Seattle based online mega store company has announced its arrival into India which could even change the destiny of online shoppers in India. Although currently the amazon’s store has only books, CDs and DVDs of movies only but soon amazon will look to expand their store by adding more categories.
The current limitation in the number of products is just a passing phase and we’d surely be coming across more and more products which would come into our lives soon. Amazon’s store in india sells only books, DVDs and CDs of different movies and television series’s which is quite a disappointment. Something I found was that the site does sell DVDs of popular TV shows such as Big Bang Theory and How I met your mother although all of the seasons are not available its still something to be cheer about. Some great Hollywood movie DVDs have been made available as well. Many of you may not know what to expect of amazon and let me tell you the when the time comes amazon would sell products ranging from grocery to mobile phones.
Presently the current book store in the site offers over 7 million books in various categories and the best part is you could preview the book by reading selected parts of the texts from the site which is something unique.
One of the main worries of Indian customers was if amazon would actually allow cash-on-delivery and that was given a nod and this could mean all the other online web stores in india might have to occupy the second slot. The returns option is valid on some products and they need to be sent back before 30 days and the product needs to be in good condition as well.
Amazon coming to india would surely provide the customer with vast selection, low price and fast and reliable delivery which is something unique and interesting.
The present Vice President and Country Manager of amazon in india Mr. Amit Agarwal was quick to say that “Amazon’s vision is to become a trusted and meaningful sales channel for retailers of all sizes across India, enabling them to succeed and efficiently grow their business online”
Online shoppers India who’re probably fed up with the inefficient service, late delivery and less selection might be more than happy to see Amazon, who is a worldwide seller with a lot of achievements to establish themselves in india and with Amazon coming to india we will have to wait and see what impacts they might have on the future of online shopping in India.
