Amazon UK is the leading online retailer in the United Kingdom specializing
in books, dvds, games, music and online shopping services for both new and used
The world wide leader in retail is Amazon.com - Amazon UK is one of
six global sites for regional markets and leads the country's Internet retail
sector. Initially dominating the US sector Amazon's UK web store's origins were
in Bookpages an independent online book store which was acquired by the US Amazon
company in 1998. By late 1998 the UK Amazon book store was launched offering
over 1,400,000 titles to online customers within the UK -they were determined
to offer the widest range of choice at low prices. Within a year of launch Amazon
UK reported annual sales of £100 million and their 1,000,000 customer soon afterwards.
Expansions in their book stock were largely increased in late 2003 with an alliance
with the British Library, which added 2,500,000 titles many of which were rare,
antiquarian and pre-ISBN* books for online purchase. In early
2005 Amazon's partnership with Talis (which has links with most UK libraries)
enabled libraries a way of recycling stock and gave Amazon a further large increase
in the range of used and collectable publications on offer.
Whilst Amazon books is an integral part of their online product range
the company is not just about books! They also offer an amazing range of products
in many other areas with increased diversification happening year on year. Amazon
music UK was launched in October 1999 amid much eager anticipation followed
closely by Amazon shopping via Amazon Auction & Amazon zShops. A few months
later in early 2000 the Amazon film section of the UK site was launched,
quickly followed by their PC and video games section of the site in July of
the same year. Amazons most recent edition in late 2004 is the Amazon
DVD rental service. Driven by their ethos to become a place where people can
find and discover anything they might want to buy online Amazon constantly strengthen
their product selection and range. Amazon strives hard to be a truly
focussed customer company & remains one of the most popular UK sites with
