To expand its presence in the e-commerce market, Amazon India has launched a specific store for used and refurbished smartphones. The new store offers a variety of handsets from several verified sellers.
Called “Used & Refurbished Mobiles Store”, the online store lists used as well as refurbished smartphones. While the used smartphone models come with features like cash on delivery, Amazon is offering six months warranty on professionally-restored refurbished handsets.
“Refurbished products undergo professional testing and restoration (if required) to meet brand specifications and will come in sealed brand packaging with all set of accessories,” explains Amazon India.
The store has so far listed affordable models such as Moto G Plus 4th Gen, Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, Samsung Galaxy J7, Xolo Era 4G and Asus Zenfone Max. It also includes flagship offerings like the OnePlus 2, Xiaomi Mi 4 and Apple iPhone 6s.
Several listed handsets on the online store come with Amazon Prime support to offer free and fast delivery to all Prime members in the country. Amazon is providing cash on delivery on all the used and refurbished smartphones.
Amazon India’s move with the online store for used and refurbished smartphones would give a tough competition to startups like GreenDust, Overcart, Togofogo and Valuecart. It is also likely to give an edge to the US giant to once again take on domestic e-commerce players including Flipkart and Snapdeal.
