Amazon Prime Day is yet another example of the ecommerce wars being fought in India. With a potential multibillion dollar market at stake and the impending rollout of the GST (Goods and Service Tax), ecommerce players such as Flipkart and Amazon are going all out to retain their customers in a variety of ways, that include more than discounts. Flipkart has gone fashion-centric, even launching its own ethnic women’s wear label – Divastri – as well as instituting platform-wide sales from Myntra, Jabong, and Flipkart. With Prime Day, the company looks to play on user sentiments of exclusivity and premium content to keep the momentum going.
