Nike has taken the plunge to start selling its products directly on Amazon; following a distinct lack of presence on the e-retailer giant’s website.
A pilot scheme will see a limited selection of Nike merchandise being sold directly on Amazon, which, if developed into a larger relationship, is predicted to increase the sports brand’s revenue by over $200 million.
The fact that Nike wasn’t already on Amazon may come as a surprise but a shockingly large number of e-retailers are not multichannel selling and third parties are taking advantage of this; Nike was already one of Amazon’s top-selling brands, via other sellers.
Multi-channel selling will bring Nike huge benefits, including:
Pricing and distribution control; and
Increased exposure to customers
And these benefits apply to all retailers – big and small – thanks to multichannel management software, making it easy to stock, sell and ship your products from one central location.
So if you are not already multi-channel selling, take a note of Nike – just do it.
