Updated on July 17, 2017

What Is Amazon Website All About

I always encounter this in google especially if I am searching for something and I really got curious as to what is this website all about and as to what are the things that I can find on this website.

Finally, one day I tried to open the site to view what's min there and I saw cute stuff. I know right away that it sells online. Meaning I can do online shopping thru this website but I got disappointed when I tried to order because some products can't be ship to our country, Philippines. Nevertheless, It is not a hindrance for me to know more of amazon. com

Getting Curious on Amazon's History

I've searched as to where, when, what and how Amazon works and I found out that, Inc. is an American commerce and cloud computing company that was founded on July 5, 1994 by Jeff Bezos and is based in Seattle, Washington.

It is the largest Internet- based retailer in the world by total sales and market capitalization. Amazon started online bookstore, later diversifying to sell DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs, video downloads/ streaming, MP# downloads/ streaming, audio book downloads/ streaming, software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys, and jewelry.

The company also produces consumer electronics- notably, kindle e-readers, fire tablets, fire TV, and Echo- and is the world's largest provider of cloud infrastructure services. Amazon also sells certain low end products like USB cables under its in-house brand Amazon Basics.
