Based on a Survey of 2,000+ U.S. Consumers


The report reveals that half of the customers buying at Amazon already started the product search on the online platform and outlines how they become a buyer.

The study is based on the buying habits of over 2,000 U.S. consumers who bought on the online platform over the past two years. 

The document shows that over 50% of consumers buy online at least once every few weeks and that nearly half of them visit Amazon several times a week, and over three-quarters visit the site at least every month. Amazon is the dominant E-Commerce platform for U.S. consumers, followed by Walmart.com and eBay. 

Online consumers expect to find the brands they are familiar with on Amazon and actively look for them on the E-Commerce platform. The document explains that most consumers use a computer to buy a product online while 26% prefer to use a smartphone. There is also increasing penetration of voice-activated devices and the Internet of the Things when it comes to purchasing.

Price is the main buying decision factor for online consumers on Amazon. The study points out that most of them pay attention to reviews before buying a product. The ads on Amazon tend to be useful to consumers who buy every day online. In addition, nearly 50% of them do not usually past the second page of search results - not to be undermined as a significant part of demand generation on Amazon comes from product advertising.

The report concludes with an overview of the study's main findings. It is key that retailers and brands need to implement measures to place Amazon market strategy at the heart of their eCommerce plans.
