The venture could not only increase Amazon's hold in e-commerce but also wipe out competitors like Craigslist.

Remember the days when you turned to the yellow pages to find ‘home repair service’ companies? Or asked the girl next door to babysit your kids? Those days ended when websites began listing specialized services, where we can instantly compare prices, history, and reviews. We live in a world where everything digital seems better, so instead of browsing the local listings, we visit Craigslist, Angie’s List, Homeadvisor.com, or any of the multiple service-listing websites currently on the market. Regardless of which site you choose to visit, however, you feel confident in deciding on a service using this method, but with Amazon aiming to debut the sale of these kinds of services by the end of this year, there soon might not be much consideration of which site you visit.
