There’s no question that Amazon dominates the ecommerce market in the U.S. This is largely driven by Amazon Prime, the standard for online shopping convenience. New data, however, suggests that Amazon may be reaching its limit. As a result, Amazon is focusing on expanding in other areas, such as video production, logistics, and tapping into larger ecommerce markets such as China and India.
With Amazon Prime setting the standard for convenience for buyers and higher sales for sellers, more and more sellers are signing up to join Amazon’s Seller Fulfilled Prime program. While there are many benefits to Prime-badging your products, maintaining a 2-day shipping order fulfillment can be costly without the right systems in place.

With the holidays fast approaching, Amazon and eBay are preparing to meet the demands of today’s shoppers. Amazon has restricted new merchants from using FBA, while eBay is attempting to woo new customers through recent applications of artificial intelligence and social commerce.
As eBay’s largest category, eBay Motors features a wide selection of parts and accessories for cars, trucks, motorcycles and boats. Online sales are booming and expected to grow by 12-16% over the next four years. But with the market becoming more crowded due to the low barrier of entry, auto parts retailers will need to list smarter to beat the competition.
In part one of our roadmap to ecommerce success, we discussed specific ways auto parts retailers can boost visibility and brand confidence through effective product listings, virtual SKUs and a dynamic web store experience. Increasing sales is important, but the backend components of an ecommerce business are equally important because they can make or break the customer experience.
Auto parts retailer AJP Distributors (AJDM) has been selling aftermarket performance parts and accessories for nearly a decade. They sell more than 7,000 SKUs through online marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon, and orders are fulfilled through their 20,000 sq ft distribution warehouse, as well as dropshippers.
Jazva is thrilled to exhibit at the SEMA Show for the very first time! With more than 25,000 new products on display and 2,400 exhibiting companies, the SEMA Show is one of the premier auto parts trade shows in the world.
Online automotive parts and accessories sales is expected to reach $7.4 billion in 2016, excluding auctions and used parts. While this is still a small percentage of the $335 billion U.S. ecommerce market, there is significant room for growth. Auto parts ecommerce is expected to grow by 12-16% over the next four years.
