The world's biggest online marketplace is coming to South Africa - and local competitors may have their work cut out for them.  

According to documents seen by Business Insider, Amazon plans to roll out its online marketplace in South Africa in February. MyBroadband has reported that Amazon is securing warehouse space, which will presumably house products for distribution. How it will get products to clients has not yet been confirmed, but it is also expected to sell products on behalf of third parties on its local platform.

Amazon wants to launch its full Prime service later in 2023. The Prime service involves paying a monthly fee to get all your Amazon online shopping delivered for free. In addition, Prime members also get free access to thousands of movies and TV shows through Prime Video, as well as the Kindle book library, games and music.
