Thus, the use of the Amazon Marketplace is open to both the trader and the private customer.
Customers become business partners
A private customer can be known as a buyer. In this case, the customer receives personal purchase recommendations and / or cross-selling recommendations, which can be delivered by Amazon Prime the next day.
In addition, a buyer has the possibility to create their own wish list or to write reviews about the experience with a purchased product.
Private individuals become suppliers
In addition, a private customer can also appear as a supplier and, for example, sell new or used items via the Amazon Marketplace.
The only important thing is that the item to be sold is already listed on Amazon, since private customers, unlike business customers, can not list individual articles in the Amazon catalog.
The Advantage program
In addition to the volume, Amazon also offers the opportunity to distribute its own titles in the form of books, audio books, music CDs, video DVDs, etc. through a self-publishing house.

All Amazon services are open to the customer
On the vendors' side, the entire spectrum of the Amazon services is available to the commercial customers, from the fulfillment and e-payment services to the aforementioned Amazon Web Services as well as the Elastic-Compute-Cloud, also called Amazon EC21.
