Holiday 2020 will be an extended shopping season starting with Amazon’s AMZN Prime Day on October 13th and 14th. Many other retailers will be following suit to compete for the customer’s dollars over the two-day period. Last year Amazon Prime Day raked in $6.93 billion worldwide from 124 million U.S. Prime users (up almost 11% from the previous year). For 2020, the projections are sales of $9.91 billion worldwide from more than 142 million U.S. users, surpassing 50% of the US population.
Andrew Lipsman, principal analyst of eMarketer, said in an interview,” Prime Day is a coordinated industry-wide event with other retailers planning promotions to compete with Amazon for shoppers’ attention.” The value of each shopping
YouTube already makes money through advertisements, YouTube Premium (to get rid of said advertisements), and memberships to specific channels. It looks like the company might be preparing to add general shopping functionality to the list, according to a new report.
Bloomberg reports that YouTube is asking creators to tag and track products featured in their videos, which will be linked to analytics and shopping tools from Google. The end goal is for Google to sell items directly through YouTube, instead of only advertising items from other sites. A YouTube spokesperson confirmed the company is testing the functionality with a handful of channels, but declined to share more details.
The most likely implementation of this feature would be based on Google Shopping, which is already tightly integrated with Search. Google Shopping is a unified storefront for thousands of retail shops large and small, including Best Buy, Target, Costco, and Overstock. However,
As shoppers prepare to welcome Halloween, the Black Friday deals have already arrived.
Major retailers including Target, Best Buy and Walmart are offering Black Friday prices at the same time as Amazon Prime Day on Oct. 13 and 14, the e-commerce company’s two-day shopping event.
“Prime Day is a shopping holiday,” said Best Buy CEO Corie Barry in an interview with NBC News. “That means lots of people are looking for great deals during the shopping holiday and we feel like it’s really important for us to play a role.”
Best Buy announced on Thursday dozens of deals on Oct. 13 and 14 from its yet to-be-released Black Friday ad, including a 70-inch Samsung 4K Smart TV for $529.99. Walmart is launching an online-only Big Save Event two days before Prime Day through Oct. 15. Target Deal Days will run during Prime Day with deep discounts across electronics, home, and
With little more income than the state pension, Christine Chapman is careful with her money.
The 70-year-old keeps paperwork meticulously in a filing cabinet and knows what is coming in and going out.
Her bills were cut by hundreds of pounds a year, simply by switching insurance, phone and mobile suppliers.
It all sounds like an advert for competition and the benefits of shopping around.
But Mrs Chapman was lucky.
The widow, from County Durham, does not have a computer and does not know how to operate one. Her smartphone is only used for calls and messages to family and friends. She had no way of shopping around for better deals.
What she does have is a caring brother-in-law who taught IT and, after a conversation at a family gathering, realised Mrs Chapman
New Amazon technology, introduced at two Amazon Go stores this week, lets shoppers pay for purchases by holding their hands over a scanner. The system, called Amazon One, may herald a new way of identifying yourself and paying for things that could change the way people shop, enter concerts, use public transportation, and many other things.
You’ve probably used a fingerprint scanner or facial recognition to unlock your smartphone. You already know that your voice and your retinas can be used to positively identify you and give you access to your various devices, and possibly to secure government or corporate facilities. Amazon’s new Amazon One technology takes biometrics a step further by allowing shoppers to pay for purchases with a simple scan of their palms.
To stave off privacy concerns, the company says it is encrypting biometric data before storing it in the cloud, and that the data will be
