Suggestion for improvement of Amazon online shopping recommendation engine

I appreciate use of item-to-item collaborative filtering by amazon rather than traditional collaborative filtering. Here are some tips to improve recommendation and the hit rate of recommended product.

1. Combine the interests of the entire family: Some time (Like buying a sofa) is a combined interest of family but not just the individual. So it is better to combine interest of the family members for such items which indeed improves the recommendation. Hence ask new member to enter family detail(hence combine amazon account of family members).However, I am aware that there exists million users already. SO by looking at the delivery address of the users, one can group users as a family. This one definitely improve the recommendation engine.

2. Combine interests of friends: While buying, a person is likely to get suggestions about his selection from his close friend. I do consult my best friend before buying a jeans pant or a tank top. Hence by providing a share with a friend option, we can easily track down, whose opinions a person is likely to care. And then by connecting those profiles as friends and then combining their interest before making suggestion can improve the recommendation.

3. Color: Consider this variable seriously. Few people are likely to purchase an item just because its their favorite color and few get attracted to items displayed in their favorite color than the same item in different color. Hence, for any recommended product make sure that you Display the product in user's favorite color or very similar one if its not available. Favorite color of user can be determined by asking the user to enter while creating account or by learning from their previously purchased item's colors. this helps in increasing the hit rate of recommended product.

Thank you

There are too many seller that are selling Inauthentic products. They use the picture from American factories and sell their products as they are selling the original. FAKE products from CHINA. Its really annoying because you believe buying original products but you are buying fake products. It was a safe place to buy, now its turning into Ebay store. where everyone sells whatever they want, fake, original, good and bad. I loved Amazon because you could trust its products, now its just sad, more and more, you are getting fake products.

HELLO AMAZON GROUP, I AM SAURABH AND I WANT TO GIVE A SUGGESTION THAT IN AMAZON PAY VERIFICATION THERE IS NEED TO PREFER OPTION OF AADHAR CARD TO VERIFY THE USER. I AM ALSO UNABLE TO VERIFY DUE TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES BECAUSE I AM A STUDENT OF 17 YEARS AND I DO NOT HAVE PAN CARD OR VOTER ID CARD AND THE OTHER GIVEN OPTIONS.

I TALK FOR THIS QUERY TO THE CUSTOMER EXECUTIVE OF AMAZON AND HE REPLIED ON THIS QUERY THAT HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE HAPPENED IN FUTURE TO VERIFY THROUGH AADHAR.

SO, MY HUMBLE REQUEST IS TO PLEASE MAKE THIS POSSIBLE FOR CONVINIENT USE.

The checkout process should include an optional add-on co$t that Amazon’s shipping service(s) pledge to provide entirely & directly to the end point delivery agent. InstaCart and others already do this as a way to “tip” such individuals...... both during checkout AND/OR as part of their after delivery feedback survey.

Amazon should require the seller list where the product is being shipped from. Ebay does this and it helps me to make a informed decision and purchase. Please Amazon create a space where the product Is being shipped from . Such as NY, CA, ID, OH, OR CHINA, TAIWAN, ENGLAND ETC.
