Full Description


Amazon.com, a Fortune 500 company based in Seattle, Washington, is the global leader in e-commerce. Since Jeff Bezos started Amazon.com in 1995, we have significantly expanded our product offerings, international sites, and worldwide network of fulfillment and customer service centers. Today, Amazon.com offers everything from books and electronics to tennis rackets and diamond jewelry. We operate sites in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, Italy, and China (Joyo.com) and maintain over 50 fulfillment centers around the world which encompass more than 26 million square feet.

Amazon.co.uk, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, was launched in 1998. Today, the site provides fast, convenient service for customers in the UK, Ireland and beyond and offers many of the same customer features offered on Amazon.com, including personalized recommendations, wish lists and Amazon.co.uk Marketplace.

Technological innovation drives the growth of Amazon.com, offering our customers more types of products, more conveniently, and at even lower prices. We offer a personalized shopping experience for each customer, book discovery through “Search Inside The Book”, convenient checkout using “1-Click® Shopping”, and several community features like Listmania and Wish Lists that help our customers to discover new products and make informed buying decisions.

In 2000, Amazon.com began to offer its best-of-breed e-commerce platform to other retailers and to individual sellers. Now, big-name retailers work with Amazon Services to power their e-commerce offerings from end-to-end, including technology services, merchandising, customer service, and order fulfillment. Other branded merchants also leverage Amazon.com as an incremental sales channel for their new merchandise; you can find products from top retailers across our retail site. Finally, independent software developers also derive value from the platform–through Amazon Web Services–by building profitable applications and services that cater to Amazon.com customers and sellers.
