Amazon Prime is the popular subscription service in the US that offers guaranteed 2-day delivery without paying extra for every order on Amazon.
I came across a few pieces of evidence which indicate the same Amazon India is going to introduce the same Prime service in India on its third anniversary next month.
Now already Amazon India is providing one day, two days guaranteed deliveries for selected products. But for this, we have to pay additional charges Rs. 100 for one-day delivery and Rs. 50 for two-day delivery for every order that supports those fast deliveries.
Once the Amazon Prime service becomes real in India, we no need to pay additional charges for every single order. Instead, we have to subscribe to the Amazon Prime service on a monthly basis or yearly basis depending on our interest.
In the US Amazon Prime service costs $99 per year (Rs. 6645) and for a monthly subscription, it costs $ 10.99 (Rs. 737). But once the service became available in India, Amazon may make it more affordable by considering the Indian cost of living.
The source code of the Amazon India website is clearly indicating the arrival of Amazon Prime service. The source code itself is stating this.
“Introducing Amazon Prime: FREE Guaranteed Two-Day Delivery
With Amazon Prime, you get fast delivery on lakhs of eligible items. No minimum order size
Start your 30-day free trial.”
Not only source code, Amazon has already added the Amazon Prime Terms & Conditions page to the website. All these changes confirm the Amazon Prime’s arrival to the Indian market. In the beginning, the service will be available in the Metro cities only.
