These officials have admitted that spending in India is a drag on global business of Amazon.
The e-commerce giant has been forcefully rolling out its leading international goods here at a reduced rate to get in front of competitor Flipkart. Most lately, the firm added Rs 1,950 Crore into its main India body, indicating the significance it carries to the domestic market here. The e-commerce behemoth has invested $3 Billion into India via Amazon Seller Services, which operates the online market in the country.
Amazon has also made noteworthy spending in other subsidiaries of its Indian processes in the regions of payments, logistics, and wholesale distribution, amongst others. After an early spending promise of $2 Billion, Jeff Bezos (founder & CEO of Amazon) elevated the share for India by more $3 Billion couple of years ago.
