EBay flags toy offering ahead of first Toys 'R' Us-less Christmas - Inside Retail

EBay Australia on Thursday released a list of its top toy trends for Christmas 2018, drawing on sales data and insights from in-house experts. The online marketplace also flagged a 20 per cent discount on select toys in its Christmas Frenzy sale this weekend, as consumers begin their holiday shopping in earnest.

As recent reports have made clear, November is now the biggest month in the retail calendar, thanks to the ever-earlier creep of retailers’ Christmas marketing campaign and major sales events, such as Singles Day (China’s online-only sales event on November 11), Click Frenzy (Australia’s online-only sales event on November 13) and Black Friday and Cyber Monday (omnichannel sales events imported from the US on November 23 and 26, respectively).

But the encroaching holiday season may not be the only reason eBay is so keen to highlight its toy offering. This year marks the first Christmas since Toys ‘R’ Us went out of business and left a giraffe-sized hole in the consumer spending pie up for grabs.

In the US, major retailers including Walmart and Target are setting aside more floor space for toys in hundreds of stores, according to The Wall Street Journal . But former Toys ‘R’ Us president Neil Friedman told the publication that competitors would not be able to capture all of the dollars that would have gone to the toy superstore, since “the other guys don’t plan the business to have inventory at the end of the year”.

The Wall Street Journal story suggested that retailers would focus on popular toys and well-known brands. Indeed, that dynamic is already playing out, with eBay singling out best-sellers, such as last year’s hit product, LOL Surprise! Bigger Surprise!

This focus is also apparent in the first-ever printed holiday shopping catalog from Amazon, “A Holiday of Play”, which began mailing to millions of customers in the US this week, as first reported by CNBC .

IR asked Amazon Australia whether it plans to offer the toy catalog in Australia, but had not received a reply at the time of this writing.

Toy shopping in Australia

Australian retailers have been less forthcoming about their ambitions to capture Toys ‘R’ Us’s share of the market. According to Field Agent’s survey of 300 local families in December 2017, 40 per cent of parents and kids said that Kmart was the best place to shop for and buy toys, followed by Big W (23 per cent), Target (15 per cent) and Toys ‘R’ Us (11 per cent).

When it comes to online, eBay is the preferred choice for toy shopping (21 per cent), followed by Target (17 per cent).

These findings put the ultimate impact of Toys ‘R’ Us’s absence into perspective. Both Big W and Target, when asked, said they were more focused on getting their own product mix right.

“In anticipation of a successful Christmas and summer trading period we do expand our product offerings. Especially in those Christmas seasonal items like Christmas trees, decorations, as well as toys and entertainment for the kids,” Kristen Linders, general manager of marketing at Big W, said.

Target’s chief marketing officer Kenton Elliott agreed that having the right items available and in stock was the retailer’s core focus.

“I think that the markets always changing, so it’s important for us to evolve our range, and the offer that we’ve got, and I know that we’ve got some great exclusive gifts across the whole of the store that you can only get at Target,” Elliott said.

“For us it’s about competing and focusing on what we do, more than worrying about what the competitors are doing.”

Crypterium to Allow Its Users to Shop on eBay, Refill PayPal and Bank Accounts With Cryptocurrencies - newsBTC

In recent months, reports have emerged stating that PayPal, the leading online payments provider may be making a move in favor of cryptocurrencies. This has been echoed by PayPal’s previous business companion eBay. Yet, there seems to be an alternative in the market. Blockchain-based startup Crypterium led by former Visa UK CEO Marc O’Brien enables its users to send crypto directly to bank accounts. Crypto users can now top up their PayPal account or send a payment to their bank account, as well as shop with Bitcoin wherever bank transfers are accepted as a payment method.

Despite Bitcoin and other virtual currencies being billed as currencies, they are still perceived more as investment assets, and accepted by a very limited number of outlets. A blockchain-based startup, Crypterium changes that by enabling its users to transfer crypto directly to bank accounts opening the door to many new use cases. Wherever IBAN bank transfers are accepted as a method of payment, you can now pay with cryptocurrencies through the Crypterium App.

“Businesses are still reluctant to accept cryptocurrency. It doesn’t matter what the value of Bitcoin is, you simply couldn’t use it to pay your mortgage, or buy something on eBay, or pay your student loans. That’s something we’re trying to overcome” says Marc O’Brien CEO of Crypterium. “With our app, users can pay with crypto for a variety of goods and services, replenish their PayPal wallets or spend their coins at any platforms that accept bank transfers as a payment method” – he adds.

This new Crypterium feature allows you to use crypto to pay for a diverse range of bills and loans. These include your mortgage payments, loan repayments, utility bills, taxes, and supplier payments. Once you send crypto, the bank or merchant will receive funds in the currency of their choice. Crypterium takes care of all the conversions.

Bringing crypto payments mainstream

“Cryptocurrencies will become the next mainstream payment solution within the next decade” , a study from the Imperial College of London argues. “In 5 years, buying your cup of coffee with Bitcoin and shopping abroad with your favorite coins and tokens will be a commonplace” – O’Brien believes, and it is this belief that drives Crypterium to continue to break down barriers.

“Despite the growing interest towards crypto, there have always been a lot of unknowns holding regular people from using it. For example, high transaction fees, complex and sometimes suspicious exchanges, lack of use cases… the list goes on and on,” he explains. “Crypterium is addressing those unknowns and is moving forward to bring cryptocurrencies to the masses by developing simple but effective crypto solutions for everyday life”.

The company is partnering with banks to issue cards, (both virtual and physical) that will be linked to users’ cryptocurrency accounts. Crypterium’s goal is to make it easy to pay with cryptocurrencies in everyday situations at any of the world’s 42 million NFC terminals by scanning QR codes or doing an online transaction. While the card solution is estimated to go live at the beginning of 2019, the app already allows its users to top up their mobile phones with crypto, buy Steam and Skype vouchers and make direct IBAN payments. “ Making people confident they can use bitcoin, ether and other popular currencies across millions of payment terminals globally is a necessary step for crypto to become the ‘new money’” O’Brien sums up.

A second Amazon 4-star shop set to open in Colorado - Tamebay

Amazon says it will be opening its second 4-star outlet in the United States. The first one opened for business in Berkeley, California, as we reported here , and the new and second 4-star store will be located in Park Meadows mall in Lone Tree, Colorado, and that’s just outside of Denver.

The 4-star shop concept is original. Rather than product buyers and curators choosing what people should buy, and essentially shaping tastes, the outlet will only sell goods that have been rated 4-star and above on the marketplace. In particular the shop concentrates on electronic goods, fashion items and entertainment media. Inside the shop itself, goods are actually displayed alongside genuine reviews from the Amazon website.

As they say of the new endeavour:

The 4-star concept from Amazon is interesting for three key reasons. The first is that it further demonstrates that Amazon isn’t scared to increasingly develop its bricks and mortar physical network. It reinforces what we know: Amazon isn’t really just an online store. It is in fulfilment and advertising and offline retail too. It’s important to constantly reassess what the gargantuan company based in Seattle is focussed on.

Secondly, 4-star unites what Amazon does online with its activities on the marketplace and brings customers into the heart of that by essentially letting the community decide what’s on offer.

But third, and doubtlessly most importantly, the new shops are a show of how confident Amazon is to try new and innovative ideas. That is in part a reflection of their deep and voluminous pockets but it also shows a verve for experimentation that has hitherto often served the company well.

Is it me or do Amazon seem to “launch” something every day?

It’s becoming ridiculous the Amazon news section feels like I’m being spammed by Amazon just reading the stuff. It’s just the same boring shhht every day.

Amazon this, Amazon that. I think we need a new definition of the word.

YES AMAZON, we know you’re planning on taking over every possible industry and placing the word “Amazon” in front of every imaginable product or service that ever existed, including those that don’t exist YET!

Atleast split your damn company up and call each bit something “other than Amazon” so it doesn’t feel like we’re being completely invaded and taken over by Amazon robots please.
