The wsj link is subscriber only..
One way to avoid Amazon "eating your lunch" if you are selling products made by someone else ..is not to use their "fulfillment"..or better still, to manufacture what you sell yourself, and not use their "fulfillment" which is IMO only suited to very high volume low margin sellers and big box outfits..
btw.. Amazon require barcodes to list whether or not you use their fulfillment systems..
MAP Minimum advertised Price ( retail price fixing ) [en.wikipedia.org...] ..many threads on here about it in the past..illegal in many countries..
