Things can get a bit tricky for international customers who want to shop on Amazon when the retailer doesn’t have a local presence in their country. In a bid to better cater to those customers, Amazon today announced that it’s improving its shopping experience for international customers so that it’s easier for them to buy Amazon products from outside the United States via the company’s mobile app.


Customers will now be able to browse Amazon on mobile in five different languages which include English, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and German.

Amazon will also display prices in 25 local currencies so that it’s easier for customers to not only browse the products but find out at a glance how much will it cost them in local currency. The world’s largest online retailer is certainly not going to stop here as it plans to add support for more languages and currencies down the line.

The mobile app will allow customers to filter products that are available for shipping to their particular country with shipping costs, pricing, and import duty estimates all clearly mentioned. Amazon is working with courier services for customs clearance so that the products can quickly make their way to customers across the globe.

Amazon has rolled out the new international shopping experience to its app for iOS and Android today. It remains to be seen which this experience will be expanded to Amazon on the web.
