One of the big fours of technology “Amazon” that has crossed trillion mark in the market, ignores Pakistan! Due to the relatively smaller size of economy and restrictive regulations of banks here, Amazon doesn’t allow Pakistanis to sell on its platform. But, a person of Sialkot who sells sports equipment on Amazon earns $1.1 million per month similarly, a Pakistani guy who sells sunglasses on Amazon earns $54,000 per month. So how did they reach Amazon?
Amazon doesn’t allow Pakistani sellers, but Pakistani people along with their worthy products are available on Amazon.
Legal hurdles to register a company in the US from Pakistan:
With a Pakistani address, phone number and bank account, you can’t sign up as seller on Amazon because it requires bank accounts registrations of countries where Amazon operates. If you are an overseas Pakistani, then you can easily overcome these hurdles but if you don’t have a bank account or residency in some other country then you’ll have to adopt the legal ways for signing up as a seller.

If you belong to the first category then you can find the detailed procedures of signing up on Amazon, a few tested solutions to some recurrent problems of the whole process are given below:
- Once you reach the official sign-up page through https://services.amazon.com you should not hurry to click the sign-up option shown in yellow in the top right corner if you are not willing to pay almost 40$ for professional seller sign up. Just scroll a bit down and then select the option “signup as an individual seller”.
- Use exact spellings of your names and address as per your passport and the documents you are providing them otherwise it may cause a serious trouble for you because Amazon is very conscious about these details.
- Always scan your documents and attach the scanned photograph because if you add image clicked from mobile phone as recommended by Amazon your image may not upload due to wrong orientation.
- Amazon usually does not send any confirmation email about successful sign-up so once all the process is completed you can use account without waiting for confirmation email.
For the rest of process, you can go with the flow as there is nothing difficult.
If you don’t own a residency abroad – No Problem! We’ve got you covered 😉
Long and detailed procedures mentioned on Google pages about setting up a store on Amazon and making a seller account are of no use when you are not being recognized by Amazon due to your residency. You live in Pakistan or have Pakistani bank accounts so; it is not acceptable for Amazon to let you sign-up for a seller account.
To register a legal seller account on amazon people can use US bank accounts and addresses and this process works accurately. But if you don’t have any bank account and address in countries other than Pakistan and you are willing to earn the value you and your product deserves, then there are some perfectly legal ways to do so.
These include bank account registration outside Pakistan and use of online banking facility. You can join hands with Ejad Plus for unparalleled assistance in this regard.

So, an amalgam of your skills and our assistance will work wonders for the Pakistani economy.
