Amazon SG unveils new end-to-end shipping service, ‘Amazon Easy Ship’

Singapore – Singapore arm of e-commerce giant Amazon has unveiled its new end-to-end shipping service, Amazon Easy Ship, aimed at helping local sellers scale their businesses online.

For a fee, Amazon Easy Ship allows sellers to ensure faster and more predictable delivery experiences for customers along with the up-to-date shipment tracking information, which is optimized for cost and speed with shipping services through Amazon’s enrolled carriers. The sellers will not need to configure fulfillment time manually, freeing up their time to focus on better sourcing, creating, and promoting their products and brands to grow their customer base.

The new shipping service is currently available in Singapore as a pilot and invite-only program, with the full roll-out to all sellers planned for February 2022.

Eric Broussard, Amazon’s vice president of international seller services, believes that they are helping small and local businesses sell online through shipping solutions such as Amazon Easy Ship, where we offer shipping labels from Amazon-negotiated contracts with carriers to Merchant Fulfilled Network (MFN) sellers. 

“To date, Amazon has invested over US$18b globally in logistics, fulfillment capabilities, new product launches, services, programs, and tools in support of seller success,” said Broussard.

Amazon said that the launch of the new service comes at a time when the number of Singapore sellers in Amazon’s local and international stores has increased by more than 45% between 2019 and 2021. This is in addition to the 25% increase in sellers exporting their products with Amazon.

More will be shared at the Seller Summit 2022, which will be held virtually today, 14 January, from 9 am to 6:30 pm SGT. The free event will educate sellers in Singapore on key e-commerce topics such as shipping and fulfillment, advertising, brand building, and global expansion. Attendees can also look forward to networking with experts, successful Amazon sellers, and third-party service providers.
