When entrepreneurs, artisans, and small businesses working with Amazon India thrive, our customers benefit from the products and services they offer.

Since 2020, over 3 lakh new sellers have joined Amazon.in. Our new program Local Shops on Amazon has already grown to 50,000+ sellers in 450 cities within one year of launch, and has played a key role in helping these retailers manage the disruption in the market with lockdowns and on-ground restrictions. Throughout this time, Amazon India has been working with sellers and partners to fulfill the ever-evolving customer demand with a focus on our three key pillars of convenience, selection, and affordability, while taking measures to help them navigate through the disruption caused by the pandemic.
