  • The new catalog includes thousands of products from different countries;
  • Amazon Brasil also defined its new CEO, executive Daniel Mazini, who had previously worked at the company.

Amazon announced the launch of an “imported products shelf” on the website and in the app with free shipping for Prime service customers in Brazil. The new catalog includes thousands of products from different countries and categories, such as sports, books, music, electronics, beauty, fashion, pet and others.

The international purchases online store will enable Brazilian customers to buy items from foreign brands in the same interface in which they already buy national items. As the products are charged in Brazilian currency, the purchases can be paid with a bank slip or credit card, in installments up to tenfold.

In addition to the common payment methods in Brazil, the new feature will speed up delivery, since the deadline for international products offered in this new interface is shorter than the deadline taken by other international sellers on the platform.

The delivery deadline of international products will be the same for national products and can be made in up to one day depending on the region. In São Paulo, for example, orders placed until noon can be delivered on the same day. Products that are not available in inventory can be delivered within two weeks.

Amazon sets new manager for Brazil

Another novelty is the definition of the new country manager at Amazon Brasil, just over a month after Alex Szapiro left. Daniel Mazini returns to Amazon a year after he left the company to take over as product director at Brazilian neobank Neon. Mazini started his career at Amazon as a product manager in the United Kingdom in 2010, and participated in the launch and expansion of Amazon in Brazil.

On his LinkedIn, Mazini stated that being the country manager in Brazil is a “dream job” and said that “On this new role I will work with local and international teams to continue delivering the great growth and improvement of buying experience at Amazon.com.br.”
