The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing
Online shoppers in India may soon be able to collect their items from underground train stations.
From February, 10 Delhi Metro underground stations will have kiosks from which customers can pick up items they’d ordered online. The kiosks will be fitted with credit and debit card payment machines to allow users to pay then and there.
It has not yet been revealed which ecommerce sites will be distributing their items from the kiosks, although there is speculation that it may involve the country’s three biggest ecommerce sites: Amazon, Snapdeal and Flipkart.
The Indian ecommerce market is currently worth 11 billion US dollars and is growing rapidly, with online sales expected to reach 220 billion US dollars by 2025 according to estimates by Merrill Lynch.
