ecommerce has revolutionized the world of retail, opening new channels and opportunities for retailers of all sizes. in the past, opportunities for many small to medium businesses ended at the borders of their own country, and international trade was only for large multinational corporations. today, the global marketplace provides opportunities for companies of all sizes.
you can take advantage of this phenomenal growth in internet sales by expanding globally with amazon. today's consumers are all over the world and technologically savvy, and they enjoy shopping online to purchase a wide variety of products. we have online marketplaces around the world—united states, germany, united kingdom, france, italy, spain, canada, china, and japan—and the services and tools to help you through the global selling process.
the prospect of selling internationally can be intimidating, especially with the presumed time and monetary investment needed to expand. however, international expansion can be as straightforward as testing your products in new online marketplaces through exports or delving further into expansion by developing a localized website. the opportunity for international success is there, and amazon can work with you to help you find the best approach for your business.
