“The decision to sell on Amazon was a very natural one, thanks to how popular it is.”
In 2014, a 19-year-old boy, Yash Hisaria from Mumbai was shopping online when he came across the “Sell Online” option. For the fun of it, he decided to sell something online. He looked around his house and found an unused tube of sunscreen lotion. He created an online account, clicked a picture of the tube and listed it on the website. To his delight, the sunscreen was sold when he checked his seller account the next day. Inspired by this, Yash decided to become an online seller. “The decision to sell on Amazon was a very natural one, thanks to how popular it is”, he says. It was relatively easy for him to set up a seller account and sell skin care products on Amazon. With his efforts and assistance from Amazon, sales began to grow steadily and within seven months St. D’Vencè sold about 1.5 lakh products and made a revenue of 2 Crore rupees.
Yash is now 22-years-old and wants to pursue Business Administration from an esteemed university. Amazon is making it possible for him to sponsor his own education without depending on his parents. What about his business you ask? “With Amazon’s Seller App, I have been able to manage my online business from virtually anywhere”, he says.
