Amazon India Hits 120,000 Sellers

Amazon India has increased the number of sellers on its platform almost threefold this year. Amazon India now has 120,000 sellers, putting it ahead of its rival Flipkart, which has 95,000. The Indian ecommerce market is growing rapidly and the ecommerce sites are gearing up for the start of the sales season as Diwali approaches. Amazon recently embarked on an on-boarding programme called Amazon Tatkal, where executives travelled around India and helped sellers to sign up to the platform.
