Amazon.com Inc. has expanded its product offering to online shoppers in Brazil to include electronic items sold by third-party vendors, Reuters reported Oct. 18.
The e-commerce giant had been only selling books in the Latin American country since 2012.
Amazon will offer items including televisions, cell phones and laptops provided by independent sellers through its online marketplace in Brazil, according to the report. Purchases can be paid for in as many as 10 interest-free monthly installments.
The third-party electronics sellers will receive payments upfront, though a 10% commission will be paid to Amazon in addition to fees set on a per-month or per-item basis.
Amazon's Brazil country manager Alex Szapiro told Reuters that the current commission rate was a "promotional" amount but did not say what the final rate would be. He also declined to comment on whether Amazon plans to have its own electronics inventory or open a fulfillment center in the country, the report said.
