    I wanted to make a company or to be more clear about what I require, I wanted an online company that will supply quality product to nearly anyone in the world, shipping with easy and affordable.

    What research have you done so far?

    You need to start with the following:

    Decide on the product category you want to sell.

    Gain experience in the products you want to sell.

    Research potential suppliers.

    Research how to source, sample, order, import & pay for goods.

    Have sufficient finance for this project.

    Decide on possible platforms to sell the goods.

    Great.

    Takes a bit more work than wanting to make a company if you want to make some money.

    May want to start with a geographical region then expand to worldwide as your business grows.
    You are going to love supplying Africa, South America and middle east countries. Australia can be a bit of a fun place to supply too.
    Italian post eats deliveries and the French have the ability to go slower than walking pace to deliver from your base.

    It's crucial to find your niche market, and try the water with small money first.

    you can't sell products to africa as their shipping fee there are very expensive. European market+ North America + Australia are good market to test.

    even amazon started from selling books. It is not possible to start selling everything for everyone.

    Please do not use all capitals its harder to read.

    Amazon operates in at least 7 EU countries and sells across over 2 dozen. I don't know if its selling to all EU countries.
    It has at least 16 distribution centres in the UK.

    Yes, except if you are a seller. They can be a competitor.
