The note shared a number of charts to illustrate this point, based on the results of a recent survey it ran against 2,024 people, of whom 1,682 had shopped on Amazon over the past 12 months.

The first chart shows that Amazon is the clear mindshare winner when it comes to online retail. Its rivals like eBay, Walmart, and Target lag far behind Amazon in terms of visit frequency. And Amazon's lead over second place eBay has widened over the past year.

But what should be most concerning to other retailers is that all of this is leading to higher purchase frequency on Amazon.com. Now, an estimated 47% of Amazon customers make at least 2 to 3 purchases a month, up from last year's 42%, the survey says.
