Amazon is the world’s largest online store with shipping capabilities of all over the United States. Although Amazon itself still does not allows Bitcoin in their transactions, third party applications like the purse.io Android and IOS apps do.

One could imagine the ease with which Amazon transactions can be easily completed using Bitcoin. With the capabilities of Bitcoin, buyers would be able to pay for goods on Amazon from virtually anywhere in the world. Shipping arrangements can later be made with other third party shipping companies for transporting the products across the world.

I can see many stumbling blocks here: first of all Amazon doesn't accept bitcoins directly
they don't and they made no statement they would in any foreseeable future
what Purse.io provides is a third party app that allows users to ,basically,trade bitcoins with each other
only the buyer pays with Amazon goods instead of money
so the buyer buys something at Amazon using their debit or credit card and the seller transfers him
the exact amount of bitcoins he spent for that item
so,how will the return policy work? what about the bonus points etc.
while this is certainly a good thing for bitcoin adoption,please come back to me when Amazon do accept bitcoins without any third party crotches
