Pakistan has finally bagged a position in the Amazon approved selling countries. Although it might take 12 – 24 hours for the process to be finalized, up and running. Accounts can be made using Pakistani details.
Aisha Moriani (Joint Secretary, Ministry of Commerce), Omer Gajial (Ex Amazon Category Development Head for Amazon North America division), and Shoaib Sarwar (deputy Consul General, Consulate General Pakistan, Los Angeles), as well as the NECC (National Ecommerce Council) team and Badar Khushnood from Pakistan Software Houses Association, just to name a few deserve a standing ovation for their contributions to this incredible achievement.
They’ve been working around the clock to get Pakistan added to Amazon’s authorised seller’s list, and it’s paid off!
This milestone will drastically change the game and result in a new era of economic growth as more sellers will visit the platform than ever before.
Abdul Razak Dawood, the Prime Minister’s Adviser on Commerce and Investment, had previously stated that the trend of e-commerce had accelerated in recent years as a result of the growth and easy accessibility of the internet. He went on to say that the importance of e-commerce had risen dramatically as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, making it an incredibly important field of the economy.
Now that Pakistan has been added to Amazon’s authorised seller’s list, all one can do is pray and hope for the country’s growth to take a positive turn.
