Amazon.in is the new address if you are a avid reader and you want to buy the latest novels and non-fiction books. The common grouse of book readers was that the international books were not easily available in India and they had to scour the flea markets to get the latest release. Not anymore, Amazon’s India marketplace business has now gone live. Currently it is selling books, movies and TV shows, the store will quickly expand to add mobiles, cameras and more to the website.
India is Amazon’s tenth marketplace across the world and aims to provide Indian customers with a shopping destination to purchase products from third-party sellers. The marketplace will enable these sellers to list their products for customers locally and globally. They will also have access to a suite of services, including Selling on Amazon and Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) guarantee.
Right now there is a Free delivery with no limit for a limited time as a part of its promotion. After the promo period is over, the website will charge Rs. 49 per package for delivery and goods worth Rs. 499 and up will be delivered for free. Cash on delivery facilities are available with the website. If you have an existing Amazon.com account, you can use the same credentials to log-in to the Indian marketplace too.
Amazon already owns Junglee.com and plans on continuing it.
