Amazon offers on-site professional installations with its new Selling Services initiative

Amazon is trialling a new marketplace for service providers, something it calls Selling Services, which wants to hook buyers up with professionals who can install, or perform services.



This will have shoppers buying a product that requires installation, like a wall-mounted TV, after which they'll be offered the opportunity to look at an approved list of local service providers. If you do find an installer that can do what you require, click the Add the Cart button and it'll be included with your purchase. The Amazon-approved installer will be covered by a money-back guarantee, with the e-commerce giant running a business background check for any and all service providers, and personal background checks on technicians.


Amazon will take 20% of the service fee on jobs worth up to $1000, while jobs over $1000 will see Amazon taking 15%. Background checks will cost $50 per business, and $40 per participating employee. Amazon is trialling Selling Services in over a dozen cities and surrounding areas across the United States.
