Shopping via Amazon

Online product sales are the biggest revenue segment of the e-tailer, followed by retail third-party seller services. Amazon not only processes vendor sales but also enables third-party sellers to sell their goods through the platform. In the fourth quarter of 2019, more than half of all paid unit sales were generated by 3P sellers. During a February 2019 survey of U.S. Amazon shoppers, it was found that the most popular Amazon shopping categories were electronics, followed by apparel and footwear. Key factors that drive consumers to shop via Amazon are competitive pricing and low shipping costs, as well as positive product reviews. Increasing product sales also led to increased logistics expenditure for the retailer. In 2018, Amazon's fulfillment expenses amounted to 34.02 billion U.S. dollars, up from 25.2 billion U.S. dollars in the year before. In March 2018, Amazon’s average click-to-door speed in the United States was 3.07 days.
