Amazon will curate a dedicated storefront on Amazon to showcase products available from DED Trader license holders. Once the businesses are registered to sell on Amazon, they will have the opportunity to access Amazon Account Managers who will work closely with them to offer strategic advice and insights to help them sustain and grow their business.

The Account Managers will also support the start-ups with advice on operational aspects such as listing creations and how to gain visibility on their products. They will offer advice on key areas such as fulfillment and inventory, merchandising and advertising, and ensure start-ups are up to date on the latest programs that will help fast-track their growth on Amazon. DED Trader is issued by Dubai Economy to license freelancers in their place of residence in Dubai as well as business activities that operate online or on social networking sites. DED Trader, which is issued electronically online aims to guide traders towards the right path to start and enter the business world.
