Amazon India has finally launched its Prime subscription service in India. Amazon Prime in the country will offer free one day and two delivery to customers and early access to its exclusive offers.
Amazon Prime is now available for a free 60-day trial, after that the Prime service will cost Rs. 499, though the usual price will be Rs. 999 per year. Prime will be available to customers in 100 cities, and members in 20 cities can also choose same-day, morning or scheduled delivery at a discounted fee of Rs. 50 per order on over 10,000 products. These deliveries typically cost Rs. 150. There will be 30-minute early access to new deals too.
“We are very excited to bring Prime to our customers in India. 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. For sellers, Fulfillment by Amazon is now an even more powerful opportunity to rapidly grow their business and at the same time, provide customers across India with vast selection and unlimited fast free Prime delivery.”
