EBay throws shade at Amazon ahead of Prime Day

12 July 2018

Amazon is all set for its biggest sale of the year - Amazon Prime Day 2018 sale - that will start from July 16, and continue till July 17.

Amit Agarwal, senior VP and country manager, Amazon India, told BS, "Prime members in India can enjoy over 200 exclusive product launches, thousands of deals at the lowest prices of the year and blockbuster entertainment launches on Prime Video and Amazon Prime Music".

Besides these, there are some other smartphones too that are going to be available during the Amazon prime day sale. Amazon runs Prime Day primarily to drive up the number of members as it makes a substantial profit despite offering huge discounts to the customers.

Prime members will also be able to shop for new handicraft products such as Kalamkari Ikat, Pochampally & Banarasi Sarees, Ajrakh hand-block printed apparels and even tribal paintings and jewelry.
