Pakistan has sent a proposal for adding Pakistan post to the list of global e-commerce giant Amazon delivery partners for parcels within the country. Pakistan is expecting to see itself in the Amazon seller list forthcoming. However, quality products would be the top priority of all Pakistani sellers. The sold items will be refundable in case of any complaint. Ayesha Humaira, who is the commerce joint secretary, told that they are expecting great progress after Eidul Fitr.
“Those who don’t ensure the quality of their products would have their Amazon seller account blocked,” she added. Razak Dawood, the adviser of the PM on Commerce recently announced that Pakistan expected to be on the amazon seller list within a few days.

“We have been engaged with Amazon since last year and now it’s happening, he added.” “It is a great opportunity for our youth, SMEs, and women entrepreneurs. It is an excellent opportunity for our youth, SMEs, and women entrepreneurs,” Dawood wrote.
