A growing economy coupled with new applications and convenience of online shopping could provide a catalyst to businesses that sell merchandise through online channels.

Background

Admit it: shopping for that new bathrobe, pair of stilts, or above-ground pool from the comfort of your own couch is pretty hard to beat. Convenience, selection, and sometimes lower prices are all behind the expansion of online business. Ecommerce is expected to grow 13% to 62 billion in 2013, representing 8% of the total retail pie. What’s more, projections call for online retail to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9% through 2017. In the second quarter of 2013, e-commerce sales totaled 4.8 billion, up 18.5%, which represents the largest growth in any quarter since 2007.

The proliferation of tricked-out tablets and smarter smartphones means we can get off the couch, without stopping the shopping. And that could give the growth of online commerce even more legs.

    Amazon adds support for Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu in local Indian languages push ahead of Diwali

    More than seven years after Amazon began its e-commerce operations in India, and two years after its shopping service added support for Hindi, the most popular language in the country, the American giant is embracing more local languages to court hundreds of millions of new users. Amazon announced on Tuesday its website and apps now support Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu in a move that it said would help it reach an additional 200-300 million users in the country. Localization is one of the most crucial -- and popular -- steps for companies to expand their potential reach in India.

    Amazon Offers $500 Prime Bike, Encroaching on Peloton’s Turf

    (Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc. launched a “Prime Bike” on Tuesday, a bid to compete with an array of at-home exercise bikes that have become popular in the pandemic, such as those offered by Peloton Interactive Inc.The new EX-Prime Smart Connect Bike is available on the e-commerce giant’s website for $500, a steep discount to Peloton machines that cost well over $1,000. The Prime bike is only available to Amazon Prime subscribers and was developed through a partnership with Echelon Fitness. The machine comes with a free 30-day Echelon membership trial, which includes live exercise classes.Shares of Peloton fell as much as 6.7% on Tuesday, but recovered to be down about 2% in afternoon New York trading.Amazon often releases new hardware as a way to get its technology into consumers’ homes. The company sometimes uses a scatter-shot strategy, pushing out many different gadgets to see what works, including microwaves and clocks.This is not the first time Echelon has entered into a partnership to distribute its bikes. It also had a deal with Walmart Inc. for a similar model at $500. This is why KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst Edward Yruma isn’t too worried for Peloton.“Other than a few cosmetic changes, the $500 bike is almost identical to Echelon’s $500 bike at Walmart.com, which has been available at Walmart.com since March and hasn’t had any noticeable impact to Peloton’s growth,” Yruma wrote in a note to investors.(Updates with analyst comment in sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
