Amazon Unveils ‘International Shopping Experience’ To Ease Purchases
Amazon has unveiled a new service via its shopping app, which, it says, will enable customers around the globe to facilitate the purchase of more than 45 million products.
The service, called International Shopping Experience, is available in five languages, including English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese and German, and 25 currencies, with more languages and currencies to be added later this year.
Using the service, customers can choose from different shipping options and delivery speeds, depending on how quickly they want their packages to arrive.
Users can also change their location at any time to automatically see products that are eligible to be shipped to their selected delivery location.
“We are always innovating on behalf of our customers, and with today’s launch, we are making the shopping experience on mobile devices even better and more convenient for our customers who live outside the US,” said Samir Kumar, VP of Amazon exports and expansion.
“Customers have been asking for a way to easily find and shop only for products available to be shipped to them. The International Shopping Experience solves this customer need and makes it simple to browse, shop and ship more than 45 million products to over a hundred countries around the world,” Kumar added.
In a statement, Amazon said that the ‘International Shopping Experience’ ensures clear pricing, shipping costs, and import duty estimates, ‘with Amazon coordinating with courier services for customs clearance on behalf of the customer, so there are no surprises at the time of purchase or delivery.’
