Amazon is already adding thousands of new sellers every day in 2021

Image Description

Amazon’s online marketplace is continuing to enjoy huge growth with 295,000 new sellers added to its e-commerce outlet in just the first few months of 2021.

The data, collated by Marketplace Pulse up to March 21, is equivalent to 3,734 new third-party sellers becoming a part of Amazon Marketplace every day, or 155 per hour.

By the end of 2021 Amazon Marketplace has the potential to have added around 1.4 million additional online businesses to the figure, according to projections created from the data.

The US e-commerce market dominates the vendor sign-up list at 76,769, representing 26% of the overall share. However, the Indian variant of Amazon’s Marketplace has added 29,798 new outlets, or 10.1% so far this year. Canada’s Amazon Marketplace has also enjoyed rapid growth, with 22,088 new sellers added to the ranks. The UK has bolstered the headline number too, with a respectable 19,944 e-commerce outlets joining, or 6.8% of the overall total.

Amazon Marketplace

With global lockdowns continuing to hamper traditional bricks and mortar stores many businesses have opted to join the ranks of e-commerce-only ventures appearing on Amazon’s vast outlet. Small businesses in particular are finding the potential behind the online shopping platform hugely beneficial, with many exploring the power of using an e-commerce package for the first time.

Adding to the appeal is Amazon’s muscle when it comes to handling logistics, with fulfillment procedures that can allow even the smallest of ventures to exploit the management of inventory. They can also use Amazon's storage facilities, meet shipping needs and even enjoy customer services provided by the e-commerce giant, albeit for the relevant fees.

However, Amazon’s marketplace is also an outlet for the huge e-commerce company to sells its own wares, presenting a sizeable level of competition. Many of the new businesses appearing on the platform are faced with Amazon selling the same, or similar products and often for less money.

New sellers also have to buy into Amazon’s ad campaigns if they want to push their own ranking and increase their storefront visibility. Even if they're using this leg-up route businesses still aren’t guaranteed to boost their sales.

  • There's a whole load of useful tools coming to Microsoft Edge

    After releasing the new Chromium-based version of Edge last year, Microsoft has continued to update its browser with new features in an attempt to get even more users to make the switch from Google Chrome.

    For those that want to be the first ones to gain access to all of the new features coming to its browser, the software giant offers three different Microsoft Edge Insider Channels including the Beta Channel, Dev Channel and Canary Channel. While the Beta Channel is updated every four weeks, the Dev Channel is updated weekly and the Canary Channel is updated daily.

    Microsoft has now released its new v96.0.1047.2 build for Edge Dev channel users which packs in a number of new features including support for adding Citations to items in a Collection, support for the Super Duper Secure Mode flag on Linux and more.

    New Dev Channel update

    Although the latest Edge Dev channel update should download and install automatically, if it doesn't, users can head to Edge's settings menu to manually update the browser.

    This new update contains a whole load of useful tools and you can see the full list of new features and fixes by checking out this blog post from Microsoft.

    First off, the company has added support for showing the Downloads menu and button in popup windows that don't have a standard address bar or toolbar. As we mentioned above, Microsoft is also testing out support for adding Citations to items in a Collection which can be quite useful when using Edge for research. Security-conscious users running Edge on Linux will also appreciate the addition of  the Super Duper Secure Mode flag which trades speed for improved security.

    Microsoft has included a number of fixes for common issues such as the browser not letting users sign in, proxy settings be ignored, the new tap page being rendered incorrectly, tabs closing unexpectedly and more.

    As this new update is for the Dev Chanel version of Edge, users on the regular channel can expect to see these features and fixes roll out with the next major release of Microsoft's browser soon.
