Amazon.in announced the launch of Local Finds, a service which enables customers on Amazon.in to sell their used & new products with Amazon facilitating delivery and payments. Through Local Finds, customers can buy & sell across multiple categories including books, video games, music, movies, mobiles, tablets, laptops, accessories, fashion, home decor and more. Delivery and payments are facilitated by Amazon such that customers need not spend their time and money in meeting strangers or answering calls and texts.
Customers looking to buy a host of new and pre-owned books, old music discs, hand-crafted fashion and home accessories now have a one-stop-shop. From silk thread bangles & jhumkas made at home by local designers to classics, self-help & academic books from individuals to used electronics offering great value for money, Local Finds is home to diverse selection which otherwise is difficult to find under one roof.
This service was piloted in Bengaluru with around 600 sellers earlier this year. Over the last few months, over 30,000 customers have used this service, and amazon.in has now expanded the service to 3 more cities – Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai.
As an introductory offer, customers can avail free delivery along with cash-back (up to INR 100) as Amazon Pay Balance for jewelry, apparel and home decor purchases worth INR 500 or more on Local Finds. Individuals & home entrepreneurs selling on the platform for the first time can earn up to INR 500 extra for selling more than 5 products.
