According to the most recent research by Marketplace Pulse, two relatively small cities in Pakistan topped the list of locations where the most merchants registered with the world’s largest eCommerce company, Amazon, during the current year, placing the nation in third place for the registration of new sellers.
A New York-based e-commerce intelligence company called Marketplace Pulse gathers information on some of the major online retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Walmart, Wish, and other marketplaces. A current dataset of millions of Amazon marketplace vendors is kept up to date by the company.
With Sahiwal and Mian Channu leading the way, Pakistan is the third-most populous nation by the number of new sellers, per its study.
Unsurprisingly, the top two countries on the list are China and the United States.
According to a recent statement from Marketplace Pulse, “the thousands of Pakistani vendors pale in contrast to the two largest locations, but that’s more than the rest of the countries on the globe, including export centers like India and bordering countries like Canada.”
According to the research company’s creator, the two cities in Punjab accounted for the majority of registrations, followed by Karachi, Pakistan’s commercial capital, and other significant urban areas.
According to the founder of Marketplace Pulse, Juozas Kaziuknas, over 4,000 vendors from Pakistan have signed up to sell on Amazon.com so far this year. Most came from Sahiwal, Mian Channu, Lahore, Multan, and Karachi, among other locations.
He continued, “The order of the cities is determined by the number of sellers.” “Sahiwal has contributed the most thus far.” Tens of thousands of Pakistani vendors should have joined Amazon by the end of 2022, according to the monthly growth in registrations (nearly 1,000 so far in June).
Pakistan was added to the list of nations permitted to sell goods on Amazon in May 2021 following negotiations that lasted for over a year between the e-commerce company and the government of the nation.
