Amazon, the e-commerce giant that is the world’s largest retailer, has announced plans to sell more than $1 billion of products through a new retailer.
The announcement comes on the heels of a $1-billion investment in the eCommerce store that Amazon said last month was aimed at boosting its customer base.
It’s also a big win for retailers in a crowded space, which has become increasingly difficult for larger competitors to enter in recent years.
Amazon said it will continue to sell products directly from its warehouses and online retailers like eBay and Walmart.
The company is also working to integrate with third-party resellers.
Amazon also said it is making an additional $2 billion in purchases from its fulfillment centers, which it calls “factory floors.”
That means Amazon is expanding its fulfillment network to include some of the world’ largest manufacturers and retailers.
Amazon did not give specific sales figures, but it said the company expects to have more than 2,000 fulfillment centers in operation by the end of the year.
Amazon said it was making significant investments in the fulfillment network in order to expand its inventory and support more Amazon customers.
Amazon has long focused on its warehouse operation, but the retailer has increasingly focused on a new line of products and services aimed at smaller retailers and customers who can’t always find its products online.
The company also announced last month it will start offering its Kindle Fire tablet in retail stores.
The move came after Amazon sold a million of the devices last year and has been on a steady sales rise.
The retailer is also expanding its online shopping platform, which is expected to see a new $1 million investment.
