Earlier this year, Amazon was scheduled to launch in Singapore, but later postponed their debut. But after months of rumors and speculations, we might finally be seeing its entry to Singapore as early as this week.

Amazon Prime Video already launched last Dec, streaming hot original series' like The Grand Tour featuring TopGear favorites Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the award-winning Transparent, as well as fantasy series based on Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name, American Gods. According to leading tech news website Techcrunch, the e-commerce giant will be launching Amazon Prime, Amazon Prime Now fast delivery and Amazon's regular e-commerce services.

To make things even more obvious, a couple of Instagrammers posted sponsored photos of what looks like a package of goodies labeled with a sticker that says "#dontsaybojio" and an image of that distinctive arrow in Amazon's logo yesterday (Jul 25).

While there is no official date on the launch of Amazon’s services in Singapore, we’re pretty sure it’ll arrive faster than you can say “online shopping”.
