As competition in the Indian e-commerce market gains steam, e-tailers are lining up discounts and lucrative deals for customers in limited-period sales schemes. Locking horns once again, e-commerce giants Flipkart and Amazon have announced special sales in the coming weeks, offering special prices for purchase of various products including mobiles, appliances, clothing and accessories. E-commerce giant Amazon’s aggressive expansion in India is expected to lead to added competition and a further rise in online shopping in the country, some analysts say.
Amazon is offering “big savings” on a variety of brands in its “Great Indian Sales” scheme. The Amazon India sales offer will open from May 11 to May 14. A check on Amazon’s website revealed that the e-tailer is offering up to 20 per cent off on Samsung products, while for Motorola and Lenevo products the discounts could be as high as 40 per cent and 33 per cent respectively.
