Amazon is enabling thousands of Indian sellers to make the best of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the Christmas season in USA by providing millions of consumers residing in the US, access to a wide range of 'Made in India' products on Amazon.com.
More than 1,000,000 units of products across over 25,000 categories such as consumer durables, kitchen utensils and cookwares, clothing and fashion accessories, luxury items, home décor, travel bags, sports equipment etc. have already been shipped to Amazon Fulfilment Centres in the US to facilitate One-Two Day delivery at customers' doorstep through "Amazon Prime" program.
Sellers from India are also enabling expedited shipment for products to be shipped from India to their US customers within 3-5 days from date of order.
Gopal Pillai, Director and GM, Seller Services, Amazon India, said, "Our Global Selling program launched in May last year has witnessed phenomenal success in a short span of time and we have already empowered over 18,000 sellers through this program to have unprecedented reach across international markets and scale greater heights. In the past few months, Amazon has identified top selling products in the US, closely engaged with sellers to provide them insights on these bestsellers and has worked backwards to enable them to offer products in these categories to global customers at best prices. Indian sellers who participated in the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales last year witnessed growth in range of 2X to 10X for each of the 2 days and we expect a bumper season this year as well."
Pankaj Gupta owner of Rustic Town and a seller under this program, said, "Black Friday & Cyber Monday are very popular shopping days in the US and we have witnessed overwhelming response from customers for our products last season. We expect the same momentum to continue this year as well and are well stocked, geared-up and excited for the coming weekend."
