Amazon, which is currently the world’s number one on-line seller, is an American international electronic commerce company founded by Jeff Bezos. He began it as an ordinary on-line bookshop, but very quickly widened its offer and started to sell DVDs, VHSs, CDs, video and MP3 downloads/streaming, software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys and even jewelry. Currently the company has 15 different categories to choose from, including:
- Car and Motorbike,
- Appstore for Android,
- Pets & DIY,
- Sports and Outdoors.
A BRIEF HISTORY
The beginnings of Amazon can be tracked to 1995 when the Amazon.com appeared on the Internet for the first time. Amazon is not only available in the US, but has separate selling websites for such countries as United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Brazil, Japan, China and many others, simultaneously offering international shipping for some other countries which do not have their own Amazon retail website. The company has still been thinking about expanding and in 2011 it had expressed a plan of starting new retail websites in Poland, Netherlands and Sweden.
Recently, Amazon has been widely known for the production of consumer electronics, namely the Amazon Kindle e-book reader and the Kindle Fire tablet computer, both of which have been hailed a success. The success of Amazon met with a huge criticism from other book retailers, e.g. Walmart accused Amazon of stealing their selling tactics and Barnes & Nobles sued Amazon as it claimed to be “the world’s largest bookstore” and Barnes & Nobles saw that statement as a blatant false and stated,
“[It] isn’t a bookstore at all. It’s a book broker.”
Both cases were settled out in favour of Amazon. What is more, in 2011 Amazon has become a partner of DC Comics, simultaneously claiming the exclusive digital rights to many well-known comics, e.g. Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Sandman and Watchmen. Therefore, many famous bookstores, e.g. Barnes & Nobles, had to cease selling those titles.
There are probably only a few things and brands which one would not be able to find at Amazon website as it offers products of such brands as: Adidas, Bench, Billabong, Converse, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Diesel, Emporio Armani, Guess, Vila, Vero Moda, Esprit, Disney, Samsung, Nikon, Fujifilm, Lenovo, Toshiba, Tefal, brabantia, Brita, Villeroy & Boch and hundreds of other well-known brands.
