History

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos

Further information: Timeline of Amazon.com The company was founded as a result of what Jeff Bezos
Jeff Bezos
called his "regret minimization framework," which described his efforts to fend off any regrets for not participating sooner in the Internet
Internet
business boom during that time.[13] In 1994, Bezos left his employment as vice-president of D. E. Shaw & Co., a Wall Street firm, and moved to Seattle, Washington. He began to work on a business plan[14] for what would eventually become Amazon.com. On July 5, 1994, Bezos initially incorporated the company with the name Cadabra, Inc.[15] Bezos changed the name to Amazon.com, Inc. a few months later, after a lawyer misheard its original name as "cadaver".[16] In September 1994, Bezos purchased the URL Relentless .com
.com
and briefly considered naming his online store Relentless, but friends told him the name sounded a bit sinister. The domain is still owned by Bezos and still redirects to the retailer.[17][18] The company went online as Amazon .com
.com
in 1995.[19] Bezos selected the name Amazon by looking through the dictionary; he settled on "Amazon" because it was a place that was "exotic and different", just as he had envisioned for his Internet
Internet
enterprise. The Amazon River, he noted, was the biggest river in the world, and he planned to make his store the biggest bookstore in the world.[19] Bezos placed a premium on his head start in building a brand and told a reporter, "There's nothing about our model that can't be copied over time. But you know, McDonald's
McDonald's
got copied. And it still built a huge, multibillion-dollar company. A lot of it comes down to the brand name. Brand names are more important online than they are in the physical world."[20] Additionally, a name that began with "A" was preferential due to the probability it would occur at the top of any list that was alphabetized.[citation needed] After reading a report about the future of the Internet
Internet
that projected annual Web commerce growth at 2,300%, Bezos created a list of 20 products that could be marketed online. He narrowed the list to what he felt were the five most promising products, which included: compact discs, computer hardware, computer software, videos, and books. Bezos finally decided that his new business would sell books online, due to the large worldwide demand for literature, the low price points for books, along with the huge number of titles available in print.[21] Amazon was founded in the garage of Bezos' home in Bellevue, Washington.[22] The company began as an online bookstore, which was an idea spurred off with a discussion with John Ingram of Ingram Book
Book
(now called Ingram Content Group), along with Keyur Patel who still holds a stake in Amazon.[23] Amazon was able to access books at wholesale from Ingram. In the first two months of business, Amazon sold to all 50 states and over 45 countries. Within two months, Amazon's sales were up to $20,000/week.[24] While the largest brick and mortar bookstores and mail order catalogs might offer 200,000 titles, an online bookstore could "carry" several times more, since it would have a practically unlimited virtual warehouse: those of the actual product makers/suppliers.[citation needed] Amazon was incorporated in Washington State in 1994. In July 1995, the company began service and sold its first book on Amazon.com: Douglas Hofstadter's Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought.[25] In October 1995, the company announced itself to the public.[26] In 1996, it was reincorporated in Delaware. Amazon issued its initial public offering of stock on May 15, 1997, trading under the NASDAQ
NASDAQ
stock exchange symbol AMZN, at a price of US$18.00 per share ($1.50 after three stock splits in the late 1990s).[citation needed] Barnes & Noble sued Amazon on May 12, 1997, alleging that Amazon's claim to be "the world's largest bookstore" was false because it "...isn't a bookstore at all. It's a book broker." The suit was later settled out of court and Amazon continued to make the same claim.[27] Walmart
Walmart
sued Amazon on October 16, 1998, alleging that Amazon had stolen Walmart's trade secrets by hiring former Walmart
Walmart
executives. Although this suit was also settled out of court, it caused Amazon to implement internal restrictions and the reassignment of the former Walmart
Walmart
executives.[27] In 1999, Amazon first attempted to enter the publishing business by buying a defunct imprint, "Weathervane", and publishing some books "selected with no apparent thought", according to The New Yorker. The imprint quickly vanished again, and as of 2014 Amazon representatives said that they had never heard of it.[28] Since June 19, 2000, Amazon's logotype has featured a curved arrow leading from A to Z, representing that the company carries every product from A to Z, with the arrow shaped like a smile.[29] Amazon's initial business plan was unusual; it did not expect to make a profit for four to five years. This "slow" growth caused stockholders to complain that the company was not reaching profitability fast enough to justify their investment or even survive in the long-term. The dot-com bubble burst at the start of the 21st century and destroyed many e-companies in the process, but Amazon survived and moved forward beyond the tech crash to become a huge player in online sales. The company finally turned its first profit in the fourth quarter of 2001: $5 million (i.e., 1¢ per share), on revenues of more than $1 billion. This profit margin, though extremely modest, proved to skeptics that Bezos' unconventional business model could succeed.[30] In 1999, Time magazine named Bezos the Person of the Year when it recognized the company's success in popularizing online shopping.[citation needed] In 2011, Amazon had 30,000 full-time employees in the USA, and by the end of 2016, it had 180,000 employees. The company employs 306,800 people worldwide in full and part-time jobs.[31] On October 11, 2016, Amazon announced plans to build convenience stores and develop curbside pickup locations for food.[32] In December 2016, the Amazon Go
Amazon Go
store was opened to Amazon employees in Seattle.[33] The store uses a variety of sensors and automatically charges a shopper's Amazon account as they walk out of the store, eliminating the need for checkout lines.[34][35] The store is planned to open for the general public in early 2017.[36][37][needs update]

to acquire Whole Foods
Whole Foods
at US$42 per share

In June 2017, Amazon announced that it would acquire Whole Foods, a high-end supermarket chain with over 400 stores, for $13.4 billion.[11][38] The acquisition was seen by media experts as a move to strengthen its physical holdings and challenge Walmart's supremacy as a brick and mortar retailer. This sentiment was heightened by the fact that the announcement coincided with Walmart's purchase of men's apparel company Bonobos.[39] On August 23, 2017, Whole Foods shareholders, as well as the Federal Trade Commission, approved the deal.[40][41] In September 2017, Amazon announced plans to locate a second headquarters in a metropolitan area with at least a million people.[42] Cities needed to submit their presentations by October 19, 2017 for the project called HQ2.[43] The $5 billion second headquarters, starting with 500,000 square feet and eventually expanding to as much as 8 million square feet, may have as many as 50,000 employees.[44] In 2020, Amazon will build a new downtown Seattle

In 1984, Brilliance Audio invented a technique for recording twice as much on the same cassette.[81] The technique involved recording on each of the two channels of each stereo track.[81] It has been credited with revolutionizing the burgeoning audiobook market in the mid-1980s since it made unabridged books affordable.[81] ComiXology ComiXology

controversies § Amazon reviews Amazon allows users to submit reviews to the web page of each product. Reviewers must rate the product on a rating scale from one to five stars. Amazon provides a badging option for reviewers which indicate the real name of the reviewer (based on confirmation of a credit card account) or which indicate that the reviewer is one of the top reviewers by popularity. Customers may comment or vote on the reviews, indicating whether they found a review helpful to them. If a review is given enough "helpful" hits, it appears on the front page of the product. In 2010, Amazon was reported as being the largest single source of Internet
Internet
consumer reviews.[105] When publishers asked Bezos why Amazon would publish negative reviews, he defended the practice by claiming that Amazon .com
.com
was "taking a different approach ... we want to make every book available—the good, the bad and the ugly ... to let truth loose".[106] There have been cases of positive reviews being written and posted by public relations companies on behalf of their clients[107] and instances of writers using pseudonyms to leave negative reviews of their rivals' works. Content search "Search Inside the Book" is a feature which allows customers to search for keywords in the full text of many books in the catalog.[108][109] The feature started with 120,000 titles (or 33 million pages of text) on October 23, 2003.[110] There are about 300,000 books in the program. Amazon has cooperated with around 130 publishers to allow users to perform these searches.[citation needed] To avoid copyright violations, Amazon does not return the computer-readable text of the book. Instead, it returns a picture of the matching page, instructs the web browser to disable printing and puts limits on the number of pages in a book a single user can access. Additionally, customers can purchase online access to some of the same books via the "Amazon Upgrade" program.[citation needed] Third-party sellers Amazon derives many of its sales (around 40% in 2008) from third-party sellers who sell products on Amazon.[111] Associates receive a commission for referring customers to Amazon by placing links to Amazon on their websites if the referral results in a sale. Worldwide, Amazon has "over 900,000 members" in its affiliate programs.[112] In the middle of 2014, the Amazon Affiliate Program is used by 1.2% of all websites and it is the second most popular advertising network after Google
Google
Ads.[113] It is frequently used by websites and non-profits to provide a way for supporters to earn them a commission.[114] Amazon reported over 1.3 million sellers sold products through Amazon's websites in 2007. Unlike eBay, Amazon sellers do not have to maintain separate payment accounts; all payments are handled by Amazon.[citation needed] Associates can access the Amazon catalog directly on their websites by using the Amazon Web Services
Amazon Web Services
(AWS) XML
XML
service. A new affiliate product, aStore, allows Associates to embed a subset of Amazon products within another website, or linked to another website. In June 2010, Amazon Seller Product Suggestions was launched (rumored to be internally called "Project Genesis") to provide more transparency to sellers by recommending specific products to third-party sellers to sell on Amazon. Products suggested are based on customers' browsing history.[115] Amazon sales rank The Amazon sales rank (ASR) provides an indication of the popularity of a product sold on any Amazon locale. It is a relative indicator of popularity that is updated hourly. Effectively, it is a "best sellers list" for the millions of products stocked by Amazon.[116] While the ASR has no direct effect on the sales of a product, it is used by Amazon to determine which products to include in its best-sellers lists.[116] Products that appear in these lists enjoy additional exposure on the Amazon website and this may lead to an increase in sales. In particular, products that experience large jumps (up or down) in their sales ranks may be included within Amazon's lists of "movers and shakers"; such a listing provides additional exposure that might lead to an increase in sales.[117] For competitive reasons, Amazon does not release actual sales figures to the public. However, Amazon has now begun to release point of sale data via the Nielsen BookScan service to verified authors.[118] While the ASR has been the source of much speculation by publishers, manufacturers, and marketers, Amazon itself does not release the details of its sales rank calculation algorithm. Some companies have analyzed Amazon sales data to generate sales estimates based on the ASR,[119] though Amazon states:

Please keep in mind that our sales rank figures are simply meant to be a guide of general interest for the customer and not definitive sales information for publishers—we assume you have this information regularly from your distribution sources — Amazon .com

Amazon's technology Amazon runs data centers for its online services and owns generators or purchases electricity corresponding to its consumption, mostly renewable energy.[121] The US Navy has stated that its Relocatable Radar remains operable regardless of a new Amazon wind farm in North Carolina.[122][example's importance?] The company also records data on customer buyer behavior which enables them to offer or recommend to an individual specific item or bundles of items based upon preferences demonstrated through purchases or items visited.[123] On January 31, 2013, Amazon experienced an outage that lasted approximately 49 minutes, leaving its site inaccessible to some customers.[124] On May 5, 2014, Amazon unveiled a partnership with Twitter. Twitter users can link their accounts to an Amazon account and automatically add items to their shopping carts by responding to any tweet with an Amazon product link bearing the hashtag #AmazonCart. This allows customers to never leave their Twitter
Twitter
feed and the product is waiting for them when they go to the Amazon website.[125] Multi-level sales strategy Amazon employs a multi-level e-commerce strategy. Amazon started by focusing on business-to-consumer relationships between itself and its customers and business-to-business relationships between itself and its suppliers and then moved to facilitate customer-to-customer with the Amazon marketplace which acts as an intermediary to facilitate transactions. The company lets anyone sell nearly anything using its platform. In addition to an affiliate program that lets anyone post-Amazon links and earn a commission on click-through sales, there is now a program which lets those affiliates build entire websites based on Amazon's platform.[126] Some other large e-commerce sellers use Amazon to sell their products in addition to selling them through their own websites. The sales are processed through Amazon .com
.com
and end up at individual sellers for processing and order fulfillment and Amazon leases space for these retailers. Small sellers of used and new goods go to Amazon Marketplace to offer goods at a fixed price.[127] Amazon also employs the use of drop shippers or meta sellers. These are members or entities that advertise goods on Amazon who order these goods direct from other competing websites but usually from other Amazon members. These meta sellers may have millions of products listed, have large transaction numbers and are grouped alongside other less prolific members giving them credibility as just someone who has been in business for a long time. Markup is anywhere from 50% to 100% and sometimes more, these sellers maintain that items are in stock when the opposite is true. As Amazon increases their dominance in the marketplace these drop shippers have become more and more commonplace in recent years.[citation needed] In November 2015, Amazon opened its first physical bookstore location. It is named Amazon Books
Amazon Books
and is located in University Village in Seattle. The store is 5,500 square feet and prices for all products match those on its website.[128] Amazon will open its tenth physical book store in 2017;[129] media speculation suggests Amazon plans to eventually roll out 300 to 400 bookstores around the country.[128] Amazon plans to open brick and mortar bookstores in Germany.[130] Revenue Amazon .com

book sales rank;[134][135] and works containing libel, facilitating dogfight, cockfight, or pedophile activities. In December 2011, Amazon faced a backlash from small businesses for running a one-day deal to promote its new Price Check app. Shoppers who used the app to check prices in a brick-and-mortar store were offered a 5% discount to purchase the same item from Amazon.[136] Companies like Groupon, eBay and Taap .it
.it
countered Amazon's promotion by offering $10 off from their products.[137][138] The company has also faced accusations of putting undue pressure on suppliers to maintain and extend its profitability. One effort to squeeze the most vulnerable book publishers was known within the company as the Gazelle Project, after Bezos suggested, according to Brad Stone, "that Amazon should approach these small publishers the way a cheetah would pursue a sickly gazelle."[104] In July 2014, the Federal Trade Commission
Federal Trade Commission
launched a lawsuit against the company alleging it was promoting in-app purchases to children, which were being transacted without parental consent.[139][140] Selling counterfeit items On October 16, 2016, Apple filed a trademark infringement case against Mobile Star LLC for selling counterfeit Apple products to Amazon. In the suit, Apple provided evidence that Amazon was selling these counterfeit Apple products and advertising them as genuine. Through purchasing, Apple was able to identify that nearly 90% of the Apple accessories sold and fulfilled by Amazon were counterfeit. Amazon was sourcing and selling items without properly determining if they are genuine. Mobile Star LLC settled with Apple for an undisclosed amount on April 27, 2017.[141] Sales and use taxes Main article: Amazon tax Amazon state sales tax collection policy has changed over the years since in the company's beginning it did not collect any sale taxes. In the U.S., state and local sales taxes are levied by state and local governments, not at the federal level. In most countries where Amazon operates, a sales tax or value added tax is uniform throughout the country, and Amazon is obliged to collect it from all customers. Proponents of forcing Amazon .com
.com
to collect sales tax—at least in states where it maintains a physical presence—argue the corporation wields an anti-competitive advantage over storefront businesses forced to collect sales tax.[142] Many U.S. states in the 21st century have passed online shopping sales tax laws designed to compel Amazon .com
.com
and other e-commerce retailers to collect state and local sales taxes from its customers. Amazon.com originally collected sales tax only from five states as of 2011, but as of April 2017, Amazon collects sales taxes from customers in all 45 states that have a state sales tax and in Washington, D.C.[143] Comments by President Trump In 2018, President Donald Trump
Donald Trump
repeatedly criticized Amazon's use of the United States
United States
Postal Service and pricing of its deliveries, stating, "I am right about Amazon costing the United States
United States
Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy," Trump tweeted. "Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne [sic] by the American Taxpayer."[144] Amazon's shares fell as much as 6 percent on Trump's comments although no actual facts were presented supporting the President's claims.[145][146] Poor working conditions Amazon has attracted widespread criticism for poor working conditions by both current employees, which refer to themselves as Amazonians,[147] and former employees,[148][149] as well as the media and politicians. In 2011, it was publicized that at the Breinigsville, Pennsylvania warehouse, workers had to carry out work in 100 °F (38 °C) heat, resulting in employees becoming extremely uncomfortable and suffering from dehydration and collapse. Loading-bay doors were not opened to allow in fresh air, due to the company's concerns over theft.[150] Amazon's initial response was to pay for an ambulance to sit outside on call to cart away overheated employees.[150] The company eventually installed air conditioning at the warehouse.[151] Some workers, "pickers", who travel the building with a trolley and a handheld scanner "picking" customer orders can walk up to 15 miles during their workday and if they fall behind on their targets, they can be reprimanded. The handheld scanners give real-time information to the employee on how fast or slowly they are working; the scanners also serve to allow Team Leads and Area Managers to track the specific locations of employees and how much "idle time" they gain when not working.[152][153] In a German television report broadcast in February 2013, journalists Diana Löbl and Peter Onneken conducted a covert investigation at the distribution center of Amazon in the town of Bad Hersfeld in the German state of Hessen. The report highlights the behavior of some of the security guards, themselves being employed by a third party company, who apparently either had a Neo-nazi background or deliberately dressed in Neo-Nazi apparel and who were intimidating foreign and temporary female workers at its distribution centers. The third party security company involved was delisted by Amazon as a business contact shortly after that report.[154][155][156][157][158] In March 2015, it was reported in The Verge
The Verge
that Amazon will be removing 18 months long non-compete clauses from its US employment contracts for hourly-paid workers, after criticism that it was acting unreasonably in preventing such employees from finding other work. Even short-term temporary workers have to sign contracts that prohibit them from working at any company where they would "directly or indirectly" support any good or service that competes with those they helped support at Amazon, for 18 months after leaving Amazon, even if they are fired or made redundant.[159][160] A substantial New York Times
New York Times
article published on August 16, 2015, described evidence of an intimidating and confrontational working culture for the company's office workers.[9] In an effort to boost employee morale, on November 2, 2015, Amazon announced that it would be extending 6 weeks of paid leave for new mothers and fathers. This change includes birth parents and adoptive parents and can be applied in conjunction with existing maternity leave and medical leave for new mothers.[161] Conflict of interest In 2013, Amazon secured a 600 million dollar contract with the CIA, which poses a potential conflict of interest involving the Bezos-owned Washington Post
Washington Post
and his newspaper's coverage of the CIA.[162] Kate Martin, director of the Center for National Security Studies, said, "It's a serious potential conflict of interest for a major newspaper like The Washington Post
Washington Post
to have a contractual relationship with the government and the most secret part of the government."[163] Lobbying Amazon lobbies the United States
United States
federal government and state governments on issues such as the enforcement of sales taxes on online sales, transportation safety, privacy and data protection and intellectual property. According to regulatory filings, Amazon.com focuses its lobbying on the United States
United States
Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Reserve. Amazon .com
.com
spent roughly $3.5 million, $5 million and $9.5 million on lobbying, in 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively.[164] Amazon .com
.com
was a corporate member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) until it dropped membership following protests at its shareholders' meeting on May 24, 2012.[165] In 2014, Amazon expanded its lobbying practices as it prepared to lobby the Federal Aviation Administration
Federal Aviation Administration
to approve its drone delivery program, hiring the Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld lobbying firm in June.[166] Amazon and its lobbyists have visited with Federal Aviation Administration

to explain its plans to deliver packages.[167] Notable businesses founded by former employees A number of companies have been started and founded by former Amazon employees.[168]
