So I am a brick & mortar retailer exploring the possibility of selling online, I have done ebay before but not through our store. How does one sell through Amazon? I am not sure if it goes against everything I believe by being an independent retailer. Does anyone have any feedback?
Thanks!

Actually, just the other day WebRetailer posted a pretty helpful article when it comes to information like this.

Check it out: www.webretailer.com/lean-comme...tics-marketplace-seller-survey

It offers a really informative snapshot of how sellers make their money and where they find success, from marketplace to marketplace.

Why not sell on both? Why limit yourself? In any case, currently for my niche, eBay represents 74% of my online sales, with Amazon at 23%. The remainder is mostly websites. To be fair, I haven't spent much time marketing my websites. It takes time to learn this. These are 2014 YTD numbers. I will say that Amazon appears to be coming on strong - it is up 52% over YTD last year for us. However, we have also spent considerable time focusing on Amazon which made the growth difference.

We totally agree - sellers definitely have the most success when they avoid limiting themselves to a single selling channel, and instead go with the multi-channel approach, integrating both shopping carts AND marketplaces.

It is definitely good idea to go more than one channel and increase the revenue.
By the way has anyone heard of fishpond.co.uk ?
