Amazon Singapore Drops

On October 8 of 2019, Amazon added a seventeenth regional storefront, Amazon Singapore, furthering its march towards global (retail) domination!

As far as we can tell, this is the fastest rollout of an affiliate program yet (Amazon UAE was quick, but it took them a day or two, and Amazon Australia’s affiliate program launch was many weeks delayed). Amazon.sg marks the fifteenth regional, public, and independent affiliate program that Amazon supports (only the Netherlands storefront doesn’t have an affiliate program while the Associates program for Turkey is currently private).
