Amazon Explore: A New Way to “Travel”

Amazon, Amazon, Amazon...what will you offer next? When I first started reading about Amazon Explore, I thought that it was just a virtual video sort of thing. But it is way more than that.

When you visit the Amazon Explore page, you can browse bookings by price, new experiences, or by region. If you like what you see, book your time slot and mark your calendar! You can find your booking time in the “Orders” section of your Amazon account as if you purchased a product.

When your scheduled time rolls around, your host will live stream directly to you – one on one (or whoever else is in the room with you). However, this is not merely a passive viewing experience. If it was, you’d go watch a 4k video of Italy on YouTube right?

Amazon Explore allows for an interactive experience between host and guest. Ask your host questions, snap photos, talk to local artisans you may run into by chance, and shop online for souvenirs… all live from your virtual adventure. Items you purchase from your host are all handled securely through Amazon’s payment system (everything is already tied to your Amazon account).

How often is it that you get a personal, one on one tour of somewhere halfway around the world with live access to a local expert who can answer your questions on the fly?

And if you live in an interesting place, you could even become a host and make money.

How to Optimize for Alexa Voice Search

Voice search and Amazon are tightly connected because of Echo products that feature an AI assistant named Alexa. Since Alexa only “shops” on Amazon, more people using Echo means that more customers will be shopping on Amazon.

And just imagine if your product was what Alexa "sold" the customer when they asked for Coconut Shampoo? Here is an article from SellerLabs on how to increase your chances of being the chosen one.

Business Growth Tool for Amazon Sellers Adds New Profit & Accounting Features

Automate Pricing fallows you to quickly update prices across a large catalog of products, without spending a lot of time to make updates listing by listing. With the newly launched business pricing rules, Amazon Business sellers can now create rules that will automatically update their business prices and quantity discounts. You can make these updates based on changes to your consumer prices, saving both time and effort.

Similar to existing price rules, you can control the prices by defining rule parameters, setting minimum and maximum price boundaries for single-unit business prices, and selecting the SKUs on which to automate pricing.
For quantity discounts, the percentage discount you enter for each quantity tier will be used to determine the minimum price applicable for that specific quantity tier. For example, if the minimum price for a SKU is USD $20, and you entered 10% as the discount on 5+ units, the minimum price applicable for quantity tier 5+ units would be USD $20 * (1-10%) = USD $18.

For more information, see Create a business pricing rule.
