Amazon Discount marketplace shipping direct from China

Amazon.com is rumored to be launching a new marketplace under the Amazon.com umbrella that would offer shoppers cheap products that will ship directly from Chinese warehouses.

Product such as apparel and home goods would take nine to 11 days to ship to customers, according to reports.

The move comes as more U.S. consumers are buying from Chinese-based merchants, such as marketplace Temu and apparel merchant Shein. In fact, ecommerce platform and technology vendor Salesforce predicts Chinese shopping apps will take market share during the 2024 holiday season. 63% of Western consumers plan to purchase from a Chinese-based app during the holiday season, such as marketplaces AliExpress and Temu, apparel merchants Cider and Shein, and social media platform TikTok, according to a May 2024 Salesforce survey of 996 shoppers.
