The American e-commerce giant said Monday that it is discontinuing Amazon Distribution, its wholesale e-commerce website available to small neighborhood stores in Bengaluru, Mysore and Hubli.
“We don’t take these decisions lightly. We are discontinuing this programme in a phased manner to take care of current customers and partners,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.
I’m guessing this was a pretty small part of the business. Amazon still seems happy with their India business despite all the trouble they have gotten into with it.
This sector contains plenty of venture-backed startups. I think this is also done for regulatory issues and resolutions.
