Amazon launches in Spain
14.09.11 | Graeme Neill
Amazon has launched a Spanish website, although Spanish readers will have to wait to get their hands on the Kindle.
The site, Amazon.es, went live today (14th September) and is offering books in Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Basque. Products have a minimum discount of 5% and there is free delivery for purchases above €19 (£16.49).
Sources told the Spanish press the Amazon Kindle and e-books will be made available before the end of the year.
The Spanish site joins Amazon's other websites for the US, Canadian, English, French, Italian, Chinese and Japanese markets.
Amazon c.e.o. Jeff Bezos said: "For us, Spain is a new beginning that gives us the chance to grow by adding products and categories."
