Amazon announced on Monday, its plan to deliver packages faster for its customers.

The company made an offer to its employees, telling them to quit their jobs and it’ll help them start a business delivering Amazon packages.

Amazon says it’ll cover up to $10,000 in startup costs for interested employees, adding that it will also pay them three months’ worth of their salary.

TIME reports that the program started last year and it’s part of the company’s plan to launch an independent Amazon delivery business.

More than 200 Amazon delivery businesses have been created since the program was launched, according to Amazon’s vice president of global delivery services, John Felton.

    I asked to represent Amazon in a mail addressed to them, so I could be their agent in Cameroon but they turned it down. Cameroon needs especially hard copies of books, and there is nothing more rewarding than taking Care of what you like to consume.

    My dear Akem Henry,
    You definitely can’t fault them considering the high rate of internet fraud from African,more especially Nigeria.
    Nevertheless, i really wish you and other well meaning Africans can be taken seriously other than being seen as a possible internet scam

    Akem Henry, start a local delivery business in your area. Start small, plan and grow before you scale up to cover other parts of Cameroon. Then go knocking on Amazon’s door again. They will listen.

    Amazon the slave driver…. These offers are are never really good especially from Amazon, they really dont pay their service providers well… its know in the delivery industry… one of the reason Trump is angry at bezos… he negotiated a deal with USPS that is totally skewed to favor Amazon… Business I guess

      I have heard a similar sentiment that it is not really a profitable venture. They want independent contractors for a faster delivery but i cannot rule out them wanting a lower cost for a expedited delivery. But I do believe it is better to work for them in a non order processing and delivery environment.
