KUALA LUMPUR, April 18 — Amazon Shopping App has been launched for international customers to browse and shop over 45 million eligible items that can be shipped to their country from the United States.

Amazon.com Inc in a statement said it is an ‘International Shopping’ experience within the Amazon Shopping App.

Customers can shop with ease in their local currency and choose from different shipping options and delivery speeds, depending on how quickly they want their package to arrive, a statement said.

It is available on mobile browser and mobile app within the Amazon Shopping App for both iOS and Android mobile devices with five languages including English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, German and Brazilian Portuguese and ability to shop in 25 currencies.

“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 vice-president of Amazon Exports and Expansion, Samir Kumar.

Customers can simply download the free Amazon Shopping App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and they will automatically be placed into the International Shopping experience.

Those who already have the Amazon Shopping App can simply go into their settings within the app, choose the ‘Country & Language’ option and select ‘International Shopping’ in the country picker.

They 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 experience displays 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.

Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. More information www.amazon.com/global. — Bernama
