The deal that will see Amazon supplied wholesale fresh produce by Morrisons has fascinated the media.
Could Amazon Pantry's entry to fresh online groceries in the UK shake up the already volatile supermarket landscape?
Here are five questions raised by the deal.
This week, Amazon increased the free shipping minimum order amount for non-Prime customers in the US from $35 to $49.
It's the first increase since 2013, when the online retail giant upped the threshold from $25.
Just after Amazon Pantry’s launch at the end of 2015, research was conducted to see how Pantry stacked up on price against the major UK supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Waitrose and Ocado) on its selection of approximately 4,000 grocery products.
We discovered that those competing grocers were priced between 16% and 29% higher on identical products.
And while Amazon does not typically disclose exact numbers for services like Pantry, Amazon UK boss Christopher North confirmed that it would be adding thousands more products to Pantry this year given its initial success.
We live in a time when it’s easier than ever to set up a fully working shop, albeit a virtual ecommerce one.
One of the things that makes it so easy is the fact that, unlike in the past, you don’t actually need to own or store any stock in order to start selling to customers.
How is that possible? One of the most popular ways is through dropshipping.
When it comes to managing their online reputations, businesses face numerous challenges.
Thanks to the popularity of online reviews and social platforms that can give average consumers a large voice, negative online buzz can cause real damage to a company and its brand.
And in the case of small businesses, negative online buzz can literally kill.
2015 has seen retailers continue to evolve their Black Friday strategies, with many spreading sales across the period.
UK retailers, in particular, have learnt from last year's bumper day (a breakthrough for the holiday in the UK) and either dropped out from the race or tried to spread demand.
Let's have a look at the strategies being adopted by a number of major retailers.
Amazon has just opened its first physical bookshop, aptly named Amazon Books.
Based at the Seattle University Village the shop will stock the most popular books from Amazon.com and prices will match those on the website.
A couple of weeks ago, Amazon sued over 1,000 people for posting fake reviews on its site. The defendants in question had offered their services on fiverr.com.
But is Amazon addressing the symptoms, not the cause?
We've been looking at some analysis of search performance in the lead up to Black Friday.
Electrical retailer Currys has had its strategy licked for some time, whereas Amazon has the odd improvement it could make to its usually omnipresent site.
Both sites show a consistent (and year-round) landing page is important for brands capitalising on annual events.
If you're new to the ecommerce industry, I'll let you in on a “little” secret. There's an 800 pound gorilla in the room that is nearly impossible to take down.
Its name is Amazon, and it's the largest online retailer in the western hemisphere.
It's not surprising that what people are saying about your business online can dramatically affect its prospects.
But despite the importance of customer reviews, many businesses still struggle to get their customers to say nice things about them and their products or services.
Many retailers resort to sales and discounts to boost sales.
However, smarter retailers have demonstrated there's more to it than that.
