Open to all sellers who are less than a month old on Amazon.in, the programme creates a virtual classroom for sellers and focuses on areas such as order processing, adding products and managing returns that are required to operate a successful online business.
Amazon Classroom will be available for all the new seller across categories where they can register for these online classroom sessions and get the opportunity to understand the nuances of online selling workflows in a guided environment with free practice sessions, the company said.
