Amazon Launches the International Shopping Experience in the Amazon Shopping App

Amazon Simplifies International Purchases Of U.S. Goods

Announced today, Amazon revealed a new shopping experience for worldwide consumers. Created to make it easier to shop for items from the USA, this latest version will provide clear information regarding available products and their total cost, including shipping. Amazon confirmed that the global shopping feature will display pricing, shipping costs and import duty estimates and added that its own staff will manage courier services and customs clearance to avoid complications. At launch, Amazon International Shopping Experience comes with support for five languages - English, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish - and 25 different currencies. However, the addition could make Amazon's shopping app genuinely useful in regions where it was previously little more than a curiosity.

People who newly-download the Amazon Shopping App to an Android or Apple device will only be shown items that are sold to the countries in which they live. Further, you can select the language and currency of preference. Amazon just rolled out global shipping on over 45 million items that can be shipped around the world from the U.S, reports Reuters. "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", added Kumar. Previously worldwide customers had to look at the USA website and check if individual products were eligible for shipping. Amazon is also limiting worldwide shopping to 25 currencies, but plans to expand its support for both more currencies and more languages in the coming months. "Customers have been asking for a way to easily find and shop only for products available to be shipped to them".
