The store is set to be launched in Kenya, South Africa, Ghana and Zimbabwe, among others.
Last year the online retail firm expanded the store into the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan.
The latest expansion, once completed, will mean the Amazon Appstore will be available in more countries than Google’s Play Store, though no specific timeframe has yet been announced, with the company only saying it will be finalised “in the coming months”.
The company is inviting developers to submit their apps for distribution across the newly added countries by visiting the Amazon Mobile App Distribution Portal.
“Developers throughout the world are experiencing strong monetisation and user engagement through Kindle Fire and the Amazon Appstore,” the company said in a statement.
“Amazon’s platform is a complete end-to-end solution for developers wanting to build, market and monetize their apps and games on Kindle Fire and Android devices,” said Mike George, vice president of apps and games at Amazon.
“Allowing developers to target distribution of their apps and games in even more international countries is yet another important milestone as we strive to serve consumers and developers globally.
“Many of our existing developers have localized their apps and games for international consumers, and we look forward to working with new developers that have been waiting to bring their apps to more Amazon customers across the globe.”
