Amazon brings Prime to China

Monday 31 October 2016 | 09:30 CET | News
Amazon has introduced Amazon Prime in China, Bloomberg reported. The service over there will cost CNY 388 per year (USD 57), lower than the US free of USD 99. The version of Prime in China will however not completely reflect the US version: it will not include any digital content (video, music streaming) but instead give free shipping on orders of over CNY 200 (USD 29.50) from 28 October, from a vast catalogue of overseas products.
