Founded in 1994 the company initially envisaged selling only books online, but quickly developed into a seller of all things including gadgets, electronics, computers, home goods, watches, toys, luxury items, gifts and even food. Essentially if it's for sale, it's for sale on Amazon Dot Com.
The name was chosen as the founder wanted a name starting with the letter A and it must have a Z. The logo, which looks like a smile below the word Amazon, also points A to Z, to show that they literally sell everything. What separates Amazon is that they not only sell goods, but have become manufacturers of products too. Their Kindle is the current leader in the online ereader field. They also do memory cards, hdmi cables and a variety of other essential items as part of the Amazon basics range.
Further, they offer web services such as cloud computing, and services to other retailers.
Sadly most items on their website do not ship to South Africa, but this is where Have2Have gets involved and can assist in having virtually any item in stock and sold by Amazon Dot com delivered in South Africa.
