And I read that both Amazon and Ebay are awash with fake stuff. Buyer beware as always.

Well eBay is simply a sales platform for all and sundry, including various scammers and chancers. Amazon Marketplace is similar. But I don't think Amazon itself is 'awash' with fakes. Or at least, not any more so than any other retailer.

Amazon 'itself' includes the "3P" sellers nowadays though, which is part of the successful model, but also the source of copies and faulty goods. however that is dealt with, surely online shopping, including Amazon, is going to continue growing in market share and value.

Amazon 3rd party sellers sell "third-party to consumers through the Amazon marketplace"

A new report from digital marketing research firm eMarketer indicates that the Silicon Valley giant is expected to capture a whopping 49.1% of the US retail market by the end of 2018.

an extraordinary stat to reach within a few short months.
Amazon have built the critical mass, the physical infrastructure, developed via 3P, AWS... imo it's The company to invest in during the present time.

I don't think so.

Total US retail sales are about $5000bn. Amazon worldwide sales in 2017 were $180bn, which includes non-US revenue and amazon webservices. Walmart worldwide revenue is more than double amazon.
