    SEATTLE - Speculation that Amazon.com may soon start selling apparel has resurfaced.
    The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter, reported on its online site last night that the Seattle-based Internet retailer was developing an online apparel store in partnership with Nordstrom, Gap, Sears Roebuck and Lands' End that would open in time for holiday shopping.

    Reports of such an endeavor first surfaced in July, when Amazon posted on its Web site's job page an opening for a "Director, Apparel."

    Amazon wouldn't comment on the reports then, and still wasn't commenting in yesterday's Journal report.

    In a conference call last week with Wall Street analysts, The Journal reported, Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said Amazon soon would begin "previewing a brand-new store that we've been working on for almost a year."

    They've reported on CNBC that the the deal is done.

    Hmmmmmmm, Nordstrom, Gap and Old Navy are all affiliated with parasites in particular the one amazon themselves recently dropped. It ought to be interesting to see how the relationships progress and if they are able to influence other members regarding co-partner status with their parasite affiliations.

    They are partners with office depot too who falls into this precarious situation too.

    Most of the companies they're partnering with provide zero day cookies and I don't promote them all all or only in small specific areas so I sure don't feel threatened by this move.

    You think they'll like the parasites diverting commissions from their site? I can only hope they will help pursure legal action as any deals and the compliance of them would be very hard to monitor and or detect for violations.

    This might just be a good thing [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img].

    Bad thing is that they will reportedly only pay 2.5% on sales from those stores, much less than linking directly to the stores themselves.

    Yes, they probably will only pay 2.5%, but the sales do count towards your numbers moving up to the next level of the amazon-product tier. So, the more you sell, the more you make on the amazon products you promote (if you promote them).

    Have you looked at their search drop-down menu lately. They have: Sci. Supplies (Beta), Med. Supplies (Beta), Indus. Supplies (Beta), Car Parts (Beta), Home Furnishings (Beta), Lifestyles (Beta), Pet Toys (Beta), and Arts & Hobbies (Beta). Interesting, that there is no Beta for Clothing yet.
