HI Jason/Dax and others …
The below info is some very rough google search info re other countries that amazon is operating in …I did a month or so ago ie early in 2015. As I said very rough so it is just to give you an idea of turnover or profit …in some instances it was not clear what the figure referred to (ie turnover or profit) but I think it is probably still useful. However, 1 thing that is very strange is the Australian turnover - I don’t seem to be able to find anything but books for this site and yet the turnover leads me to believe that there is more happening in this market - anyone know about this?
