Pakistan has become the third fastest-growing market on the global marketplace of the American retail giant Amazon, just one year after joining the sellers’ list.
According to Marketplace Pulse, an e-commerce intelligence firm, thousands of Pakistani sellers have joined Amazon’s marketplace within one year of the country being added to its official list of sellers.
Pakistan is at the third spot among new sellers that joined Amazon’s marketplace in 2022, behind the US and China in first and second place respectively.
As of 2022, the top 10 countries with the highest number of registered Amazon marketplace sellers are as follows:
1. United States
4. United Kingdom
These sellers are expected to bring in $23 billion to the country in exports with the cotton textile production and apparel manufacturing being the largest industries in the country.
Let’s have a look at the 10 countries with the highest number of sellers registered on Amazon’s marketplace in 2022.
The former federal government under the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) promulgated the E-Commerce Policy of Pakistan in 2019. In 2020, the Federal Commerce Ministry under the Special Assistant to Prime Minister, Abdul Razzak Dawood, began negotiating with Amazon.
These negotiations resulted in Amazon including Pakistan on its sellers’ list in May 2021. Almost a year later, Pakistan now has the third-highest number of registered sellers on Amazon in 2022.
