Amazon Launches Pilot to Test 3-D Printed Product
In December, EcommerceBytes took a look at Amazon.com's activities in the 3-D printing space and how 3-D printers could impact retail and e-commerce. Now comes news that Amazon has set up a new division selling 3-D printed products in partnership with five companies. The Cincinnati Business Courier broke the news yesterday about what it calls a new pilot program to sell 3-D printed products in four categories: toys, home accessories and decor items, jewelry, and fashion/tech accessories. Amazon has sold 3-D printers and supplies for some time, and third-party merchants are already listing 3-D printed objects on Amazon independently.
