Kenshoo E-Commerce now supports Amazon sellers–giving them access to the leading tools for creating, managing, and optimizing Amazon advertising campaigns at scale–to boost sales and stand out in a crowded marketplace
The Amazon marketplace is hot. While Amazon’s overall e-commerce business was built on products purchased from vendors and sold by Amazon itself, it has grown through the entry of marketplace sellers—the third-party retailers who use the platform to sell their goods alongside Amazon’s own offerings. But success for Amazon sellers depends on a number of factors, including the ability to effectively advertise and catch consumers’ attention.
“Amazon provides an outstanding digital storefront for sellers to leverage, but it’s still up to the seller to present compelling offers and help their products find their niche,” said Oren Stern, Kenshoo’s General Manager of E-Commerce. “Amazon sellers need to find creative ways to differentiate themselves and connect with the right buyers. Winning with pricing alone is no longer an option.”

This is an enormous development for brands, as well as agencies that manage product advertising for both vendors and sellers, as they can now use Kenshoo E-Commerce across their entire portfolio.
Amplio Digital, a media agency specializing in advertising campaigns for Amazon sellers and vendors, has been using Kenshoo E-Commerce for their vendor clients to great effect. The agency is one of two Kenshoo clients to get early access to the Kenshoo E-Commerce solution for sellers.
“The advanced tools that Kenshoo E-Commerce offers have already allowed us to give our Amazon vendor clients powerful capabilities that aren’t available on the native platform,” said Sean Marder, Director of Amazon Media at Amplio Digital. “To be able to extend this kind of sophisticated campaign management to our seller clients is a huge win—both in terms of the potential results our seller clients will realize, as well as the insight and efficiencies we’ll gain by having a single, high-performance platform through which to run our entire book of business. We’re thrilled with what we’ve been able to accomplish so far.”
Of course, Amazon sellers who manage their own campaigns, as well as brands who operate as both vendors and sellers, can also leverage the Kenshoo E-Commerce solution’s distinct advantages, which include:
