Amazon starts operations in Turkey


Amazon has launched Amazon Turkey on September 19, 2018, offering products in 15 categories to customers across the country. They will sell books, electronics, tools, toys, and baby goods, among other lines, including ranges from over 1,000 Turkish businesses.

Alpagut Cilingir, Head of Seller Services for Amazon’s Turkish operation, commented: “The new service would level the playing field between big and small businesses and empower local companies of any size to grow their business online.”

In Turkey, Amazon adds a nation of more than 80 million people to the markets it already operates in. Customers across Turkey can visit to shop from a selection of millions of products, with the benefit of everyday low prices and reliable free delivery for orders above TRY50 (€8).

“We are investing in helping sellers become successful – continually building tools that do the heavy lifting to help them to sell more,” added Cilingir
