American e-commerce giant Amazon is now officially in Turkey. The website of the e-commerce giant's sales platform in Turkey has recently been announced. Amazon will run its activities in Turkey on www.amazon.com.tr. When you visit the website, it currently redirects to German version www.amazon.de, but all the contents on the site are presented in Turkish to the consumers in Turkey as Amazon has been offering services in Turkish since last November.
Amazon.com is a U.S.-based e-commerce and cloud computing company, founded by Jeff Bezos on July 5, 1994, in Seattle, and it is on Forbes' most innovative companies list.
Operating with 341,000 employees worldwide with annual sales of $135 billion, the company's market value for 2017 is $427 billion.
The greatest support for Amazon, which took a big step in its official entry into the Turkish market, came from Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Şimşek who used his social media account to evaluate Amazon.com's move, which found coverage in both domestic and international media.
