Amazon.com Inc. has launched its global selling program in Vietnam to allow local businesses to market their products overseas, KrASIA reported Oct. 17, citing the company and local news outlet ICTNews.
The launch comes nine months after the U.S. e-commerce giant signed a deal with Vietnam's trade ministry to offer Amazon Global Selling in the country.
The report said Amazon and the Vietnam Department of Trade Promotion worked together to pick 100 small and midsize enterprises in Vietnam to join the program.
Under the Amazon Global Selling program, sellers will be able to store their products in one of Amazon's over 175 fulfillment centers across the world and sell their products via Amazon's dedicated e-commerce sites in the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
Through Fulfillment by Amazon, the company will manage the pickup, packaging and shipping of products through the Fulfillment by Amazon services.
The expansion in Vietnam follows the launch of Amazon's local online marketplace in Singapore, Amazon.sg.
