Online Shoppers Rejoice ‘Cuz Amazon Prime Is Coming!
Online shoppers (us included!) will do a little jig of joy on reading this bit of news. Tech blog Maktech has discovered that Amazon Prime — Amazon.com’s beloved membership program — is reportedly launching in India this month.
While Amazon India hasn’t officially made the announcement, Maktech says it took a look at the site’s source code and discovered a dedicated landing page for Amazon Prime. While the landing page hasn’t been activated yet, we’re pretty excited for it to go live. Till that happens, let’s break this down for you so you know exactly what you’re entitled to with this service.
The service has an annual membership fee, and once users have signed up they can receive product deliveries within two days flat. What’s more, it’s a guaranteed delivery on Amazon’s part. With this feature, you don’t have to wait for several days for your package to arrive. Moreover, users will also be eligible for free deliveries across different items with no specific order size! Hyperventilating, yet?
In the US, Prime members also enjoy exclusive access to movies and TV shows, ad-free music, unlimited photo storage, and Kindle books. The fee is $10.99 monthly and $99 annually, but sources tell TOI that pricing in India could be lower initially to crack our price sensitive market.
While Amazon India has said it does not comment on “rumours and speculation”, if Maktech’s revelation is anything to go by we just might have an amazing shopping experience in store for us this month. We’ll just have to wait and watch!
