Amazon open online store in Brazil


Amazon has launched its first online store in Brazil as the retailer looks to capitalise from a recent e-commerce boom in the region.

The online retailer opened an online Kindle store in the country with more than 1.4 million e-books, including 13,000 titles written in the Portuguese language.

The Kindle e-reader is also expected to go on sale in the country in the next few weeks, priced at R$299.

The Brazilian digital launch is the latest of Amazon’s attempts to offset stalling growth in the US and Europe by moving further afield into emerging markets.
