Amazon.com, Inc. (/ˈæməzɒn/ or /ˈæməzən/) is an American international electronic commerce company with headquarters in Seattle, Washington, United States. It is the largest Internet based company in the United States. [11][12] Amazon.com started as an online bookstore, but soon diversified, selling DVDs, VHSs, CDs, video and MP3 downloads/streaming, software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys, and jewelry. The company also produces consumer electronics—notably, Amazon Kindle e-book readers, Kindle Fire tablets, Fire TV and Fire Phone — and is a major provider of cloud computing services.

Amazon has separate retail websites for United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Brazil, Japan, China, India and Mexico, with sites for Sri Lanka and South East Asian countries coming soon. Amazon also offers international shipping to certain other countries for some of its products.[13] In 2011, it had professed an intention to launch its websites in Poland,[14] Netherlands, and Sweden, as well.[15] An Austrian website
