers are accustomed to driving to stores to pick up items. Target’s online pickup services helped rushed holiday shoppers wanting to save time on their last-minute holiday purchases, he added.

“Target was one of the bigger winners last year — it’s a massive turnaround compared to where they were a couple of years ago,” said Kaziukėnas. “Most of these people are driving to the store anyway; picking up [at the store] is super convenient because it meshes the advantages of picking up something in the store and buying online.”

How the State of the Amazon Marketplace Represents China’s Unfair Practices

The dominance of Chinese merchants on the platform is another issue that shouldn’t be overlooked. Over a third of Amazon’s top sellers come from China and many of them take advantage of being based close to the factories.

By sourcing their inventories directly from manufacturers, they also get to enjoy larger margins and minimal overhead.

Is It Really Five Stars? How to Spot Fake Amazon Reviews

“In early 2012, the Amazon catalog grew too big, and the only way to get to the top of search results was to prove to the algorithm that your product was the best,” said Juozas Kaziukėnas, chief executive of Marketplace Pulse, a business-intelligence firm focused on e-commerce. “Most sellers realized acquiring reviews was a golden ticket.”

Dirty dealing in the $175 billion Amazon Marketplace

This year, Marketplace sales were almost double those of Amazon retail itself, according to Marketplace Pulse, making the seller platform alone the largest e-commerce business in the world.

Amazon’s ability to hide the chaos of its Marketplace from consumers is part of what made the company successful early on, says Marketplace Pulse’s Juozas Kaziukėnas. While eBay is obviously a bazaar, Amazon looks like a traditional retailer.

Last year only about 20,000 sellers — 0.3 percent — had more than a million dollars in sales a year, which is the point at which Kaziukenas says it becomes a viable full-time business.
