US giant Amazon launches Polish site

03 Mar 2021, 16:13 GMT+10

US e-commerce giant Amazon on Tuesday launched in Poland - one of the last major European countries without a dedicated Amazon site.

"From today, Polish customers can buy on and choose from over 100 million products," the company said in a statement.

Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, said it would offer free shipping on orders worth more than $100 (83 euros).

Within the EU, Amazon has already dedicated sites in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.

Its German website had previously hosted a Polish-language section and the company employs around 18 000 people in nine warehouses in Poland and through the IT company Amazon Web Services.

Amazon is planning to open a 10th warehouse in Swiebodzin later this year with the creation of over 1 000 jobs.

Poland's e-commerce market is booming and homegrown retailer Allegro, which made the largest stock market entry in Europe in 2020, is currently the country's largest online marketplace.
