Why Sell on Amazon Japan?

Japan is home to 120 million people and is the 3rd biggest economy in the world. It has amazing broadband connectivity and fantastic delivery network yet e-commerce has been surprisingly slow to catch on.

But it’s changing very quickly – Amazon is on the rise.

Which is a perfect opportunity for sellers to get in early and get to the top of the rankings while competition is low.

As Amazon Japan increases it’s market share, you too can enjoy the growth of your brand.

John Cant

Business Development & Japan Market Analyst

I have a wealth of experience in both e-commerce and the Japanese market having lived there for 5 years between 2005 – 2010. In the UK I have set-up 4 e-commerce businesses including an online marketplace. My Japanese is proficient and I have an excellent understanding of online business, both in Japan and the UK. I regularly visit Japan to keep on top of current trends.

Away from work, I enjoy running, supporting Hull City and spending time with my family.

Neil Curtis

Amazon Specialist

I’ve been working in online businesses for 5 years in different formats. I started off with SEO work and niche affiliate websites and have excellent understanding of online marketing. In 2016, I started selling private labelled goods on Amazon UK. My key skills are in optimizing listings and keyword strategies. Skills which I developed away from Amazon in the much more competitive world of SEO and google.

Away from work, I play football (and support Newcastle United) and look after my 2 year old daughter.

Having first moved to the the UK in 2000 I am fluent in English, but more importantly, understand what products are a good fit for the Japanese market. I moved back to Japan in 2004 before returning again to the UK and now split my time between both countries. With a background in quality assurance I have an eye for detail and a great deal of experience in logistics and solving problems.
