Interesting, but many ventures where "the customer needs to learn" end up failing. Consumers like to have their needs met, not be told that they have other needs.

I finally got invited to Jet.com beta today.
Their prices blow amazons prices outta the water.
Every listing I searched has a "competitive price" which after some research I found out is always amazons price (I checked a bunch of listings), and then there's Jets price which is always about 10-15% cheaper. Jet actually lowers their price to a certain discount relative to amazons price. I watched an item go from 300 to 282 as amazons price went lower.

Chrome books, every last one is $30-50 cheaper. iPods, iPads, etc.
On top of that, they bundle on additional savings if you buy more items or different items.

I'm telling you folks, I don't know if Jet.com will be the next big thing, but we're entering the golden age of cutthroat Internet pricing and I will enjoy every second of it. I can't wait for Amazons response!

That cycle can happen very quickly especially with all the software nowadays that synchronize listings from one marketplace to the next.

I don't think so based on how their model works.
A lot of the prices are sustainable as long as they are comfortable forgoing on commissions.
They currently are subsidizing prices of retailers by about 10% to stay competitive, but they are charging those same retailers 15% to sell on the platform.

Seems sustainable to me.

1. It's still exclusively for invited users, and it feels good to be past the velvet ropes.
2. As mentioned, saving money, as everything is cheaper. Smart cart makes everything additionally cheaper. And other ways to save even more on top of that.
3. Free and fast shipping and it costs less  than Prime.
4. Its cheaper than shopping locally, you feel comfortable making your entire grocery order online.
5. There also some glitches on the site that can still be exploited.

IME not everything is cheaper. Also you need to spend $35 for free shipping.

IME everything is cheaper. Don't take my word for it, there's a study showing over 94% of items are cheaper than Amazon. And that Jet is on average 27% cheaper than Amazon. http://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-DGB-41687

Ever see the words "competitive price" and under it, Jet member price? The competitive price is always Amazon IME, and always more expensive. And if you're taking smart cart into the equation, it blows it out of the water.

And Amazon has the same $35 requirement for free shipping, so I'm not sure why it's any better in that regard. In fact, it costs $99 year to activate that free shipping, so Jet is cheaper there too.

You're talking about specific cases, where it's free, but don't pretend like Amazon is always free shipping or that the shipping isn't usually priced in. Remember, jet is also made up of third party sellers, so you aren't comparing apples to apples.

IME the amount of products that I wanted, that they didn't stock, is enough to turn me off for a few years from retrying them.

That's ridiculous. They're still in private beta with a few thousand users, and they still have a weak product selection.
They will have a lot more items in stock by the time they publicly launch.
And once they do launch publicly, a lot more software companies will be scrambling to offer merchants inventory syncing software for Jet. Within a month, they can increase their product election ten-fold.

But I guess you are allergic to saving money. Because whatever high end item they DO sell right now, you will be saving at least 10-20%, which can easily add up to $30-$100 on many items.

In the beginning there were a lot of price mistakes, and they did honor almost everything. ;D ;D ;D ;D

2 days ago i found a massive price mistake, i didn't buy it because i was scared that they'll close my account like they did to my friend last week when he bought 3 of the same orders, they told him that in their terms it says that you are not allowed to buy to re-sell!!!

After having access already for quite a while and made several orders, i must say Jet.com is cheaper in almost everything!!!

But the minimum $35 for free shipping sucks!!! i hope they'll change it soon??? ???

I'll give em a day to figure it out and send ups to my house before doing a charge back. Shame I didn't use AMEX.

Never mind that their main competition has had 20 years to tweak and improve their service; you expect a perfect experience before they launch.

Once they publicly launch, criticize them all you want.
Until then, either give them feedback or simply don't shop there.

I don't see a reason not to shop with Jet, they are about 15% cheaper than Amazon on most products, they offer FREE return which Amazon doesn't (unless you wanna risk your account closed), they ship from trusted resellers like home depot, B&H, Office Depot etc. etc, I ordered something Friday, I had it delivered Tuesday (same speed as Amazon prime), taking advantage of price mistakes won't work with them since they are still in Beta they have a lot of listings that are incorrect (like this Bosch mixer (https://jet.com/Bosch-Universal-Plus-Kitchen-Machine-Mixer) as you see in the picture it's not a mixer but a blender, the picture is already updated, this was sold at $96 when the picture was a mixer, whoever ordered got a blender) so there's no point of taking advantage of price mistakes

So you have a comments about a negative point for Amazon, to say with confidence that Jet won't do that sounds foolish to me. How could anyone predict what they will be before they even launch.

Many other companies do it as well btw.

In fact people have already been shut down by Jet for ordering multiple price mistake items (never heard Amazon do that) so I'd say you are dead wrong to make a point like that.

What's that have to do with doing too many returns?

You can save a couple dollars for waiving the right to return, that doesn't mean you are paying extra to do unlimited returns. It's a bad deduction if you stink that's what it implies?

If they ever gain any traction, Amazon will squash them like the bug they are.

You sound like the guy 15 years ago saying that big retailers like Walmart and Target will crush Amazon like the bug they are.

A wise person would understand that there is currently monumental flaws in the current state of online retail, just like there was monumental flaws with our taxi system a few years ago (uber), just like there was monumental flaws with the vacation lodge market (Airbnb), and just like there was monumental flaws with SMS (what's app). And on and on.

How about everyday prices that crush Amazons and everyone else's prices?

You seem to be a negative Nancy about Jet which makes me question how much the affiliates from Amazon affects your outlook.

They need to change a LOT, in order to get onto the right track.

Start naming things?
Customer service has already improved a lot.
Product selection is a non-issue until they launch.

Let's hear A LOT of negativity.

A wise person would also understand that a big talking startup is not a guaranteed solution to the "monumental flaws".

Amazon is already operating on razor-thin margins. Even with the $99 prime fee that I pay each year, I fail to see how they make any money.

Because Amazon flushes away tons of income on failing billion dollar projects that have nothing to do with e-commerce.

Prime Video being the biggest money pit, then the Fire phone, AWS and so on.
If they just focused on their original core strengths they would be a lot more profitable today.

I have read a lot more than anyone here about the technology and the system that jet has put into place, and have tested it out hands on. As someone that sells online, I truly believe it will be successful unless they really screw up big time.

I'm not sure what you are talking about. I was referring to tangible goods that I buy from Amazon. After factoring in the S&S price plus the free two-day shipping (esp. Sunday shipping), I can't see where they are making any significant profit.

I don't see how prices can get any cheaper than they already are.

First of all Amazon prices as a whole aren't that cheap.

Now, if shipping from a nearby warehouse, even economy shipping will get there next day most of the time. And if not, Amazon still gets the best rates for shipping and they are dirt cheap.

Now if it's 3rd party fulfilled, Amazon is usually making a 15% referral fee which costs them nothing but the cost of the software infrastructure. And then of its FBA, amazon makes money on the fulfillment services they provide. And so on.

Happens to be that when I priced them on specific items they came in pretty much the same price then amazon, but stupid to judge before they actually open the doors,
Let's wait and see and time will tell
P.s. In my opinion customer service today is crutual for a business, it's extreme important and people will spend the extra penny to know that customer service has their back or the company stands behind their name, therefore I hope jet will follow on amazon and have awesome customer service too

It's a new delivery service that has woefully been rolled out against customers wishes.

They haven't delivered billions of orders, so the complaint rate is very high and extremely embarrassing.

AMZL delivery service should still be in the alpha phase of testing.
It also should be opt-in only at this point AND they should be PAYING their customers to test and give feedback to fine tune the service before it goes live.

Instead, customers are treated like a statistic. 2 billion orders a year, this delivery service with only affect a few million orders, sure why not. Let the small % of customer affected by this crappy service jump in a lake.

And I hate when people that bash things I like for no reason.

Obviously they will need some adjustments (they didn't even launch yet!), but after ignoring my request to document some bad things about the site, I will assume your silence translates as complaints about petty, insignificant issues.

You guys are bashing Jet for nothing, they are going to bring us the best prices we ever thought of, they are drop shippers and their lower level costumer service don't understand the concept of it so well and how to deal with returns, it is very confusing for all of us, I didn't understand it fully yet, but again they are still in Beta and for that reason, they have to train their staff on how to deal with the system ,and whoever want's their system to succeed should send them feedback to feedback@jet.com and enjoy, but whoever don't want that (maybe some mods here) should just continue to bash them and try to make sure nothing comes out of there, again I would not trust them with shipping speed yet, but I'll trust them that i'll get my item if the price and everything makes sense (10-15% lower)

Truthfully if you put all your commission from Amazon on a side and you think about your own pocket as a costumer that buys things when you need them and not when Amazon or whoever it is decides to make deal on them, wouldn't you wanna save some money on your day to day purchases?

Frankly, I don't remember attacking anyone until I was (hypocritically) called out for having financial interests in Jet. I don't have any.

I think the bottom line is the onus is on jet to prove they can compete not the other way around.

From the posts of SG and you it sounds like jet already proved themselves. (Statements like Amazon stinks because they ban people for too many returns, and a failed shipping service does not prove that jet is better, it shows amazon has flaws and MAYBE jet will be better in some aspects of the business. Side point to our previous discussion I usually like late shipments from Amazon because I get a $10+ each time.)

This simply is not the case.

You guys are bashing Jet for nothing, they are going to bring us the best prices we ever thought of, they are drop shippers and their lower level costumer service don't understand the concept of it so well and how to deal with returns, it is very confusing for all of us, I didn't understand it fully yet, but again they are still in Beta and for that reason, they have to train their staff on how to deal with the system ,and whoever want's their system to succeed should send them feedback to feedback@jet.com and enjoy, but whoever don't want that (maybe some mods here) should just continue to bash them and try to make sure nothing comes out of there, again I would not trust them with shipping speed yet, but I'll trust them that i'll get my item if the price and everything makes sense (10-15% lower)
All I can say in absolute honesty I have zero bias in either direction. I haven't even really checked out jet yet. I glanced on their site for a few minutes(had an invite), and never ordered anything yet. Just by reading through this thread both yourself and yuneeq seemed to be overly defending them. The people bashing them seemed to have had legitimate issues.

No I do not think you need to apologize for anything. But as an outsider I can see that both ways it is a very biased argument. You each obviously care (a lot) to defend or attack. IMO you did more than just share a negative experience. And bringing up that Amazon deals are cheaper is silly,when the argument is about regularly priced items (it us famous that Amazon will sell things at a significant loss to price out competition, and while when they do this it is great for the consumer, it can not be used as an example of how cheap they are.

No, I shared my own negative experience and got bashed for it as obviously having to do with a bias, as if I can't bash anyone that I don't have a business relationship with.

Should I tell you something Dan ordered a laptop for $100 he thought he'd make $600, at the end he got a monitor, this was in the first days of their beta, I personally know someone who got $25 JetCash for such an incident "recently" which means they are getting better,
Personal experience: On the third day of their beta (May 2) i found a tablet that would normally cost $750.00 at just $6.65 I ordered 5 of it (that's all they had listed), the real product almost shipped (I know that) but at the end they caught on it an canceled my order.

So you agree that even though you had a bad experience and were not wowed by your first experience, there still is a chance that this will turn out to be a success?
And do you agree that the competition will be positive for both buyers and sellers if successful?

I don't care about the Jet Cash/compensation. But when I get the wrong item the answer on the phone should be oops, let me fix that.

Post by: yuneeq on July 08, 2015, 03:25:02 PM
I think the bottom line is the onus is on jet to prove they can compete not the other way around.

From the posts of SG and you it sounds like jet already proved themselves. (Statements like Amazon stinks because they ban people for too many returns, and a failed shipping service does not prove that jet is better, it shows amazon has flaws and MAYBE jet will be better in some aspects of the business.)

This simply is not the case.

That being said I imagine jet will be barred from ddf soon due to the T&C here.

I agree they will still have to prove themselves, and believe they will do so.
I gave jet feedback before about the customer service and a few other things that could be improved, and they responded explaining how they will be fixing these issues.

Waiving returns is a Jet innovation, and the customer service for this feature hasn't been fine tuned yet. The CS agents were trained to charge for these returns and they didn't anticipate the issues.

Though 2 friends just told me they waived returns on a wrongly shipped item, and got to keep the item valued over $100, and another reported receiving $25 credit.
 
I don't understand how Jet is against the T&Cs here, mind explaining?

You guys are both forgetting that there are decent discounts both for buying a few and for adding other things to the cart. Jet is incentivizing customers to think differently when they shop, so even if a price for 1 unit is the same on Amazon you will always have nice savings if you build a cart.

It means you're willing to forgo free returns for a small discount when purchasing.

For those that have had a bad experience, keep in mind that a Beta is meant to test and improve the system, NOT to prove themselves to be the better then a well established and polished business.

Before a business launches there obviously is a lot of work and training that has to be done, especially a business of this magnitude. If you can't handle being a Beta tester, AKA their Guinea Pig, don't bother shopping from them until they actually launch. The point is that they are testing their system, staff, policies, & website. If you send them feedback they can learn what they need to fix. If you rant online about your negative experiences without notifying them directly, you can't expect them to see it and learn from it. :-\

Dan - you clearly don't understand Jet's business model and value proposition.  Everything I have read that you have posted makes you sound desperate to trash Jet.  As i think others may have pointed out, comparing a basket of goods is the way you will see huge savings.  There is a reason why free shipping has a $35 minimum...Jet is trying to teach people to shop smarter and more efficiently.  It is not efficient to place 5 different orders per week or ship a bunch of items separately, nor is it efficient to ship items across the country when they may be located in a warehouse nearby....all of which Amazon does and encourages

I like how you find products that are $34 and compare those to Amazon.  Why don't you look at the numerous articles online comparing pricing that show baskets of items being 30%+ cheaper on Jet?  I have been ordering off of Jet for a few months now and whenever I do I make a list of things I need to get.....yes, if there is some $15 item I need in 2 days I will use Amazon Prime.  So far my savings on Jet are close to $300, which more than pays for a $50 membership.

Lastly, I have made purchases through JetAnywhere at places that I regularly shop at like J.Crew, Luluemon, etc and earned over $155 in JetCash.  This is free money that I can spend on stuff that I would otherwise be paying for on Amazon. Explain to me how that isn't saving me money????

The 1 year membership codes that Jet gives out aren't useless even if you already have a Jet account.
They add a free year on the existing membership.

These codes add a free year on existing membership, so not sure why someone would give away unless they're not using it (which they have no reason not to).
I asked because there have been 1 year membership codes offered on this thread. I was not quick enough to get one. If you did not want to share a code with me then you should have just ignored my post.

No offense to you, but I'd rather people know what the codes are worth before they decide to give them away.
This is a public forum and I can write what I deem helpful to other users.
If you think otherwise, report my post to the mods.

P.s. I updated my previous post to make sure it ignores you, hope that makes you happy :)

I gave out a few of the 1 year codes to random people before I realized

On jet you can buy very cheap toilet paper, paper towels, very cheap cereal, tissues, baby formula is highly discounted, diapers, baby wipes, detergents, soaps, and etc.

Buy a combination of those essentials in the same order, and sometimes buy multiples of the same item and you will be saving significant money compared to any other website or even grocery store.

1)Agreed 1000% for basic items and day to day products jet.com will usually be cheaper.

2) jet.com has so much less c**p to sort thru. They have what you want and dont try to sell you what you'll never need.

3) Thier layout is very basic and easy on your eyes. Always quick to find what I want.

4) Smartcart is the greatest thing since sliced bread!

In summary if your going to buy a washer machine your better off playing with CC somewhere else, but if your ordering things you need all the time jet.com definitely has me!

We've established that pampers and huggies are much cheaper on Amazon Mom than Jet.

I don't use Amazon for most day to day items, I use Amazon for deals and for occasional oddball items that I need.
Day to day items are typically from Costco or WM.


Are they cheaper than Costco/WM?

YOU established that but I didn't have a chance to argue the first time around.

1) Subscribe and save requires you to order at least 5 eligible items unless you do some ethically questionable tricks. Add 5 things to your jet cart without a monthly subscription and you will definitely find significant savings.

2) Smart cart was not taken into account.

3) https://jet.com/Luvs-with-Ultra-Leakguards-Size-4-Diapers-128-Count/3de14482ed74482b988f9d0f397ae4c3

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DDMJ0JE

Even without taking discounts into account, and adding all the Amazon discounts, it's still much cheaper on Jet.

4) The price varies for the others pampers as when jet goes out of stock the other prices are higher.
Eventually you should expect these items to always be in stock at lower prices than Amazon.

5) you posted one item that may sometimes be cheaper, but it seems like you agree to the other items I mentioned. You definitely won't get cereal anywhere close to jets price.

6) yes it cheaper than Costco/wm, and also doesn't require you schlep to the store. I started buying a whole lot of things online that were never possible for cheap (formula, cereals, wipes, tissues, and etc)

You are comparing two different sizes of diapers

That's dumb.
On jet I can buy diapers in a smaller box for cheaper price per diaper.
That's a good thing.

On jet the point is that you should be buying a few things at a time to maximize  discounts including shipping after $35.

Not taking it personally at all don't see why you think that.
How can you get 20% off without 5 items?

I buy luvs but obviously I'm not like everyone else because I don't buy huggies which leak all over the place. But again, you're being ridiculous because you refuse to compare other items and you won't compare cart prices. You know how to find deals and you are pretending like you can't find cheaper prices on jet.

Fact is I saved a few hundred dollars vs Amazon prices so far on everyday items that I don't need to schlep to the store for.

How? That's just the way it is, Amazon Mom get 20% off without 5.
And pampers outsells Luvs by a 100-1 margin.  Not sure why that makes me ridiculous?

Saying Jet is cheaper than Amazon for detergent isn't saying anything when Costco is less than half the price of either.  That won't change how I shop.

Sorry for the Megillah. Dan I decided to do the dirty work for you.

I am attempting to recreate a cart of everyday items from jet to Amazon right now and I cannot give a fair comparison because apparently you can't buy anything on Amazon in regular size for a normal price. Including detergents, baby wipes, paper towels, cereal and etc. this is a big reason why I have been able to move much of my shopping online, I can order normal amounts at regular to great prices.

Amazon
Tide 50oz is $14
Tide 170 oz is $21.49

On jet you can get 92oz tide for $9.99 and in my cart an additional savings of $2.44 off my cart.
It's cheaper than both even before any cart savings. And Costco apparently doesn't let me search for "tide".

Pampers are 28.74 (when waiving returns) and an additional savings of $4.43, becomes nearly the same price as Amazon, though you don't need to buy as many, don't need any subscriptions, and don't need Amazon mom which IINM is only for the main prime member.

My total order for:
144 pampers $28.74 ($4.43 off with SC)

Tide with downy 92oz $9.99-2.44 SC.

2x 18oz old spice body wash $6.58 (smart cart $4.92/2.48 each)

2x 210ct Kleenex $4.98 (SC $3.60/1.80) (way cheaper than Costco, and cheaper than Amazon where you also need to buy 8 )

2x 64ct baby wipes pampers natural (with plastic cover)
2x 64ct wipes pampers Baby fresh with cover

2x similac advance 2.13 lb (34 oz) $36.99 but smart cart savings about $5 each. On Amazon for $39.99 each. In stores not usually cheaper than $36.99 and no stores nearby that sell a big size.

2x 6ct Scott's paper towels naturals $5.36 each but $4.75 after SC. On Amazon I would need to buy 32 rolls and subscribe to pay $1.19 roll vs $.75 roll at jet.

Crispix 18oz $4.47 (not particularly cheap)
2x 12.25oz Cheerios for $6.78, or $2.63 after SC.

Total is $120.23 after saving $32.98 on jets regular prices.
The discount in my cart make my order 21.6% cheaper than jet regular prices, which are already usually cheap.

These items are similar to the items I would buy in shoprite but cheaper.
And on Amazon most of these items are available only in bulk, are more expensive, or both.

Again, that's with bulk pricing, driving to the store and lugging all those heavy things into your cart.
My time is worth money, and so is the hassle, it's hard to find time to go shop in store, and it costs another membership.

Online was always supposed to make everyday shopping convenient and affordable but it hasn't yet done it for me until jet came around.

The topic is why a washer is a couple hundreds dollars more from them. Have yet to get an answer from the shills.
Referring to this?
To be fair I put this to a real test. They have a washer I am looking for.
LG Electronics Washing Machines 5.2 DOE cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in Graphite Steel, Energy Star Stainless Look WM8500HVA
Price is 1439.10 and Sears has it for 1439 flat. Also with Sears I get $50 SYWR and can double dip with gift cards. Am I missing something or does Sears blow them out of the water?

I don't think you can compare shopping at Costco in Cleveland to shopping at Costco in NY, but then again there is google express, so that may trump all because if you include free shipping from Costco conversation is probably over.

I think the future of eliminating grocery shopping is Amazon Now, Google Express etc.

No one wants to shlep to a store and carry things home, also no one wants to have to bundle items together and only buy things when you need multiple items. Both have problems. The answer is Costco and others with free shipping within 2 hours.

I get an annual refund check from Costco that's more than the membership fee.
I also cover my membership with the cashback. However, Costco's strategy is to make choices simpler by eliminating the many options per product type. The problem with that is that I can't get many of the "every day" products I personally like at a Costco store. For example: Tide with Downy, Tasters Choice French Roast, many kosher products from good non-Jewish brands (like BBQ sauce) etc.

Lakewood/Brick Costco sells regular Tide 170oz for $19.99.
Jet sells Tide with downy 92oz for $9.99 (SC makes it $7.55).

Jet is cheaper, and it's delivered to your door.

That is debatable. But comparing apples to apples or even apples to oranges (Kirkland is a store brand so it can't really be compared), Kirland detergent 170 oz is $14.59. Jet still comes out cheaper.

It will always eventually charge the tax if the item is coming for a seller in your state.

funny you both look at it that way, and sure I can see how my post comes across as that. I think before this I posted once, maybe twice in this thread so no I don't care about the post count.

I actually always felt like general discussion was for things that were practical and just didn't fit into a specific category. This thread feels very much to me like a pros and cons of jet vs amazon. similar almost to buying vs leasing. the fact that it was in the deals thread before was also weird to me but I had no desire to say anything. only once this was moved and now that it is become a realistic option for shopping (whether or not you will be using it) seems to be a general discussion topic.

I'll admit my response wasn't exactly pointed at you but rather at some of the participators in this discussion.

Half the thread is people ripping on Jet because the lower rated Kirkland detergent is cheaper than tide on Jet.
Basically pointless criticism that should be called out.
The other half is people defending it, which includes me.
99% of the time, if you try to defend a company it makes you look bad, but I honestly don't care.

I've said multiple times that Jet isn't perfect yet, but they have most of the technology down pat, and they're already pretty darn good at what they're meant for.
People are saying that Jet will be the next Amazon, so some think that means that everything great about Amazon will be on Jet. Or that Jet will take down Amazon.
Which is 100% wrong.
Really it's about becoming another big player in ecommerce, while innovating in a similar fashion to how Amazon and Alibaba did.


I still shop at Amazon, but for me, Jet added a whole new layer to what's possible with online shopping.
This hopefully will get Amazon to fix their prime pantry service as it does not/cannot compete.

Free pantry delivery will be an interesting way of Amazon competing. We shall see in 5 years if Jet is all it is hyped to be.

The future is clearly going toward drone and self driving car delivery, do you think Jet's business model is built to survive that? It seems like they are taking a shipping problem and fixing it a decade too late. In 20 years will Jet still be relevant when everything is being delivered in 2 hours?

Sure they may be good for a decade if they live up to the hype etc. But I am talking about a very near future of a much much more convenient way to shop.

Sure they may be good for a decade if they live up to the hype etc. But I am talking about a very near future of a much much more convenient way to shop.

I don't believe drone delivery will happen in the next 50 years. Even if the technology is ready (it isn't), there are so many worries from lawmakers and the general public that they will likely never let it happen.
Self-driving car delivery will in my slightly educated opinion take at least 15-20 years until it hits the streets.
Still, how does a car without a driver deliver a package? A robot gets out of the car and hand delivers? The trunk opens and launches rocket propelled boxes?

Re: Amazon Prime pantry, I am perplexed why they don't already offer free delivery. It seems to me that either:
A) They haven't found a way to make it profitable without the fees.
B) They're not interested in forgoing profits for membership costs (which Jet does), as they already don't make money on the membership.

You are talking like you are giving advice to Jet on how to handle their business, Amazon thinks that this is the way they'll convince shoppers to buy, and Jet thinks that their way is better, now what?
I'm not giving anybody advice. I'm saying what I think the future of at home grocery shopping will look like. And asked Yuneeq who I think has a good understanding of Jet's business model how he thinks they will do with that.

I hear that. I don't know the future of Drones. As for self driving cars people would have to be there for delivery I suppose. Or a robotic arm can place the box next to a mail box, I guess that really depends on the home type.

Everything in the world is moving towards faster sooner, everything, of course delivery is included in that. Is Jet going to be ready for that. I would pay a few dollars more to have my groceries today instead of in a few days.

Prime Now needs to be added to the regular Amazon checkout. The app is annoying.

For me most packages come next day with Jet (though I would estimate 15-20% of items take 4-5 days, depending where they come from).
If a self driving car needs a human to deliver, it's practically the same thing as using UPS. Don't see how online delivery will benefit from that technology.

I think same-dame delivery will always be expensive.
I read an article recently that Amazon highly targeted their same day delivery programs by hand picking zip codes that are highly profitable (people that buy overpriced items).
That's on top of the extra delivery fee.
This makes me think it will take a while for free same day delivery to be rolled out.

So with Jet you can save a nickel here and a dime there. What about big ticket items where the real savings is. How do they compare on those items.

Is anyone foolish enough to believe they sell at cost and make their money on the membership?

Not exactly click click-bait, Gene Munster is a famous analyst and people like to hear his opinions.
Though I agree it's not gonna happen.

Jet had the biggest funding ($225mm) for an unlaunched ecommerce startup to date. They are backed by some of the biggest VC firms, with investors including Kleiner Perkins, Alibaba, and more. They have really deep pockets and it makes no sense to sell early or sell at all.

Why didn't we think of this? How can this not work?  :)

When a Jet customer buys items that aren’t in its inventory or available from partner merchants, a Jet employee buys the items from another website and has them shipped directly to the customer. That is expensive for Jet because the company often pays high shipping costs plus any difference between its advertised price and the amount charged by the outside website.

In case ya'll think I'm just biased, take read through the comments, there are some great ones (WSJ has some of the highest quality comments online due to their paywall).

I think the article has a few flaws.

A) The dot com bubble is famous not only for the massive funding, but also the extreme valuations in the tens of billions across hundreds/thousands of companies. Jet is a calculated one time bet by private investors in an extremely different environment.

B) Success breeds success. Marc Lore already launched a successful website, no one from the dot com had that pedigree. 

C) Probably the only way to launch a massively successful ecommerce company nowadays is to sink a lot of money into it. The losses will slow as they add merchants. Subsidizing losses is a common practice that some ecommerce companies are doing on a much larger scale than Jet. Including eBay, and Amazon. Amazon shareholders have literally subsidized billions of dollars in Amazon losses, and no one blinks an eye. People believe that Amazon will one day pay off, and so does jets investors.
In Jets case it's private investors who at least understand the risk proposition.

D) About 20% of items in my orders are fulfilled by concierge, the article makes it sound like 50%+.
I wonder what the real numbers are. 50% isn't sustainable for too long. But if it's 20% and they whittle it down to 5-10% in a few months then the losses wouldn't be bad at all.

Why didn't we think of this? How can this not work?  :)

When a Jet customer buys items that aren’t in its inventory or available from partner merchants, a Jet employee buys the items from another website and has them shipped directly to the customer. That is expensive for Jet because the company often pays high shipping costs plus any difference between its advertised price and the amount charged by the outside website.
I liked the part about them changing the CC that they use for each purchase.
Very DDF'ish of them.
I hope they go through cash back portals and use GCs in order to stem losses.

There's only so long that the fed will keep interest rates at 0 which creates cash flow for businesses that otherwise wouldn't be funded with a dime.

I'll probably be doing all my shopping on Jet.com once they open tomorrow. 20%-50% off any website. Sounds like a great site.

That was obvious long ago during the Kirkland debate.

Same here.

Regardless the WSJ article isn't good for Amazon (short-term) and it isn't good for Jet (long-term). So even if someone thinks the WSJ can be bribed to post an article (hint: they can't) who exactly is gaining here?

Again I don't think it's biased so I can't argue with that.
I disagree with the correlation to dot com boom, this case is much different.

Elon Musk was handed billions and lost billions before Tesla and Spacex were successful.
Marc Lore is no Elon Musk, but he is one of the few that has a chance to launch a successful ecommerce site that can gain 20b in revenue in 5 years.

Investors will probably know within the year if Jet has a very good shot at staying around.
If it's a failure, they'll collectively lose less than a billion dollars, which is nothing compared to what they stand to gain.

I will argue that $550mm isn't cheap, and if he wasn't a real threat Amazon would've waited til he bled out. He learned from his previous business model, and went for one place where Amazon has never competed, and still won't compete. Cheap everyday items.

Jet offers no frills besides shopping for cheap (which is flawed until Conceirge is phased out) and can eventually make money off the membership (especially if they raise the cost). Amazon offers video streaming and expedited shipping on all orders, and doesn't make any money on membership. They will have to heavily subsidize Prime Pantry and sacrifice another few years of profitability if they decide to go head to head with Jet.

I am happy the consumer will win in the next few years no matter how this plays out.
Title: Re: Jet.com Master Thread
Post by: Dan on July 20, 2015, 12:32:19 PM
$550M was cheap. Read any article or quote on it, Bezos bled him out and he was ticked that it lost so much value. Just had to wait for the noncompete to end to try again.

And it was cheaper for Amazon to pay off $0.5B and launch Amazon Mom than continuing to give away diapers for free to drive them out of business.

That depends on how much toothbrushes cost at in the swim.. How does in the swim compare on daipers?
In The swim does not sell daipers or diapers but Sears does. They will blow away Jet on diapers if you know what you are doing.

+1

If you were to compare pricing with the 5% S&S discount like most people would get, then you have a somewhat fair comparison. Since many people including myself don't have Amazon-Mom (I have regular prime), it's nowhere near a fair comparison.

obviously the cheap/free merchandise is great. And the cs every1 seems to be ok with... I was solely referring to the website designing as others mentioned about searching/categories. Understanding "$xxx off your order", sometimes it's a discount off of other products and sometimes it's just a discount off their 'list' price.Product descriptions are terribly unclear. There are no product specifications. I was looking at a laptop, the only way to figure out the model was to click on the Walmart (comparison link) .
I think if they are trying to compete with Amazon, target, Walmart, costco they need to up their game...

ROFL. The WSJ is taking a bribe to write the best researched article on Jet yet? That they're going to risk their entire newspaper and journalistic integrity for them?
This isn't YWN you know...

Not saying WSJ article is biased, but they don't look too clean anymore.

An online shopping site with search capabilities of 1980 is not going to be around in 6 months.
Even if they had correct item descriptions.
Even if they had available the amount of items that Amazon has.

You cant even correctly sort the pitiful search results.

Oh well.

Haven't read through all of the comments here, but I think you guys are being too hard on them. I have found solid prices on products that we use on a day to day basis without much difficulty- have made 3 orders of around $25 each with free shipping and have probably saved $10-$20 over Amazon/grocery store.

I know people that were able to get approved for new AMEX cards a few months after a F/R when they preemptively closed down their accounts.

The key thing to avoid AMEX F/R's is to keep each card under a 25K credit limit, and try to use under 33% of the credit line on each card.

Same question for Citi and Chase cardholders-have you been able to reopen cards after being shut down?
Not once you look in a specific department.

Not once you look in a specific department.
Even when you look in a specific department, if you search by relevance (to be able to find the cheapest of a specific item) they bring up all the Chinese stuff for $0.01 + $$$$ for shipping that has nothing to do with the item your searching for. So either the search sucks, PR they need to find a way to filter out all the bugos sellers. (Filtering for prime eligible items will help I'm some cases, but when you are looking for the cheapest & you don't need it in 2 days, then it sucks)

Multi-Pack Quantity Return to Navigation

Our inventory often sees the wrong quantity of product. It happens when the UPC in Jet’s catalog is for a multipack, but the quantity in the listing is for the number of items in the box instead of the box itself. Please see the diagram below.

For me 1-2 day delivery is 1 day, 2-5 is closer 5-7 business days

If you can order before their shipping cutoff time (don't know when that is), my guess is you would get your package Tuesday.

This is an order I placed at 3pm on a Friday and got it on a Wednesday.

I emailed them telling them it came too late (I needed it Tuesday) and they told me 1-2 from Friday is Wednesday.

This doesn't reflect the overall shipments from Jet, at all.
In my recent experience, only 1 item out of the last 50 were fulfilled by another company, and the overall numbers for Jet are much higher than 20% (was about 33% at launch but higher now) and constantly growing.

Amazon is now starting to offer lower referral fees on certain items if they are at a certain low price.
This is very similar to how Jet gets their low prices.

So far we have seen Amazon copy 2 features that benefit sellers (and therefore consumers too).

Prime has been available for non-FBA items for a while already.
This is straight out of Jets playbook.

After thinking it over, this feature is actually good for consumers too.
Sellers can offer cheaper prices for customers nearby.
And if there are sellers in all regions, an item can be bought for cheap anywhere in the US.

One retailer is claiming that Jet is their #2 platform, blowing away every platform besides Amazon.

"We sell on Sears, Newegg, Buy.com —  Jet is putting those to shame," Steeves says. "Sales are probably 20 to 30 times higher than what they are on those marketplaces." http://www.businessinsider.com/jet-startup-profile-2015-8#ixzz3kSShkxn2

Those numbers are a bit shocking (though from only 1 seller), but hopefully it means we have a real #2 platform that can continue to scale.

Yeah, you don't change your entire hyped business model from one day to the next. This can't be good.

This smells very bad to me. it makes no sense on so many levels with their supposed business model. Are they going to charge more and lose the price advantage? How are they going to make enough money to justify the investment?

1- seems like they will sell a free shipping pass for all orders, no minimum
2- they will probably not refund the referal fee as they used to, resulting in higher prices, though I imagine still competetive.

Jet has been a big experiment until now, it seems that people are very worried about paying for a second membership, more than they are about price.

But Lore told Recode that Jet didn’t need to have prices 10% to 15% lower than other online stores. In fact, customers were happy with 4% or 5% discounts, in a test conducted by the company. With today’s news, Jet will possibly start making money on selling items because the items are not as deeply discounted.

Dan, you were so right...

And who doesn’t like a little surprise? As a thank you for being one of our earliest members, we’re replacing the 1 year free membership you started when you joined Jet with a 1 year Free Shipping Pass. This gives you free shipping, with no order minimum, through the remaining duration of the free membership you claimed. You’ll see your Free Shipping Pass (along with important details on its use) added to your account and available for use by next Thursday 10/15. Plus, stay tuned in the coming weeks for additional offers just for you.

They were getting orders that were double the amount of units ordered than they expected (=orders are much more profitable than expected). Jet is actually thriving right now according to 3rd party reports.

Jet has been evolving since day 1, constantly testing to see what works best and refining their site and model. Do you like when management stays the course even when the variables change?

They thought they would get more people to sign up for memebership, but there's too many people that aren't interested in paying for Prime and Jet.

The free 3 month trial was almost over, and they felt a lot of customers wouldn't keep Jet and Prime.
If they determined that they can make money without charging memebership,
Why wouldn't they go for it?

Lore was probably scared shirtless that all his investors would pull out when after 3 months membership went from 5 million to 500,000 (made up numbers) and realized he had to change something fast, so he made membership free.

Agreed what Lore did is not how these investments work. You don't go raising hundreds of millions on a stated business model and then change it a few moths later. You can drink the kool-aid all you want but the fact that they were too scared to test paid membership should show something.

Let me ask you when did they realize people won't pay for Jet and Prime? After he got everyone to invest in them telling them he will make money off paid membership?

I sure hope he's that dumb otherwise he defrauded a whole lot of investors.

I think there are plenty of people willing to pay for membership but way more people that would buy for free.

They're now actually able to make money right away on their orders so if I was an investor I wouldn't be worried at all. I know you're very cynical and pessimistic, but again, jet is doing very well, so stating your opinions with your head buried in the the sand frankly doesn't make sense to me.

Channel advisor, the biggest ecommerce platform for sellers said so after analyzing sales, repeat sales, and etc. They say jet is already the #4 platform for sellers. And if it matters, jet says they are selling double the amount of units than they originally estimated.

No surprise either that many other companies are developing platforms to support jet.

Not to mention, now that the discounts are lower, you should start seeing a lot of brands that were never on jet or pulled their products off the site.

They're a regular ecommerce site right now and can make money like anyone else charging 15% referral fees.

The only discounts that they provide right now are smart cart discounts which are savings passed on for shipping a few items at once. It's not a not-for-profit site anymore. Still skeptical?

Their prices still beat amazons (in recent studies after the pricing change), and their pivot to free membership is 100x more competitive to Amazon than charging for membership, which required customers to forsake their loyalty to Amazon in the hope of better prices.

In fact they weren't cannibalizing sales or customers from Amazon so this change will probably start to do so.

Read through the thread and see how you contentiously argue with anyone who has any question about their outstanding success. This is in JS separate from the deal thread. Over there people would discuss whether or not they feel that deals will be filled. Over here people are schmoozing about the company. Of course people will have questions when a company within weeks of their launch changes a major aspect of their business plan without even trying it out. It will bring into question how well their entire business model is working. It may be a sign of failure of that aspect or may be a sign of amazing success of other aspects which they are trying to build up. Considering the issues they had with pricing at the offset it is hard to imagine that sales have been so amazingly profitable that they will revamp the whole business to focus on that. Therefore people have reasonable speculative questions. If you can't understand that it says more about you than about them.

to some extent that is true. It is an illiquid investment and they are often not able to just pull their money out. On the other hand investors would most definitely be looking at how many trial members convert to paying members. A low number would not look very good. On the other hand it does not look good for them to give up a potentially large steady income stream which was a major part of their business model without having even tried it out.

They cut the discounts from 10-15% to 4-5% and will likely start offering a new premium/free shipping no minumum option for a fee.

They are connected because Jet makes their sellers money.
So if Jet was failing they wouldn't be promoting it, as their own customers are paying them, not Jet.

The main thing they have going for them is smart cart- Smart cart brings real efficiency into the system.
You also have minor things like debit card savings of 1.25% and additional small savings by waiving returns.
These savings that are passed on to the consumer come from weeding out inefficiencies, and don't cost Jet anything.

Jets customers need to understand how to use the smart cart if they are to be successful.
Jets early customers understand how to use the smart cart, so far, better than expected.
It won't necessarily continue though especially after the price increases and a wider customer base that isn't as savvy as their initial target market (millennials).

As my bil put it... "I shouldn't need a calculator while I'm shopping to figure out my best deal"

So compare the prices, they are basically automatically price matching other sites, and that's before cart savings kick in.
Would you rather not have the savings?

I personally love calculating things in the supermarket so obviously I don't mind calculating online either.
But that's just me and I can understand that others don't enjoy it.

Huh...Every post of mine has been based on data and not just pure emotional speculation.
People keep repeating the same stupid things again and again and disregarding 3rd party datapoints with no basis for their arguments.

I believe Jet is not a success story yet and has a big chance of failure.
Though to make up reasons why they will fail or why they changed their business model (some strange conspiracy) that doesn't fit the data and repeatedly ignoring the data doesn't seem very smart to me.
I think you need to look back and see how contentious you have been with anyone who voices any skepticism.

Now let's get this straight. You really cannot understand why someone would have questions when they totally overturn their business model after a few weeks?

Costco makes a killing off membership besides a profit on what they sell. If that was their business model then I can see that it may work. If they give up this potentially lucrative income stream without even trying it one must question why. Simply that they are making great profit off sales themselves is not an answer since they can do both. It must be that they feel that their customer base does not consider their savings to be enough to justify paying membership and do not see that changing. They could have given everyone a free year if they felt it just needs more time to convince everyone. Yet they did not do so.

They can be skeptics but its just dumb to say that everyone is lying about the data.
The data doesn't mean everything is rosy either. But let's not be stupid.

ETA: They can do both membership and make money on sales, but not by charging a membership fee to be on the site.
The only way they could be succesful is by either making solely on membership or from sales and then selling extra add-on membership features like free shipping with no minimum and expedited shipping.

Numbers are just numbers.
GMV is just a number that doesn't need interpretation.
Units per sale are numbers and don't need interpretation.

I'm not claiming things are rosy but you're claiming that these numbers are pulled out of thin air or from some interpretation.

Again, I'm talking to a wall, as I mentioned that the numbers don't mean things are rosy, and you quickly pipe up that numbers are subject to interpretation.

About the data from Channel Advisor: CA was a launch partner with Jet, perhaps their main liaison into the 3p seller market. Of course they're going to promote positive data. In addition, CA is a corrupt worthless company with a terrible product and model.
Saying that Jet is the #4 marketplace is total BS, I'll translate it for you: All of CA's customers sell on Amazon and/or eBay. They try to push them into Newegg as well due to low barrier of entry. Who's next for the lame 3p seller? Jet.

Newegg, Rakuten, Best buy, all sell less than Jet for CA sellers.
Though your overall point (if true) would still mean its worthless data...
I have seen a bunch of companies sprout up trying to market their platforms to Jet sellers, so it seems like their is seller demand for such services..

I guess with time we will find out.

Not sure if a similar issue has been mentioned before, but a while back I created an account and placed an order using a discount code, and jet.com promptly cancelled my order. When I asked why, they said it's due to "multiple accounts". Since this was my first order and I obviously had no clue what they were talking about, I pressed them for more information and the rep claimed that they did not have any further information beyond that.

The only possible connected account might be that of my brother who uses the same credit card billing address as me. Regardless, they suspended my account so that I can't even log in and that was that. Never looked at that site again.

For the same exact brand and amount? Cant compare apples and oranges.

No not the same brands.
For the cutlery, Kirkland may be better than what I get, but it's not worth the extra $$ for something disposable like that imo.
For the plates I actually get better plastic plates

so dont use the offer
i, like geshmak25, found some good items to get that i needed and were close enough in price before the 40% (and the other 15% that jet offers to new customers) that it became worth it.  also, the 2 day delivery was an added perk.
and certainly cant claim you found a better price than this

What makes them look old? Pics?

Also, not sure why it matters how old they are. It's not like you're talking about food products that have expiration dates.

I see they raised the price on the eggs.
OJ is $2.99 which is regular price.
Bananas are VERY CHEAP at just $0.99 for 7-10 bananas.

Carrots, celery, onions, potatoes, pineapple, hot dog/hamburger buns, etc, all are either cheap or fairly priced.

You're shopping online, if you get fair prices that should be enough for most people, especially since you're getting it shipped to your front door.
I don't believe bananas are that cheap. OJ def goes on sale, but still isn't expensive.

If you're looking for the cheapest grocery prices, online is not the place.
Go to watsonsale.com and follow kosher grocery stores sales. I promise, you'll hardly ever find ANYTHING online even close to those prices.
If you're not next to any kosher stores, or too lazy to get off your couch, then shop online.

The thing is, even if you follow the sales and buy local, you won't be getting all the sales in one store.
So you'll be shlepping around to 5 different stores a week, pay gas and meters to save a few $.
Could be worth it if you're bored and not doing anything anyways.

Personally I buy mostly from a 1-2 stores and fill in every few weeks with Jet.

Post by: yuneeq on August 04, 2016, 10:28:22 AM
Didn't find any theories about what Walmart would actually do with Jet if they bought them.
Not sure it makes sense to buy Jet unless they just wanna buy the underlying tech (which is an overpayment).

If they integrate the technology into walmart.com, that would cause issues with the B&M customers who don't get discounts for buying more than 1 item. Why should online be cheaper than B&M?
And if they run Jet separately, how does that help Walmart or Walmart.com?
Unless the investment is not meant to help Walmart directly compete with Amazon.

From Jet's POV, it sounds like they're doing well, as they're allegedly worth double their previous evaluation 9 months ago.
Why sell out now? And if they're not doing well, why would Walmart buy a sinking ship at double the price?

Too many things don't make sense to me right now.

Jet.com CS is making me very dizzy. They are having a "system update" and I'm getting multiple reps responding to my emails.

Also lasership damaged my package so they need to cancel and replace my order.

They didnt offer any comp but I'm sure this episode is far from over (because I placed an order on a price mistake, an item selling for a single item price but listed as a pack of 6, which usually means I'm getting a single one. I have my screenshot ready).

They sent me a refund email based on the full price of the items and did not take into count the discounts. But the credit didn't show on my card and the pending charge is still there.

This should be fun.


Update: They continue on thier wonderful mess of things by resubmitting my order and while doing so putting in the discount (for the full amount) for an extra two cents, making my order -$0.02

Not blaming them. It was obvious that it couldn't last like that, it looks like Jet wanted to test it out so they swallowed the loss while ironing out the kinks. It's still a good price compared to prime pantry/amazon fresh but they need to bulk up their inventory of fresh foods. Also would be better if they waived the fee when you fill your basket with $xx.xx worth of fresh items.
