Last Updated June 9, 2021


Why Do Brands Sell on Amazon?

We talk with a lot of eCommerce brands that are curious about how to start selling on Amazon, and others who have established an Amazon store but need help boosting sales. 

While we tend to encourage our clients to put more resources behind their direct-to-consumer (D2C) stores on platforms such as Shopify, no doubt selling on Amazon can bring in new purchasers and reach different audiences. 

Amazon is popular among eCommerce brands because:

  • Amazon is the leading online retailer in the United States
  • It’s accessible to the millions of people who browse the marketplace every day. 
  • It can be especially great for businesses selling an exclusive or unique product. 
  • There’s a wide range of shipping options available. 
  • Marketing Charts reports that 63% of consumers in key markets start their shopping searches on Amazon. 

So if you’re aiming to add Amazon selling as a sustainable, profitable part of your growth system, read on!
