Amazon Articles

Amazon Articles – Amazon is one of the Most Popular Stores within the U.S. as well as other countries. In Sept. 4, 2018, Inc. (AMZN) became only the second-ever company to join the $1 trillion market capitalization club, when its share price crossed the $2,050.27 threshold.1 This comes just over a month after Apple (AAPL) hit the $1 trillion mark in August of that year.

Amazon had its initial public offering (IPO) on May 15, 1997, trading at $18 per share.3 On Sept. 4, 2018, $1,000 worth of Amazon stock purchased at its IPO price would have been worth over $1.1 million. Given its growth, most people know what Amazon does, but they may not know some fun facts.

In the early stages of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, his then-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, and Amazon’s first employee, Shel Kaphan, held their meetings inside their local Barnes and Noble. Before founder Jeff Bezos landed on “Amazon” as the name of the e-commerce giant, he had other names he kicked around, such as “Cadabra” (as in “Abracadabra”) and “Relentless.”

However, his lawyer convinced him that “Cadabra” did not sound magical at all. Rather, “Cadabra” sounded too similar to “cadaver.” Although “Relentless” did not make the cut to be the name of the company, Jeff Bezos liked the name enough to buy the domain name, and now the website; redirects to the homepage.

Amazon Launched as an Auction Site

In Amazon’s early stages as a public company, it launched an auction site to compete with its competitors in the e-commerce space.5 The day Amazon launched the auction site in 1999, its shares soared over 8%.

Amazon Flow was an augmented reality phone app that could identify millions of products from tissue boxes to book covers. With Amazon Flow, users didn’t have to memorize their shopping lists as the app allowed them to take pictures on their phones.

6. Amazon Has Convenience Stores With No Checkout

Amazon Go, a high-tech supermarket, allows shoppers to buy groceries without ever having to wait in line for a cashier. Amazon Go stores are equipped with hundreds of cameras that utilize a similar type of technology that self-driving cars use. This technology keeps a virtual shopping cart that allows customers to just walk out when they are done shopping. A bill is automatically sent to their Amazon account.

Amazon is developing a futuristic delivery system, Prime Air, which would let Amazon deliver packages to customers within 30 minutes using small drones. The service is being developed for the U.S. and other countries.

9. A Bell Used to Ring

When Amazon first started, they rang a bell every time a customer made a purchase. “We had, at the time, a little bell that would ring every time a book was ordered, so we’d all be working and the bell would ring, and it would go Ding! and we’d go, ‘Yay! We sold a book!’” says former Amazon employee Jonathan Kochmer.

10. Over One and a Quarter Million Employees

Amazon employed 1.271 million people as of the end of 2020 across the globe, more than Google, Facebook (now Meta), and Alibaba combined. It managed to grow employee count by 51% year-over-year at the end of the second quarter.
