SELLER SUMMIT VALUABLE INTRODUCTION TO SELLING ON AMAZON
The seller summit will focus on platform technology and opportunity for small businesses. While many sellers in the U.S., U.K. and other places are familiar with the process, this valuable seller summit will help Australian businesses get up and going quickly.
Amazon revealed they already have over 500 Australian merchants registered to sell on the platform when it goes live.
With over 50 percent of all items sold on Amazon coming from third-party marketplace sellers, helping small businesses sellers in Australia is very important for quick growth for the eCommerce giant.
Many small eCommerce businesses in Australia may have experience selling on eBay’s platform, but Amazon requires a slightly different approach.
Seating is limited, and registration is required. Invites are restricted to 2 people per business and are not transferable. For more information about registering for this event, click on this link.
With Amazon’s first fulfillment center in final development, the seller summit shows how close the company is to going live with selling physical goods in Australia.
