Amazon has confirmed that it will begin operations in Poland. The company has already begun to register companies to sell through its Polish site.

Amazon has been present in Poland since 2014 and currently has nine logistics centers in the country. But until now, customers have had to order through the Polish-language version of Amazon.de.

Rumors that Amazon was looking to expand into Poland have swirled over the past few years. Last year, Gazeta.pl reported the expansion would happen in November. That didn’t come to fruition, but the rumors intensified after Amazon started its search for a head of marketplace in Poland and tied up with local logistics firm InPost at the end of 2020.

The company confirmed its plans to launch in Poland in a news release sent to the media today. However, it didn’t specify when Amazon.pl will be launched.

“Amazon has been supporting Polish customers for many years and helping to sell products of Polish entrepreneurs in our European stores. The next stage is the introduction of a full retail offer for consumers in Poland and it is now time to take this step,” said Alex Ootes, Amazon’s VP of EU Expansion.

Amazon’s main competitor in Poland is Allegro.pl, which holds a dominant position in the Polish e-commerce market.
