Amazon has unexpectedly announced that it will close its Chinese website, amazon.cn, and its official app store in China on July 17, without giving any reason. Observers have said that it signals the U.S. e-commerce giant’s complete retreat from China and the Chinese regime’s further uncoupling from the West.
In an email on May 23, the official Chinese website of Amazon told users in China: “From July 17, Amazon China will no longer provide app store services. If you have any questions, please contact Amazon customer service.” Amazon already shut down its domestic e-commerce marketplace in China in 2019, citing the market dominance of domestic platforms.
An Amazon spokesperson said that the company will work closely with sellers to ensure a smooth transition and continue to provide the “best customer experience.”
