In April, Amazon unveiled its eCommerce platform for ecommerce, dubbed the Marketplace.
It’s a platform where shoppers can search, buy, and sell online.
It allows sellers to display their goods online, but customers can’t shop.
And for those who want to use the Marketplace for online shopping, it’s going to be very difficult to use it.
“What it is, is an ecommerce marketplace that allows people to buy and sell goods, but it’s not really a store,” said Chris Smith, CEO of the ecommerce technology company ecommerce service firm ecommerce.com, in an interview with CBC News.
So why are consumers being turned off by this platform?
“The reason that people are being turned away is because it’s too complicated,” Smith said.
Ecommerce Marketplace in a nutshell The Marketplace is where shoppers enter their shopping cart and a number of items are displayed on the screen.
Users can shop and then leave the Marketplace, but the sellers who accept the order have to show up in order to receive their products.
The items on the Marketplace include everything from shoes to electronics to clothing, as well as items like electronics, home furnishings, and electronics accessories.
Smith says there are two types of items on Marketplace.
First is the list items, which are a list of the products on the seller’s wish list.
Second is the shopping cart items, an array of items sold online.
Items are sorted by category, and the items listed next to each category are added to the shopping basket.
In essence, if a seller wants to buy a TV for $600, and they want to sell it for $800, they can’t.
They have to wait for a listing in the Marketplace to show.
But Smith says Marketplace sellers are not required to list all the items on their wish list, and therefore the Marketplace is not designed to be a place where customers can make purchases.
And in a way, Smith says, this is why Marketplace sellers have such trouble selling on the Amazon Marketplace.
“There’s a lot of ways that you can make money,” he said.
“If you want to make money on Amazon, you have to create an e-commerce platform where you’re able to sell your products.”
The biggest challenge for sellers Smith says is that Amazon doesn’t have a good store of inventory.
Smith says that there’s currently less than 2,500 items on Seller Central, and most sellers have a limited amount of inventory on their site.
That makes it very difficult for sellers to sell on Amazon.
While Smith said the Marketplace doesn’t force sellers to list their items in a shopping cart, he says there will be certain items that are sold for a higher price in the future.
“[The Marketplace] does provide some features that sellers are going to have to implement, and that’s the reason that they are not going to necessarily be able to get a listing on Amazon,” Smith explained.
“It’s going for the lower price.”
In a world of Amazon, who wants to shop?
So how does this affect Canadian shoppers?
Smith says there’s still a lot to be learned from selling on Amazon Marketplace, and for now, it will likely be difficult for Canadian sellers to compete on the site.
Smith said there are still a few sellers who are going ahead and listing on the marketplace because of the low inventory.
Still, Smith hopes that the Marketplace will eventually be used to sell items on Amazon Prime, where customers will be able buy a number or categories of items for $99 per year.
Smith hopes to see that trend continued, and also hopes that Canadian shoppers will find a better experience on the website.
Amazon Marketplace is available to customers in Canada, the United States, the European Union, the Middle East, and Asia.
