For everything there is Amazon. Looking to take a new mobile connection and lazy to go to a mobile shop for that? Well, now you can buy a new SIM card directly from Amazon India sitting right on your couch. The best part, SIM cards will be delivered and activated right at your home or office.
Amazon India is trying to expand through some unchecked e-commerce territories. The latest endeavor by the company is the selling of both Indian telcos and International SIM cards through its e-commerce portal. On Indian telcos, Amazon India is selling postpaid connections of Airtel and Vodafone India. Whereas, for International SIM cards there are a couple of providers.
Airtel has been already offering its doorstep SIM delivery and activation, but it’s limited to a few pin-codes across India. With the new linking to Amazon India, the telco can reach out more location and more people. For Vodafone India, who currently don’t have any doorstep delivery of SIM cards service can hugely benefit from this partnership.
Currently, on Amazon India, you can either get a new Airtel Postpaid mobile connection (here) with its myPlan Infinity postpaid plans or Vodafone India postpaid mobile connection (here) with its RED postpaid plans. You can choose any telcos SIM card, while Amazon India will make sure it’s delivered and activated right at your home or office within 24-hours.
For Airtel Postpaid connection, you can choose between the four myPlan Infinity Postpaid plans. This includes Rs 499, Rs 799, Rs 1199 and Rs 1599 plans, which comes with unlimited calls and a generous amount of 4G data benefits. Do note that there is a one-time activation charge of Rs 200 which will be collected at the time of purchase of the SIM cards from Amazon.
If you are looking for a new Vodafone SIM card, then you can choose from six RED postpaid plans. This includes Rs 499, Rs 699, Rs 999, Rs 1699, Rs 1999 and Rs 2999 RED plan which comes with unlimited calling and data benefits. There is a one-time activation fee of Rs 15 to purchase the connection from Amazon India.
