Top Ten Reasons Amazon is Dominating the Apparel Industry

Are you an apparel retailer on Amazon? If not, here’s why you should be. Click Z reported that over the past six months, more than half of consumers bought clothing on Amazon. In 2017, Amazon accounted for 7.9% of U.S. Apparel Sales. Amazon is set to take the lead this year. It is not a secret that Amazon continues to establish its dominance in the fashion industry and e-commerce sphere as a whole.

Here are 10 Reasons why people are shopping on Amazon:

Convenience: Buy with just one-click.
Low Prices: Want an item at a lower price? Just shop gently used or resale items on the marketplace.
Safety: Equipped with Paypal, you don’t have to input any credit or debit card payment. Also, Amazon creates the trust for their shoppers by protecting them from scams.
Variety: The ability to order a bikini year-round, a coat for a trip, and a new pair of dress shoes give Amazon the edge.
Reviews: Get customer feedback on the item, and also the seller. It’s the next closest thing to “Try before you buy!”
Options: The ability to compare prices and items from dozens of suppliers in one place gives consumers the power in their purchases.
Saves Gas: There’s no need to drive from store to store, or even any store for that matter.
Shop Under Any Circumstance: Sick in bed? Can’t get to the store? No need when you can order groceries, household items, and everything else from your laptop or phone in bed.
Flexible Shopping Time: There are no 10am-9pm store hours to work around. Shop anytime, anywhere.
Wish List: Don’t get paid until next week? With the ability to make a virtual wishlist, you can set aside everything you need and buy with one-click when that direct deposit hits.

Prime Membership benefits go beyond the aforementioned reasons. Shopping is changing and is in higher demand if you can keep up with today’s fast-paced marketplace. If half of the consumer market is buying apparel on Amazon, then that’s where your products need to be. Take advantage of the opportunity for increased traffic and sales.
