Amazon takes a step towards internationalization

Amazon took a step towards internationalisation. The Amazon mobile app can now be switched to international shipping mode, which allows customers in markets where Amazon does not have a local presence to see products that can be shipped to their location. The app also calculates shipping and handling costs and import fees. In most locations, these additional costs are quite expensive, detracting from the attractiveness of the new feature. Moreover, the list of products that can be shipped in international shipping mode is still limited.
