HYDERABAD: More than 31,000 sellers from Telangana and 5,100 from Andhra Pradesh are putting their products on sale during Amazon India’s ‘Great Indian Festival’, starting from October 3.
Amazon said on Wednesday that its commitment to support small and medium businesses continues on its Great Indian Festival platform, which is dedicated to lakhs of small sellers, including over 75,000 local shops from 450 cities.
This year, Amazon customers can shop for products from businesses based in Hyderabad, Warangal, Khammam, Nalgonda, Gadwal, Mahaboobnagar, Visakhapatnam, and Tirupati, from among several towns and cities in the two Telugu states. They will also have a wide range to choose from the over 8.5 lakh dealers from across India. Prime members, the company said, can enjoy early access to the festival.
