In response to criticism that Amazon doesn’t pay its workers a livable wage, Jeff Bezos announced beginning November 1, 2018, all U.S. and U.K. Amazon employees will earn a $15 an hour minimum wage. Amazon will also lobby to make $15 an hour the federal minimum wage. At the same time, Amazon also eliminated stock awards and bonuses for hourly employees.

Amazon occasionally sends out invitations for customer surveys which can earn you online gift cards. The surveys are done by third-parties, but be careful how much information you give out. Amazon says it never asks you to provide account information, passwords or social security numbers. If you get a survey that does, stop taking it and contact Amazon.

According to sources, Amazon did not expect to make a profit for four to five years. This comparatively slow growth caused stockholders to complain that the company was not reaching profitability fast enough to justify their investment or even survive in the long-term. The dot-com bubble burst at the start of the 21st century and destroyed many e-companies in the process, but Amazon survived and moved forward beyond the tech crash to become a huge player in online sales. The company finally turned its first profit in the fourth quarter of 2001: $5 million (i.e., 1¢ per share), on revenues of more than $1 billion. This profit margin, though extremely modest, proved to skeptics that Bezos' unconventional business model could succeed.
Some other large e-commerce sellers use Amazon to sell their products in addition to selling them through their own websites. The sales are processed through Amazon.com and end up at individual sellers for processing and order fulfillment and Amazon leases space for these retailers. Small sellers of used and new goods go to Amazon Marketplace to offer goods at a fixed price. Amazon also employs the use of drop shippers or meta sellers. These are members or entities that advertise goods on Amazon who order these goods direct from other competing websites but usually from other Amazon members. These meta sellers may have millions of products listed, have large transaction numbers and are grouped alongside other less prolific members giving them credibility as just someone who has been in business for a long time. Markup is anywhere from 50% to 100% and sometimes more, these sellers maintain that items are in stock when the opposite is true. As Amazon increases their dominance in the marketplace these drop shippers have become more and more commonplace in recent years.

A study by the e-tailing group discovered that consumers highly value the ability to research a product before purchasing it, in order to find the best price guarantee. The current online consumer behavior is based on the efficiency of price comparison. This means that customers are highly likely to Google prices of the products that they’re interested in, or for instance use the Amazon price check before they decide what they should buy. This is where comparison shopping engines and apps step in, in order to facilitate this growing need of consumers.
For ecommerce merchants, comparison shopping engines are an opportunity to put your products in front of very interested buyers. These are not people glancing at a virtual storefront like a window shopper at the mall. Rather, CSE users typically have already made the decision to buy and are simply looking for the best deal. With their high-intent to purchase, comparison shoppers are often an ideal audience for promoting your products.
We love the Arlo range of home security cameras, but there are two big problems we have with them. First, they’re really expensive. Second you have to deal with the hassle of recharging the batteries every two to three months. If you want something comparable that’s way less expensive and that has battery life that Arlo cameras couldn’t even dream of, today is your lucky day. Amazon is offering discounts on both the Blink Indoor Home Security Camera System and the upgraded weatherproof Blink XT Home Security Camera System. They’re all available at their lowest prices yet, but these deals probably won’t last long.
