Amazon's shopping app goes worldwide

Amazon's shopping app goes worldwide

Inc. (AMZN) has just rolled out a new shopping tool created to make it easier for overseas customers to buy items from its US website.

The new shopping experience is available through your web browser and the Amazon Shopping app, the company said in a press release. It's created to display products and their pricing more clearly.

Customers can also choose from different shipping options and delivery speeds. The Amazon app uses the location to determine whether the feature is necessary in your country.

Those who already have the Amazon Shopping App can adjust their settings by choosing the "country and language" option and selecting "international shopping" in the country menu. You can browse the site in five languages: English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, German, and Brazilian Portuguese.

Amazon's "international shopping experience" won't make more items available locally, but the company argues it will make shopping through its app more convenient.

It suggests that there may have been a high demand in Thailand for these services but the brand seems keen on finding solutions for many other markets. "They have been asking for a way to easily find and shop only for products available to be shipped to them".

It will allow customers to shop in 25 currencies, with more languages and currencies to be added in 2018.

In addition to purchase price and shipping costs, Amazon's global store will also estimate duty costs for customers to import their desired products to their respective countries.

Amazon continues to push into overseas markets in a variety of ways, and worldwide shopping can help the company establish a foothold in markets before committing more company resources to their development.
