Notes from the Amazon Earnings Call!

I'm going to leave the details until I can review the transcript, but I'm listening for info on 3P sales, FBA and other Seller facing segments.

I will continue to update this post as I get more info: Update: Q&A session
  • 3rd party units grew faster than Amazon's retail units.
  • Active seller accounts grew 18% Y/Y
  • Amazon Prime, in many cases, uses ground transportation for their 2-day shipping rather than Air, because of the how their distributions centers are distributed throughout the country.
  • Sellers take customer service on Amazon very seriously and FBA is a key to translating the Amazon customer experience to those 3P sales.

    Just my 12%
