Online shopping is the next best thing since Steve Job’s Apple software invention. For a busy person like me, I can’t barely find time to take a day off my work schedule to go to the mall and grocery store whenever I need something really urgent to purchase; so just imagine the convenience online shopping provides when I badly need some stuff. You can basically find almost all things on all consumer product categories—from antique furniture to sewing machines to electronics to home appliances to books, etc. If you don’t know where to begin your online shopping journey, I recommend you choose Amazon.com, Inc., one of the world’s leading Internet marketplaces and retailers.
Originally established as an online bookstore in 1994, Amazon.com, Inc. continues to deliver excellent wired services throughout the years, which enables the company to expand and operate across Europe, North and Latin America, and Asia. The multinational electronic commerce company has survived the online retail industry through the revenues it obtain from a small percentage of the total selling price of the items sold at Amazon and from advertising cost. There are millions of active Amazon users around the world, whether buyers or sellers, and this positive response the public gives to Amazon encourages the company to extend its reach to the consumer and to make online shopping accessible to everyone. In line with that standpoint, Amazon.com is able to corroborate with one of big players in the mobile operating system industry, Android. Those who are using Android phones such as the HTC and Samsung can now browse on Amazon.com on their mobile phones. This application is called the Amazon App Store for Android.
Here are the simple instructions on how to get Amazon App Store on your Android.
Step 1. Go to Amazon.com webpage and create an account.
Step 2. Open your Android device and go to Settings and then click Applications.
Step 3. Tick the box for Unknown Sources.
Step 4. The Attention dialog box will prompt. Click OK. Notice the green check on the Unknown Sources box.
Step 5. Open your e-mail or the SMS that was sent to you after registering on Amazon. Click the link and the Amazon App Store application will automatically download.
Step 6. Once the download has been completed, open the notification box and click the “Amazon_Appstore.apk” and install.
Step 7. After installation, restart your device for changes to be effective.
Step 8. Open the Amazon App Store icon and shop away.
The steps in purchasing at Amazon.com are similar on the webpage, but having the application on your mobile makes shopping more convenient and stress-free.
