Amazon has launched its premium Prime service in India. Subscribers of this service will get additional benefits on top of their usual shopping experience.
One of the perks of subscribing include is free One-Day delivery, something that would otherwise cost the customer INR 100 per order. There is now also free delivery on all products and you no longer have to purchase something costing INR 500 and above to get free delivery. Customers in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and select other cities also get discounts on Same-Day delivery.
Prime subscribers also get 30 minute early access to Lightning deals and member-only exclusives.
Amazon will also be bringing its video service, including movies and TV shows, to India at a later date as part of the Prime subscription.
Amazon is offering the Prime service at an introductory price of INR 499 ($7.4) per year, with free 60-day trial.
the pricing in amazon india is sometimes a bit skewed..some sellers like cartoindia sell stuff at as high as 500% of their US dollar price...maybe amazon should look into this..atleast put in a report button
Amazon is the worst e-retailor because many of time when I book any stuff from it, the message says that SORRY, WE CAN'T DELIVER THIS PRODUCT TO YOU. This message blinks after the message THIS PRODUCT WILL DELIVER TODAY, PLEASE KEEP YOUR MONEY READY....
By far, Amazon is the only E-retailer in india I like the most! I've always hated Flipkart and snapdeal! They can never match and get up to the level of Amazon (in terms of Product pricing or delivery of quality Products)! You're the best Amazon!
