Amazon Singapore launch Prime membership

07 December 2017

This is an interesting move by Amazon as they're clearly targeting some 600 million Singapore residents, but they still don't have their own Amazon country site.

Jamil Ghani, Vice President of Amazon Prime International said that Singapore Prime members can expect more added benefits in the future.

Prime, a membership service that gives users complimentary two-day shipping and access to discounts and deals, is already live in Japan, China and India.

The United States of America, based firm arrived in Singapore, its initially showcase in Southeast Asia, in the month of July at first offering Prime Now, its web-based business benefit with an electric two-hour conveyance window.

The service, which offers free two-hour delivery from its local warehouse with a minimum order of $40, is now exclusive to Prime members.

The catch here is that the global range of over five million products is only available within the Prime Now app itself.

Fans of gaming and video-streaming service Twitch will also be able to enjoy gaming perks, free channel subscription and commercial-free viewing.

Amazon has just extended its e-commerce tendrils even deeper into the Singapore market.

Speaking about the launch of Amazon Prime, Jamil Ghani, vice-president of Amazon Prime International, said, "Prime membership is created to offer the best of Amazon".
