    Abstract:
    The micro and small business sector has long been considered a critical source of employment and development In the United States. Micro and small businesses (MSEs) are one of the effective means of increasing the country's gross domestic product (GDP), reducing unemployment, and fostering a thriving economic environment. Micro and Small-sized enterprises account for a large amount items sold in Amazon shops. Amazon has developed a list of practical resources, tools, and chances to assist small companies. It is hypothesized that small businesses that sell in Amazon stores outperform those that do not sell in Amazon stores in terms of revenue growth. The objective of this study is to check this hypothesis. The data came from micro and small businesses (2-50 employees) in the United States. The data is balanced panel data of 139 micro and small business for 2 years (n=139, t=2). This study used Fixed Effect (FE), and Random Effect (RE) models. The results seem to support the hypothesis that selling on Amazon positively impacts the revenue growth of SMEs. The findings of this study could be useful for SMEs owners in the United States who wish to persist in the revenue growth of their businesses.
