US e-commerce giant Amazon on Tuesday launched in Poland – one of the last major European countries without a dedicated Amazon site.
“From today, Polish customers can buy on Amazon.pl and choose from over 100 million products,” the company said in a statement.
Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, said it would offer free shipping on orders worth more than EUR 83 (roughly Rs 7,300) .
Within the EU, Amazon has already dedicated sites in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden.
Its German website had previously hosted a Polish-language section and the company employs around 18,000 people in nine warehouses in Poland and through the IT company Amazon Web Services.
Amazon is planning to open a 10th warehouse in Swiebodzin later this year with the creation of over 1,000 jobs.
Poland’s e-commerce market is booming and homegrown retailer Allegro, which made the largest stock market entry in Europe in 2020, is currently the country’s largest online marketplace.
