https://awesomers.com/162 --> Show notes News is happening every single day that impacts Amazon Sellers and eCommerce companies in general and here are a few that caught Steve's eye this week: 1) Amazon admits it uses marketplace Seller data to come up with products.  https://www.cnbc.com/2019/11/19/amazon-uses-aggregated-data-from-sellers-to-build-its-own-products.html 2) Amazon responds to some Seller concerns, but ignores others. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kirimasters/2019/11/20/amazon-addresses-some-seller-concerns-ignores-others-in-antitrust-inquiry/#3e285b883445 3) Amazons written response to FTC Anti-Trust Inquiry.https://docs.house.gov/meetings/JU/JU05/20190716/109793/HHRG-116-JU05-20190716-SD038.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0o-I9gyz7rvIIuM5Qv2wDDe0pD5XoBCHcGIM0iZeNiWu55gUc6HTU8DVk Top Take Aways: Forcing Brands to match prices of "competitors" Buy Box factors remain elusive.
