Amazon Trials its Shipping Service in Three US Locations
It appears as though the time to be an Amazon third party seller is now.
Just a month ago, Amazon reversed its price parity provision on third party sellers which restricted them from offering lower prices elsewhere. And now Amazon is looking to extend their pilot shipping services to those companies responsible for half of their U.S. sales.
TJI Research picked up word about select sellers in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago receiving special invitations to participate in the Amazon Shipping service this week. This seller-to-customer shipping service will allow these individuals to print shipping labels through their Amazon dashboard to affix to their products that are then picked up and delivered to customers via ground shipping. Someone from Amazon will reportedly come by their warehouses each weekday and deliver packages to customers 7 days a week.
