Most are familiar with the name Amazon, but what exactly is this amazon gallery, store or shop?
Amazon is very similar to ebay, both are very successful at running an internet based business, and just like ebay there is no physical amazon store or shop as such that you can visit.
Amazon differ in one very important way, amazon have a number of warehouses, a very very large number of warehouses they call fulfillment centers.
The fulfillment centers are full of products listed for sale on : http://amazon.com ready to ship out when an on-line sale is made, and that is the major difference between these two on-line giants.
When you buy some thing from amazon, amazon already have the product in one of their numerous amazon fulfillment center warehouses, unlike ebay where when you buy some thing, you are for the most part left at the mercy of an all to often – pedantic third party seller.
Link this to the sometimes equally difficult buyer exploiting ebay’s terms weapon, and you can end up with a difficult trade.
Amazon will not publish comprehensive information about their fulfillment centers, but at the end of 2015 we know amazon had : – 96 (ninety-six) warehouses spread across 14 (fourteen) states in the USA alone, – 4 (four) warehouses in India, 1 (one) in Italy, – 9 (nine) in Germany, – 3 (three) in France, – 12 (twelve) in China, – 6 (six) in Japan, – 2 (two) in Canada and 8 (eight) in the United Kingdom.
Amazon having recently announced they intend to expand their distribution network in all of these countries, they continue to expand at a pace.
We have a small amazon gallery window below.
