Amazon has particularly been in the news lately due to its launch of the popular e-reader the Kindle, made exclusively by Amazon. The Kindle features a unique e-ink display that is not backlit; rather, the text is written in "digital ink" that looks like printed text on a page. Amazon has done remarkably well with its e-reader and offers one of the widest selections of e-books on the market today. While publishing companies chafe at the lowered prices, Amazon has successfully maintained its blanket $9.99 price for e-books.
Amazon also does a remarkable amount of print book sales, especially since the website introduced used sales. Customers can choose to either buy the new book title through Amazon or a used book through the outside vendor. The same applies to used DVDs, games, etc. Amazon adds an additional benefit of offering trusted payment options, where the customer can purchase an item sold and shipped by a partner vendor, but pay through Amazon. This relieves consumer fear about paying an outside online vendor.
Amazon.co.uk offers several shipping options, including a Free Super Saver Delivery. The Free Super Saver Delivery is offered on eligible products and generally takes 1-2 business days longer than standard delivery, but is completely free to the customer. Amazon also offers what they call "Frustration-Free Packaging," which is a simplified system of packaging that protects the product while not including intricate packaging materials like plastic clamshells (which require knives or scissors and can be quite sharp), twist ties, and complicated unnecessary packaging. This system also reduces packaging waste.
