The China branch of U.S.-based tech company Amazon.com Inc said on Wednesday that the suspension of Amazon's Appstore services will not affect any of the company's business operations in China, including Amazon Global Store, Amazon Global Selling and Amazon's official website in China, Amazon.cn.
Amazon Appstore has sent an email to its customers, saying Amazon China will no longer provide app store services starting July 17. The Appstore is for users to download games and mobile applications for their Android devices.
Chinese consumers can continue to download the Amazon Global Store app, Amazon's cross-border shopping platform, via their mobile phones to enjoy a wide range of high-quality products and a convenient shopping experience at preferential prices, Amazon China said in a statement.
"We will continue to innovate and invest where we can provide value to our customers through our businesses, products and services. Our businesses in China include Amazon Global Selling, Amazon Global Store, Amazon Advertising, Amazon Global Logistics, Amazon Web Services, and Amazon Devices and Services," it said.
