Amazon, world’s leading online retailers, has announced that sellers on the website have sold a record-setting more than 2 billion items worldwide in 2014.

A large number of sellers on Amazon have adopted the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service, that enables sellers to have Amazon store and ship their products directly to customers, while offering Amazon Prime benefits, free shipping, simple exporting to customers around the world, streamlined cross-border trade, easy returns, and award-winning Amazon customer service.

For small and medium businesses, Amazon payments has expanded the availability of Login and Pay with Amazon, providing hundreds of millions of customers a fast, easy and secure way to pay on thousands of websites, using the information already stored in their Amazon accounts, says reports.

Sellers on Amazon from more than 100 different countries around the world fulfilled orders to customers in 185 countries using the FBA service. China and Hong Kong-based sellers with international sales grew 80 percent year-over-year. Product selection available through FBA on the Amazon.in marketplace tripled year-over-year.

Amazon introduced the Amazon Seller App to help sellers manage their businesses on Amazon direct from their mobile devices. Amazon continued to remove barriers for cross-border sellers to help reach customers worldwide. The etailer expanded recruitment for new sellers and selection from emerging regions including Australia, South Korea, and Singapore.

The online retailer expanded Sunday delivery through the US Postal Service to thousands of cities across the US, enabling FBA items from sellers to reach customers on Sundays.
Many FBA offers from sellers are now available with same-day delivery in 12 metro areas across the US.

FBA introduced Amazon Partnered Carrier services for sellers in Italy and Spain to access discounted rates with select carriers when shipping inventory to Amazon. Amazon unveiled the ‘Make an Offer’ experience that allows customers to negotiate prices on items.

Peter Faricy, VP for Amazon Marketplace said, “It’s been a record-setting year for selling on Amazon. We’re seeing strong growth from sellers listing their items across our global marketplaces.” (GK)
