Pros and Cons of Selling on Amazon

If you’re selling things online, you probably understand how online retail sites work. We’re talking about eBay, Amazon, or Sears (yes, there is a lot of them). But let’s focus more on Amazon, which is currently the top trusted e-commerce site these days. Are you on Amazon? What are you selling there? Did you notice the advantages? What about the downside?

Pros:

1. Wider reach of customers. Amazon has currently more than 164 million active customer accounts. This ensures that every time you sell something on Amazon, your product will likely be seen by these millions of active customers. And when they found your product valuable and useful, they will likely tell their friends, too. That’s a chain reaction.

2. Credibility. Because of Amazon’s high customer satisfaction requirements, people flock to it. So if you want to sell on Amazon, you should have a very high customer satisfaction rating to keep up.

Cons:

1. Amazon may own your customers. You may be successful selling your products, but you’re less likely to build relationship with your customers. Amazon keeps the data from the transactions that your customers made. Hence, they’re the ones who can build customer relationship.

2. Amazon may start competing with you. If your product sell well, Amazon will likely start buying your items and sell them as their own. Now, you’re competing with the giant.

Final Grade

This infographic discusses the benefits and challenges of selling on Amazon. The details are helpful, but it could use a boost in visual communication and design quality. The design uses a mix of icons, illustrations, and photos, all in different styles. This makes it difficult to form a cohesive aesthetic, which is distracting for the viewer. In addition, most of the visuals aren't working hard enough to tell the story without the supporting text — while the Amazon logo is recognizable and helpful in establishing the subject matter, much of the imagery (particularly in the Cons section) is very open-ended and doesn't help the viewer to understand the information better — the viewer can only rely on the text to glean info. The text also gets heavy in parts — bullets are preferable to long sentences and paragraphs in an infographic. In all we'd give this an F.
