Amazon to enter SEA, will launch in Singapore

After alleged plans last year to expand its presence in Asia, Amazon seems to be ready to launch in Singapore as early as this week, according to a report from TechCrunch. 


The Singapore launch will see Amazon Prime and Prime Now fast delivery in addition to Amazon’s regular service. Pricing has not been announced, and there has been no official statement from Amazon so far.

The Southeast Asian market has been dominated by Alibaba since its purchase of Lazada in 2016. This launch could potentially lead to Amazon entering the Philippine market later on, with Singapore as the main hub. We will just have to wait and find out.

    Wow, Amazon is getting closer, dreaming of the same thing that they would open locally here, because I like amazon prime, but the problem is the good’s delivery, shipping out from US to Manila is expensive and to say nothing of the cost of the peso as against the dollar, and not to mention that the service of Amazon is great if you stack it up against Lazada.

    Having said all that, I still use amazon daily to buy digital contents, and they do markdown expensive digital items regularly, and some are really steal, just keep tabs on your wishing list, and you would get surprised by the huge discounts now and then, and they give quality and classic Kindle books for free, because I was able to snap some of them for nothing.
