Amazon Prime launched in India

Amazon India today finally launched  Amazon Prime subscription service in India. Users can sign up for Amazon Prime  on Amazon website, starting with a 60-day free trial. If you sign up now, Amazon Prime will cost Rs. 499 for a year after the 60 day trial, though the usual price for Amazon Prime in India will be Rs. 999 per year.

Amazon Prime includes in India, you may be in for disappointment. As of now, Amazon Prime in India only includes unlimited one-day and two-day delivery with no minimum order size and early access to some deals on Amazon as well as some Prime-members only deals. Other benefits available to Prime members in the US like Amazon Video and Amazon Music - the shopping giant's video and music streaming services respectively - are not available in the country yet, though Amazon says the former "is coming".

 Amazon Prime members will not qualify for free delivery on all products but only on products with the Prime logo next to them. A vast majority of the 'fulfilled by Amazon' products should be eligible for free shipping under Amazon Prime. Right now, Amazon charges Rs. 40 for 'standard delivery' (between 2-10 days, depending upon the product) unless the order contains 'fulfilled by Amazon' products worth Rs. 499 or more. One-day and two-day delivery are charged Rs. 100 and Rs. 80 respectively.

Enjoy unlimited FREE fast delivery
Guaranteed One-Day and Two-Day delivery with no minimum order size
Grab the best deals first and shop exclusive offers
30-minute Early Access to Lightning Deals, and member-only exclusives

Amazon Prime members will not get shipping on all those orders for free and will need to pay just Rs. 50 for same-day, morning, and scheduled deliveries, against a charge of Rs. 150 for non-Prime members.
