Amazon’s ‘Global Selling’ program has more than 100,000 exporters whose growing exports are on track to exceed $ 5 billion.

Amazon has digitized more than 4 million MSMEs, including vendors, artisans and weavers, delivery and logistics service partners, and more. The company’s digitization efforts are expanding small businesses, including local retailers, artisans and grassroots entrepreneurs, to reach their customers and expand their reach.
