Why bother with multi-channel eCommerce?
162 million of people made 265 million transactions on eBay worldwide in 2015 with total turn-over of $20.68 billion. In Australia eBay holds 20% market share in eCommerce and turns over $3B annually.
Amazon is even bigger player, turning over $100 billion annually and around 40% of units sold on Amazon are from third party sellers who utilize Amazon marketplace. While Amazon has very limited operations in Australia at the moment, it is a promising channels for retailers who play on the international scene.
As a retailer you can use these platforms to get extra sales and customers. To make a bit simplified analogy it is like placing your store inside a booming shopping mall or on High street versus running a stand-alone store in a quiet suburb. You’ll get a good additional exposure, albeit for some extra cost and having your competitors in couple steps/clicks.
