The people who want to know how to start a business with amazon in Pakistan can get good information from this article. Amazon is the largest online trading marketplace. People all over the world buy and sell their products through Amazon. Ecommerce is replacing traditional markets with online markets. Now, Amazon has provided an opportunity to Pakistani sellers to sell their products using their platform.
Know about Amazon Platform First
To start selling with Amazon in Pakistan, you should be familiar with its mechanism of operating in Pakistan. You should know about
- Types of Accounts

Sign Up Yourself as a Seller
Sign up means that you need to create a new account on Amazon in Pakistan as an Individual or a Business Professional. If you are going to be Amazon Seller in Pakistan, two options will be available to you to open a seller account. The sellers who want to sell less than 40 items may select an individual plan. Or if you want to sale more than 40 products, it will be a professional plan, and it will cost you almost 40 dollars for extra services.
Verification of Account
For verification of your account Amazon will send you an OTP (One time password) at your given email address. By clicking, your account with Amazon in Pakistan will be verified.
Location of Business
You will provide the address where your business will be present. Later on, it will be verified by Amazon. If you don’t have your bank account in any of those countries in Amazon’s Business list, you can’t choose your business address as Pakistan, or your business address should be of that country.
