Businesses Selling on Amazon 2011 was also a record-breaking holiday season for businesses that sell on Amazon. Third-party sellers experienced record holiday growth: the number of sellers who exceeded $5,000 in sales during the holiday season increased 44 percent year-over-year. For the year, businesses on Amazon sold hundreds of millions of units worth billions of dollars worldwide. Scharf Industries, an office supplies and electronics provider, increased its sales on Amazon by over 500 percent this holiday season compared with last holiday season. "We greatly value the cooperation that we have developed with Amazon," said Andrew D. Scharf, CMO of Scharf Industries. "They have provided us with the tools necessary to grow our business in a rapid and efficient manner." Ken Reiss, the owner of Reiss Innovations, LLC, started with one Amazon Webstore, selling five to 10 mouse pads for the year. Six years later he has a successful eCommerce business, selling through multiple Amazon Webstores. Just this year alone, Reiss saw a 21 percent increase in sales compared with the holiday season last year. He has also increased the number of product listings by 50 percent over 2010 and recently extended his business to Canada. According to Reiss, one of the most beneficial aspects of his relationship with Amazon is that "It allows me to scale in efficiency. I can devote my time to building vendor relations and growing my inventory, rather than worrying about logistical aspects, such as shipping products." Reiss currently stores 90 percent of his inventory in Amazon's warehouses, up from 75 percent last year.
I saw at least 10 Kindle Fires given as gifts to people by friends and family from all sorts of economic status'
Amazon's carved themselves out a nice little niche with this economically priced, but quality tablet
We were constantly sold out of the Kindle Fire. The closer it got to Christmas you couldn't find it at any Officemax. It was mind boggling to me when this one guy got mad and walked out of the store when I said we wouldn't receive any more shipments until after Christmas.
"I have the power!!"
Looks like they found the sweet spot price for a tablet. Doesn't hurt to have a quality product either :-)
I ordered my Fire the first day I could. I am overjoyed with what it can do for $199.00. The content available is increasing daily. The first fix came ASAP and was seamless. My wife said why do we need that? Now I can’t keep her off of it playing Angry Birds, reading books, Pac Man etc., etc. It is not an I Pad but it is not $800.00 either. I would not buy an I Pad. I am waiting for the Asus Transformer Tegra 3 with optional keyboard. I am typing on an Asus All in One 24 " I-5 8 Meg, One Terabyte HD Touch Screen, the absolute BEST Desk Top I have ever owned and I go back to the Radio Shack Model 1 4K cassette. Been deeply involved in PC ever since. Translation Geek at 65 years young. Asus Rocks and will blow away the I Pad when it hits the market. Happy New Year to All Geeks! (;>
