>>1040578 You don't. They haven't made a profit...ever. They're being given investor cash to crush all competition. They're literally designed to ensure there's no competition left standing by the time they bunker down and make a proper margin.
you would have to start a competing business one city at a time kind of thing and take losses for a LONG time, as buddy mentioned, Amazon still records a loss on the books every year because of their aggressive expansion
I would think starting it in a city like Raleigh NC or something like that would be wise. With a population around 500k you have a huge customer base but would still gain some good will as a "local" (online) business. you wouldn't be able to compete with amazon's prices (razor thin profit margins) because you simply would not have the same sales quantities, so you'd have to rely on amazing customer service and free 2 day delivery on everything or something like that.
If you get extremely lucky, you gain traction and eventually expand to a bunch of other similarly sized cities until you can launch nationally. good luck
You lease a 1,500,000 sf warehouse filled with almost all goods and have it equipped with proprietary sorting robots that retrieve orders. Run it 24/7 and do the same thing near most major metro hubs in the United states. Do all this and undercut amazon
