    E-commerce is a tricky industry and Amazon just managing to be a behemoth. Amazon is selling anything on their platform from electronics to books to household appliances to apparels and so on. Amazon is one of the trustworthy online stores among a bunch of companies out there. They also offer huge discounts on products that cost less than they do elsewhere. They run lots of promotions, hot deals from time to time, but the tricky thing is, they list a product with a huge discount with a limited time period that makes us buy, but they always have same price or even below.

    Shopping on these platforms may be awkward, but thankfully, there are several tools to counteract them. Check Camelcamelcamel and Fakespot before buying things on Amazon and other online shopping sites.
