In March last year, the Government allowed 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in online retail of goods and services under the marketplace model but barred marketplaces from influencing pricing of products and services on their platforms, directly or indirectly. While this might have put few marketplaces to put sales on hold, Amazon told Indiaretailing in an earlier interview that the sales on their platform are completely discounted by the brands.
“We are a marketplace , we don’t offer any discounts directly or indirectly to the consumers. These discounts are done by brands and sellers, we have no role to play in discounts on the platform,” shared Category Leader, Amazon Fashion India, Mayank Shivam during Amazon’s EOSS.
The sale features range of top brands including Puma, Adidas, Reebok, British Knights, Desigual, rocs, Steve Madden, Hush Puppies, United Colors of Benetton, FCUK, Chemistry, GAS, Titan, Invicta, Fossil, Guess, Timex, Vero Moda, ONLY, BIBA, Ray-ban, Fastrack, Police, Hidesign, Stella Ricci, Malabor Gold & Diamonds, Joyalukkas, Gitanjali and many more offering maximum offers.
On the supply side, Amazon currently have 21 fully operational fulfillment centres (FCs) in India with an overall storage capacity of nearly 5 million cubic feet which help these sales to conduct smoothly and on time.
