How to run an anti-Trump bookstore on Amazon’s platform
Posted On July 24, 2021
Amazon has rolled out a tool for its online bookstores to help them run their operations better.
The new “Amazon Seller App” is the latest step by Amazon to make its platform more attractive to independent bookstores.
The service will help them attract and keep booksellers by allowing them to sell items directly to customers, rather than having to rely on Amazon to get them in front of their customers.
The company is using Amazon’s new platform as an opportunity to “offer customers the ability to buy from Amazon and receive their purchase in less than five minutes,” the company said in a blog post on Wednesday.
“It will help us keep our customers in the loop on what’s happening with Amazon,” the blog post said.
The app allows bookstores “to get the attention of shoppers who want to shop at Amazon by giving them the ability at a glance to search for and find books that are currently available in the Kindle store,” the post said, adding that it can be used to find and review books.
Amazon has previously created an app for its Prime service for independent booksellors, called “Amazon Bookstore.”
Amazon’s app was introduced in September and it allows people to buy and browse books directly from the app, without the need for a bookseller to provide them with a book.
