My Gently Raised Beast, Vol. 1 – Amazon.com
I have a confession to make. I’m a bit of a hoarder. Not of things, but of experiences. As such, I have come to adore Amazon.com and its many offerings that allow me to explore the world from the comfort of my home. Whether it’s books, movies, music, or electronics; Amazon has something for everyone. That is why I decided to start My Gently Raised Beast – a blog series dedicated to exploring all the wonderful things Amazon has to offer. In this first installment, let’s jump right in and discover what makes this online marketplace so great!
The different types of Amazon.com
Amazon.com, Inc. is an American multinational technology company based in Seattle, Washington, that focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence. It is considered one of the Big Four technology companies along with Google, Apple, and Facebook.
There are three different types of Amazon.com:
1. The retail website – This is the original Amazon.com that started as an online bookstore and has since expanded to sell a wide variety of items from electronics to apparel to food.
2. Amazon Prime – This is a paid subscription service that gives members free two-day shipping on eligible items, as well as access to Prime Video and Prime Music.
3. Amazon Web Services – This is a cloud computing platform that offers businesses and individuals storage, computation, and other services.
There are many different types of Amazon.com, each with its own unique features and benefits. Here is a brief overview of the most popular types:
1. Amazon Prime: This is the premium membership option that gives you access to exclusive deals, free shipping, streaming services, and more.
2. AmazonFresh: This is the grocery delivery service from Amazon that offers fresh food and household items.
3. Amazon Pantry: This is a convenient way to stock up on groceries and household essentials without having to leave your home.

There are many different types of Amazon.com, but the two most popular are the US site and the UK site. The US site is the largest online retailer in the world, while the UK site is the second largest. Both sites offer a wide variety of products, but there are some differences between them.
The US site offers a wider range of products than the UK site. It also has a more user-friendly interface and offers free shipping on orders over $35. On the other hand, the UK site has a greater selection of books and music than the US site. It also offers free delivery on orders over £20.
When it comes to customer service, both sites are excellent. They offer 24/7 customer support and have a very efficient returns policy. Overall, both Amazon sites are great for shopping online. However, if you’re looking for a specific product, it’s worth checking out both sites to see which one has it in stock.
