Amazon Expands App And Browser Stores To Mexico

June 30, 2015 - Written By John Anon

Amazon might be one of the biggest online retailers in the world, but that does not mean that they operate everywhere in the world. In fact, they actually do not operate in a number of regions  that you might expect and ones which are much closer to home than you might think. A prime example of this is Mexico. Bordering, what is certainly Amazon’s biggest market, the U.S., Amazon has yet to fully offer their wares to the folks south of the border. That was at least, until today, as Amazon has now officially announced the availability for Mexico residents to order from Amazon online, both via their browser sites as well as through the official Amazon app for android.

To be clear, some items, such as some of the Kindle range of devices have been available through the Kindle Store in Mexico for awhile. However, now residents will be able to choose from the wide range of physical goods on offer through Amazon, massively expanding on what was available before today. For those more browser based, the new Spanish-language Amazon.com.mx will be the place residents will want to go to check out what they can now order. While there, it is also worth pointing out that today’s announcements states that customers will be able to make use of free shipping on all orders over MXN 599.

In addition, and to mark the launch, Amazon have also announced three Kindle e-readers will be available through the Amazon stores in Mexico. These consist of the MXN 1,499 Kindle, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite, and the Kindle Voyage. Not to mention, that as already noted, residents will now be able to use the Amazon android app (available from the Play Store) to make their purchases from any android devices. However, for those looking for more digitally based content, like what is on offer from Amazon Instant Video, the press release does not provide any information on when (or even if) this service will become available. Instead, the announcement seems to focus on the ability to purchase physical based goods for now. Either way, those interested in reading the press release in full, can do so by clicking the source link below.
