Amazon Starts Javari In Germany, MyHabit in the USA
In addition to Javari’s global presence in the USA, Japan, England and France, Amazon has now expanded the operations (German press release) of the shoe and handbag business to Germany:
Is this a cause for concern for Zalando and others currently occupying the German market? Not really. Not even Amazon has really grasped yet how properly engage women with online shoe sales.
In parallel, Amazon is moving forward with their live shopping offensive and is bringing a rebranded BuyVIP to the US as MyHabit (press release). Noteworthy: on both e-commerce sites you can log on with your Amazon credentials, which is surely a mode which Amazon can use in the future as a sort of “Amazon Connect”. Such a service could then be opened up to other e-commerce sites.
In the long standing rivalry between Amazon vs. eBay, the private shopping club market might have been another battlefield, if not for eBay’s decision to exclude Ruelala from their recent takeover of GSI Commerce. Perhaps the German Brands4Friends can make moves towards the US.
