The country has proposed adding Pakistan Post to the list of global e-commerce giant Amazon’s delivery partners for parcels throughout the country. Pakistan is expected to join Amazon sellers’ list in a week. However, after that Pakistani sellers would have to focus on the quality of their products. The objects sold will be refundable in case of any complaint. Ayesha Humaira, the commerce joint secretary, told The Express Tribune that great progress was anticipated after Eidul Fitr.
“Those who don’t ensure the quality of their products would have their Amazon seller account blocked,” she added. Adviser to Prime Minister on Commerce Razak Dawood recently announced that Amazon was going to add Pakistan in its sellers list within a few days, opening new opportunities for the country’s youth and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Pakistan is the only South Asian nation which is not included in the list of 102 countries on Amazon’s platform, despite being one of the largest manufacturing economies in the area. Last year, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) ranked Pakistan 116th in the 152-nations B2C E-commerce Index. “We have finally made it; Amazon will be including Pakistan to its Sellers’ List within a few days,” Dawood tweeted.
