The only part of Amazon making money is the webhosting services.
The Amazon store with shipping has always been bleeding money, relying on investors to make up for charging predatory prices. That part of their business model is even so bad, that while scaling up the percentage of costs grew.

If anyone would even seperate the hosting services from the rest, the rest would go bye bye in no time without the influx of new investments.

So they are trying to make their business work.
At least they pay for the amount of viewtime instead of % of total viewtime.
(Like Spotify does: that is a winner takes all system.)
