Amazon India is engaged in a battle with Flipkart for leadership position in the India’s e-commerce market. While Flipkart’s fresh set of arsenal in the form of funding from Walmart acquisition to challenge the Seattle-based company, Amazon will continue to appeal to customers via Prime members. Apart from 2-hour and one-day delivery, Amazon Prime subscription also gives free access to Prime Video and Amazon Music.
