Amazon sells its own diapers

Amazon sells its own diapers

Amazon will offer diapers and baby wipes from its own brand, Amazon Elements, to its Amazon Prime members. This means it has added yet another product to its own product range.

Transparency

Currently, Amazon is only selling diapers and baby wipes under its Amazon Elements name, but the brand's description ("our own line of everyday essentials") clearly shows that the online retailer has further plans to expand its product range.

 

Amazon is very transparent about the product range's origins: the description will show the country of origin, the ingredients or materials used and where they come from. It will even explain what certain ingredients do and why they are part of the product. This way, Amazon will explain a whole lot more than what is usually described in stores.

 

Meal delivery

The American company has also started its meal delivery service, Takeout & Delivery, even though it is only available in Seattle at this point. However, it is not unthinkable Amazon may expand the service beyond the borders of its home town if the pilot is considered a success.
