July 2016 SSS Clarification

August 14, 2016

ChannelAdvisor Scot Wingo By Scot Wingo
Some readers are seeking additional clarification around our Amazon SSS data from our July SSS post (here).  As mentioned in our previous blog post, we believe a significant increase in competition amongst sellers (including an influx of new sellers) has caused a recent deceleration in our Amazon SSS data, a deceleration that was NOT reflected in Amazon’s most recently-reported total EGM GMV growth.
We want to clarify that our total Amazon GMV (not SSS) growth continued to be comparable to Amazon’s most-recently reported EGM GMV growth.
