Amazon India, on Wednesday, announced that over 10 lakh sellers are now selling on from across India. Over 90% of Amazon sellers are small and medium local businesses (SMBs), with more than half hailing from tier 2 and tier 3 cities. More than 4.5 lakh new vendors have joined Amazon since January 2020, with over one lakh of these new sellers being local offline merchants and neighborhood stores that joined the Amazon marketplace under the Local Shops on Amazon programme.

“It is heartening to see the role Amazon is playing in enabling small local businesses across the country, including local offline retailers and neighbourhood stores from across India that are adopting ecommerce and placing their trust in Amazon to grow their business by selling online, participating in last mile deliveries, joining assisted shopping and more. ”

Manish Tiwary, Vice President – Amazon India

He adds, ‘The rapid growth of sellers joining reflects the tremendous entrepreneurial spirit of the Indian businesses and the key role ecommerce has played in their business especially during the recent challenges caused by the pandemic. As we look forward, we remain committed to our pledge of digitizing 10 million SMBs including the ubiquitous dukaans. We strongly believe that Amazon can play a significant role in fueling India’s digital economy to its $1 trillion ambition.

Starting in India with 100 sellers in 2013, the company has today grown to be the preferred online destination for sellers across India. Amazon has been working with India’s huge network of neighborhood stores to integrate eCommerce into their operations through initiatives such as Local Shops of Amazon (for online selling), Amazon Easy (for aided buying), I Have Space (for last-mile delivery), and more.
