$ 160 billion - this is the amount that the Amazon founder's fortune is estimated at. His path can hardly be repeated, but one can and should learn from his mistakes and decisions. Seven years without profit and analysts' forecasts about imminent bankruptcy - we tell how an entrepreneur managed to overcome difficulties and build a company worth more than $ 1 trillion.

Jeff Bezos is considered one of the pioneers of e-commerce. In 1994, he left his position as vice president of a Wall Street company to start his own business. Dropping everything, he moved to Seattle, where he began to develop his plan.

 

Bezos was about to name his business Cadabra, but a lawyer convinced him not to - the word was consonant with the word cadaver. Finally, the entrepreneur settled on Amazon, in honor of the largest river in the world - hence the original company logo.

 

Seattle was chosen by Bezos as headquarters. It was easy to find technicians there, and there was a huge market for book distributors in neighboring Oregon. Bezos started looking for money for the project, while programmers began developing the company's website.

The site Amazon.com began its work in 1995 and within a few months hit all kinds of Internet ratings.

Bezos currently owns 54 million shares in Amazon, bringing his fortune to more than $ 170 billion. Since the beginning of the year, the company's shares have risen 73%, including a 2.1% increase on Wednesday, August 5th.

 

Amazon has seen the highest profit in the company's 26-year history in recent months, despite investors estimating that profits will be wiped out because of the $ 4 billion cost of the health crisis.

 

On Quora people try to find how much money goes to Bezos when we buy something. Bemorepanda selected the top answers.

Jeff Bezos is the first man to reach a fortune of 200 billion dollars, more precisely 204.6 billion. It happened after the capital of Amazon, the company he founded, increased by 2%. Thus, the wealth of Jeff Bezos became 90 billion higher than that of Bill Gates, who is in second place in the top of the world's rich.

 

Experts say the Amazon founder's fortune would have been even greater if he hadn't gone through the most expensive divorce in history last year. His ex-wife received 25% of the company's shares, which are now worth $ 63 billion.

top-products-sold-on-amazoncom-that-saw-an-increase-in-price-of-up-to-1000-during-the-pandemic

Amazon has been accused of raising the prices of essential products such as disinfectant soap and toilet paper, according to a report by a consumer rights group.

 

The Public Citizen report looked at more than 10 products, including those sold by third parties and those "sold by Amazon." Thus, between May and August, the prices of some products increased fourfold, violating Amazon's own pricing policy.

 

Amazon is raising prices on face masks and disinfectants in the worst phase of the pandemic. The complaint came from an American consumer association that found that the prices of certain products had risen by 1000% compared to the prices of Amazon listed above or those of other retailers.

 

In response to this report, Amazon said that "there was no room for price increases" in its service, including products that it sells directly. "Our systems are designed to offer customers the best price online and if we see an error we work quickly to resolve it," said a spokesman. The prices for hand sanitizers would have increased by 48%, but other disposable masks have reached the addition of 1,000%, Public Citizen reports.

 

Examples of prices increased on Amazon

 

1.Disposable Face Masks Package: 1000% Price Increase

Disposable face masks has been priced as high as $39.99. The price for 50 masks generally were around $4 before the pandemic. In of the reviews there was indicated that the straps fall off and that the packaging does not contain the total amount of masks.

 

2.Hand Sanitizer: 48% Price Increase

 On August 16, 2020, there was sold on Amazon a 12-pack of 8oz. “Germ-X Hand Sanitizer” for $35.38. The same day, on another site it was sold for $1.99.

 

3.Disinfectant Spray: 87% Price Increase

Antibacterial disinfectant sprays are hard to find anywhere online. The “Bissell Woolite Advanced Stain and Odor Remover + Sanitize” has been available on Amazon for more than five years priced at $6.99 but has been marked up routinely since March 19, 2020, when it was priced at $13.04.

 

 

4.Antibacterial Soap: 470% Price Increase

The “Dial Liquid Hand Soap, Spring Water, 7.5 Fl. Oz” which has been priced on Amazon.com in recent months as high as $7 and as low as $1.49.

 

5.Nitrile Disposable Gloves: 336% Price Increase

The pack of 100 “Safeguard Nitrile Disposable Gloves” is sold on Amazon.com for $29.95 but before the pandemic was sold by Amazon for as little as $8.91.

 

6.Toilet Paper: 528% Price Increase

The “Scott 1000 Sheets Per Roll, 8 Toilet Paper Rolls” was sold for $36.39. This represents a 528% price increase over the $6.89, the price that other sites offer.

 

7.Paper Towels: 303% Price Increase

Amazon recently sold “Brawny Tear-A-Square Paper Towels, 8 Rolls” for $46.94, a 303% increase over the recent low price of $15.49.

 

8.Flour: 425% Price Increase

The recently sold flour on Amazon named “Pillsbury BEST All Purpose Unbleached Flour, 5 Pound (Pack of 8)” was for $80.35. When a bag of flour is typically sold for as little as $2.36.

 

9.Sugar: 520% Price Increase

Like with flour and other house-holding products, shortages and increased demand have been common with sugar. Amazon recently sold “Domino Pure Cane Confectioners Powdered Sugar, 1 lb” for $5.56 per box, when the price of $1.07 is available on other sites.

 

10.Corn Starch: 1010% Price Increase

This month Amazon sold “Clabber Girl Corn Starch, 6.5 Ounce” for $8.99, a stunning 1010% increase over the $0.89 that other retailers charge for this item.

 

11.Rice: 641% Price Increase

Amazon recently sold “Goya Canilla Enriched Extra Long Grain Rice, 48oz, Arroz Enriquecido de Grano Extra Largo” for $19.99. While in other online shops there is a price of $3.12 for this item.

 

Amazon uses automated systems and human moderators to identify pricing trends on the platform. However, according to Public Citizen, the technology giant has failed to keep price increases at a distance not only from third-party suppliers but also from its own brands.

Price scam is an exploitation of the most vulnerable, especially during a national emergency. There is no excuse for Amazon, one of the largest and most successful companies in history.

leaked-email-from-amazon-posted-online-its-hilarious

A Reddit user posted a screenshot of what is supposed to be - an Amazon’s e-mail template.

And no, nobody hacked it or anything. It came into this world the same way I did. By accident.


Someone at the company sent it out and we don’t know if that person still has their job or not, but let’s appreciate the brilliant text either way. It now has tens of thousands of upvotes. As of this article, the actual number is 76K.


A few funny comments to look at:


  • It's basically a writing equivalent to Lorem ipsum... quick brown fox is a pangram which is useful for more than just filler text.
  • I said this out loud in my kitchen and the furniture started floating.
  • CTA: Call To Action (took me a moment)
  • I use short sentences. I use sentences of medium length. I make music. Music.
