Wish You Wood is a toy boutique located in the main shopping

strip of a resort town near Piney Lake. People who

own cabins near the lake or come to visit the local state

park enjoy browsing through the town’s stores, where they

pick up pottery, landscape paintings, and Wish You Wood’s

beautifully crafted wooden toys. For these shoppers, Wish

You Wood is more than a store; it is a destination they associate

with family and fun.

The store’s owners, Jim and Pam Klein, personally select

the toys from craftspeople and toymakers around the

world. They enjoy their regular customers but believe selling

mostly to vacationers has limited the company’s growth.

They decided that the lowest-cost way to expand would be

to sell toys online. However, after several years, they had to

admit that traffic to the store’s website was unimpressive.

Thanks to e-mail and Facebook reminders, they were luring

some of their loyal in-store shoppers to the site to make

off-season purchases, but few other people looking for toys

ever found Wish You Wood online.

Jim and Pam concluded that the next-best way to sell

online would be to partner with Amazon’s

Marketplace service lets other retailers sell products on

Amazon. The Kleins signed an agreement to list the store’s

most popular items with Amazon. For example, if a shopper

is searching for wooden dollhouses, Wish You Wood’s dollhouses

will be included in the search results. A customer

who chooses to buy from Wish You Wood places the order

right on Amazon’s website. Under Amazon’s participation

agreement, the listings must be honest and may not link to

Wish You Wood’s own website or invite phone calls from

customers. In exchange for giving the products exposure on

the site, Amazon charges a monthly fee plus a commission

on each sale.

Initially, Jim and Pam were thrilled about their decision

to partner with Amazon. They tracked each month’s

sales and compared them with in-store sales. In the first

five months, sales jumped 45 percent, mainly because

of sales on Amazon. Then, suddenly, sales of popular

toy train sets, which were particularly profitable, stopped

altogether. Puzzled, Jim visited Amazon to make sure the

train sets were still listed. To his surprise, he found that

the train set was there, at the usual price of $149, listed

right after the same set available directly from Amazon,

at $129. He and Pam concluded that shoppers were now

buying the product directly from Amazon. It appeared that

their store had helped Amazon identify a product consumers


The Kleins worried that they needed a new strategy.

If they matched Amazon’s price, they would lose most of

the profit on their most popular items. Wish You Wood was

too small of a business to negotiate better prices from its

suppliers. If the store didn’t match Amazon’s price, it would

continue to lose sales at the Amazon site. Jim and Pam wondered

whether they should pull out of Amazon altogether

or find a way to continue working with the partner that had

become a competitor. They also considered rethinking

which toys to offer on Amazon.
