Taking directly on the like of Olx and Quikr, Amazon.in has announced ‘Local Finds’, a service which enables customers on Amazon.in to sell their used and new products with Amazon facilitating delivery and payments. Through Local Finds, customers can buy and sell across multiple categories including books, video games, music, movies, mobiles, tablets, laptops, accessories, fashion, home decor and more. Delivery and payments are facilitated by Amazon India such that customers need not spend their time and money in meeting strangers or answering calls and texts.

This service was piloted in Bengaluru with around 600 sellers earlier this year. Over the last few months, over 30,000 customers have used this service, and amazon.in has now expanded the service to 3 more cities - Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai.

As an introductory offer, customers can avail free delivery along with cash-back (up to Rs 100) as Amazon Pay Balance for jewellery, apparel and home decor purchases worth Rs 500 or more on Local Finds. Individuals and home entrepreneurs selling on the platform for the first time can earn up to Rs 500 extra for selling more than five products.
