    The thing that got me was “you can’t compete with amazon” and “customers are cheap”…

    – Customers demand value (that’s different to being cheap)
    – Amazon used to be so awesome. Now it’s
    – Inaccurate listings
    – Lots of clone and duplicate products
    – Misleading vendors (I bought something from a vendor with UK in the name, they were in Hong-Kong and I only found out once they told me shipping would be 3 weeks)

    It’s easy to kick Amazon’s butt for experience on a small-scale; it’s just hard to match them on budget, NPD, and features.
