The Adviser to Prime Minister of Pakistan for Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood announced on Thursday that Amazon decided to add Pakistan to its approved Seller’ List.
As per details, Amazon's sellers' list will create opportunities for the exporters to sell their products through the platform, giving them access to market their products through the 3P model, which brands the owners with a third-party relationship to retail sell directly to buyers through the marketplace. Amazon also offers the 1P model for mass producers, who want to produce for Amazon brand items.
The opportunity gives way to various Pakistani companies and brands, which have been selling their products through their overseas offices. The inclusion of Pakistan in the Amazon seller's list will help promote more businesses and online buyers to reach the Pakistani brands. Pakistan Commerce Minister Razak Dawood announced the news through a series of tweets.
The development has been welcomed by Prime Minister Imran Khan, who said the opportunity will open gateways for the youth, and a new breed of young men and women entrepreneurs to join the export market.
"A great development as Amazon has finally approved that our sellers can export their goods through their system. Amazon starting operations in Pak will open opportunities for our youth as it will enable a new breed of young men & women entrepreneurs to join the export market," he tweeted.
