Amazon Just Made an Unexpected Move That Could Crush FedEx and UPS - Entrepreneur

It's the company's latest play in connection with its massive shipping and logistics operations.

Amazon has already become the most dominant online retailer, and it's poised to take over the delivery space next. The ecommerce giant announced the launch of its Buy with Prime program on Thursday; the service provides third-party retailers access to the company's extensive shipping and fulfillment network, even for orders on non-Amazon sites.

Retailers using the service will have the option to attach the Prime icon to items on their website that are eligible for free two-day or next-day delivery. Additionally, Prime members will be able to use the payment and shipping information associated with their Amazon accounts to place an order. It's a major opportunity for Amazon to cash in, as sellers will pay various fees for payment processing, fulfillment, storage and more.

Until retailers realize Amazon is using their information to undercut them.

UPS has and still is helping Amazon to build up so they can crush us. As soon as Amazon made it known they was a competitor of UPS, UPS should of told them to go pound sand. This would of set Amazon back years. UPS taking the short term benefit will cost them a heavy price in the long term. I don’t think UPS was “getting the Big Picture“
