《Amazon’s Prime Day Vs. Alibaba’s Single’s Day: Are They Any Different?》（Forbes）
亚马逊的Prime Day Vs.阿里巴巴的双十一：他们有什么不同吗？(福布斯杂志)
- Scale: Each event is a large-scale shopping holiday built around high volume, deep discounts and thin margins.
- Multi-market: Amazon has added Australia, the Netherlands and Singapore to its list of participating countries. Alibaba has further integrated its Lazada acquisition to add Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines.
- O2O: Amazon will bring its Whole Foods subsidiary into Prime Day, while Alibaba has integrated its Intime department stores and Hema shops, allowing both platforms to reach consumers who are more comfortable with offline than online.
O2O：亚马逊将其Whole Foods子公司纳入Prime Day，而阿里巴巴已将其银泰百货和Hema商店整合在一起，从而使这两个平台能够覆盖那些比在线更适合离线的消费者。
- Size: Singles’ Day is much, much bigger. In 2017, Alibaba passed $25.3 billion in sales and Amazon hit $2.4 billion.
- Strategy: Singles’ Day is brand-focused, Prime Day is Amazon-focused. Tmall has no “ticket price” or paid membership. But Prime Day requires you to join Amazon Prime to participate. This reflects a difference in strategy: Tmall is trying to sell to the entire nation. Amazon is trying to only reach e-commerce shoppers.
策略：双十一以品牌为重点，Prime Day以亚马逊为重点。天猫没有门槛或付费会员资格。但Prime Day要求您加入Amazon Prime。这反映了战略上的差异：天猫正试图向整个国家出售。亚马逊正只接触电子商务购物者。
daohangshuLZ ：amazon uk prime delivery sucks…one-day delivery, it took 14 days….
Louis Parker ： America will says this as a threat to them again.Every non whites success and powerful is a threat to whites.
Mr BrightSide ： Why is everyone is so negative about the Chinese in here. I don’t see them starting war or topple governments.
Peter Jacobsen ： ‘Singles Day’ is not primarily due to the one-child policy. Rather, it is the same dynamic we see in the west: Young people get more educated; they focus on careers; they manage to support themselves. These things make them more picky about choosing partners. Thus, more people stay single for a longer time.
yelistener ： Nobody calls it “Singles Day” anymore. It has been called Double 11 day since 2-3 years ago. Granted, it came from the idea of singles buying stuff for themselves, but it’s not about that anymore because everyone (singles, couples, young, old) buys on 11.11. Now everyone just remembers it as the biggest discount online shopping day of the year.
没有人称之为“光棍节”。2 – 3年前被称为双十一。当然，它来源于单身狗想给自己买东西，但它不再是那个了，因为每个人（单身，夫妻，年轻人，老人）都在11.11购物。现在每个人都记得它是全年最大的网上购物折扣日。
ComradeTheBuilder ： so many money from fake products at alibaba….
Dark Night of the Soul ： Jack Ma is a great entrepreneur and AliBaba is a great company
watermelone ： We missed the train guys.
Mysteries And Thoughts ： Interesting ,damn Alibaba is taking over the world!
LegendLength ： It really is a great site. I used to build drones and ordered parts from about 20 different suppliers from ali. Prices with delivery were always at least half of the cost in the west. Don’t think I ever had a problem and I was just a small volume purchaser. Delivery was normally within a week.
Afendi Afendi ： chinese is good in making money. westerners good in innovation. work hard india!!!
olivekid100 ： So what day is singles day exactly? I forgot to listen after he said 17 billion.. Lol
Krish Sanghvi ： those are definitely fake figures
Rich Leed ： I usually avoid Amazon because their shipping rates are so ridiculous!
ytsui ： Over 70% of Alibaba’s orders are fake orders in Chinese mentioned as “刷单”, majority of the orders are fulfilled by merchants which means Alibaba has no action after the order placed(inventory, fulfill etc..) Who made this video has really poor knowledge background.
Iva Ip ： people stop being rude to china
Manik Kalore ： Looks like soon we will have to learn the Mandarin… American hegemony is at the mercy of dollar(international trade) once dollar collapsed, it will be end of the story.This is sad but true.
James Pharris ： Jack Ma…I some great ideas that will cause this already big day to become even BIGGER.
latprogram ： these are impressive statistics. I think this has to simply due to the fact there are more people living in China than in the USA. The question is how long is it going to take Amazon prime to catch up
Afghan Alam Khan Commando ： No matter how much USA try to isolate china stopping its sea ways, more its economy is growing.
