Amazon and Google: bitter rivals?

They compete against each other. You would think they’d keep out of each other’s way.

Google even relaunched its shopping platform last year in order to better compete against Amazon.

But even so, the two companies have a surprisingly fruitful relationship.

A large proportion of Amazon’s traffic comes directly from Google searches.

No matter what kind of eCommerce business you run, consistent cash flow is critical to success. Without it, you can experience risks like running out of stock during key holidays, missing supplier payments or not being able to pay employee salaries. Not to mention losing out on opportunities to expand your business.

Many Amazon brands would benefit significantly from some extra liquid cash to help them to run their business more smoothly.

Here are five top benefits to having more working capital for your business from our friends at Payoneer.

1. Improve your inventory

Registering as an Amazon Brand Owner is now even easier, thanks to its new Brand Self Service Identification process. If you’re a brand-registered seller in the US, this means you can now self-identify as Brand Owner for your registered brands.

If you’re not already a registered Brand Owner on Amazon, there are heaps of benefits that make the exclusive program worthwhile — and not just for US Sellers. Amazon’s Brand Registry is open to Sellers on any Amazon marketplace. It helps you protect your brand, take ownership of your brand’s representation and increase your sales.
