Amazon has published the 2020 Small and Medium Business (SMB) Impact Report, highlighting how the company benefits SMBs and delivery providers in the US.

“At Amazon, supporting small and medium-sized businesses is a fundamental part of our work and an extension of our customer-centric culture. Our success depends on their success,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO, Amazon Worldwide Consumer. “COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work and has created daunting challenges for small businesses around the world. Yet smaller companies have continued to grow with Amazon, despite the crisis. Third-party sellers have seen record sales in our stores and continue to outpace our first-party sales.”

Amazon provides small business owners, startups, and entrepreneurs with tools and opportunities to succeed – for example by selling their products online or running delivery and logistics companies

The 2020 Amazon SMB Impact Report findings include:

American SMBs selling in Amazon’s stores are growing. In the 12 months ending on May 31, 2020:

  • American SMB sellers sold more than 3.4 billion products, up from 2.7 billion year-over-year, and averaged 6,500 products sold per minute.
