Amazon launches 'Global Store' and we have our initial shopping list ready

Amazon India announced the launch of "Global Store" in India formally ahead of the Diwali. The "Global Store" section was already available on Amazon India but the formal announcement took place yesterday.


Amazon India has launched its "Global Store" in India, formally, just ahead of Diwali. Although the "Global Store" section was already available on Amazon India, the formal launch announcement happened yesterday. The launch of the global store solves major hurdles around customs clearance and availability of shipping in India. On its part, Amazon purchases and clears customs to make way for a hassle-free shipment to your home.

In addition to clearing customs, Amazon enables a much faster international shipping at a much-discounted price through the global store. This end-to-end service including a considerably accurate tracking status of products to users is a far cry from other services, which do not take liability for the speed of shipping products like Alibaba or eBay.

We compiled a bunch of products that are not available on the Amazon India Store and can only be purchased using the Amazon Global Store.
