amazon prime internationalIn February of 2005, Amazon CEO announced a service called Amazon Prime. Consumers in the United States could obtain free 2-day shipping and discounted overnight shipping, for a yearly fee of $79.

This time of year is when companies hold their quarterly conference call, and Amazon was no different. In this call, it was revealed, Amazon announced their plan to bring the Amazon Prime service around the world. This program will start in Japan, and make its way throughout the world.
