Black Friday, Boxing Day deals and now Amazon Prime Day. The next addition to the consumer dominated holiday market is widely anticipated, and has been since its inception in 2015. With recent news coming in from the US, stating that by the year's end Amazon will dominate 50% of the eCommerce market, what can we expect from this year's Prime day? With Amazon beginning to monopolize the market, what far reaching effects can we expect in how the eCommerce sector operates?
But what is Amazon Prime Day?
If you haven't heard, where have you been? Amazon Prime Day is exclusive to Amazon Prime customers and offers a tantalising array of special offers. Set to commence at midday on Monday 16th of July, this is an opportunity not to be missed out on. With plenty of vendors migrating over to Amazon or plying their wares on multiple platforms, you will be spoiled for choice and every product you could wish for will be available. With last year's estimate stating that turnover from the day was in excess of $1 billion, it really does show you that as a seller it's a massive opportunity to take advantage of.
