Amazon has launched an international shopping initiative within the retailer’s shopping app.
Now, international customers can browse and shop over 45 million eligible items that can be shipped to their country from the U.S. The program is available on mobile browsers and mobile apps within the Amazon shopping app for both iOS and Android mobile devices.
The international program offers shopping in five languages, including English, Spanish, simplified Chinese, German, and Brazilian Portuguese, with the ability to shop in 25 currencies. Customers can choose from different shipping options and delivery speeds, depending on how quickly they want their package to arrive.
To get started, customers can download the free app and they will automatically be placed into the international shopping experience based on their location. Customers who already have the app can choose the “Country & Language” option and select “International Shopping” in the country picker. Customers can then set their language and currency of preference and can change their location at any time to automatically see products that are eligible to be shipped to their selected delivery location.
The international shopping program also displays clear pricing, shipping costs, and import duty estimates, with Amazon coordinating with courier services for customs clearance on behalf of the customer.
“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 U.S.,” said Samir Kumar, vp/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.”
