Amazon is working on selling cars from its website and with good reason.
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of going to a car dealership (sarcasm), you’ll understand the pressure tactics, the sleaziness of the sales people, the lack of personality, and, because they’re driven by quarterly sales goals, trying to make the sale with you only to forget your name after you sign your life away on the dotted line.
Well, all that is about to be disrupted when Amazon is able to sell cars though its website.
Imagine not having to deal with sleazy car salesmen anymore.
You did your research into the car you like, type it into the search bar, and get it delivered for free to your house from Amazon prime.
If you don’t like it, you have 30 days to return it and they will order the truck to come pick it up and also cover the cost of shipping and returns.
Sounds great, right?
However, is it Amazon that’s trying to develop its own in-house way to sell cars from Amazon or are third party developers going to do it?
I recently spoke to someone who, while she didn’t work at Amazon, was developing the website and software to be able to sell cars via the website and the app and was going to try and sell it to Amazon.
I haven’t followed up with her to see how successful she was with it, but shortly after talking with her, other car selling apps popped up that seemed better than hers.
So Amazon technically doesn’t have to develop its own car selling software, website, app etc. because there are already a few to choose from which it could takeover and roll into its plethora of Amazon Prime offerings.
You can already buy golf carts on amazon prime, it’s only a matter of time before you can buy your sports car there too.
