Amazon - The history
Amazon was founded by Jeff Bezos in 1994. At first, the company was an online bookstore - you could buy and sell books on the platform. It didn't take long and just after a few years, the assortment was expanded to include computer hardware, electronics, furniture and a few years later - DVDs, which were very popular at the time. Soon after, even groceries and many other goods could be bought on Amazon. Amazon branches are now thriving in Canada, UK, Germany, France, China, Japan, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Poland and other countries. Delivery of ordered goods is theoretically possible worldwide, but in practice there is a whole system of restrictions on the destination countries for an order.
The 2000s saw even more growth for the company. In 2015, Amazon announced plans to enter the movie market. In 2019, the company was ranked the 4th largest retailer in the world. At that time, its revenue was recorded at the amount of $118.573 billion. In our country, Amazon is breaking more and more popularity records mainly due to its wide sales offer and attractive prices. In 2021 we will most probably see a fully operational platform in Polish. More marketplaces will be added as Amazon grows at an incredible pace and will probably be in every country
An interesting fact is that the name of the company, which in English means the Amazon River, was chosen by Jeff Bezos in reference to the planned scale of the flow of goods through his online store.
