Third-party sellers represent significant value to Amazon's online retail customers and Seller Support enables success for these sellers through a combination of people, processes and services. We are a primary interface between sellers and Amazon by direct interaction between our Associates and Sellers, by building communication tools that sellers use to receive help, and by driving cross-functional initiatives to improve the seller experience.
