ChannelAdvisor March Same Store Sales Data:
It was another good month for Google with Google Shopping/Product Listing Ads showing strong growth at 41.8%, which seems to have come at the expense of eBay which was flat.

Scot has noticed very aggressive placement of PLAs and a number of experiments with new ad units, such as a new 12 pack PLA.

Amazon News:

  • Prime Now is coming to Web – Something we suggested should happen in Episode 18.
  • Amazon Adding External Payment Partner program
  • Amazon Acquires Image Analysis Startup Orbeus
  • 2015 Amazon Shareholder Letter is out (and is a must read).  This year, Amazon became the fastest company ever to reach $100 billion in annual sales.
