You might not think it’s possible but you can support small businesses on Amazon! Last year small to medium size businesses made more than 1.5B in sales and accounted for almost 60% of sales during Prime Day, and this year it’s a two day event.
Amazon has a section called Storefront, if you shop in this section you’ll find deals for kitchen items, office products, baby clothes, electronics, jewelry, and so much more, with results only coming from smaller businesses.
This does mean you’ll need to do a bit of digging around checking out the brand you’re buying from instead of mindlessly clicking. You may need to go to the company’s website and read up on its background.
But ultimately this way you can feel like you’re helping a small, independent shop when loading your virtual cart on Prime Day. It’s almost guilt-free shopping.
