Amazon announced that customers across Turkey can now visit Amazon.com.tr to shop from a selection of millions of products, with the benefit of everyday low prices and reliable free delivery for orders above 50 TRY.
Amazon.com.tr features a vast selection of products across 15 categories, such as Books, Consumer Electronics, Sports, Outdoor, Tools, Toys, Home Improvement, and Baby, including products from over one thousand local Turkish businesses.
“Our mission at Amazon is to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online, at great prices. Since the launch of Amazon.com in 1995, hundreds of thousands of Amazon customers in Turkey have ordered millions of items from existing Amazon stores around the globe.
Today, we are thrilled to now offer Turkish customers a selection of millions of products, including products from over one thousand local Turkish businesses.
We are committed to building our business in Turkey in the coming months by expanding our selection and delivery options and providing excellent service, through which we hope to earn the trust of Turkish customers.”
Sam Nicols, Country Manager for Amazon.com.tr
Turkish customers can shop from anywhere, anytime with secure payments, no-hassle returns, and 24-7 customer service through the Amazon Shopping app, desktop browsers, and mobile browsers.
Customers can also track orders, contact customer service, read product reviews, or browse the growing selection at the time and place that suits them best.
At launch, Amazon is not offering Amazon Prime to Turkish customers. But if history repeats itself, that may just be a matter of time.
Business Opportunity for Turkish Entrepreneurs
Amazon.com.tr also offers growth opportunities for Turkish businesses of any size.
Amazon has invested billions of dollars in infrastructure and technical services that help small and medium-sized businesses reach new customers around the world.
With the launch of Amazon.com.tr, Turkish businesses can sell their products to customers across Turkey through their store with no product-listing fee.
Amazon offers businesses access to simple listing tools, 24/7 online seller support, transparent selling conditions and pricing, and reports and analytics to help them grow.
“eCommerce has the power to level the playing field between big and small businesses, empowering Turkish companies of any size to grow their business online. We are investing in helping sellers become successful – continually building tools that do the heavy lifting to help them to sell more.”
Alpagut Cilingir, Head of Amazon Seller Services for Amazon.com.tr
