Amazon launches marketplace site in India
New York -- Amazon has launched an online shopping site in India, but, in line with the nation’s rules, it will only be able to service other retailers.
The e-commerce giant has gone live with an e-commerce marketplace where local retailers can list books and DVDs under Amazon’s banner and use its delivery services to get them to buyers, according to The Financial Times. Amazon will start selling mobile phones and cameras within weeks.
Amazon has one warehouse outside of Mumbai and will use a mixture of its own couriers and local delivery trucks, the report said. Customers will be able to pay cash on delivery or by credit card online.
