    Amazon is making a bid to steal customers from online marketplaces such as eBay with a new option to “make an offer” on items.

    They will have to be more competitive on fees, and slicker to use.

    And sort out Amazon Logistics so they deliver on time - otherwise Amazon Prime will begin to suffer also.

    What this does confirm, of course, is that Amazon are firmly in the stack it high sell it cheap arena. Which means that if you are selling premium items their offering only really works for clearing old stock.
