I was getting ready to list my products on Amazon, but I came across this article:

[online.wsj.com...]

Has anyone found Amazon competing with them after they started listing their products there?

Reading all this, I'm not even sure I want to BUY stuff from them anymore. They sure are handy though. For me, that's always been the selling point... All different kinds of things from one place. One site, one order... Done. I always try to get the stuff that comes directly from them.

Ive been selling on amazon for almost 2 years, sales continually to increase. Amazon was selling in my niche PRIOR to me selling there but I do quite well there even competing with them. Its not all doom and gloom.

What do you guys think about Amazon Product Ads? Is there a danger of Amazon using ad data to horn in on your niche? I would think it's a lot less dangerous than actually selling on Amazon.

We use their Product Ads. They will have your click data and the product listing copy/image but that is it. You control the customer experience and only you will have the data if the customer buys.
