The Amazon.co.uk is the 2nd largest Amazon storefront, and an easy stepping-stone for joining the other European Amazon programs - once you sign up with Amazon.co.uk, you’ll be able to join Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, and Amazon.es with ease by selecting the Programs you want to sign up for at the end of your Amazon.co.uk application process.
