Problems with Amazon
#1. Clumsy appearance
Product presentation in Amazon is not up to the mark. The site looks crowdy. Amazon has a wide variety of products from the lower level to the higher level, but the appearance makes the consumers feel tough to select in the crowd.
#2. Messy search
Everyone use the search and filter option to select our needed product soon. When we search for Pendrive, it shows pens and the drives also, this is acceptable. When it is showing the products, which are nowhere related to the search is unacceptable. It is disturbing a lot.
As Amazon has unimaginable ranges of products, many people are gathering at least for a window shopping. It is making a lag in the speed.
Free delivery starts only from Rs. 500 and above purchases. Also, the packing is not neat. The layout and condition of the box will be looking bad. We cannot say it is a box, it pretends like a box.
Sometimes, the product inside is too small, but the package looks too big. It makes the consumer think whether to receive it or not and sometimes creating a confusion whether he/she ordered it!
The above problems are slightly demotivating the consumers, but no complaint about the quality of the product. Just refine your search and filter options to overcome the above.
