随着运费和人工成本的增加,对于像亚马逊这样拥有数百万销售人员的电子商务公司来说,做生意的成本也在增加。

Porters Five Forces-SBU: LCC-Europe
Threat of Entry

Amazon should also pay an appropriate attention to this aspect. 
Threat of Substitutes

Buyer Power 
• With the development of e-commerce, consumers have more alternative purchase ways and shopping sites, because of this, the price war in e-commerce market is so intense. At present, many people still choose to go shopping in traditional stores. It is necessary to increase market share with lower prices and improved service quality to attract more consumers.

Winning Strategy: Option 1
Description of Winning Strategy
In the long run, the above three strategy options are able to contribute to the improvement of Amazon's competitiveness, but the winning strategy is Option 1. Because the online shopping quota and frequency of European consumers are still relatively low when they are compared with that of consumers of countries of the rest of the world, their online shopping habits have not been strengthened. And in the Option1, acquisition of BuyVIP.com will help Amazon to provide a better consumer experience to other consumers, making the consumption habits of European consumers be strengthened, which is important for the development of Amazon. And considering Option 3, in cooperation with the computer vision technology team does help to promote the UAV delivery plan, but the current European governments’ ban on the UAV delivery may not be relaxed within a short period of time. In terms of Option 5, Amazon’s entering the online book sales segment has limited effect on improving the overall income of Amazon in Europe.
BuyVIP was founded in 2005 and it was a Spanish website that sells branded products of the fashion and lifestyle industry, it evolves into a membership website that offers up to 70% discount for members and covers all aspects of life. It has more than 600 million members, Amazon is through the acquisition of BuyVIP. com to quickly enter the European e-commerce industry and be recognized by consumers.
BuyVIP. com deals with online shopping service, it provides services related to all aspects of online shopping, such as: discounts, product design, recommendation, etc., on the one hand its business can give consumers a better consumption experience, on the other hand, its business will help eliminate consumers’ doubts for fake and shoddy online shopping goods, poor after-sales service. BuyVIP. Com is very helpful to help European consumers to form online shopping habits.
After Amazon's acquisition of BuyVIP.com, it should invest money to increase the influence of BuyVIP.com in Europe, especially promoting it to the European markets outside Britain, France and German, in which there is a still small size of the electricity market, but there is a large population and great development potential, there is the need of BuyVIP.com to help consumers there to form online shopping habits. In addition, Amazon should pay attention to the training for BuyVIP.com personnel, according to the habits of European consumers to optimize the content and mode of service to ensure that BuyVIP.com can provide a better service experience for European consumers to help them form an online purchasing experience.

Option Risk Vs return Stakeholder reaction Accept/reject
1 Acquisition of the European online shopping service website BuyVIP.com. BuyVIP is headquartered in Spain and currently it has more than 6 million subscribers.

Competitors: protest of various channels may trigger investigation by local legal departments.
Reject
5 Acquisition of the British online Bookstore: The Book Depository. The deal allows Amazon to successfully enter online book selling. The risk is that consumers' demand for online book purchases is reduced. Shareholders: they may be doubts about the benefits of the acquisition.
