Amazon launches marketplace for services - Business - The Boston Globe

(A:Z)*(products + services); also see Amazon Wants to Be Your Home Services Middleman (WSJ)
"The Web retailer said Monday that it had struck deals with companies across the country to offer 700 services, from repairing cracked iPhone screens to grazing goats on your lawn, through its website. Just like buying goods, customers can browse for services and pay the seller whose ratings and prices work best, but they have to book a time slot.

The new section, called Amazon Home Services, doesn’t offer every service in every city. According to a map on its website, only Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City have a high level of coverage."
