Amazon will lever doorstep pickup and shipping and Sell as Individual makes you sell used goods over Amazon.
Amazon has just hurled a new service named Sell as Individual, which permits you to retail your used goods. The service is currently only accessible in Bengaluru. With Amazon Sell as Individual, you can trade products nearby in your city, and Amazon delivers doorstep pick-up, packaging, and delivery of used goods you are selling.
To sell a company product, just visit Sell as Individual page and you need to fill in a small form, where you select the specific category of the product, price, photo and the pickup particulars. Though there is a city chooser in a drop-down list of options, Bengaluru is the only option in that menu at present.
When you have made your listing, the business product is registered on Amazon.in (as a used product), at the amount you have listed. Additional customers can now shop for it as standard, and make the buying. Amazon will then email you when the product is sold, and plan a pickup.
Then Amazon executive comes, collect the product, packs it, and ships it to the customer. In case the product it refunded by the buyer, Amazon will ship it back to you, at no cost. When the sale is over, Amazon will transfer the cash to you – minus a small fee.
Its charges appear pretty equitable – for products below Rs. 1,000 the fee is Rs. 10, for up to Rs. 5,000 it will be Rs. 50, and for items of bigger value, the fee is Rs. 100.
To endorse the service, Amazon is also offering Rs. 1,000 as Amazon Pay balance, if you sell 5 books, movies, video games, or music; or, if you sell one mobile phone, tablet, or laptop.
Excitingly, the FAQ, terms and conditions, and additional links on the Amazon Sell as Individual page lead you to website links on the Junglee website. On Junglee also, there is currently a banner ad for Sell as Individual, and the sell knob in Junglee’s navigation moves you to the similar sell page.
Amazon had hurled Junglee in 2012 before its entry to India, as a charge comparison website that aided discover sites through diverse e-commerce platforms.
In 2014, Quikr and Junglee partnered to show pre-owned product entries, and then in June 2016, Junglee tossed a pilot to straight facilitate the sale of used goods. It would seem that the business is currently folding this part of the commercial into Amazon, though we’re looking for official confirmation of this point from Amazon.
