Global e-commerce giant Amazon has gone live in Indian market with the launch of Junglee.com. Junglee is an online shopping service powered by Amazon which enables customers to find and discover products from online and offline retailers in India and from Amazon.com global portal. Junglee organizes massive selection and multiple buying options from hundreds of sellers, and leverages Amazon’s proven technologies and millions of customer reviews to help customers make smart purchase decisions.
Customers can discover over 1.2 core products and 14,000 brands, and purchase items directly from hundreds of retailers including Homeshop18, UniverCell, Hidesign, Gitanjali, The Bombay Store, Fabindia, Bata India Limited, Dabur Uveda, Microsoft India Store, Reebok, and Amazon.com.
