A few weeks ago, we reported on a mysterious “Amazon India store” in Indore, where a few of the store’s products were shown off.
Today, the company is giving more details on the new store.
Amazon India stores are a “unique platform” that allows Amazon customers to purchase products directly from the company’s India headquarters, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said during the company-wide CEO forum.
Amazon’s India stores were previously exclusive to India, but now Amazon has expanded to more countries in Asia.
The new Amazon store is a “new addition” to the Amazon India ecosystem, Bezos said, and it will allow customers to buy all sorts of Amazon products, including apparel, books, games, and accessories.
It’s important to note that the Amazon store will only be available to Prime members.
“We think it’s really great for our Prime customers,” Bezos said.
“When we were talking about expanding to India a few months ago, there was a lot of excitement about bringing the Prime program to India.
The Prime store is our new addition to our Prime program.”
Prime members can now purchase all sorts on Amazon.com.
The Amazon India Store, which will be the largest in the world, will also include a video library and a video app.
The company’s other India stores, which are limited to Amazon’s Indian stores, will be expanded later this year.
Amazon announced a new video service earlier this month that will include videos from local filmmakers and other indie filmmakers.
