Amazon for everything
It's yet another step in Amazon's plan to be your one-stop-shop for everything, no matter your needs.
Amazon's grocery business helps it to further leverage the value of its Amazon Prime service, doubling down on benefits for loyal customers. In the US, alongside its third-party products, Amazon's first-party exclusive own-brands sell everything from food and beverages to pet care, pet food, household essentials and beauty products.
And all of this enables Amazon to extract a form of payment in a currency that's just as valuable as your dollars – your data. As Amazon plugs the gaps in its wares, it makes its customers increasingly reliant on its services, obtains further data to mine and finds new ways to empty our pockets.
