As with most major retailers, Amazon offers multiple store brands. The products are available on Amazon.com, AmazonFresh, Prime Pantry, Prime Now, Amazon Go, and/or Whole Foods Market. Some of Amazon's store brands require an Amazon Prime membership to purchase, such as Wickedly Prime.

Pinzon[edit]

In August 2005,[1] Amazon began selling products under its own private label, Pinzon; the trademark applications indicated that the label would be used for textiles, kitchen utensils, and other household goods.[1] In March 2007, the company applied to expand the trademark to cover a more diverse list of goods and to register a new design consisting of the "word PINZON in stylized letters with a notched letter "O" which appears at the "one o'clock" position".[2] Coverage by the trademark grew to include items such as paints, carpets, wallpaper, hair accessories, clothing, footwear, headgear, cleaning products, and jewelry.[2] In September 2008, Amazon filed to have the name registered. USPTO has finished its review of the application and it was officially granted in 2016.

AmazonBasics[edit]

In December 2018 the company launched five initial AmazonBasics toy listings pages. Plans to expand the private label to include toys had not been confirmed by Amazon.[6][7]

Amazon Elements[edit]

In 2014, Amazon launched Amazon Elements, a line of domestic products including baby wipes and (formerly) diapers.[8]

Wickedly Prime[edit]

In early 2017, Amazon launched a line of snack foods under the name Wickedly Prime.[9] The products, such as chips and cookies are only available to Amazon Prime members in the United States.

Wag[edit]

Introduced in May 2018, Wag is a Prime-exclusive brand of dog food available on Amazon.com.[11] The brand's name and logo were derived from Wag.com, which was acquired by Amazon and later shut down.[12]
