[Marketplace Pulse] Amazon Paused Global Expansion in 2023


2023 is going to be the first skipped year since. Belgium was the last new marketplace in October 2022.


Moved to News for Ecomm Sellers


Maybe Amazon has decided that they have enough drop shippers. :grinning:

Or enough Nigerian lottery scams.

Amazon will finally launch in South Africa in early 2024; the company has already started recruiting sellers for the marketplace. The other countries are likely on pause

So Colombia, Nigeria, and Chile “on pause”.

:thinking: Wondering if it’s related to international shipping issues/FBA costs coming out of 2022? Because if they were already recruiting 6 months out for Sellers in SA, then the decisions not launch in Feb-Apr 2023 were made in 2022. They might have decided that logistics for country-embedded FCs/DCs were too costly. Just a thought…

You’re being funny, but I did wonder about crime rate for two of those countries specifically.

South Africa ranks 3rd worldwide for crime index. :flushed:

  • South Africa 76.86
  • (Brazil 67.49 < I believe is the highest of current Amazon Marketplaces)
  • Nigeria 64.06
  • Colombia 56.87
  • Chile 53.42
  • (United States 47.81)
  • (Japan 22.19 < I believe is the lowest of current Amazon Marketplaces)
