Amazon Italy Launched

Amazon has just launched Amazon Italy. With this Amazon's tally of country specific sites has increased to eight. Other countries are -- Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom and the USA.

Amazon Italy already has 2 million Italian and foreign language books, more than 450,000 CDs and more than 120,000 DVDs, in addition to video games, music, consumer electronics, software and toys. This gives Amazon Italy the distinction of having the biggest selection (with more categories) than any other Amazon site at launch.

To celebrate the launch buyers on Amazon Italy are being offered discounts of up to 30% on most books; as well as the opportunity to sign up for Amazon Prime which gives free 2-3 day shipping for a very low annual fee of just €9.99; plus a one month free trial. To compare, in the UK Amazon, Prime is next day delivery and costs £49.00 per year.

Those buyers's who don't sign up for Prime, will still be getting free shipping for all orders over €19.00. Amazon Italy will ship as standard for free to Italy, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican City. --------
