As well as our own website we also sell adult onesies on Amazon and occasionally on ebay too. Sometimes we get asked why we sell on Amazon since they charge a handsome fee for the privilege which comes straight off our profit margin. Well the simple answer is that most online retailers can’t afford to not be on Amazon – they have become so powerful. Just look at the latest Prime day numbers with Prime Day sales surpassing Black Friday and Cyber Monday, all on a day with deals reserved just for their Prime members. According to the Amazon press release, this Prime Day 2017 grew by more than 60 percent compared to the same 30 hours last year, and sales growth by the small business and entrepreneur sector, people like us, was even higher. More new members joined Prime on July 11 than on any single day in Amazon history. What does that mean in terms of volumes, well more than 200,000 women’s dresses were purchased by customers on Prime Day 2017. Activity is driven by sellers like us discounting to Prime members. Nearly 50 cents on every dollar was spent on a discounted item, amounting to more than 4.7 million items sold at an average of 24% off. Success is also down to Amazon’s logistic strength with the fastest deliveries in Sunnyvale and Berkeley, California and Kirkland, Washington to Prime members who ordered snacks, writeable DVD packs and a Samsung Internal SSD. The orders were each delivered in 12 minutes. That’s why we decided to use Amazon to fulfil all our orders, to give you the fastest and most reliable deliveries. And Amazon continues to grow its retail dominance, experimenting with stores, with drone delivery, and selling its own private label items. A recent report highlighted an example; in the baby wipe category, the Amazon Elements brand, which is only two-and-a-half years old, holds an estimated 15 percent-plus of online market share — behind only Huggies and Pampers. No wonder that Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, was briefly the world’s richest man last week. Remember that although we are happy to sell our adult onesies on Amazon you will always get the broadest range and the best prices on our own website.
