eff Bezos, 2016 Annual Letter to Shareholders: 'India is another example of how we globalize an offering like Marketplace through customer obsession and a passion for invention... We're also globalizing Fulfillment, adapting the service to local customer needs. In India, we launched a program called Easy Ship to ease shipping (of products brought on Amazon) for sellers.'
Jeff Wilke, Oct, 2017 to BS India: 'All the inventions happening here will find their way to other countries. There are things we invented in India that we are deploying elsewhere, examples being Seller Flex and Easy Ship. These are the ideas we have transferred to other geographies.'
