Brick-and-Mortar Shoppers Are Beginning to Prefer Amazon

Recently, statistics have shown that Amazon’s dramatic shift to one-day shipping for Prime members. Additionally, Amazon is now shipping items under the $5 mark using free, one-day shipping, which has had a dramatic effect on brick-and-mortar shoppers. Before this recent power move by Amazon, many of these consumers were far more likely to get such items at brick-and-mortar stores. Now, with the availability of simple, cheap products on Prime one-day shipping, these consumers are beginning to rely more and more on Amazon’s service–a testament to their steadfast commitment to bringing products to consumers at a faster and cheaper rate.

Many were skeptical of the costliness that would go into creating such an efficient shipping network, however, it is safe to say that Amazon has proved that their efforts were well worth it. Now, in part because of its recent one-day shipping commitment, around half of the United States shopping population is an Amazon Prime member.

Additionally, Amazon is winning over brick-and-mortar shoppers with its fiercely competitive pricing. At this rate, even Target and Walmart cannot keep up, as though they are capable of one-day shipping, they have not invested the same amount of resources into the service as Amazon has. As the year progresses, Amazon expects an increase still in Prime memberships, as people recognize the benefits of having one more and more. Despite some of Amazon’s bad press in the news, the company shows no signs of slowing down.
