Default amazon branded things?

I was looking on amazon.com for a home shredder and most of the initial selections shown were Amazon branded.
Is this a new trend for Amazon (like grocery store house brands)?

No different from what Home Depot or Target does.

Home Depot lights are mostly Hampton bay which they own or their HDX line. Why not cut out the middle man when you are doing huge volumes of goods.

This has been coming for years.
They take the AWS stats and go overseas to have the top selling products produced to compete with their own clients....
AWS clients are sheep....

Amazon Basics are house brand cables and other doo-dads. They seem to do the job for the price.

Amazon does do some interesting design and packaging with their products. The ones I have bumped into are typically better and cheaper than their counter points.

Bought a basic office chair recently that was Amazon branded. Actually pretty decent for the money.
