After making its way across the border, one of the largest e-commerce sites is ready to globalize its shipping service by this new feature.

It hasn’t been long since the e-commerce shoppers in Pakistan were blessed with the good news. India’s leading e-commerce site, Amazon, partnered with the leading e-commerce site in Pakistan,, to step its foot in Pakistan’s e-commerce industry.

Amazon’s new feature will make shopping for international customers easier:

Now one such amazing news is waiting for the international e-commerce shoppers. Even though, Amazon’s shopping and shipping services are available to countries like U.S., Western Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and Singapore. But now, it’s going to serve its services to more than 100 countries!

In order to globalize its shipping service, Amazon had introduced a new feature. Amazon’s new feature enables international shipping mode and provides the needed information to international shoppers.

Here are details about what Amazon’s new feature will do:

This will not only increase Amazon’s business but customers who don’t have access to Amazon’s market locally, can see if the there selected product is available for international shipping or not, through Amazon’s new feature.

Amazon’s application will also calculate additions such as shipping and handling costs and import fees.


Amazon’s new feature enables international shipping mode but without any major changes in the app:

The new feature is introduced as an effort to reduce international customer’s work, who previously had to scroll through products using a different Amazon country website (e.g. the U.S.) to find items that ship overseas.

But because this isn’t an international launch, therefore the actual selection of products and those additional charges — in particular, the dread ‘import tax’ segment — will remain as it is.

After hearing this, you might be thinking that Amazon’s new feature isn’t something big. But let’s remember that with this small effort for its international audience, Amazon is now accessible to more than hundred countries.
