Unlike normal behavior, Amazon is behaving in a different way now with the sellers. Earlier, Amazon and other companies always tried to regularize the price of the items to compete with the seller’s prices at other websites, like eBay and Walmart. But now things are changing for some unknown reasons.
Recently, it has been a trend in the case of Amazon that they are raising prices of the items with the sellers. The reason for the same cannot be identified and it is also creating confusions in the market regarding the competitors’ trend on them.
Earlier, the company has always competed with Walmart and eBay in terms of pricing of the sellers with the 3rd party resellers working with the brands. Recently they have been reported to be forcing the sellers to hike their price of the items.
This has been a disturbing feature for the sellers too, who have to say that previously, they were forced to reduce the prices of the items so that they can be kept at par with the pricing of the competitors, but that is not the case recently. They are being forced now to hike their prices and the reason to make that is still unknown.
Is the company doing the same for the increased tariff in the market or there is some other reason for the same. Even the analysts are totally numb on the aspect and they have remarked that they need to undergo the things before making any further statement, but the giant 3rd party seller company is surely having some plan behind everything.
Whatever the cause of the thing is unknown, but there must be some effect of the same in the market for sure – this will be soon visible in the next quarter.
