A week after the company announced a new model that allowed users to get 10% off purchases, the world is starting to take notice.
But that doesn’t mean Amazon isn’t looking at other options.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon is considering buying up the market for “speciality e-commerce stores” and selling them for as little as $99.
In addition, Amazon has already announced plans to build a new shopping hub in New York City.
These plans are also being eyed by other big players in the space, like eBay and Alibaba.
The Wall Street Post reports that Amazon is also considering selling a line of “specialty furniture” at half the price of regular Amazon-owned furniture.
It’s unclear what exactly these “special” offerings would entail, but the Wall’s sources say they would be designed to sell for around $1,000.
These kinds of deals are common for Amazon sellers in China, and it makes sense for the company to look to capitalize on that market.
It could be a long time before Amazon makes any moves in this space, but for now, we have to wait and see what the company plans to do with its newfound power.
