Over 40 Percent of Amazon's Sellers Are Based in China

As Marketplace Pulse reports, the latest business information data released by Amazon's different regional websites reveals that an average of 40 percent or more of sellers are based in China. That's based on data collected from the top 10,000 sellers and is a huge increase from the 26 percent seen just two years ago.

Amazon just launched a lending service in China while shuttering its local marketplace

According to a recent report by Marketplace Pulse, an e-commerce research and consulting firm, over 40% of the best-selling merchants on Amazon are now in China, a figure that's more than doubled since 2016.

The primary reason for their success is in pricing, as Chinese sellers are able to source products at a lower price than sellers in other parts of the world, said Juozas Kaziukenas, CEO of Marketplace Pulse. Although the general Chinese consumers may not find Amazon so appealing, China-based merchants are increasingly using it as an important sales channel to directly reach U.S. consumers, he said.

"Chinese sellers have something to offer to shoppers on Amazon, but Amazon itself failed to offer anything to Chinese shoppers that wasn't already perfected by local players like Alibaba," Kaziukenas said.

Google’s New Plan to Challenge Amazon for Shoppers

“Who has hundreds of billions of dollars to burn over the next decade to even get close to Amazon?” said Juozas Kaziukėnas, founder of the e-commerce research firm Marketplace Pulse. “Google has enough money, but can they actually deploy it smartly?”

More than 1,300 merchants are selling through Google Express, according to Marketplace Pulse, compared to just 50 one year ago. But Google has been abandoned by some major retailers that had agreed to sell on its shopping platform. Walmart, its largest retailer, left Google Express earlier this year.

When Your Amazon Purchase Explodes

More than half of the items sold on Amazon are listed by third-party sellers—not by Amazon itself—which makes ensuring that products are safe and authentic difficult, according to Juozas Kaziukenas, the founder of Marketplace Pulse, a firm that researches Amazon.

Generally, Amazon has been slow to take down products that are alleged to be dangerous, copyright-infringing, or counterfeit, even after being alerted of a problem. “It’s quite often that enforcement of policies and the creation of policies are very different things on Amazon,” Kaziukenas told me.

Orolay may be the poster child for Chinese companies living off on Amazon. But more Orolays are coming. According to research in 2017 from Marketplace Pulse, 34 percent of top sellers on Amazon are based in China. This goes of course without consumers’ noticing, as all they care is a good product with low price. In 2017 alone, more than 250,000 sellers from China joined Amazon.

Amazon says revised FDI norms had minimal impact with ‘few days’ of downtime; Q1 profit doubles to $3.6 billion

Amazon had 180 million products listed on its marketplace portal as on January 17, a day after it sought an extension of the February 1 deadline by four months. However, the number of listed products had gone down from January 17 onwards to 154 million on February 1, only to bring back all of its catalogue having 182 million products by February 22, according to the data by US-based e-commerce intelligence firm Marketplace Pulse.

“Practically all of the products which were removed before February 1 are now back on Amazon. There is always a fluctuation in the catalogue because of out of stock days for example, but everything Amazon was previously selling, if still in stock, is back,” Juozas Kaziukėnas, Founder and CEO at Marketplace Pulse told Financial Express Online.

Amazon’s one-day shipping Prime offer is an attempt to suck you in for life

“To me, this whole thing is Amazon flexing their ability to do this,” Juozas Kaziukėnas, the founder and CEO of the business intelligence firm Marketplace Pulse, told Del Valle. “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.”
