Amazon India referred to the latest comScore data, which reports that the e-commerce site had nearly 30 million visitors in October. In comparison, Flipkart and Jabong got close to 20 million visitors, while Snapdeal trailed with around 15 million visitors.
Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos wrote a letter to all the company s customers thanking them. This customer response continues to amaze and energize us. We have built a vibrant marketplace with tens of thousands of sellers offering everyday low prices on India’s largest selection of over 30 million products and bringing alive our Aur Dikhao promise to customers, he wrote.
Bezos further said that the company will keep investing in its India operations. He had visited India in July last year to announce $2 billion investment in the company s India operations to counter the likes of Flipkart and Snapdeal. While details on further investments are scarce, recent reports suggest that Bezos could invest as much as $5 billion in India to launch services like Prime and Amazon Instant Video (AIV) among others.
Jeff Bezos letter follows.
Just two and a half years from our launch, Amazon.in has become the most visited e-commerce site in India. This customer response continues to amaze and energize us.
To celebrate and thank customers for their confidence in us, we are happy to announce an Amazon.in gift card of Rs. 200 for all customers who shop on Amazon.in today.
We have built a vibrant marketplace with tens of thousands of sellers offering everyday low prices on India’s largest selection of over 30 million products and bringing alive our “Aur Dikhao” promise to customers. We will keep growing our investments in India and continue to work hard for our Indian sellers and customers.
At Amazon, we like to say it is still day 1, and that is certainly true for us in India.
