Amazon vs Walmart- Products Sold in March 2017

As of March 2017, Walmart has a total of 22 million products on sale and Amazon has 375 million products.

Walmart has only 5.8% of what Amazon has to offer.

Competition with Amazon

Walmart has seen a quantum leap with e-commerce sales picking up. With Walmart’s earnings in the fourth quarter seeming to be a definite blow to Amazon, they could soon be a great threat and exceed them. Walmart has an estimated 5,200 stores across US to create a larger impact on same-hour delivery services to compete with Amazon’s same-day shipping service.

 

While Walmart makes sure their customers get the best experience while shopping at home, they are not keeping up with Amazon when it comes to the addition of new products. Amazon is bringing in new items such as Alexa Skills to their product portfolio to bring in more buyers and widen their customer base.

Is this measurement for individual SKUs? At Amazon, you could have 10 different sellers (one of them being Amazon itself) selling the exact same item/SKU. Do you count that as 10 or 1? Or are you excluding smaller companies that use the Amazon platform for sales? Thanks.

    Hi Vince,
    Each ASIN would be considered one SKU – so in your example it would be 1 not 10.
    Thanks
