“When I started this work, I did not have to make any investment. There was no fee. So I thought it would be a part-time work and would provide some additional income. But soon, it turned into my primary source of income. Now I am able to fulfil every need of my family. ”
Arun

“We operate out of Alibaug and that has its own set of supply chain challenges. While we are nearly four hours from the nearest city, with Amazon Business it is just a click away. We buy everything—from large equipment to cleaning supplies to coco peat, planting trays—from Amazon Business. The key reason why Impossible Foods is using Amazon Business is that they are efficient. It makes our lives easier and our growth path quicker.”

“I started my travel agency Vardhman Tour and Travels in Saharanpur 12 years ago, but when everything began moving online our revenues started dipping. I decided to partner with Amazon Easy in August 2020 to sell grocery and electronics. It helped me secure an immediate customer base. Our collaboration with Amazon has helped me grow more than 2X in three months and I have added two more employees to keep up with the demand. During the Amazon Great Indian Festival recently, we did sales worth ₹10 lakh. The increased footfalls have also resulted in more people reaching out for travel related queries.””
Shubham Jain
Amazon Easy Store Owner
“I always wanted to start a business of my own, but it was not until 2017 that I launched my shop in Nangloi. Customers would drop in to my store for all kinds of gadgets and electronics, including large appliances. To expand our reach and cater to customers beyond my locality, I joined the ‘Local Shops on Amazon’ programme recently. Since joining Local Shops, we have seen our online business grow month on month. More importantly, it offers us greater control over the inventory and delivery of the products. We started the year with three employees and today we have ten Delhi team members.”
