“It’s just generally a go-to brand” A number of the panel considered Amazon to be the online retailer that they will always check before making a purchase online, due to the large variety and availability of stock. It appears a number of the panel were impressed with the sheer range of items available, “if anybody talks about buying anything, someone usually pipes up and says ‘try it on Amazon'”.
The Price Is Always Right!
“I love Amazon. It’s first port of call for me when buying anything.” Most of the panel were impressed with the wide range of stock on Amazon.com that always seem to be available, commenting positively on the high number of Amazon approved independent sellers there are. Although some did feel that Amazon tend to undercut the independent sellers putting them out of business and are dominating the market place. In contrast to that, a small segment complimented Amazon on their marketplace offering them easy access to a great global platform to sell through.
It wasn’t all good for Amazon, with a small proportion of the panel commenting negatively towards the overall brand. This proportion commented on bad press they have read about bad worker treatment, through zero hour contracts, and tax avoidance. In spite of this, most of this segment still found themselves using Amazon for the convenience.
