Amazon.in has added Mobiles and Accessories, Cameras and Photography, and Portable Media Players to its newly-launched store in Indian market. With this announcement, there are now six categories of products on Amazon.in including Books, Movies and TV shows and the Kindle family of ebook readers, ebooks and Kindle Fire tablets.
Amazon.in was launched in India on June 5 selling books, movies and TV shows, with the Kindle Paperwhite ebook reader and Kindle Fire HD range of tablets following soon after.
Besides the new addition, when we checked the site we also found tablets, laptops, and related accessories listed on the site. Similar to the Amazon US marketplace, one can filter products based on categories, brands, new arrivals, price range, seller, and availability. They can also sort out the results based on relevance, popularity, price, average customer review and newest arrivals.
On the product page, the company allows sellers to upload more than one picture of the device, and include information such as stock available, product description, technical details, warranty and support, customer reviews and ratings.
Amazon.in features a wide range of products from leading manufacturers being sold by prominent third-party retailers. Some orders are fulfilled by Amazon, though some may be fulfilled by the vendors themselves. Most items have multiple sellers, and consumers can check who will fulfil the order before buying. Fulfilment of an order constitutes shipping the products, keeping the customer informed about its progress, and processing returns, if any.
The company claims that it now features 20,000 products from 150 Electronics retailers including Croma, Vijay Sales, UniverCell, Saholic, and J.J. Mehta & Sons. When we checked it listed electronic products from brands like Nokia, HTC, Micromax, Blackberry, Samsung, Sennheiser, Panasonic, Sony, Canon and Nikon among others.
Items fulfilled by Amazon feature additional benefits to the customer including cash on delivery, delivery tracking to the doorstep, and free returns pickup. As a limited period launch promotion, customers will enjoy free delivery with no minimum order value on all orders fulfilled by Amazon.
