Online retailer Amazon is looking to boost sales of second-hand products through its website.
Amazon.co.uk will feature 'Used Stores' in its books, music, electronics and gaming categories which will allow customers to buy second-hand goods.
The company is looking to increase sales through its Amazon Marketplace service, which it launched in the UK earlier this year.
Marketplace allows customers to buy and sell new and used products through Amazon's own web pages.
Founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos said that Marketplace sales are enjoying double digit month-on-month growth, but that this was not affecting sales of new products.
"We don't think there is any cannibalisation [of sales]," he explained. "Customers' new product purchases have accelerated. By giving them a better service they've become better customers."
But he told vnunet.com that he had no targets for the success of Amazon's sales through the Marketplace service.
"The capital requirements are very modest, so it's not essential to have accurate forecasts in this business," he said.
Bezos added that customers' fears about security are no longer a problem for Amazon. "Credit card fears are something that has almost completely vanished as a concern," he said. "These concerns are irrational and they fade."
