Good news for Pakistani sellers who have been awaiting to sell on Amazon. Pakistan has finally been added to the Amazon approved selling countries list. Pakistanis have been waiting for years to get approved by Amazon so that they could finally sell their products via Amazon across the world.
While the Pakistani sellers were using partnerships with third parties in different countries, they can now officially make accounts on the platform and sell their products. The international ecommerce giant had previously banned Pakistani consumers from selling their products on the platform in any way.
Ministry of Commerce, Pakistan has reportedly got the approval from Amazon to Register Pakistan in the verified Amazon seller list.

Now the Pakistani sellers can create their official accounts on the website while using their official Pakistani details.
Amazon Adds Pakistan to Approved Seller Countries List
This huge achievement was made after tremendous efforts made by some incredible people from Pakistan. Then people who can take the credit for this herculean effort are Ministry of Commerce Joint Secretary Aisha Moriani, Ex Amazon Category Development Head for Amazon North America Division Omer Gajial, General Consul Consulate General Pakistan, Los Angeles Shoaib Sarwar, Badar Khushnood from Pakistani Software Houses Association, National Ecommerce Council and the team of Enablers.org.
Thanks to the hard work of all these people, a new era of ecommerce has opened in Pakistan. This is a positive new development and it will only open new avenues for Pakistani sellers and brings more opportunities for Pakistani consumer goods as well.
While this is still in development, you will still have to wait for an official announcement made by Amazon and they will share the procedure with the new sellers from Pakistan. It is highly expected that the platform will open a domain in Pakistan as well, but all of this will be revealed very soon.
Let’s wait and see what happens next.
