Amazon Prime is in India now. Well, it’s best summarized by Amazon itself: Amazon fulfilled + free fast delivery.
Amazon Prime users will be able to get free shipping for anything they order with no price cap and they will also be able to secure one or two day deliveries for free. There will be 30-minute early access to new deals too.
All this will cost them Rs 499 per year. As a promotion, there is a 60-day free trial period to make this popular among the Indian customers. This Rs 499 is a Rs 500 discount on list price of Rs 999 per year for the service. At an additional cost Prime users will get morning delivery in up to 20 cities. Not everything will be eligible for Prime, so you will need to look for the Prime logo against products.
Amazon Prime Videos is also be available for those buying into the service now. This Amazon prime is very popular in major countries like United States.
Amit Agarwal – Vice-President & Country Head, Amazon India says “With Prime, guaranteed one-day delivery becomes an everyday experience instead of an occasional indulgence, and with no minimum purchases, it provides unlimited convenience all year long”.
But what it actually is another big blow for Flipkart, the homegrown E-commerce giant which bought Jabong recently through its Myntra units.
