Amazon vs Walmart- Product Sold in October 2017

As of October 2017, Walmart has a total of 29 million products on sale while Amazon has a total of 606 million products up for sale.

That’s only 4.9% of what Amazon has to offer. 



Significant Changes Since Last Month

Walmart’s product portfolio has decreased by half a million products, a pretty small number when looking at Walmarts high earnings this year.

Walmart beat on their earnings in their Q2 reports, with an increase of 60% online sales! Walmart’s total sales climbed 2.1 percent from a year ago, to $123.36 billion. America’s top brick and mortar retail have been quietly growing its online advertising business – another sign of growth for the company’s e-commerce business.

While Walmart is making progress in online sales, Amazon is trying to grow bigger in brick-and-mortar retailing.
