Alibaba and Amazon Enter Unusual Partnership
We knew it was coming. We didn't know where, when, how, or why, but we knew Alibaba, the largest and most profitable e-commerce company in the world, and Amazon, the second largest, would inevitably come into direct contact with each other. And so it has come to pass. Amazon, a company waging a losing battle to compete head to head with Alibaba in China, has seemingly declared "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em".
Today the Seattle based "Everything Store" announced that it opened a consumer product presence on Alibaba's flagship business-to-consumer e-commerce platform, T-Mall.
