The e-commerce giant’s heavy investment in infrastructure and technology, launch of several India-specific innovations, partnership with numerous government bodies has empowered hundreds of thousands of small businesses, artisans, weavers, women sellers and tribal entrepreneurs in India to leverage the growth of digital economy and expand their business.
"When we launched Amazon.in in June 2013, we had only 100 sellers on our marketplace. Today, over 340,000 sellers in India are using our services and the numbers are only increasing every day! We are extremely excited, proud and humbled by the progress we have made over the years, particularly so because we have been instrumental in transforming the lives of thousands of SMEs who sell on Amazon.in. Our single-minded focus continues to be on working backwards from seller needs and innovating on their behalf enabling them to successfully run their online business. This is in our DNA and it has worked very well for us in the past. We are the most preferred marketplace amongst sellers in India and looking at the past five years of our growth in India, we have every reason to believe that we will be able to take this to the next level," said Gopal Pillai, director and general manager, seller services, Amazon India, said.
Since its launch in June 2013, Amazon.in has been working extensively to launch services that meet different business requirements of sellers and help them grow their business profitably online. From offering fulfilment By Amazon, innovating Easy Ship, launching Seller Flex, Global Selling Program which helps Indian businesses to transcend geographical boundaries and take their authentic regional selection to buyers all over the world, to building the largest storage capacity in e-commerce in India for sellers, Amazon.in has been helping sellers reach millions of customers across the country and globally. Furthermore, through its comprehensive suite of tailor-made services such as regional language support, Service Provider Network, lending, Seller University, Amazon.in has aligned its efforts to handhold sellers and enable them to leverage the growth of digital economy.
Henceforth, Amazon.in will also be focusing more on getting specialised and niche categories to continue to improve the customer shopping experience. The company will continue to expand adoption of Amazon Seller App as an alternate solution for sellers who don’t have a computer/ laptop and assist them in managing their business on the go. At the same time the company will help sellers leverage its innovative and gold standard logistic solutions. (RR)
