    reliance ecommerce prep was going on since 2 years now. Ajio was their beta testing. But reliance announcing officially just one month after new rules shows the number of ****s they give. Its going to be very interesting few years now

    Oh now there is an angle. So if you have a store you don't want then amazon is an interested buyer ?

    Yes

    Didn't know there was any pushing going on.

    You mean there would be no Jio if UPA was still in office ? :D
    --- Post Merged, Jan 20, 2019 ---
    Yes its going to get more competitive. Online is here to say, This is just an adjustment so more local sellers can jump in.

    Customer wins too ? right

    Slowly the picture is forming. Compare to beginning when this thread started and nobody knew what was going on and on that basis started making slams.

    More than likely, it was timed that way. And when did they ever give a shit about rules and regulations or public opinion during Jio launch or even further back in the past to start worrying about stuff now. The rich with political clout can get away with anything.

    To answer that have to figure out how does Ambani's store differ from the likes of amazon & flipkart ?

    Why it will be more small store friendly as is touted

    Thats what I wanted to know. How will ambani store be any different than flipkart/amazon because their ajio store and birlas abof both had similar models to flipkart/amazon. Infact, both of them still sell their own inventory and not other retailers. So I dont know how it will be any more different than flipkart/amazon for those 12 lakh retailers.

    In case anyone has noticed, the eCOM policy has come into effect from 1st Feb. Cloudtail and Appario are gone from Amazon. Everything is selling at 20-30% higher prices or full MRP compared to Cloudtail/Appario. PS4 games that were available at 800-900 are selling for 1200-1500 and games that were around 1700 are over 2000 now from third parties. Same situation in many other product categories.

    Even Echo, Kindle, Fire TV etc are either being sold by by third party vendors or not available at all.

    On Flipkart, about 25% products were expected to disappear.

    Even Prime 1/2 day shipping and FK First will be stopped since they can't give expedited shipping it seems. Now the only reason to buy Prime will be Movies and Music. This country is sucking more and more with every passing year.

    Nah. Just wait and watch. Jio Retail will come soon, and give everything free, like they did in the telecom sector.

    First adani, then paytm and now reliance. Modi is selling the country for election money.
