Amazon generates two-thirds of its total revenue from its business interests in the United States, including its retail business, marketplace, seller services and its computing business, Amazon Web Services. Amazon’s next-largest markets for sales are Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom.

Retail products Amazon sells directly to consumers (where Amazon is the seller of record) accounted for $91.43 billion of Amazon’s 2016 revenue, or 67.2%.

Revenue generated as a result of the services it offers other online merchants (third-party seller services) accounted for $22.99 billion in revenue, or 16.9%”.
