Amazon launches new shopping experience for Kiwis

Amazon Launches the International Shopping Experience in the Amazon Shopping App

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.

The "international shopping experience" feature in its Amazon Shopping App is created to remove the frustration customers may feel when they see items listed on Amazon that they can't easily buy.

Amazon has launched the "International Shopping" experience within its existing mobile app, making it easier for Kiwis to purchase products from the online retailer by screening out items ineligible to ship to New Zealand.

The world's leading e-commerce website Amazon has just made it easy for global customers to shop from overseas.

"Customers will be able to browse and shop for products across categories including electronics, books, clothing, shoes, toys, and much more". While a local Amazon app is present in several countries, but it doesn't always let users purchase products outside their home markets - which essentially makes it hard for people to buy products sold by Amazon in the US.

The International Shopping Experience is available in English, Spanish, simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, and German, and it supports 25 different currencies, with more support coming later this year.

The app will show prices in New Zealand dollars as well as shipping costs and estimates for any "import duty" that may apply, Amazon said. Customers who already have the Amazon Shopping App simply need to go into their settings within the app, choose the "Country & Language" option and select "International Shopping" in the country picker. Remember, users will automatically see products that are eligible to be shipped to their selected delivery location, however, there may be some exceptions.

"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 USA", said vice-president of Amazon Exports and Expansion, Samir Kumar.
