Walmart's main issue is their crappy website. This is the problem with most retailers today. I have distributors that have such poor search engines in them, that I end up going elsewhere due to frustration. Walmart has some of the same issues. Finding a specific product on a website can be an art. Their search engine needs to be category specific in order for customers to find the relevant products. Too many products in each master category can kill your business fast. Kind of like a restaurant with a 20 page menu.
Amazon pushes all their prime crap to the top of the page, drowning out the third party vendors. Amazon's biggest advantage is their system supports a point and click for returning customers. People have become lazy and are looking for the easiest and quickest way to shop. They sell the public that they offer the lowest prices, but we have found that if you are the only one on Amazon offering a product, that you can actually sell it for more then retail and they will buy it without checking.
