A Amazon announced on Tuesday, 11, an international shopping store in Brazil.

Consumers will be able to use the payment methods available in Brazil, such as boleto and credit card with installments up to ten times. In addition, all products will have the value already converted from dollars to reais. Prime customers will have free shipping on products bearing the Prime seal. “Our focus is to make the borders imperceptible for our customers, providing Brazilian consumers with a positive international shopping experience with a wide selection of products, greater speed of delivery and easier payment method”, explains Tiago Abel, leader of retail operations at Amazon Brazil.
