  • The ‘GST Cafes’ in Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore will specifically have an experienced Charted Accountant to assist sellers in updating their GSTIN on Seller Central and get GST related concerns resolved on the spot.
  • The cafes in other cities will be operated by qualified Amazon.in Service Provider or Account Managers who will help sellers with “how-to” queries around updating GST details in Seller Central, procedural formalities and other simpler queries.
  • All unresolved queries at these cafes will be redirected to Amazon Tax team and will be addressed remotely through email mechanism to ensure sellers get satisfactory resolution.
  • It has been actively leveraging its Facebook Seller Group to create awareness and drive traffic at these cafes and help sellers get GST ready.
